Liposuction or tummy tuck?
When you meet with an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon discuss the options and I wish you the best of luck. I think you are likely to be very satisfied with the improvement you obtained from liposuction alone.

Liposuction alone is what most patients need.

Tummy Tuck or Liposuction
The decision of which procedure to have depends on what you're trying to achieve, how much surgery you're willing to undergo and if you're willing to except a long scar and a somewhat on the natural appearing bellybutton(regardless of talent. The bellybutton never looks truly natural after an abdominoplasty).
Liposuction removes unwanted subcutaneous fat only.
An abdominoplasty treats loose skin and muscle separation from previous pregnancies.
Based on your pictures your skin looks good. You may have some muscle separation from your pregnancy but your abdominal wall overall it looks good.
My guess is you're a candidate for having a spectacular body transformation from liposuction if it's done well.
The results from liposuction very greatly.
Liposuction can give great detail, emphasize assets, hide deficits, and help bring out the most ideal proportions and body contours.
Liposuction is sometimes misunderstood for being able to deliver results for everyone.
Many people are not good candidates for liposuction.
This may be part what has kept liposuction from attaining the reputation it deserves.
Liposuction is not given enough creedance as sophisticated procedure that can deliver dramatic results.
My practice is devoted exclusively to body contouring using various forms of liposuction and fence transferred.
If you are done having children, want an abdomen that is tight, don't mind a long scar and slightly different looking bellybutton, have the financial resources and can tolerate a brutal recovery then and abdominoplasty maybe your procedure.
If you're OK having some abdominal distention(slightly ful stomach), less than perfect skin(about the same as you have now), drastically improved contour giving much better definition, a procedure that could be done awake with relatively fast recovery then liposuction may be the right procedure for you.
My practice is devoted entirely to body contouring using various forms of liposuction and fat transfer.
I have performed hundreds of abdominoplasty surgeries in the past but currently focus exclusively on Liposuction and fat transfer.
I suggest consulting with multiple board-certified plastic surgeon's who have experience, expertise an excellent online reviews.
When reviewing plastic surgeons I suggest looking for reviews on multiple websites.
Be weary of anyone who has disproportionate number of reviews on any one single website like real self.

Weight loss vs liposuction vs tummy tuck
While liposuction can removed fat in the subcutaneous space, it cannot remove fat inside the abdomen, and it cannot tighten the fascia, which does appear to be loose on the side view.
A responsible board certified plastic surgeon can guide you to the right decision.
Tummy tuck or liposuction?
- You appear to have widely stretched muscles but little loose skin.
- You need an examination to know the right thing to do.
- It may be that muscle repair plus 360 liposuction will be a good combination.
