Thank you for your question. You should see your regular primary care physician and figure out why you are so anemic before undergoing elective cosmetic plastic surgery.  You may have a serious medical cause of anemia.

Before having tummy tuck and liposuction, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.  I hope this helps.
