Multiple procedures with a tummy tuck

You are describing a tummy tuck, which by the look of your pictures, will be the better part of three hours in my hands.  You then describe a half dozen areas of liposuction.  This will not be possible safely in five to five and a half hours, which is a generally accepted gage of operative time in aesthetic procedures.  The cost will also be a question.  Make sure you have a quality, board certified plastic surgeon.

All the best,
