How soon after Gallbladder Surgery (laparoscopic) can I have a BBL?

I had gallbladder removal surgery 10/12/16 via laparoscopy. I would like to have a BBL done in December. Is that a reasonable amount of time between the 2 procedures?

This is difficult to determine, but 3 months may be appropriate or longer.

You will have to get clearance from your general surgeon but in all likelihood you will have to wait 4-6 months minimum.
