I am 6'3 and 253.532 pounds - am I too heavy for fat transfer to buttocks + breast implants?

I recently lost a large amount of weight; from 160kg to 95kg - I am now 115kg - are there any surgeons who would work on a patient like me? Does my height make my bmi okay to operate on? Thanks

I appreciate your question. From the information you provided above, your BMI is 31.6.  For health and safety reasons, best to be at at 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!
