Is It Okay to Donate Plasma After Surgery Such As Cheek Implant or Anything Non Implant Related?

the plasma center said that it's okay but i'm worried that it may increase the chances of infection or weaken the immune system or do anything detrimental to alter any ideal results. i will be asking the doctor of course as well but your opinion is highly valued as well

There is no medical evidence that suggests that any type of blood donation after having any form of facial surgery, including cheek implants, places it at an increased risk for postoperative problems.

I am not aware of any cases in which donating plasma after a facial implant procedure created any issues. I would, however, definitely direct this question to your chosen plastic surgeon to obtain their advice. I hope this information is helpful.

Plasma donation after cosmetic surgery

 It is certainly acceptable to donate plasma after a minor surgical procedure. Probably best to wait a month until after a major procedure.
