Although skin tightening can produce nice results, it has limits. I think that in cases of lots of extra skin it would be wasted money. You would likely still prefer the appearance after a tummy tuck. You should expect amazing tummy tuck results as you have only extra skin. So long as you get a low scar that can not be seen in a bikini and your surgeon knows how to make a beautiful natural looking belly button, I would say you would be far ahead with a tummy tuck.

I suggest you see an expert you can get wrinkle improvement with skin tightening procedures and lasers/microneedling. This type typically needs skin removal but non invasive options can give some improvement. Best, Dr. Emer.
I think Thermi-RF would help you improve the quality of your skin significantly. Micro-needling and non-ablative fractional laser would also help reduce the stretch marks.
Thank you for your question. You would non-invasively best benefit from either Ulthera or Thermi. Additionally, microneedling and some laser therapy, like Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant/Genesis would add to the improvement you see from the heat based therapy. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
