Weight loss before tummy tuck will improve your results.
However if you want the best tummy tuck results you should try to lose weight first. The excess fat beneath the skin will prevent the surgeon from tightening the skin as much as possible. Please consult a board certified plastic surgeon.
Tummy tuck help get rid of stretch marks?
A tummy tuck would get rid of most of your stretch marks. You do not appear to be a good candidate for liposuction alone, unfortunately. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!

TT and stretch marks
During Tt it is easy to fix an umbilicus hernia and it represents an easy and short procedure during TT
you have to know if the hernia got repaired as a different procedure (non during TT) the blood circulation of the navel is cut permanently.
So if you are thinking on doing a TT in the near future, I definitely will recommend to do the hernia repair during TT.
Tummy tuck with Hernia repair, and stretch mark removal
It appears that a tummy tuck would remove the majority of your stretch marks. Selective liposuction at the same time can help refine your shape as well. I also often perform hernia repair at the same time as tummy tuck.
