Can the "Flap" From my C-section be Fixed?

Since my son's birth my weight has fluctuated a bunch (between 20 and 70 lbs) due to a suspected thyroid disorder and PCOS that my OB/GYN thinks we'll have under control soon. Now,my belly has suffered through all of this, I have the weird c-section flap/apron/whatever over the lower part of my stomach and my belly button looks odd. I keep losing weight, but I look softer and less toned than ever. I have made the health choices necessary to get my body back, but how can surgery help me? Thanks!

Fixing the abdomen

It looks like you could still lose some weight but after, a full tummy tuck will tighten the muscles, flatten the abdominal wall, and remove the excess skin and fat apron in the lower abdomen.
