Q. I’m a 43 years old female, I want to have extended Tummy Tuck w/ Liposuction. Creatinine 1.2, Hemoglobin 16.2, Hematocrit 50.1.
A. Laboratory information is only one piece of the puzzle to matching you with the right surgeon and the right procedure.
Once you have been evaluated by a Board Certified, caring and experienced Plastic Surgeon, the 2 of you will sit and discuss which options for body contouring are best. You will consider the benefits, limitations, side-effects, risks and complications as well as recovery period and other social and personal issues. Then, if all is in order, your primary care physician should provide you a second examination and check your heart and lungs and other body functions using lab work and EKG to provide a measure of the risk of anesthesia and surgery.
While this seems overwhelming and time-consuming, it is in your best interest to obtain all the information for you to make the best decision toward a elective surgical procedure.
I hope this has been helpful! All the best!
