When to Consider a Revision

Typically, its best to wait at least one year following the initial surgery to consider a #revision. Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation. All surgical #procedures carry some degree of #risk. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation. The suitability of your procedures and any specific risks may be determined during you #consultation. Also, another element to a #satisfying result of your procedures are realistic #expectations.

Safety first

It is important that this issue is addressed before scheduling surgery again.  You will likely need to get clearance from your primary doctor, or perhaps a cardiologist before considering having surgery.  I know this is frustrating, but your safety is always the number one priority.

I am so sorry your surgery had to be cancelled. It is important to get your heart rate under control before anesthesia. Please follow up with your primary care doctor/cardiologist for medical clearance before proceeding with surgery. Always use a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Mommy make-over - cancelled, when can it be done?

Thank you for asking about your mommy make-over.
  • I am sorry your surgery had to be cancelled -
  • You can't reschedule your surgery until the cause of your faste heart rate is diagnosed and treated.
  • Your primary care doctor - and perhaps a cardiologist - will need to see you to figure this.
  • Once it is treated, you can reschedule your surgery.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
