Thank you for your question and photographs. I am sorry you are disappointed with your results. I do agree that your belly button is sitting quite low and you have a bulge in your lower abdomen. I would recommend a revision with a Brazilian lipoabdominoplasty, this procedure is the combination of liposuction and a traditional tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck I tighten the diastasis rectus muscle which brings in the waist, yours may need tightened a little more, then I cut out the excess skin to achieve overall, a smaller waist with a nice flat abdomen. Then the use of liposuction will help remove any excess fat deposits (bulging) along with creating a nice, smooth silhouette. I would also recreate a new belly button that would sit in a more natural position on your torso. I hope this helps.
