From pictures can you suggest if results look normal (sorry I don't have pre-op pics but I am not a big person had lose skin and lot of stretch marks after 3 pregnancies. I am 5.5 & 130lbs). 4. Once the swelling is gone will I have flat stomach & smooth stretch marks ( had above BB stretch marks). PS was board certified

It takes weeks for all the swelling to settle down.  Based on your photos, you should expect a very good result.  Follow your Plastic Surgeon's instructions for a complete recovery!  Best wishes!
