Since Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee both want you to successfully get through the surgery as safely as possible, we have adopted some guidelines in our practice, based on the published research. Additionally, pre-op weight loss may allow for more skin removal at the time of surgery, giving you a better cosmetic result as well! If your BMI is above 30, we suggest some pre-operative weight loss – which we can help you with – prior to performing any body contouring. The BMI chart is shown here.
