irregular heart beats

Hi. I had chin lipo 3 weeks ago and since then I am getting irregular heart beats and muscle tightness on my left side of my neck. I just want to know what dr should I be going to get my chin lipo checked out or should I get an mri/xray for my chin? I have a lot of lumps on my chin and tightness. I am getting concerned. Please help.

Hello, good morning, I think you should go to see a cardiologist to begin with. I found that the irregular heart beats are not directly related to your surgical procedure, this needs to be ruled out before any thing, most likely every thing will be alright but, this evaluation is important for you.

I really hope this helps you.

Dear Elizabeth,

You need to immediately call your plastic surgeon and inform him/her of your symptoms and concerns. They may tell you to get to your primary care doctor or cardiologist, but they need to know what is happening with you. Good luck!

Hello! First of all regarding your health. The specialist you should see for your irregular heartbeats is a cardiologist and immediately. Regarding the control of the evolution of your surgery, it is up to your plastic surgeon, no one better than him knows what technique he use, and every detail of the procedure to know the possible evolution of your surgery. And finally, keep your surgeon informed of your heart problem, if it appeared after surgery and you had not previously had any symptoms. Don't waste time.
