However, it is hard to tell from the pictures alone if you have loose skin and/or weakening of your abdominal muscles. If this was the case then this would require an abdominoplasty along with the liposuction to give you the best results. The only way to really determine this is by being evaluated in person.
I hope this helps and best of luck! Please make sure you are evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon!

How to make waist 3-4 inches smaller
Honestly, you need a formal exam by a Board Certified plastic surgeon to give you a definite answer. Liposuction can work, but this is assuming most of your problem is excessive fat. The strength of your abdominal wall needs to be determined - if it is weak - then a TT will be best. Liposuction alone will not help you if a weak abdominal wall is the issue. I routinely cinch the sides of the waist during a TT to achieve the look you are wishing for.
Best wishes and kind regards,

You look great. That said, I can't really tell you the best procedure for you and I'm not sure anyone can guarantee you a 4"smaller waist.
I hate to punt here, but you really do need to visit with a plastic surgeon and review your complete medical/surgical history, and not only what you want to achieve, but what you will not tolerate (recovery, scars, etc.).
Best of luck to you .

From your photos, you appear to be an excellent candidate for Vaser Hi definition liposculpture with fat grafting to the buttocks. You should get a great result from liposculpture, giving you a more contoured and hourglass shape with better projection to your buttocks.
I have done many body contouring procedures and specialize in Vaser Hi Definition liposculpture. Vaser Hi Definition body sculpting requires extensive specialized training. I am one of few surgeons in the United States that was personally trained by Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the surgeon that developed this technique.
Vaser Hi Definition liposuction uses the concepts of negative and positive spaces in relation to the underlying bony and muscle anatomy to define areas such as your six pack and create an athletic looking physique.
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.

You already have a nice body, so the goal would be to refine your feminine curves by targeting the abdomen and hips / love handles. The skin then retracts over the new shape to give the final result. If you want a little extra emphasis on your curves, you might also consider a Brazilian butt lift. That said, you definitely have to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety.
A key quality indicator is Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Don’t settle for less!
