Crowns Disease and a tummy tuck

I have performed abdominoplasty surgeries on patients who have the disease. However they did not have active flare ups, they were cleared by their gastroenterologist, and they were not currently on remicade or other immunosuppressive agents.

i suggest that you have a coordinated discussion with your surgeon and your GI doctor.
