Several goals: The primary goals of a tummy tuck are the following: 1) correction of separated abdominal muscles by suturing them together to flatten the abdomen. 2) removing loose stretched skin. 3) +/- liposuction of the flanks for waist definition. 4) removal of lower abdominal stretch marks.

Surgically.: For flat abdomen eat healthfully ; be physically active. Calories burned must > calories consumed. To tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge ; “bicycling” exercise on your back. Engage in regular aerobic exercise (i.e., running, swimming, nordic track, bicycling, kickboxing, walking, cross country skiing, hiking, etc.).

No really good: Treatment for loose skin, except surgical excision. You are still young, so wait and see if skin will regain elasticity.
