Delaware plastic surgery patients and Pennsylvania plastic surgery patients may require preoperative testing before their cosmetic surgery. This is true before cosmetic facial surgery, cosmetic breast surgery, cosmetic liposuction, cosmetic tummy tuck, and most plastic surgery procedures. You must schedule your pre-surgery testing as soon as you receive your packet for your surgery. This testing is your responsibility and is required to be done prior to your surgery. If your preoperative testing is not completed before your surgery date, your surgery may be cancelled.
Mammograms are extremely important before breast surgery. This includes before cosmetic breast surgery and cosmetic breast enlargement. Please have your mammogram completed right away. It is very common for the radiologist to “call you back” for additional views or ultrasounds. It can cause a delay up to a week and interfere with your cosmetic breast surgery. It can be very scary when this happens as it can raise your fear of possible cancer. If you get called back, it is probably “not” cancer, but you must follow through and have the necessary testing completed.
Both Delaware plastic surgery patients and Pennsylvania plastic surgery patients need to complete all preoperative testing in a timely fashion. as to not delay or cancel your surgery. Please call our office with any questions regarding preoperative testing.
