Smart Lipo in Petite Patients
Seeing the photos that you have posted, you appear to be a good candidate for Smart Lipo. I have treated petite patients with belly fat before and the procedure looks like something that would take care of your problem area. Just be sure to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for your procedure

Smart Liposuction for Abs
Without a photo it's difficult to say whether or not you're a candidate. Your issue could be fat, skin or muscle. I recommend having a consultation or submitting a front and side view photo of your abdomen to see if you are a surgical candidate. If so, if you'll benefit from Smart Liposuction.

As stated by others, some photos and ideally an examination is the only way to truly answer this question. If your problem is just some localized unresponsive fat then smart/slim (laser) lipo is right for you. Given your height and weight you may only have a small area of concern. Small areas may only require oral sedation to keep you comfortable.
Liposuction of abdomen
It is quite possible to debulk the fatty layer of your abdomen with liposuction if you have a significant fattty component. If your muscles are loose becasue of a diastasis, then the liposuction will not flatten your abdomen. An exam in person is essential.
You need to be examined before anyone can make that decision. Is your problem fat or muscle? The latter will not respond to liposuction.
