Tummy Tuck - I recently had a baby (2 months) and although I do not have excess skin, I do have stretch marks on the front and sides. Am I a good candidate for lipo of the abdomen? Or is a Tummy tuck the better option? I’m not particularly worried about stretch marks.

The only way to get rid of stretch marks is by removing them with a tummy tuck. But that's a long incision and if you're not worried about the stretch marks, then liposuction may be a good option as long as you mostly have excess fat. If you have a lot of excess skin, liposuction may not get rid of that excess skin. An in person consultation with your doctor will help you make that decision.
