LASIK After Tummy Tuck Surgery?

I am one-week post op from abdominoplasty and liposuction of the thighs, knees and flanks. I want to take advantage of the time off to do LASIK as well. Are there any potential complications to having LASIK done following major surgery? Would 3+ weeks post op be enough time between these procedures? Thanks!

This shouldn't be a problem. LASIK is usually performed without the need for general anesthesia so as long as your ophthalmologist is aware and ready, then maximize your time off.
