I have had two pregnancies (c-sections), am in good shape but cannot loose the belly fat. I would love to have Vaser Lipo instead of a tt because of recovery time. Is it possible to do vaser and then another skin tightening procedure if vaser does not do the job or would I just be wasting time and money?

Liposuction or tummy tuck?
This is one of the most common questions "liposuction or tummy tuck?". Although I use SmartLipo liposuction, which does produce some shrinkage of skin, it does not repair the muscle laxity or eliminate the stretch marks. You have a bit of excess fatty tissue, muscle laxity, and stretch marks. Therefore, a tummy tuck would provide the best result.
Tummy tuck or lipo
You are an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck which should also include some lipo for the best result. Don't be fooled by advertisements claiming laser lipo will tighten skin. Good luck.
Tummy tuck or liposuction
Just based upon your photos, it looks like a tummy tuck may be the better of the two options. The liposuction will not improve the loose skin.

Based on the pictures, I would not expect any form of liposuction to tighten the skin enough. You could certainly try it but I would suspect that eventually you are going to need a tummy tuck to reach your goal.
