Liposuction of my flanks?
- Your photos suggest that you have one one or more children with loose skin and loose muscles.
- If you are planning a tummy tuck, a little liposuction can be done at the sides if needed.
- It isn't clear from the photo if it does need to be done -
- An examination will give you the answer to your question.
If you are just planning liposuction, I am concerned you will end up with loose skin and not a lot of improvement.
- Be sure you are seeing a qualified plastic surgeon and understand the right procedure to get the best result.
- Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
You are not a good candidate for liposuction alone on your belly. You would benefit from a tummy tuck. The type of liposuction doesn't matter. Really. What matters is your surgeon's training, experience, and skill. Go visit a few ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons.
Best of luck!

Where to liposuction or liposculpt?
Thanks for your question and photos. You certainly could benefit from liposuction but you have loose skin above your belly button. Liposuction helps to decrease fat and tightens the skin some but not back to normal. You may need a tummy tuck as when you sit you have extra skin. I recommend getting an in person consultation for a better assessment with a board certified plastic surgeon that performs liposuction. Liposuctioning your upper and lower abdomen and flanks could give an overall better shape. Good Luck!
All the best,
