'develop a stomach bulge' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether it can be defined by this definition.

'i with no end of human brilliance managed' is the wordplay.
'with no end of' means to remove the last letter.
'managed' indicates an anagram.
'human' with its final letter taken off is 'huma'.
'ihumabrilliance' is an anagram of 'UMBILICAL HERNIA'.

'to' acts as a link.
