Do I need to remove Mirena to get a Braziliarn Butt Lift and Tummy Tuck?

Hello, I am very interested in having a Brazilian Butt Lift, and Tummy Tuck. Do I have to take my Mirena (The IUD a Small, "T-shaped" device inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy) out to have this surgery?

Mirena Removal before Surgery

I do not require the removal of the Mirena for this surgery. The risk of pregnancy during your recovery period is higher than the thromboembolism that could be caused with the surgery while having the IUD.

     Your surgeon should make this decision based upon your overall risk factors for the development of blood clots.

Mirena and BBL

Your board certified plastic surgeon should be able to tell you if it will need to be removed. Under general anesthesia it can increase the risk of blood clots and DVT's so it can be an issue just like any other birth control or hormone therapy.

Thank you for your question and stay safe!

Aloha, the Brazilian Butt Lift and Tummy Tucks that interest you have no known IUD effects and vice versa.  You will not have to have the IUD removed as a condition for your procedures.
