- Your photos suggest that you will get a good result from liposuction alone.
- But have your plastic surgeon examine you carefully - if the skin is very loose, you may need some skin removed as well.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?
I think you would get an excellent result from liposuction to the abdomen and flanks. Liposuction targets pockets of exercise-resistant fat, which is exactly what you describe. You are a great candidate. If you are surgical or anesthesia adverse, CoolSculpting would be an option, however it is not as aggressive and may require 2 treatments.
I recommend that you meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss your options.

Consult with a few plastic surgeons in person to be sure. Watch this brief video for more information.
CoolSculpting for men
Nonsurgical options including CoolSculpting are a great alternative for male patients who want to remove stubborn lower abdominal fat without scars or downtime. It may require more than one cycle, but is something to consider.

That being said, you appear, at least from your pictures, to be an excellent candidate for liposuction alone. Although you lost 30 kilos during your teens, it appears you do not have any loss of elasticity. You are young, male and hairy. These all bode well for greater elasticity and thicker skin which should respond very well to liposuction alone, both of your hips (lumbar rolls) and abdomen.
California is chuck full of excellent Board Certified plastic surgeons. I recommend you consult with three and pick the one most experienced and who you interact best with.
