I you have a "Belly Flap" it is NOT pssible to fix with det and exercise. This is a surgical mistake the doctor didn't place the fat back and over compensated the skin withuout matching up the line where the stomach fat actually was before surgery. The doctor stapled or stiched the skin after the uterus was closed but the retractor held open your skin and this needed to be compensated when putting the outer skin layers back together. The result is a flap and it needs to be fixed surgically.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Exercises which concentrate more only on the musculature of lower abdomen can help you if you really want to avoid a surgery. An expert instructor can guide you well about the beneficial exercises.
