Tummy Tuck with HEP C Okay?
Doctor Answers (1)
It's ok if you've been medically cleared
I have done a number of tummy tucks on patients with Hep C that is undetectable and they have been medically cleared and they do just fine. Never had a problem. Anesthesia I think has always been the same as it is regardless of the hepatitis status.
Hope this helps!
