first and foremost discuss this with your cardiologists. if it is a relatively small area it can be done under local anesthesia. even then your doctor will probably want to use adrenaline as part of that local anesthetic. that could be an issue. a conversation between your plastic surgeon and cardiologists should resolve this for you. smartlipo itself is a laser and will have no affect on the condition.
