Ugly tummy. What's the best way to make these stretch marks, scars and loose skin disappear? (Photo)

Addressing stretch marks and C-section scars
I would recommend combining this with plication (tightening) of the muscles to center them (they have likely spread apart with all of your pregnancies) and with liposuction, which would help with contouring.
This procedure would ideally be done when you have finished having children and have been at a stable weight for at least six months and preferably longer. From your photo, I suspect you are at a healthy weight overall and would be a great candidate for this surgery. Good luck.
Ugly tummy. Best operation?
Generally speaking, the “ideal” patient for tummy tuck surgery is one who has completed pregnancies, is psycho socially/emotionally/financially stable, has an excellent social support system surrounding him/her, is capable of arranging enough recovery time, does not smoke and who has reached a long-term stable weight.
When the time is right, seek consultation with well experienced board certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you would be pleased with. It will be important to educate yourself about the potential risks/complications associated with surgery and have a good idea of realistic expectations.
Do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on cost of surgery. I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.
