Do I need a Tummy tuck?
This is a perfect example of why it is such a good idea to have a face-to-face consult with an experienced Plastic Surgeon.
In short, I suggest, from your enquiry, that you would benefit from tummy tuck surgery.
But what kind, and exactly what is required?
Surgery needs to be tailored to each person's body and needs. In your case, you have a large abdominal area, and you have also lost weight. So, you may need just a tummy-tuck along the 'standard' lines of surgery, or possibly one that extends extra along the line to take up additional sagging from the weight loss. Also, will belly-button repositioning be necessary? These are just some of the questions that I need to look at when making an assessment on my patient. Then, after we've met, talked, measured and fully assessed, I can offer you options that are appropriate for you.
So, my suggestion to you is organise yourself a consult with a Plastic surgeon. Then you will know what's recommended specifically for you.
