Thank you for your question.

You would need to be cleared by both your primary care physician and endocrinologist prior to undergoing elective 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.

Thank you for your question.

You would need a clearance from your medical doctor to clear you to undergo elective surgery. It is always best to have your medical conditions stabilized and under control before having surgery to reduce your risk of complications. Best of luck.

A question like this cannot be answered in an online forum as it is not safe for possible for doctors who have never met you to clear you for surgery.  I would schedule a visit with a board certified plastic surgeon, and have your primary care doctor and/or hematologist (whoever manages your medical conditions) aware and in agreement with the surgical plan.  These conditions do not necessarily preclude your surgery, but you need to have all of your specialists on board.
Best of luck!
