How much should a patient weigh before getting liposuction?
Without photos- and knowing your medical history it is difficult to comment accurately. Generally speaking, it is always best to achieve your ideal weight first before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. Keep in mind -- liposuction only addresses excess fat-- not excess skin. If your BMI is high-- you are not a good candidate for liposuction. Best to seek in person consultation with an experienced BC PS.
Weight loss is not necessary prior to liposuction.
Patients with a high BMI would not be considered ideal candidate for liposuction but can get very pleasing results. It all depends on the expectations of the patient.
No height stated to the weight! So best to lose atleast 40 pounds than decide if Lipo vs TT???
Weight before liposuction is not set
There is no set weight that is appropriate for you to be well prepared for liposuction. It will depend on the fat distribution and whether the surgeon feels an area can be well treated. You could theoretically have liposuction right now, but would need to be examined to be sure.
