I had smart look done in November and I have scar tissue and unevenness. Will a tummy tuck solve this problem? (Photos)

Vaser ultrasound liposuction can break through the scar tissue and fat while tightening the skin.
An exam and consultation with a plastic surgeon is recommended to discuss your options and expectations.

Liposuction is an excellent treatment for reducing unwanted fat and improving contour in patients with good skin tone.
However, liposuction alone does not generally tighten skin, whether or not a laser (eg. Smartlipo) is used (and despite what some may tell you).
Your photos suggest that you may be a candidate for revision liposuction with or without a tummy tuck. An in-person examination is needed to give you a definitive opinion.
Please see an experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation.

Based on your photos but without an examination, you appear to be a good candidate for a
full tummy tuck and liposuction of selective areas. It is difficult to tell whether in fact you
are a good candidate for those procedures without a physical examination and complete
medical history. It would depend on your anatomical findings, motivation, realistic
expectations, and whether you are finished having children.
If a member of my family underwent these procedures, they would be performed by an
experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic
Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. If you
are serious about undergoing these procedures, you should have a thorough consultation
with a plastic surgeon having those credentials, who will fully explain what is entailed in the
procedures, including both the positives and potential problems. You should be
complimented on the fact that you are seeking valid information before jumping into any
