I’m considering having my 28 year old breast implants removed. I don’t want new implants, but I’m unsure of whether I should have a mastopexy or not. I have protein S deficiency and am currently on Coumadin which complicates my situation. Can you give any advice? I am 50 years old.

    A bit more complicated but not at all insurmountable. Typically the protocol is to stop Coumadin several days before surgery and substitute subcutaneous heparin or Lovenox for better control. Coumadin is then resumed 2-3 days after surgery. Of course, sequential compressive hose are used during surgery to prevent blood pooling/clotting in the lower extremities. I hope this has been helpful.
