Goin off of the pictures I am uploading, would Lipo be enough to flatten my stomach & slim down my torso? I am 18 and 5'8 for reference. If not, what procedure would best suit what i'm looking for. I am very active and despite of my body changes, my stomach simply will not tighten

Thank you for the question and pictures.
Liposuction is best done when patients are close to their long-term stable weight. It is not meant to help with the weight loss “program”. To help with the weight loss/control consultation with a nutritionist and/or weight loss specialist may be helpful.
When you have reached your stable long-term weight the operation that is “best" for you will be based on your exact goals and physical examination. For example, “seeking a flat stomach” may mean different things to different people; communication with your plastic surgeon in person is critical. If there is a failure to communicate exactly your goals are there is a high likelihood that you will be disappointed with the results of surgery.
I would suggest consultation with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.
I hope this helps.
