    What have women who have gone through their abdominal surgeries done to get rid of the "front-butt" flab?

    My surgery was over a year ago, but I have a lopsided bulge on both sides of my incision scar. What type of exercise/diet will work to get back to a flat stomach?

      For me, getting rid of my flabby belly hasn't crossed my mind. True, it's not the prettiest thing to look at. I'm just happy to still be alive. My main concern is hoping that this cancer hasn't metastasized to my brain. *sigh*

      While passing through Target I found 'control top' panties. Its been 7 years since I had my surgery for the same reason... Stage IV though......I still have my, "baby but' but these panties keep my tummy flat for the world to see and he that said I was beautiful through all the chemo and hairloss, etc. Keeps telling me I'm beautiful. God has blessed me greatly with life and I can live it with him. Cancer Free

      Oh yes... try asking your surgeon oncologist... I'm sure you're not the first one to want to get rid of it. I just have a bad back and most exercises would be bad... However.. Sit Ups always work to improve the stomach buldge... Plus heck... at all but 70,,,, I'm a lot older than you. Good luck. I'm sure you'll be able to do this. Hecki you beat cancer. Go girl...

      My lower abdomen or belly as I call it protrudes more than it use to although I have lost weight. I wear control top panties which helps some. My stomach above my waist has the "baby butt." I wear shapewear most of the time especially when I go out. It flattens it a little but mostly stops the "jiggle." It's bothersome to me too but in the grand scheme of things is not that important.
