5'9 and 270lbs: You need to lose weight

+1

Hi. Thank you for your question. With a weight of 270lbs and a height of 5'9, your current BMI (Body Mass Index) is 39.87. That is a morbid obesity state. Specifically a obesity class 2 (almost class 3, which starts at 40, and is the top level).

You need special care of your weight. Please visit a nutrition specialist, or if diet is not enough for you, consider bariatric surgery first as a long term solution. You will always have time for a aesthetic plastic procedure at the end.

Good luck

Weight loss First

I think in your case weight loss is critical.  You should choose a BC PS and develop a plan for your weight loss prior to your body contouring surgery.

      I think that you will get a better result if you lose weight first.  I think that if you lose about 70 lbs or so you will have fewer complications as well.
