Abstract

Rarely, patients with blood disorders may seek to undergo plastic surgery. Although plastic surgeons are not expected to diagnose or manage blood disorders, they should be able to recognize which patients are suitable for surgery and which should be referred to a hematologist before a procedure. This practice advisory provides an overview of the perioperative steps that should be completed to ensure appropriate care for patients with blood disorders.
