Mirena Removal before Surgery
I do not require the removal of the Mirena for this surgery. The risk of pregnancy during your recovery period is higher than the thromboembolism that could be caused with the surgery while having the IUD.

Mirena and BBL
Your board certified plastic surgeon should be able to tell you if it will need to be removed. Under general anesthesia it can increase the risk of blood clots and DVT's so it can be an issue just like any other birth control or hormone therapy.
Thank you for your question and stay safe!
