I appreciate your question.

The answer to your question is yes.  Lab work must be repeated 2 weeks prior to surgery.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

Multiple procedures, some advices:

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.

For safety reasons, to be a good candidate for the procedures you want at the same time, your labs and cardiovascular preoperative evaluation must be optimal.
Therefore, you must be a healthy person, within an appropriate BMI and no history of diseases that increase the surgical / anesthetic risk degree.
Finally, I recommend you a skilled certified plastic surgeon in body contouring surgery and experienced in cases like yours where the planned operating time is less than five hours.

Pre op preparation and tests

The answer to your question is : yes. Lab work is only good for about one month pre op . It is very important to have actual lab work and cardio evaluation before undergoing any surgery .

Lab work

Thank you for your question.

This is best answered by your plastic surgeon because every office has different policys. At my office, if they are within 6 months then I do not require additional testing. Best to check what your doctors office’s policy is on lab work. Best of luck.
