At this point you know the muscle repair is intact, but you still have a bulge. Although tightening the fascia overlying the muscles does allow the muscles to be brought back to the center, it does not strengthen the muscles. After surgery, your abdominal fascia has shown that it will lose strength fairly quickly. I think you unfortunately have a lower strength facial layer than most. I do not think another surgery will fix this. You would likely have the same problem again.
I would suggest strengthening your muscular layer. This means core exercises such as sit ups, leg lifts, etc. I think this will help you late day issues. Your morning pictures look fantastic! I think you just need a bit more abdominal strength to stay flat through the evening.
