Since Dr. Fiala wants 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 28-30, we may suggest some pre-operative weight loss – which we can help you with – prior to performing any body contouring. The BMI chart is shown here.
