Tummy tuck or liposuction
You need to be examined physically to determine best option for you. However, looking at your photo, it appears that you have excess subcutaneous fat as well as excess skin. Liposuction on its own will help get rid of the excess fat. However, once the excess fat is gone your skin may not retract enough and you will be left with loose excess skin. Ideally, you would benefit from a Lipo-Abdominoplasty which will give you a nice shapely tummy.
Hello, Thank you for your question. You appear to be a great candidate for a tummy tuck which will remove excess fat and skin from your lower abdomen. You could also add liposuction which will help you achieve your desired look. I suggest booking in a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine the best plan for you.
We wish you the best of luck!

Thank you for your question and photo.
Evaluating from your photos you apper to be a very good candidate for Tummy Tuck and Liposuction this will give you your desired results. If you are unhappy with the look of your nose, you think that you would be much happier after a rhinoplasty operation; if you had an accident and the shape of your nose got worsened after this accident; then you can be a good candidate for rhinoplasty operation. It is a well-known fact that individuals with feeling themselves beautiful have higher self-esteem. Therefore; if the look or functionality of your nose bothers you, you can get benefit from a rhinoplasty operation.

You May Have Better Results With a Tummy Tuck
From your photograph, you look to be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Fat removal through liposuction can exacerbate loose skin and leave you with more sagging skin tissue. A tummy tuck combined with liposuction could be a great option for you and may get rid of your stretch marks if you wish.
Ultimately, the decision is up to you, but it’s best to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon about your desired results to determine if liposuction or a tummy tuck (or both) is right for you. Good luck!
Liposuction or tummy tuck?
- In the photo at least, it looks as though you need a tummy tuck with liposuction at the sides.
- But to be sure this is right, you need to be examined and discuss the pros/cons of the two procedures.
- Some women - even though we, the surgeon feel a tummy tuck is better - find a liposuction is not as good but satisfactory - it is a personal decision.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Tummy tuck versus liposuction
It appears as though a tummy tuck will give you the best results. I think that if you just do liposuction you'll have so much excess skin afterward you won't be happy. However, I'd need to see you in consultation to give you a more detailed and exact evaluation.Thank you for your question!Dr. Schreiber, Baltimore plastic surgeon
