You should address the medication issues with your surgeon and anesthesiologist as I think that most will want you to be off of the phentermine.

Bbl and phenterimine

hi great question. Phenterimine can have adverse effects on your cardiovascular system and how you respond to anesthesia. I recommend stopping usage 2-4 weeks before your surgery for safety. Looking at your photos, a weight loss of 10-20 pounds would be helpful for your overall result but is not required. Best of luck!
