Thank you for your question. Please speak with your surgeon's office for their recommended lab and doctor's office for a physical. You should always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Where do I get lab work for Rhinoplasty at?
Please ask your rhinoplasty surgeon where they might typically send patients for blood draws and then find out if your insurance uses that particular facility. If not, then your insurance company can help you find a lab close to you to get the blood work performed.
Insurance will typically cover the blood work and will often cover your prescriptions.
Where Shall I get my Pre-Op Lab Tests?
Since your Pladtic surgeon ordered these tests, he should have told you where to have them done. Personally, I order blood tests that make a difference in what I do and or are required by the anesthesiologist so work with. I usually ask that they be done by the primary care doctor because I would like to keep them in the loop in the rare case that such a test is abnormal.

Lab work prior to a rhinoplasty
In our practice,we do not perform lab work on all patient's, unless there is some underlying metabolic condition that is present. Your primary care physician or your rhinoplasty surgeon can order any lab work deemed necessary
