In brief: Loose belly skin

Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall.
This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging after major weight loss.

In brief: Tincture of time...

... Is often all that is necessary.
Given time, the excess skin will resorb by itself. If your weight loss is really dramatic (say, over 100 pounds), you may need to see a plastic surgeon to discuss a "tummy tuck.".
