Pregnancy Testing Prior to Elective Plastic Surgery
Elective Surgery and pregnancy
Oh my gosh, you must be so worried. The first thing to do is go to your OB physician and have them check things out. Anesthesia during pregnancy can increase the risk to your baby. Your OB is the best physician to address that with you. However, remember that emergency surgery is done during pregnancy and babies come out fine, although everyone is very concerned and is watchful. I wish I didn't have to admit this, but I have had a patient that, in hindsight, became pregnant between the time we got a negative serum pregnancy test (7 days before) and her breast surgery. We all were very concerned and it was a very difficult time. That was over 8 years ago. Thankfully the baby was unharmed. I wish you the best and want to reassure you that the percentages are on your side. Take care of your health and baby first. The rest will work itself out.
