Blood Thinners and Mommy Makeover
Hi there, I want to have the mommy makeover but last year I had to have three stents put in due to a heart attack. Now I have to wait until one year is up to have the surgery because they don't want me to stop the plavix and aspirin that I take daily. I wanted to do this in dec. and my cardiologist wouldn't approve it for the plavix reasons. I understand what he is saying and my plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist are fine to go forward in hospital when I'm allowed. My question is how long will I need to be off of the blood thinners before and after the surgery? I'll get back on the darn stuff but I really want to do this. I see him in early April and I want to have my facts to talk to him. I'll gladly add pics once I get the go ahead to do this. I've seen before and afters, in surgery, etc. and I don't care I WANT IT DONE!!! I can't wait.
