  • 2 Quad Pot Belly Questions

    I've read the previous posts regarding quad pot bellies. My belly seems to be growing as well. 2 questions. Can liposuction be used at all? Does a growing quad pot belly present a risk for developing a hernia? Thanks.

    If you have read the previous posts, you know that the problem is not is stretched out paralyzed muscle. Liposucton would of course not help with that.

    Hernia is possible, but unless you had a hernia before your injury, you are unlikely to get one in your abdomen now.
