Defining a 2-D surface in a 3d geometry

I am Using Ansys 14.0. I want to define a surface (a circle) on my 3-d geometry. But the design modeler software needs thickness and does not creates a surface in a 3D geometry. I need to determine this circle on a part of my geometry, because I need to calculate something specifically for this circle are in FLUENT. So I need to define a name for it in (named selection) then I will be able to select that in FLUENT and calculate for that area. What should I do?:confused:

Please help me with this. Thank you.

can you be more clear.
Just click with right button mouse on the FACE you want, for that you need to filter the selection mode to FACE. and insert a named selection. What software are you using for meshing it can be done in the meshing process as well...
