Post op liposuction
By now you should see more of a contour especially in the lower abdomen.
If this doesn't get better and you don't want more surgery, you could try coolsulpting which works really well for that area with no downtown.
Our patients are very happy with it.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!

At that point, though, my guess is that more lipo will be the best choice. You should, of course, be assessed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who can see you in person and examine you. If you have any hesitations, seek a second opinion.
I hope that this helps and good luck,

The importance in making a correct assessment
The ideal liposuction patient typically has tight skin, tight muscle layers and thick layers of body fat that are in undesirable places. Anyone who has muscle separation from pregnancy or loose skin or intra-abdominal fat will not see impressive results from liposuction.
It's not quite clear what your pictures depict. Perhaps you could repost and state which pictures are from before the procedure and which are from after the procedure and how many weeks after the procedure the pictures were taken. Lack of results can also be seen when liposuction is not done to the extent needed for the best outcome.
Some patients benefit from aggressive liposuction where the majority of fat is removed in order to get the best contour. Other patients should not have the majority of fat removed because of negative implications that can happen when liposuction is done in an aggressive manner.
Perhaps a second opinion is in order.
Best of luck,

An examination would be necessary to determine your options. Solely based on your photos, it looks like you might benefit from a revision liposuction surgery and not an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
Best of luck!
