How to resolve this problem?

Based on the photos, you appear to be a good candidate for liposuction of the entire waist especially with a combination of SMART lipo and suction assisted liposuction.  This combination allows for the best skin shrinkage while also removing the breakdown products of the fat providing the smoother and more dramatic results.  Find a plastic surgeon in your area and go in for a consultation.Good luck

Depending on the look you desire there are two options available.  Liposuction can reduce the fat in the abdominal area, but it will not remove any skin.  A tummy tuck will remove excess skin as well contour the abdominal area.  The side/flank area can be addressed through liposuction.  Visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a consultation to learn more about these procedures.
