I have heard that you have to lose some weight in your waistline before a surgeon operates. Is that true?

    This depends on your particular needs and procedures. I would consult with a plastic surgeon and be evaluated, discuss your weight goals if you have them, if your weight tends to fluctuate, etc…
    Good luck.

    It depends on what you want done. If it is a tummy tuck, your BMI should be below 30, if it is above some weight loss should be in order.
