BMI for BBL
Thank you for your question. I recommend that my patients have a BMI of 30 or less to have the best and safest results. Your BMI is around 35 so I would recommend getting it down to at least 30. It is important to remember to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle through diet and exercise, even after surgery for best results and to reduce your chance of health related issues. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your endeavors!

Ideal weight for BBL
This is a common question.
The ideal body weight for BBL would be less than 30 BMI. Your current BMI is 35.4 and you would need to get your weight down to 190 pounds with your height at 5'7".
I wish you well through your surgery and recovery process,
