Why do I need to be at my goal weight before plastic surgery? I don’t feel with my frame that I would look good less than my goal weight. If I have 20 pounds of skin and fat removed, I know it would not suit me. I have lost over 100 pounds and would be looking at a tt, arm lift, leg lift butt lift and plenty of lipo.
