You might want to do yourself a favor and meet with Dr Capella in NJ for a consult. He told me that patients should be within normal BMI range either on surgey day or postop LBL. He can tell you how much he can remove and if you are ready.
He did a LBL on me 9 days ago, and I lost 11 lbs already. He did lipo waist to knees, and I am smooth and firm. I think he is the best, and actually met a patient from Providence. He is in North Jersey, so you have to travel through CT. I'm in Jersey and travel 90+ min, and its worth every one of them. He will be honest if you need thigh lift or not, and its poss your PS is avoiding having to go TL. Does she even do them? JG
