Do prior health factors weigh in for breast reductions?

Q:

I have CHF and I know going under anesthesia can be risky. But will that stop me from having breast reduction surgery?

A:

Teri,

 

 Thanks for the question. It would be very advisable for you to seek out pre operative Cardio-Pulmonary Clearance from your Cardiologist for a General Anesthetic. They can assist you in determining if your CHF is a contraindication to your desired Breast Reduction Surgery. Best,

 

Gary Culbertson, MD, FACS
