- The answer is 'probably' -
- There are many auto-immune diseases and they range from minimal to devastating.
- Ask your regular doctor or your rheumatologist their thoughts on surgery for you.
- They may feel it is fine, that it is fine with certain precautions but if you are very ill with it, they will not want you to have elective surgery.

Mommy Makeover Candidate
#autoimmune disorders have a wide range of severity. It is not necessarily a final deterrent for having a #mommymakeover, but it will put you at risk for more #complications. I would need more information on your specific disorder and how it affects your body.
Please have an in-person consultation with a #boardcertified plastic surgeon for more details.

You would first need to be cleared for elective surgery by both your primary care doctor as well as the specialist that is treating you for your autoimmune disorder prior to moving forward.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
