Liposuction skin tightening
Liposuction removes fat but doesn’t tighten the skin. The more liposuction that is necessary to achieve the desired result, the less likely the skin will retract to be smooth and tight.
For example, the more air that comes out of a balloon, the more wrinkled the balloon envelope. The age of the patient and history of a significant weight gain and weight loss are important factors contributing to skin inelasticity.
A history and physical examination is required to understand your goals and expectations as well as to evaluate the excess fat and skin quality.
For patients who are actively working to lose weight, I encourage them to continue with a healthy diet plan and exercise.
Thereafter, an examination with your surgeon will be much more valid with regard to the treatment plan. As always, seek out a board certified plasticsurgeon with experience in your local area for consultation.
If you plan on having children in the future, Tummytuck will be a waste. Why not get the liposuction and then adopt a solid diet and workout routine to sculpt your abdomen? That way you have more options later, if you have kids. If a family is not in your plans, then Tummytuck the way to go.
Although it is hard to give sage advice without a physical exam and consultation, based on your pictures, my answer is that what you need completely depends on your goals. If you are just looking to remove excess adipose tissue from the area, then liposuction may work for you, but it may make your skin problem worse.
Removing fat from the area may result in skin that may not retract, leaving you with excess skin that you are not happy with. If you are looking to re-contour your abdomen as a whole and get rid of loose skin, then your best results would certainly come from a tummy tuck.
If you plan on losing weight, then you would be better off to lose weight prior to surgery as this would allow removal of the most amount of skin and give you the best result possible. Get a consultation with a local plastic surgeon and let them examine you. Once they have, they will be able to have a discussion with you regarding your goals and provide you with options available to you
At age 23 you would probably get significant improvement with liposuction. How much your skin will tighten depends on many factors that are only to be addressed during in-person consultation.
You may want to save a TT for after you have had children if you are planning children. I suggest to wait until you get to you ideal weight, being stable on a weight will tell us what you really need as surgical procedure.
You would get a very nice result with VASER liposuction of your abdomen, bra rolls, waist, hips and back. I expect your skin to tighten up nicely, but in the worst case, if you still have some loose skin at 6 months, this can be removed through a low suprapubic incision.
Since you want a tight sculpted abdomen a tummy tuck may be your best option. If your looking for six-pack-tighteness a mini-abdominoplasty may be a better choice.
I recommend you a Tummy Tuck, to get a flat abdomen and waist and back Liposculpture, getting better curves especially in the waist, improving your body contour.Finally, I suggested take the fat we get and transfer to the buttocks and hips, to mold them and get better volume, contour and butt projection, is that we know as “Brazilian Butt Lift” (BBL).

An in-person examination with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is your best option. This procedure involves skin tightening the abdominal muscles to create a more toned looking abdomen.
Before tummy tuck, it is a good idea to reach a your ideal weight and make sure your weight is stable. It seems like you might also be a candidate for liposuction. These two procedures in combination can also provide great results. Hope this helps,Dr. ResultsMiami, FL (Jose M. Soler-Baillo, MD, Miami Plastic Surgeon)
Bbl with liposuction only vs tummy tuck for skin tightening
It’s very difficult to answer your question with only the provided photo. If your skin is not too loose ( which may be the case in that you have not had a child) liposuction alone in combination with a bbl would be the most ideal approach.
A consultation allowing assessment of the quality of your abdominal skin tone and a review of your specific expectations and scar tolerance would be required. (David A. Bottger, MD, Philadelphia Plastic Surgeon)
