Best Rx: Southern Plastic Surgery

Dr. David Whiteman from Southern Plastic Surgery answers a reader’s question about pre-surgery weight.

Dr. David Whiteman, Southern Plastic SurgeryQ: Do I have to be a certain weight before I can have liposuction or a tummy tuck?

A: I remind my patients that plastic surgery should not be a “quick fix,” but rather should help them reach aesthetic goals, as liposuction and a tummy tuck only enhance the body’s contours. Prior to cosmetic surgery, it’s important to be near your weight goals and to maintain realistic expectations. To prolong long-lasting results after surgery, patients must adopt a healthy diet and exercise routine.
