Here's a python script I wrote specifically for this...mostly out of curiosity. I don't know what's changed in the python sdk between R17 and R21 so this may not work. You're welcome to test it and let me know how it works out.

Run the script with one or multiple objects selected and with as many polygons as you wish per object - must be in polygon mode.
It will iterate through the selected objects and only apply the ops to individual polygons on the relevant selections.

You can also do this manually by:
1. selecting polygons
2. selecting the 'extrude inner' tool
3. setting the extrude inner options as follows (not absolutely necessary):
max angle: 180 (whatever)
offset: 0
subs: 1
preserve groups: off
variance: 0
create n-gons: off
4. After performing an inner extrude, then run the 'collapse' command (right click in viewport).
