Hysterectomy: Having a droopy belly after a hysterectomy problably is not related at all. If your ovaries were removed, you are in menopause, and menopausal patients have weight changes affecting their life. We tend to accumulate more fatty tissue around this area, and patients in menopause can have this effect even faster. Weight loss and a healthy balanced diet should help.

Abdominoplasty: You can try exercise, weight management, abdominoplasty or liposuction depending on what is causing your problem. Hysterectomy doesn't change your body configuration except for incisions and related scars.
