Mini abdominoplasty 9 PO and soon after I noticed a bulge of loose fat above my belly button. What do you suggest? (photo)

I had a mini abdominoplasty after I noticed a bulge of loose fat in the top of my stomach. I could grab a hand full. As well as it lays over my jeans. My lower stomach looked tight but round and as if I'm 4 months pregnant my belly button is a mess almost the size of a quarter. Any suggestions would help. I will be doing a revision. My surgeon is suggesting using some silk mesh material. He is very knowledgeable and board certified by I'm very nervous.

Of course, anything above the navel would not have been addressed by a mini-TT. I will assume nothing was done to the navel given that this was a mini-TT. 

These front views alone are difficult to interpret. I cannot tell that there is fat excess as you describe. Nor can I see any bulging that you have seen, but that would require a side view. 

There is really not enough info here to offer a specific suggestion. Please consider reposting your question with more views. All the best.
