Stretch marks and liposuction
Lipousction will not improve stretch marks, in fact they may get worse after liposuction. It is diffiuclt to predict. If your skin is very loose you may need a different procedure than liposuction.
Liposuction alone will not be good if you have a lot of stretch marks
If you have a lot of stretch marks, liposuction will make your abdomen worse. You need a combination of Liposuction and Tummy Tucks in order to get the best result. Otherwise your skin will look wrinkled.

Stretch marks and liposuction
Flabby skin indicates loose folding skin, not being tight. You might get good stretch back after liposuction but the texture of the skin won't change. The stretch marks will still be there but without examining your skin elasticity, it is impossible to say that your skin would retract back or hang over, after liposuction. There can not be a guarantee, even after an examination, that you will retract the skin so that it appears tight after liposuction.
You need tummy tuck
If you have extra skin and also extra fatty tissue, lipo will remove the fat and not the skin. the combination of the lipo and tummy tuck will give you the best result.
Liposuction will NOT tighten skin OR remove Stretch Marks

Liposuction is a fantastic tool to remove and sculpt fat but it will NOT tighten skin much less remove scars or stretch marks. If your skin is loose, this will worsen after liposuction. You need to balance your cosmetic wishes against what each operation can or cannot do for you. In this case, you MAY do better with a Tummy Tuck which for the price of a scar will remove all loose skin, narrow the waist and flatten the tummy.
Liposuction May Make Stretch Marks WORSE
Without pictures to see, it is really hard to say. However, the chances are that if you do undergo liposuction, it may make your skin more flabby and loose. You will have less fat tehre, but more loose skin and maybe more noticeable stretch marks. I would talk with a plastic surgeon and voice your concerns with them during your consultation.

No photos so my guess is YES! Seek at least 3 boarded surgeons in your area to discuss this issue with them. But the chances of FLABBY skin is real. From MIAMI DR. B
