Am I candidate for endoscopic tummy tuck? (Photo)

Significantly below the standard of care
This is a terrible technical outcome. Poorly executed. The belly button is much too small in diameter. The muscle plication is inadequate. I have no idea what the scar pattern is or where this surgeon was trained. This is significantly below the standard of care for a properly trained plastic surgeon.
A Difficult DIscussion
Not everyone is a candidate for tummy tuck surgery or any surgery for that matter. The reasons vary from technical to the practical: the question is whether or not you can achieve results with which you will be happy with surgery. Don't rush into surgery...Have a discussion as to what you would like with your surgeon. Hope that he or she is honest enough to give you real answers.
Take into account that to tell a potential paying client not to pay you takes a particular type of individual.

No reason I can see...
for an endoscopic TT....your abdominal wall and scar pattern/location need revision and thus an open approach is best....it appears that your umbilicus has been removed....there aren't anything terrific options to restore your belly button but I bet you can improve your results significantly in the right hands...
