Hello I'm sorry you are experiencing such a hard time loosing the requirement weight to perform procedure with your surgeon however there is some surgeons and facilities designed to operate patients with a BMI limit up to 40 the cup size will depend really will not be able to be fully determined till the actual procedure is being performed but you can get down to a full DD or D Best of luck.
