Liposuction or tummy tuck
It also appears as though you have a good deal of skin laxity. From the photographs you show ultimately you may be a better candidate for skin tightening procedures such as tummy tuck.
if you continue to lose weight the skin will get looser and you will be an even better candidate for skin tightening procedures but your surgical risks will diminish.
I would recommend you consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon
Liposuction versus Tummy Tuck
Liposuction (particularly Laser Liposuction or SmartLipo) can remove fat and tighten the skin but only a tummy tuck can tighten the muscle. The muscle is what causes the bulge to the central and lower abdomen. The rectus muscles (six pack) actually get stretched during pregnancy. A tummy tuck tightens these muscles with an internal "corset" suture. This gets rid of the bulge. The tummy tuck can also remove stretch marks by getting rid of most of the skin between the pubic hair line and the belly button.
If you are willing to accept a low scar (just above the pubic hair) and you are ok with a longer procedure with more recovery time, a tummy tuck will provide the best appearance long term.
