No physical examination necessary if you see a physician on a regular basis and are otherwise healthy before a Lifestyle Lift. A physical examination will be performed by your "Lifestyle Lift" surgeon during the preoperative visit. If you do not have any issues with the heart, lungs, blood clots, strokes, diabetes, sleep apnea or collagen vascular disease such as Rheumatoid arthritis, then, you are considered a healthy 70 year old.
I am a 70-year-old woman very good health; will I need to have a physical before I have the lifestyle lift?
