5'9 and 270lbs: You need to lose weight
Hi. Thank you for your question. With a weight of 270lbs and a height of 5'9, your current BMI (Body Mass Index) is 39.87. That is a morbid obesity state. Specifically a obesity class 2 (almost class 3, which starts at 40, and is the top level).
You need special care of your weight. Please visit a nutrition specialist, or if diet is not enough for you, consider bariatric surgery first as a long term solution. You will always have time for a aesthetic plastic procedure at the end.
I think in your case weight loss is critical. You should choose a BC PS and develop a plan for your weight loss prior to your body contouring surgery.

At 270 pounds and 5'9" you are very overweigth. You need to lose weight and then be evaluated for the BBL. You may need a nutritionist to hepl you lose weight. After weight loss you should consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with extensive experience in performing the BBL.Good luck!
I Am 27 Year Old 270 Pounds 5'9 I Want to Know Should I Lose Weight Before Getting Bbl and Fat Grafting Done?
I think that you will get a better result if you lose weight first. I think that if you lose about 70 lbs or so you will have fewer complications as well.
