Should I Lose Weight Hefore Getting Bbl and Liposuction?
It is ALWAYS best to be at a consistent stable nonobese weight BEFORE body contouring operations.At 5'3 170lbs you have a BMI of 30 making you "Obese". If you could drop your weight by eating properly (no binging/starvation, cut out carbs, fats etc) to 140-145 pounds and were able to keep it there you would have a much nicer result.
with a history of 3 fullterm pregnancies you should seriously consider a Tummy Tuck for superior contouring of the front with a combination of buttock enhancement as you may want as a secondary procedure.
