We discuss the renormalization induced by interactions of a two-dimensional truncated Fermi surface (FS) model. Using a field-theoretical renormalization group method, we calculate the critical renormalized physical chemical potential which may take different values along the Fermi surface. We show that FS is strongly renormalized by interactions in two dimensions. As a result of that, FS can be further truncated in those k-space regions where non-trivial fixed points produce a smooth momentum distribution function in the vicinity of the Fermi surface.
