A simple quick focal touch up lipo would improve this area.

A simple quick focal touch-up lipo would improve this area provided the area is caused by localized fat.  Some people have a periumbilical hernia.  That should also be ruled out.

Looks like a very good result. Just needs some additional lipo in that area under local anesthesia to solve your issue.
