Weight loss and the timing of surgery
Overall body shape and fat distribution is by far more important.
Some people are good candidates for this procedure and should expect excellent results if the procedure is done well.
Other people are simply not good candidates and I'm not going to get great results no matter how well the procedure is performed.
The ability for the surgeon to differentiate and convey expected results in an honest manner is critical in keeping overall hi long-term patient satisfaction.
In other words you need to know if you're a good candidate and what type of results you can expect either as is or with weight loss.
This could be done through a virtual consultation but will be much more accurate with an in person consultation.
I generally always steer people away from traveling for surgery unless there is an compelling reason.
Without at least seeing pictures no one will be able to give you an accurate answer. It's a very general statement I believe patients should be at their ideal BMI before considering cosmetic surgery.

When is Weight Loss Prior to a BBL Recommended?
I perform virtual consults frequently and have many "out-of-town" patients. While I think the virtual consult is great; it has limits. I think a major limitation is on the quality and distribution of the available fat. I agree with you completely, I would want to see you in person prior to making a final recommendation on whether you should gain or lose weight. Why? Because everyone holds their weight differently. I would recommend visiting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with Formal Training in Cosmetic Surgery and Specializing in Butt Augmentation to determine a plan that: 1) Gives you the best recommendation 2)Meets Your Goals 3)Meets Your Timeline.
