Plus Size Plastic Surgery
It is Doable!
Although there is nothing wrong with plus size plastic surgery to improve one’s appearance and boost her confidence, some aspects must be considered. In this regard, we’ll explore whether plus size cosmetic surgery is a viable option for you.
What is a Plus Size Body?
Otherwise referred to as full-figured bodies, full-sized women are often regarded as ladies with a body size of 12 and above.
Having a plus size body is becoming more acceptable these days, as women are more confident with their bodies. Flaunting their voluptuousness also empowers others to accept their unique body sizes.
Is a Plus Size Body Healthy?
For a long time, having a large frame is regarded as a sign of disease and obesity.
But this can’t be farther from the truth. Despite weighing heavier than others, your numbers are not indicative of your health status.
If you check the BMI of plus-sized people, the results will show an overweight or obese status. However, your BMI is not a diagnostic tool for your condition.
After all, a high BMI can be influenced by muscle mass, height, and even hereditary factors.

How Is Plus Size Plastic Surgery Doable?
In the past, plastic surgeons were strict when it came to your weight before going under the knife. Many of them had a BMI limit of 30 or 35 before they performed a certain procedure.
But for double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Masri, a high BMI number doesn’t mirror a person’s health status. It is not his sole basis in determining your fitness for surgery.
That is why he accepts patients with a BMI of up to 45, as long as they’re in a good overall health status. He ensures their safety by performing all his procedures in accredited hospitals with access to state-of-the-art equipment.
For your surgery to be successful, consult with Dr. Masri as he specializes in plus size cosmetic surgery. You may evaluate his plus size plastic surgery before and after photos to see how he has changed the lives of patients with high BMI through cosmetic surgery.
I do not use BMI as a sole criterion in determining one's candidacy for plus size plastic surgery.
As all patients have individualized goals and surgical nuances, a high BMI should not prevent them from achieving their plastic surgery goals.
