Always tell your surgeon and anesthesiologist about any medications you are taking and ask about dieting advice prior to surgery.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided infromation as well.. I will recommend you to lose some more weight as you want it too, it is a good decision though.. But I will request for you to consult everything with your board certified plastic surgeon, at the same time with your primary doctor, it is safer to eat healthy and go to the gym for me.

BBL

Diet pills are contraindicated prior to elective surgery.  These increase your risk for life threatening complications during surgery.
