Adding End Conditions to Flex Feature?

I'm using the flex feature on a solidworks plastic part, meant to be plastic with live hinges. In what should not have been a surprise to me, the flex operation left unwanted artifacts in portions of my part which should not have changed (see pictures).

 

The flex feature doesn't seem to allow you to set end conditions, as it is a pair of planes running through the part that define the location and tightness of the bend. Am I missing something that will allow me to use flex without picking up other unwanted part features intersected by the plane, that, realistically, would not be able to be bent because they aren't a part of the same tab?
