Would I be fine for surgery?

I recently had a left side, Thyroidectomy back in August 2019. Since then my results including blood work have all come back in normal range. I know some doctors won’t perform on you if you have or had certain health issues. I just want to make sure before I spend any money would I be fine for surgery? When I sent my consultation to the surgeons I included in my questionnaire and was approved.

Procedure: Liposuction
Location: Mount Vernon, NY

Having a thyroid condition that is stable should not prevent you from having liposuction good luck

Hello. As long as your thyroid function and labs are within normal limits, you should be able to have liposuction and it should not effect your healing after surgery.

Thank you for sharing your question. As it appears all has stabilized you should be fine to have surgery if otherwise a good candidate.
