You would need blood work to determine how anemic you may be. Patients with mild anemia often can have surgery, although it depends on the type of surgery. We have often performed a BBL on patients with mild anemia, but again, it depends on the degree of anemia and your overall health. In some cases you need to be cleared by a hematologist. But in any case if you were told that you are anemic it would be a good idea to take iron pills on aregular basis if that's what you were prescribed.
Hello, thank you for your question. All elective surgeries should be done under the best health conditions of the patient. Anemic patients should not have Lipo / BBL because of the chances of needing blood transfusion and have hipovolemic symptoms and signs. Have a great day.
You would need to be seen and have blood work done to see how anemic you are before going ahead with surgery. Best of luck.
