I am trying to reduce my abdominal fat so that I can see my abs :) currently my BMI is around 22, which is a normal weight, I do Running and weight training every alternate day, and to reduce weight seems to be easy, but problem is as I reduce weight further I see more effect on my face than abdomen, I feel abdomen is within reach (about 1 inch fat) but I am scared to reduce weight lest my face will look too skinny.

So is there any way to reduce fat from abdomen without loosing fat from face?

Maybe you just look more tired or you're dehydrated. If you're BMI is where you say I doubt your face has a lot of excess fat, unless you have a big underhang below your chin. What areas of your face seem to be getting "skinnier"? – VISQL May 14 '12 at 19:40

No. You can't target your fat loss to a particular region. See these answers for more details:
