Thermage may be able to treat the loose skin and make the area better. A tummy tuck is always the most successful, but, is of course, major surgery. A tummy tuck will not treat the stretch marks. A combination of V-Beam and Fraxel should help you with those.
Considering Thermage or Mini Tummy Tuck for Stretch Marks and Loose Skin on Tummy, What Would Be the Best Option? (photo)
Doctor Answers (6)
Stretch marks and loose skin may be treated with lasers
Thermage or Liposuction and Tummmy tuck.
While Liposuction and Tummy Tuck will give you excellent results, your condition,as seen from the photos, may respond also to Thermage. I have seen very good results on patients with looser skin than that seen on your photos.Thermage is much less invasive than the other two procedures
As for the stretch marks, up to 40% or 50% improvement can be obtained with Fractional Laser Resurfacing.

Thermage vs. Tummy Tuck...
Liposuction and tummy tuck would be your best option, for optimal results. Thermage will not give you the results you are looking for.
Hope this helps.

Thermage will probably not tighten and lift enough for you. A tummy tuck with liposuction would be a consideration for you but you may also require a fractional resurfacing laser to help the stretch marks.
