Body lifting after 50 pound weight loss
Thank you for asking about your body lifting.
- Before you know the cost, you need a plan as to what is needed.
- Start with a detailed consultation to discuss every thing you don't like and the best treatment.
- It will probably be a combination of removal of excess skin (body lifting) and liposuction.
- Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Best wishes - Elizabeth

Liposuction vs. tummy tuck
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to determine what is best suited for you based on your pictures. I would recommend an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if liposuction or a tummy tuck would best address your concerns. Best of luck to you!
In person exam required
Its not easy to tell from the pictures, but you might do better with liposuction. Abdominoplasty
treats the skin excess and muscle weakness of the abdomen, as well as any fat
that is between the belly button and the pubic hairline. Liposuction
treats only fat. It can be used to thin out the abdomen, but the skin
must be in good condition with no excess, and there should not be muscle
weakness. I do not like to combine abdominoplasty with liposuction
because of the added risks of fluid collection under the skin, and wound
healing problems as well as a significant increase in the risk of blood clots in
the legs and lungs (VTE).
Liposuction of abdomen and torso
Based on your photos and your age I would suggest aggressive liposuction which will include abdomen, flanks (love handles) and back. It is reasonable to expect that your skin will shrink and that you will not need any skin removal (abdominoplasty, tummy tuck).
However, without detailed clinical evaluation it is impossible to give you better answer. You should consult a board certified plastic surgeon and discuss your options. Good luck.

It seems to me that the redundant skin is mild and is hard to see the stretch marks with these pictures, but you have the option of doing minimally invasive procedures, like Fractora which is micro needling with radiofrequency, it will help both the stretch marks will do skin tightening. You could also have a more invasive procedure, like lipotherm, which is laser liposuction, it will remove any redundant fat and will also stimulate collagen for skin tightening. Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area that offers these procedures, for more information.
