Do I really need a tummy tuck of will lipo suffice? (Photo)

I have had 2 children and been left with the "jelly belly" as a result. I have seen a surgeon to organise liposuction however he has informed me that a tummy tuck is the best way forward due to the separation in my abs from the pregnancies. Can I ask for additional opinions as to whether the tummy tuck is necessary as I am very nervous about the risks and the scarring. Thank you!

Bulging of the abdomen

There's really only one way to correct bulging of the abdomen from pregnancy, and that's with a tummy tuck. Physical therapy and lipo would be equally ineffective for this.That's because the muscles are separated and just won't be able to come back together without a corset repair.Hard to tell from just a side profile view, but I would investigate a tummy tuck with yet another surgeon and get a better sense of your options.
