Serious medical problems and cosmetic surgery

There is no yes or no answer to your question. Your plastic surgeon should discuss this with your primary care physician who can make an overall assessment as to your health and appropriateness of elective cosmetic surgery. You may benefit by losing some weight before seeking cosmetic surgery. Weight-loss will help with your blood pressure, sleep apnea,  an overall sense of well-being and life longevity.
