Pre-op health considerations prior to tummy tuck surgery #plasticsurgery
Pre op evaluations prior to multiple procedures
As plastic surgeons, we need to make sure that our patients are in the very best health possible prior to undergoing elective surgical operations. We know that abdominoplasty and multiple procedures performed at the same time put our patient at an increased risk of having adverse events. I am not privy to your unique situation, but having a physical and routine blood work prior to the described procedures seems very reasonable.
Each surgeon has his or her requirements before surgery is performed. Safety is the primary concern. The combination of procedures you are having is common in our industry.Hope this helps.Dr. Ali Mosharrafa
