I have wanted a facelift for the past three years and now I have found the time and money to get one. However, my friend was telling me that I might not be eligible because I have a heart condition. Would this not permit me to undergo the surgery?
Whether or not you would be eligible to undergo a facelift would depend on the type of condition you have. Minor heart conditions are not a problem. Major heart conditions that require constant use of blood thinners may inhibit your ability to have an elective procedure. We would need to discuss your particular situation in more detail and perhaps speak to your cardiologist before making any decisions.
