Is lipo enough?
This opinion is based solely on photographs, and there are significant limitations to the counseling we can offer without seeing you in person.
Seek a board certified plastic surgeon to help you weigh your options, expectations, and recovery time.

Liposuction or tummy tuck?
you are correct in thinking that liposuctioning is easier to recover from than a full tummy tuck, but this should be a question of which( or should both be used) is correct for you.
Good luck to you.

Thank you for your question. It would be difficult to determine based on photos alone, but it appears that you might have enough excess skin to warrant a tummy tuck as liposuction alone could leave loose, hanging skin. In addition, if you have abdominal muscle separation this can contribute to a rounded looking abdomen and liposuction cannot address that.
