Good candidate for tummy tuck?
Thank you for sharing your photos. If you did not respond well to lipo, I may consider conservative measures by continued diet and exercise and not having surgery. If this does not work and you want the tightest possible result, you may be a candidate for a mini tummy tuck with liposuction of the upper abdomen and flanks.
Good candidate for abdominoplasty if resulting scar is acceptable.
Your abdomen is in good shape after pregnancy but excess skin can be removed. It will result in a horizontal incision across the lower abdomen. Whether this is better than the modest amount of loose skin is a decision only you can make.
From the photos you show, I think your tummy looks good and you don't need a tummy tuck. Also, you don't need buttock augmentation.

Do you have excess skin that can be pinched when standing upright?
If not, you do not need a tummy tuck. Even if there was a little extra skin, only you can decide if its worth the costs and scarring that result from a tummy tuck. From your photos alone, I do not think I could make it much better when you stand. Everyone has excess skin when sitting.
