What type of surgery do you want to have done.  This question was in the tummy tuck category.  Each patient is evaluated for excess skin and fat that could be removed.  I hope this helps.

A:

Ideal weight for cosmetic surgery is defined by a calculation we call BMI. It stands for Body Mass Index. An ideal BMI would be in the mid 20's. Complication rates increase once the BMI is 30 and are extremely high when the BMI is 35 or greater. you can find a BMI calculator on the internet the number is derived form your height and weight. You board certified plastic surgeon can discuss this further with you at your consultation. good luck
