Tummy shaping options
The photo does not show enough to help me make a recommendation. You will want to upload a photo of your abdomen from the front and side showing the bottom half of your breasts all the way down to your pubic bone. In general substantial and long lasting skin tightening requires some form of surgery. Which tummy tightening options would be best for you will require a better set of photos to start with.
All the best,

Excess skin after baby
I am so sorry but the photo didn 't show the problem. If the stretch marks and excess skin are in your lower tummy, a mini-tuck may be possible but you do need to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to see if this will fix what is bothering you.
Here’s hoping you find this helpful. Have a great day!

Once you are ready for the procedure, I would likely recommend a full tummy tuck with abdominal wall tightening along with some liposuction to the hips/flanks for additional contouring. This would remove the excess skin/soft tissue and stretch marks while contouring your belly. You should consult with a plastic surgeon at anytime to go over options to assist you in deciding which procedure(s) would be right for you. Best wishes!
