I am a 41 yr old female and I weigh about 285 lbs. My height is 5 ft 9 in. How much weight must I lose to have a Body lift?
A: body weight for a body lift
You should be close to your ideal weight prior to having a body lift or any body contouring procedure. Once you have been at a stable weight, for about one year, then you would be a good candidate for a body lift procedure. There is no specific number that you should be, but you should be at a weight that you are comfortable with and that you feel you can maintain. The surgery itself only removes a few pounds (mostly skin) and should not be thought of as a weight reduction procedure.
Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling a body lift procedure.
