     All of these things need to worked up prior to surgery with an allergist and a primary care doctor to ensure that your triggers are not medication related.  If you know what your triggers are from previous workup make all of those things known to both your plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
