We created this resource page to help both our prospective and existing patients navigate through the large volume of information that is provided during the life-changing journey of undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Your BMI (Body Mass Index) will affect how well you respond to Body Plastic Surgery. All patients should keep in mind that Body Plastic Surgery is not intended as a weight loss procedure. For some procedures such as a tummy tuck, the recommended BMI is less than 30. For a Brazilian butt lift, your BMI should be greater than 20 so you have enough fat. People with a higher BMI may have more complications with surgery and recovery. Your doctor will help you understand the requirements for your procedure.
