Based on your photos, I think you are a candidate for a full tummy tuck and body contouring with fat transfer to the butt region to accentuate that area. I do NOT recommend anything else. NO smartlipo or any other procedure that does not involve a tummy tuck. You will not be happy and you're better off keeping your body as it looks now and do nothing. Good luck
Hello,Based on your photos, I would say you are a great candidate for tumescent liposuction by an experienced physician. It looks like your elasticity is pretty good, and I would suggest trying lipo alone vs a big surgery with a big scar.Best,Dr. Malouf
From your photos, you appear to be a good candidate for a full tummy tuck. Liposuction will remove fat but will not correct your skin laxity.
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
Best of luck!

Liposuction can be a good option if you take into account skin laxity. I would use a combination of Liposuction combined with lipocavitation, Liposonix, skin tightening, and Ultherapy.
Thank you for your question and photos. It appears that you would benefit most from a full tummy tuck given the degree of skin laxity that you present above and below the belly button. Liposuction alone will remove fat but will not correct for the loose, saggy skin that you have. You should be seen in person by a board-certified plastic surgeon to confirm that this would be the best option for you.
All the best,
Thank you for your question and the photo. You are a great candidate for a full Tummy Tuck and lipo in areas where needed. Best of luck
Based on these photographs you appear to be an excellent candidate for a full tummy tuck with muscle reconstruction. This will flatten the muscles, reconstruct your core muscular corset, revise the belly button, eliminate the stretch marks from the belly button to the pubic hairline, and remove the loose skin and fat of the anterior abdomen.
Thank you for your question. You seem to be a better candidate for SculpSure because it is less invasive and targets the belly and thigh area specifically. The procedure can melt up to 25% of your subcutaneous fat in those hard-to-lose areas in a comfortable in-office 25-minute treatment. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
I would not recommend liposuculpture based on your photos. A mini
abdominoplasty would not give you a significant improvement in your
abdominal wall since it would only remove half of the fat and skin below
your umbilicus. Full abdominoplasty with liposuction of the flanks and
this fat transfered to the buttocks would give you the best results.
Smart lipo should not be used in liposuction of fat that is to be
transferred since the fat would be destroyed by the laser lipo. Four
days of recovery would not be sufficient time for recovery. Your
recovery should be two weeks and after that no exercise or lifting for
six weeks. You should avoid core exercise for 3 months following an
abdominoplasty. That means no sit ups or weight lifting more than 10
pounds. All of our abdominoplastys are done in our 23 hour stay,
Medicare certified surgery center under general anesthesia. Most
patients are discharged within two hours after their surgery. In our
practice we do not use drains in most cases and in all cases we use a
time released local anesthetic which last for three days. You should
have a consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for this or any
other cosmetic procedure that you may be considering.
Hello dear, thanks for your post and provided information as well. The combination of a liposuction with the a traditional tummy tuck has become a very common procedure. It is safe to combine the two procedures mainly to address the hip and flank areas. This is a very effective way to extenuate the contour of the waist along with the abdominoplasty. It is also important to realize that there is usually a limit on how much fat can be remove in a combined procedure.In general you may be a good tummy tuck candidate if:You are physically healthy and at a stable weight You have realistic expectations You are a non-smoker You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen. Also The fat transfer, often called Brazilian butt lift has become extremely popular because it allows your plastic surgeon to transform your entire shape. You improve your waist, hips and of course your buttock.
Good tummy tuck candidate if:
You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
You have realistic expectations
You are a non-smoker
You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
I also recommend to visit a board certified plastic surgeon for a person evaluation and to talk about your goals.
Good luck :)
