Ask your physician: Especially with the advances in bariatric surgery, ask whether you are a candidate.

Surgery Options: Speaking with a board certified plastic surgeon is the best way to determine your actual options (and pricing). That said, at 5'5" and 260 pounds, it is likely you will be asked to lose weight prior to having any elective surgery procedure. Look into gastric bypass or other weight loss options first.
