My husband is 55 and takes blood thinners for a medical condition. Does this mean he cannot undergo a nose job?
Depends on the blood thinner and the reason he takes it. He would definitely need to be off all blood thinners before and after surgery. If his primary care doctor feels that is safe and its possible then things can be coordinated and taken care of but if his doctor thinks its unsafe for him to be off his blood thinners more than a few days then its probably best to avoid elective rhinoplasty surgery. While emergency surgery can be done in these cases, elective cosmetic surgery is not wise due to risks associated with being off his blood thinners.
