Tummy yes, BBL probably no

You look like a full TT would give you a nice result potentially but I can't see that you have enough fat to do a BBL. See several Board Certified plastic surgeons for exams and advice.

Hard to Tell

+2

It is very hard to tell if a tummy tuck is the only thing that you need. The 2 images do not really depict your full abdomen. I think that if you have loose skin a tummy tuck, either mini or full will help. Unfortunately, there is not too much that can be done to make all the stretch marks disappear. I recommend you consult with a respectable Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss your desires so that you can get a "Realistic" idea of what you can have done.

Bikini here I come

+1

Yes. Height and weight are not  the main issue. Your skin would be significantly improved with TT. In fact your slim build would only make the result better

Good candidate for an abdominoplasty not a BBL

+1

You would certainly be a good candidate for an abdominoplasty and should get a nice result.  I do not think you have enough fat for a BBL.

Tummy tuck - yes, BBL - not likely

+1

As others have indicated, you would probably get a nice improvement with a tummy tuck, but appear to be to lean for a good result with a BBL.  I think it unlikely that all of the stretch marks will be removed with a tummy tuck, but a majority of them will go away.  And those stretch marks that are left will be on taut skin where they do not show as much.

   The second picture reveals a little more skin laxity and fat than the first.  Tummy tuck is probably appropriate but an exam would be necessary.  You may be a Brazilian buttlift candidate as well judging from the second picture.  However, the amount of fat transferred would be far less than what I would normally transfer, which is 1200 cc to 1500 cc per buttock.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
