In Dorland's "reflection" means a bending or turning back. I have typed the expression often and am not truly sure how to explain it, but something like where the bladder is bent or folded onto the abdominal wall - as a location. Below is an excert from Google. What comes up in the notes I have is the following expression:
The anterior leaflet of the broad ligament on both sides was then incised along the bladder reflection to the midline from both sides and the bladder was gently dissected
The reflection of bladder on to the anterior abdominal wall is identified and the peritoneum divided at this position
