Crease Above Belly Button - what's the cause and how can I get rid of it?
What you have is an excess in the vertical plane and the only way to take care of that is by direct excision which would mean that you would have an up and down scar. Most patients prefer not to have the up and down scar and are content to have the excess skin in the vertical plane.
Look up "fleur de lis" tummy tuck. This is where a combined incision on both the vertical and horizontal plane are performed at e same time. The advantage is that you get a tightter skin fit around the waist. The drawback is that you have an additional scar that cannot be covered up. Good luck.
