Ideal Weight Prior to Surgery
Pregnancy and childbirth causes fat to be deposited in other unwanted areas, like your hips or thighs. It stretches the abdominal wall skin and muscle tone. And you can actually approach each of those areas and rejuvenate them and in some cases make them better than before pregnancy. Its always best to be at your ideal stable weight. Check in consultation with your plastic surgeon prior to scheduling, but this would be my recommendation.
you need to be as close to your ideal body weight before such procedures. The result will be better and if you lose substantial weight after the surgery, your skin may " loosen" again compromising the result.
Proper weight for surgery
It is best to be as close to your ideal body weight as possible before surgery to enhance your results and minimize complications. However, as long as you are still in a healthy weight range and your weight is stable, you can continue to proceed with surgery. It's a good idea to incorporate a healthy lifestyle including diet and exercise so that you can continue to enjoy your results for years to come.
The right weight
Obviously a more desirable weight is preferable and desirable for the patient and surgeon alike. However a stable weight is one of the most important things you can do prior to surgery. In other words losing weight prior to surgery then gaining back afterwards is counterproductive. If you are within about 20 pounds or less of your usual weight then it should not make that much difference.
It is always best to lose as much weight as you can before surgery. Also important is to have a healthy diet routine at that moment , this will help you a lot during post op. Best of luck
Weight loss before surgery
You should lose weight prior to having your surgery as you will have a better cosmetic outcome. You will also lower your risk of surgical complications with weight loss.

It is best to be at your goal / stable weight before having surgery. This will give you the best possible outcome. I suggest having a discussion with your surgeon regarding this. Best of luck!
For safety concerns it usually behooves the patient to be within 10 lbs of their ideal weight prior to elective body contouring surgery.

Thank you for your question. It is highly recomended to have a stable weight before surgery for at least 4 months, idealy your goal weight. This will help you achieve the best results and minimize risks during and after surgery. Combination procedures can give powerful results but SAFETY is KEY. You definitely have to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety.
