INR and blood clots. What if the clots happen during the surgery?

I advise you to be very careful concerning your decision making and consider having your family doctor refer you to a hematologist for more precise characterization of your risk for blood clots. If you really are at high risk for blood clots, I would advise you to think twice about proceeding with cosmetic surgery.
