Depending on your expectation, yes - Would I be an good candidate for abdominal liposuction? (photos)
Without doing a physical exam, I would say that liposuction is a good option for you. If you want to look better in your clothes and the stretch marks don't bother you. In my experience, darker skin retracts nicely after liposuction, especially with the Tickle Liposuction because it stimulates from underneath. You may have some loose skin after all has healed. How much does that bother you?However, there are limitations to liposuction. If you wish to wear a bikini, tighten up your abdominal walls that have separated post pregnancy and minimize your stretchmarks, and have no loose skin, then a tummy tuck is the option.Tummy tuck surgery is more expensive and more downtime. If you do not want to go that route, I believe you will do very well with liposuction.Determine what you expect for results and share that with a Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.Good luck!
Liposuction immoderate candidate.
Which procedure you choose depends on what your goals are. To achieve a flat abdomen you will require a tummy tuck. If the resultant scar is not something you wish to have to deal with, liposuction will result in a thinning of what you pinch when you pinch your abdomen and improve the way jeans and tops appear from behind. If you are not satisfied with the results of a liposuction you can always consider a tummy tuck as a secondary procedure. You should see a plastic surgeon who can give you realistic expectations after examine you. Good luck. I

Are you a good Liposuction candidate?
Liposuction of abdomen
If you want a flat tummy, you may be better off with a tummy tuck. Liposuction will improve your contour but you will most likely have some residual loose skin. It will help you look better in clothes / allow you to look better when you tuck your shirt in. If your goal is to wear a bikini, a tummy tuck will probably give you a more predictable result. The belly button piercing and ornament will help to cover / distract attention from the belly button scar that will result from a tummy tuck. You will need a face-to-face consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your specific goals and select the ideal procedure to achieve those goals.
