Brazilian lipoabdominoplasty or SmartLipo
Thank you for your question and photographs.It is important when scheduling a consultation for cosmetic surgery that you find a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery. I think you would be a good candidate for a Brazilian lipoabdominoplasty. This procedure is the combination of liposuction and a traditional tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck I tighten the diastasis rectus muscle which brings in the waist then I cut out the excess skin to achieve overall, a smaller waist with a nice flat abdomen and a thin scar hidden below the bikini line. With the use of topical scar creams or lasers, this can further diminish the scar line to make it less visible. Then the use of liposuction will help remove any excess fat deposits along with creating a nice, smooth silhouette. If you are opposed to having a tummy tuck done then you may want to consider SmartLipo which loosens then removes fat and tightens the overlying skin with the use of a laser, reducing bulges of fat while simultaneously toning the body.
Good luck in your endeavors!

Regardless who you choose, make certain there certified only by the "American Board of plastic surgery". Not any other "cosmetic board". This make certain that the surgeon has had several years of training specifically in plastic surgery, thereby making your result much more likely to be safe and effective. Please see my attached video to help you understand the nature of the procedure.
Best of luck! Dr. Subbio
