Thin blood and aug

The best thing to do is to discuss this with your doctor and he can do some coagulation studies to see if you have a bleeding disorder.If those tests are normal you should do fine.thebruising is usually minimal.

Breast Aumentation With History Of Bleeding easily

Thank you for your question.  I would definitely see a hematologist prior to surgery.  They will do a blood work up to help determine why you are experiencing this and what needs to be done to correct it. 
Best wishes.

Getting breast augmentation and concerned about thin blood

Hi.. thank you for the question... before your surgery your PS will indicate some blood test to be done, one of them check your blood coagulation... Then he will determine if you need to see other specialist or not.

Agree with the previous expert responders. Obtain a full work up and clearance from a hematologist......

Thin blood before breast augmentation.

Hello Shanta81. Thanks for your question. I would recommend that you a specialist in blood diseases. They're called hematologists. They are considered experts on blood issues and one in your area can help you to identify why it takes longer for you to stop bleeding. There are some blood tests that you will need and they will ask you about your family history of bleeding, so be prepared. There may be some medications that you're taking like aspirin and ibuprofen that can contribute to this, but it's better to get an expert opinion. Best, Dr. ALDO.
