I am diabetic with an hA1C of 6.7% and BMI of 38-39, will a surgeon be comfortable with doing a tummy tuck? Already had one consultation however this person stated that I would need to come off of my diabetic medications and have to be under a hA1C of 6% which is is confusing since a pre diabetic is not a dielectric until after about 6.4-6.5%.
Higher BMI, Diabetes Can I Have a Tummy Tuck?
Answer: Potential candidate for tummy tuck
With your HgA1C, it is not ideal but it is not bad either. Different surgeons have different requirements and thresholds. Some surgeons may be okay with that number if your primary care physician has cleared you medically and that you understand that you may be at higher risk for complications, especially with a high BMI. In your case, lowering your BMI to lower level coupled with the same HgA1C may be completely acceptable.
