Your period

Do not worry - the timing of your period is of no relevance to your surgery. You need to control the things that you can and not worry about the things that you cannot.

Menstrual cycle and Surgery Date?

In most cases, this is really not an issue. If there a problem with increased frequency of bleeding or amount, you may need additional examination, but this is unusual.

I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Menstrual cycle should not affect surgery

Let me add the caveat that you should not use tampons as they can be implicated in toxic shock syndrome. Also, please keep in mind that the use of aspirin or other medications for menstrual cramps may be prohibited by your plastic surgeon as they will increase bleeding Finally, keep in mind that anesthesia can affect your menstrual periods in a variety of ways so this may be a moot issue.

Menstruation and Surgery #tummytuck

This should not be a problem in that there is no reason to cancel your surgery. It will not affect your result. Just make sure the team is aware and that they are ok with proceeding, but I can not imagine why they would not.
