What can I do about this belly fat?
All the best,
Treatment of a large abdominal pannus liposuction versus abdominoplasty.

Making the correct diagnosis
I suggest starting with weight loss. If you are done having children, then a full abdominoplasty would be the correct procedure.
Best of luck,

Abdominal fat and..
Your abdominal fat is only part of the problem. Your skin is very stretched and there are many stretch marks. This indicates that the excess skin must be addressed too. This means that you are not a candidate for liposuction. You may be a candidate for a panniculectomy with lipo (+/_).
On your lateral view as well as your frontal view, you appear to have a very thick fat pad. This leads me to believe that you have an elevated BMI, and should lose weight first, keep that weight stable, and be in excellent health so that you will be physiologically ready to undergo a vigorous body contouring procedure when the time is right.
Best to you .
