Can I Get a Tummy Tuck if I Have Benign Fasiculation Syndrome?

I have had chronic muscle twitching and fasiculations all over my body for about two years now. I have gotten used to them. I have seen a neurologist and had a full work up done. I was diagnosed with Benign Fasiculation syndrome. Would it be safe to get a tummy tuck even though I have this? I have had 6 children and I really want to fix myself up.

You should be fine to proceed to a tummy tuck with BFS but please verify with your oncologist.

Tummy Tuck and Benign Fasciculation Syndrome (BFS)
Ask the neurologist.
Your plastic surgeon will probably have you get a medical clearance letter from your internist or neurologist - if they say it is safe then I am sure you can have it done.
