First of all, great job on staying active. Thank you for your question and pictures. It is important to get a full assessment to determine if it will be safe for you to go under surgery since everyone is different. I will advice you to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss possible treatment and go over your medical history.

All the best,

I appreciate your question.

For health and safety reasons, best to be at a 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!
