Our expert says:
The importance of weight loss, but more importantly weight maintenance, before AND after any cosmetic surgery procedure, is to reap the real benefits of the surgery. If you have breast reduction or breast lift surgery and then start losing weight, you will be confronted with sagging breasts, because of the loss of fatty tissue in the breast - the benefits of the surgery will be totally lost. The same will of course apply if you pick up weight again.
Certainly patients who are fit, healthy and who exercise regularly, and close to their ideal weight, and who are emotianally stable, are more likely to sail through surgery than other patients.
Successful cosmetic surgery results for the patient does not only require a skillful plastic surgeon, but also an ideal candidate.
