Do chronic diseases such as kidney and lung disease rule you out as a candidate for a face lift? How about breast augmentation?
Dr. Dean Kane Q & A
Q. Do chronic diseases such as kidney and lung disease rule you out as a candidate for a face lift? How about breast augmentation?
A. With spectacular medical innovations and new drugs, increasing numbers of people are living with chronic diseases who have may have had shorter lives years ago.
Surgical techniques and devices have improved and are available for medically optimized individuals.
Surgery and procedures which require local, sedation and general anesthetics offer a safe positive experience for the majority of elective cosmetic procedures.
There are many considerations, costs, recovery time and other factors to review. There are many, many patients who proceed with positively reaching their desires and goals.
A well experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and your Primary Care Physician must evaluate you, optimize your medical condition(s) and if the risk / benefit ratio is reasonable proceed recognizing this DOES NOT mean no risk.
I hope this was helpful.
All the best!
