Surgery following Weight Loss
A combination of post-weight loss body contouring procedures may offer optimal results.
A tummy tuck can eliminate excess abdominal skin and can be combined with liposuction to improve the appearance of your love handles and lower back. Based on your photos, you may be a candidate for a lower body lift, which includes a buttocks and outer thigh lift with a tummy tuck to remove loose skin through the lower body as well. You have the right idea to reach a healthy, stable weight prior to pursuing plastic surgery. The cost of these procedures varies due to the plastic surgeon that you choose and the amount of time it takes for him or her to complete the procedure. Best of luck to you!
Find the right surgeon
Far more important than deciding if liposuction or a BBL is for you is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let him explain why one technique may be better than another and if you need a tummy tuck. Many board certified plastic surgeons provide a free first time consult and you should take advantage of that! See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for you!

After weight loss
Congrats on your weight loss! Keep it up and get within 10-15 pounds of your target weight. Then a consult with a plastic surgeon can determine weather a tummy tuck with liposuction of the hips or possibly a "belt lipectomy" would be the best option. I think you will see a great improvement!

Thank you for the query. Good to see you being so committed about losing weight. You should probably continue with you weight loss programs to get somewhere near to your expected weight. Then possibly you could plan your surgeries. From you pictures it appears that you would do well with a full abdominoplasty, liposuction and possibly combined with a circumferential belt lipectomy. You may also need additional procedures. However you need a full clinical examination to plan our your surgeries.Best wishes,Dr Alexander+
