24 Year Old Interested in Thermage After Weight Lost?

Hello, I gained weight rapidly in high school and lost it pretty rapidly as well.. Over the years I have done a very good job of "chiseling" my body to the way I want it. I have been at the weight of 175 for two years now down from 235 . Long story short I have some looseness or saggyness in my lower belly area. Nothing too major where I feel the scar of a panniculectomy or mini tummy tuck is worth it however I would like to improve it if possible. My question is ... Will thermage be successful

Without examining you, it is difficult to give an opinion.  Thermage can tighten loose skin but does not take the place of a tummy tuck.  You should consult a board certified plastic surgeon or surgical dermatologist who offers both Thermage and tummy tucks to obtain a recommendation.

Without a photo, it's impossible to respond to your question. You may also want to look into Vaser liposuction which combines lipo with tightening.
