Thank you for your question and photographs.
I do not see evidence of excessive loose skin so I do not think you would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Due to your age and problem areas, you seem to be a good candidate seeing as you are young, healthy and will have good skin elasticity. I offer Smartlipo Triplex for patients in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas looking for a minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. SmartLipo loosens then removes fat and tightens the overlying skin, reducing bulges of fat while simultaneously toning the body. It also offers tissue retraction through soft tissue coagulation, reliable, controlled energy delivery, reduced liposuction procedure time and patient downtime, less bleeding and bruising than traditional liposuction and high-definition body sculpting capabilities. Smartlipo also delivers precision and versatility with wavelengths that are ideal for smaller and larger fat deposits, tissue retraction, fibrous areas, or secondary liposuction cases.
Best of luck in your endeavors!

Smartlipo vs tummy tuck.
You have a great figure, you are young and healthy and you have great skin. Plus you appear to have some good abdominal muscles! You are a great candidate for aggressive liposuction to remove the excess fat and have the skin shrink over the smaller fat layer.
You do not need a TT. Smartlipo should be helpful

Good question. I believe liposuction would provide you with a great result that you are looking for. Sometimes these procedure can be done awake or asleep.

Tummy Tuck vs. VASER Liposuction with Fat Transfer
I suggest seeking a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon. By the photos posted you do not seem like a candidate for Tummy Tuck with Liposuction. Without seeing you in person hi definition body contouring with VASER liposuction and fat transfer to your breasts/buttocks would be a great alternative and would offer definition/shape to your already small frame. Non-invasive skin tightening options are available, depending on the laxity of your skin. Please seek an expert on this procedure. Best always, Dr. Berger
