Will Smart Lipo Create Any Problem If I Have PCOS?

Hello. I am a 37 year old female who after having 3 children am thinking about having smart lipo done. The catch is that I have PCOS as well as had a pulmonary embolism after my first c-section (my first child). Is this procedure something that I would need to take blood thinners following?

Hi,

Yes, I think that blood thinning medicine will be required if you want a liposuction done, as you already have a history of pulmonary embolism.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
