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.

It is important to have this heart condition resolved first. Ask your cardiologist what he feels is recomendable for you. Best of luck

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.

It’s unfortunate that your surgery was cancelled. You’ll need to resolve your condition before proceeding with surgery. Please follow up with your primary care physician.

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
