Am I A Candidate for Plastic Surgery?

Although plastic surgery offers a lot of possibilities, it’s important to realize that not all people are ideal candidates for these procedures. As a leading plastic surgery practice, we uphold strict standards to ensure the safety of our patients. Plastic Surgery Consultants welcomes patients from Columbia, Lexington and the surrounding areas of South Carolina.

Do You Live a Healthy Lifestyle?

Individuals who smoke may not be good candidates for surgery as smoking can interfere with the body’s ability to heal. For some patients, abstaining from smoking prior to and following surgery may be an acceptable solution.  Maintaining a healthy weight is also important for plastic surgery patients. At Plastic Surgery Consultants, we request that patients have a  BMI (body mass index) of less than 40 before considering surgery. Please use the BMI calculator below to see if you are a healthy weight for plastic surgery. If you have questions, please call us for further explanation. .
