Do I need skin removal from my abdomen to look my best?
Tummy tuck - removal of excess skin
From what I can see on your photos, you are a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery also known as Abdominoplasty. Research a board certified plastic surgeon and request a consultation. An in person consult is extremely helpful in reviewing your body details for your safest and best result. Best Wishes!!

Candidate to get rid of extra skin
Judging by your photos you would likely benefit from having a Tummy Tuck along with some liposuction. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
Candidate to have extra skin removed?
Following the advice of anyone who would presume to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without taking a full medical history (your thyroid level needs to be stabilized), examining you, feeling and assessing your tissue tone, discussing your desired outcome and fully informing you about the pros and cons of each option would not be in your best interest. Find a plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and one that you trust and listen to his or her advice. The surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
