To most accurately answer your question, I would need to see some pictures of your abdomen. By description, however, it does sound like a tummy tuck is needed since you have mentioned a skin roll as well as fat. What type of tummy tuck is best for you is impossible to determine without a photographic assessment. As a general statement, the vast majority of tummy tuck candidates get the best result (flattest stomachs) from fuller or more complete types of tummy tuck surgery.

Hello Vaishali,
 
Loose skin, especially from weight loss or from having kids, can only be corrected with a tummy tuck.  Which tummy tuck would be best for you will depend on the amount of loose skin and your goals.  An in person consultation will be helpful to make more specific recommendations but rest assure that there is a tummy tuck option for you.
