How to remove fat around the abdomen?

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2142/...e6a81a0c22.jpg

Was wondering how I can make this look slimmer.

I've tried photoshop's liquify but it affects the wall behind as well. I'm thinking I have to do some shadow blending, but how?

Extract the person from the background to a separate layer and use one of many tools to slim them. Then either replace the background wall with another one or strech / clone the wall to extend over the area that will be left blank after you slim the person.

Okay, that'd help with slimming the left side, but how can I remove all the folds on the front naturally?

You can use the clone tool or patch tool or combination thereof. I did this example in just a few minutes using Liquify to reshape the edges and one swoosh with the clone tool to lessen the crease along the waist.
