Congratulations! The next important step is to ensure your continued health & safety. A patient who has undergone surgery for weight loss may have nutritional issues to manage before being surgery-worthy for future improvements. A complete lab work-up and detailed consultation is necessary before planning any plastic surgery. Patient safety is of paramount importance. The ability to consume, digest and absorb nutrients is altered with many weight loss surgeries. Careful perioperative management helps to ensure rapid, complete wound healing after cosmetic surgery. Contact us for the bloodwork requirement list. You may submit it to your lab of choice and when the labwork is completed, have them fax us the results. Dr. Tim R. Love, MD will then review it and let us know if you are possibly a candidate for surgery. We will then call you to schedule your consultation.
