Q&A: HEMOGLOBIN LEVEL AND TUMMY TUCK SURGERY?

"What Should Your Hemoglobin be for a TT?"

 

DR. POUSTI: Hemoglobin level and
Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Thank you for the question. Always best to check with your plastic surgeon about his/her guidelines. Generally speaking a hemoglobin of 12 or above would be considered “normal”. Slightly lower hemoglobin could also be acceptable depending on the specific patient…

Best wishes.
