You may be a great candidate for a tummy tuck and lipo combination.
It’s difficult to fully evaluate your situation without examining you or seeing photos, however, it sounds like you may be a great candidate for post-weight loss body contouring procedures. Most people who lose a significant amount of weight and have had children have some degree of concern with saggy or excess skin and the overall contours of the body. Luckily, there are many cosmetic procedures that can address a multitude of concerns and help you feel more confident. To decide which procedure or combination of procedures is best for you, visit a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring to discuss your options. It sounds like you could greatly benefit from a tummy tuck, possibly combined with liposuction.

Tummy Tuck - Am I A Candidate?
A number of possibilities
It is difficult to tell exactly whats going on without examining you or seeing photos, but one possibility is that the diastasis was not repaired in the upper abdomen. Often when a "mini" tummy tuck is done, the muscles below the belly button are repaired and the muscles above the belly button are not repaired. The end result is something like what you are describing. It could be a result of fluid or fatty excess, but the best thing would be for you to see your surgeon and discuss your concerns. Best of luck to you.
Thank you for your question Unfortunately you don't have any pictures. It sounds like you need a tummy tuck and possible flank left. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat and tightens the tummy muscle. I invented the Malibu tummy tuck. This gives a very natural looking tummy and bellybutton. In addition pain and recovery are significantly less versus traditional technique It is not uncommon for patients to take only Tylenol for pain after surgery.
