Follow-Up Question: What's wrong with my upper tummy
What you have is visceral fat protruding from inside the abdomen outward in an area where tightening the muscles is difficult to do. The only thing that will make it better is significant weight loss and at that point you might need the muscles re-tightened in the upper abdomen
Upper abdominal bulge
There are probably a couple of reasons for the bulge. First is that the lower abdomen has been tightened, and it is possible that some of the sutures placed in the upper abdomen loosened. However, the bigger problem is that you probably have too much intra-abdominal fat---fat that is inside around your internal organs. This unfortunately cannot be removed surgically and can only be decreased by diet and exercise.
