For health and safety reasons, best to be at a BMI less than 30 or within 10 pounds of your goal weight and stable at that weight for 6 months prior to surgery for optimal results.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

That said there is a point at which obesity overrides potential improvements from either liposuction o fat transfer procedures. At 300 pounds you should most probably try to get closer to your ideal weight before pursuing any cosmetic operation.

Thank you for your question. Everyone carries their weight differently. My recommendation to our patient to have a BMI of 35 or less. I would recommend you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for them to evaluate your fat distribution. After an exam they should be able to tell you if you need to lose weight. Good luck.
