Risks of Facelift for Patient with Protein S Deficiency?
I am wanting a Facelift surgery but I have a slight protein S deficiency, making me slightly higher risk for blood clots.
I am 42 yrs old. My hematologist says I can have surgery and hold aspirin prior to, but should have DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) therapy afterwards by walking, wearing compression hose for 1 week after.
I do not have any medical conditions, other than this irregular blood result, which is only milder borderline. Do you think it would be a problem for me to have surgery. I hope it won't concern the plastic surgeon. I am otherwise extremely healthy and thin.
