Patient safety is always of utmost importance. Ensuring that you are in optimal condition is important for surgery, but also for your recovery. Hypertension, or other medical conditions, will not necessarily prevent you from having surgery, as long as they are controlled. The most important thing to do is to meet with your board-certified plastic surgeon and discuss these issues so that you can achieve the best results you can as safely as possible, and enjoy those result for years to come. Part of that evaluation may also include discussions with your primary care physician, to ensure that you are safe to undergo a surgical procedure.
