In my opinion I believe that you would make a great candidate for a tummy tuck procedure. Your abdominal muscles will be repaired and your scar would be gone.

Tummy tuck for loose skin and scarring?
Based on limited photos and medical history a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with or without liposuction of selective areas may improve the cosmetic appearance of your abdomen.
Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
