What is BMI or Body Mass Index? Learn its Importance

To be considered a suitable candidate for plastic surgery, it is essential to have a BMI within the parameters recommended by the doctor.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a crucial measure used to assess body composition and determine whether an individual falls within a healthy weight range, is overweight, or underweight. It is calculated by relating an individual’s height and current weight.

To be considered a suitable candidate for plastic surgery, it is essential to have a BMI within the parameters recommended by the doctor. At My Cosmetic Surgery, the maximum BMI allowed for patients interested in procedures such as mommy makeover, abdominoplasty, liposculpture, breast augmentation, or liposuction is 35. However, the doctor will evaluate each case during pre-procedure consultations.

It is important to note that undergoing surgery is not advised if the BMI limit is exceeded, as it can significantly increase the risk of serious complications such as cardiorespiratory arrest or pulmonary embolism due to the procedure’s extended duration and the need for higher anesthesia doses.

If you find yourself above the recommended BMI values, our specialists at My Cosmetic Surgery will provide guidance on adjusting your dietary habits and daily routines to improve your health and well-being.

Maintaining a healthy BMI involves adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious and energizing diet, as well as regular physical exercise to prevent sedentary behavior.

At My Cosmetic Surgery, our team of specialists is committed to providing the best care and guidance to our patients. If you have a high BMI or other issues that could affect your surgery, we will provide detailed and personalized information from the outset to address your case comprehensively.
