Am I a candidate for surgery
YOur food allergies will not interfere with surgical procedures, as long as you adhere to your diet and medications. If you take steroids for your RA, this may prolong but will not inhibit wound healing. Your body can be improved considerably with a breast lift + implants, and a liposuction assisted tummy tuck with muscle tightening and panniculectomy(escise the apron), This will also improve groin hygiene.. You should discuss these procedures not only with your Plastic Surgeon, but with your internist/cardiologist or family doctor, to make sure you are in good health shape for these long procedures. It is also imperative that you are not a smoker. Good luck!

Thank you for your email. 1. You need to organise a detailed consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon with special interest in body contouring. He will assess you for the suitability of your requested surgery. Once he is happy then he will send you for preanaesthetic assessment to deal with the issues you have raised. In general, food allergy does not contraindicate breast operation. I donot think that breast augmentation is a suitable operation as you possibly would need breast lift with or without breast implants. It would be a good idea to consider optimising your body mass index before any cosmetic surgery.
With best wishes,
All of what you're describing is possible. You likely just need a little medical clearance beforehand. Based on your body proportions, you may also want to get your cortisol checked and other hormones also. Getting an in-office consult would be necessary to determine your BMI and goals, measurements, etc.
Tummy tuck and breast augmentation?
- I understand your concern.
- Your photo suggests that a breast lift with an implant plus an extended tummy tuck with flank liposuction might be an excellent operation for you.
- You appear to have considerable internal fat - have your surgeon explain what is a realistic expectation.
- It will help you to know your BMI - you can find it on-line by search 'calculate BMI' and entering your height and weight.
- If your BMI is under 30, you should have a good result
