Can you describe abdominal prolapse? Do you mean uterine prolapse?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I have had a complete hysterectomy 2 years not obese, I am 5 ft 4 in and weigh 130. But my dropped belly is uncomfortable and unattractive. I am in my 80's but in otherwise good health.
I exercise regularly and am aware of good nutrition. It also seems to make it difficult to take a deep breath.

Not sure that i have any good answers for you. It seems as though you are doing all the right things. Exercise and diet would be my 2 leading suggestions. The only other thing that I can think of (but wouldnt really suggest, unless you are in great shape) would be to have surgery done to tighten up that area. Sorry I couldnt be of more help.
