Beta Thalassemia Trait and Normal Hemoglobin. Can I Have A Tummy Tuck and Brazilian buttlift (BBL)?

Updated: Sep 3, 2019

Question: I only have beta thalassemia trait, my hemoglobin normally is around 11, but has been 12 before. Can I have a tummy tuck, liposuction, and Brazilian buttlift (BBL)?

Answer: A hematologist should be involved in this process to ensure that status is optimized.  I have operated on several people with carrier status without incident.  However, each patient needs to be evaluated thoroughly before a decision is made as reserve status will be different.  You might want to stage the procedures: liposuction and BBL first and then tummy tuck 6 months later.
