Question: 
I had a heart attack three years ago.  Last fall I had a complete cardio check up and everything is great.  Before my HA I was extremely active and I still am.  I would very much like to have a tummy tuck and was wondering what specific risks would be involved for me.  I take Lipitor and Asprin daily.  thanks

I would get a stress ECHO to confirm your heart is OK, and then go for it!
