Herpetic : Herpetic outbreaks are often sporatic but can be spurred on by stress. Any surgery can be both emotionally and physically stressful. I suggest that you contact your plastic surgeon and see if they feels a course of antivirals pre and post operatively might minimize your risk of an acute outbreak. There is no need to make you more miserable than you need to after a tummy tuck. Best wishes.

It : It is probably wise to wait for atleast a year after your gastric bypass before considering any body contouring surgery. I would also recommend that your weight be stable before seeking consultations for corrections. Follow up regularily with your bariatric surgeon for labs and follow their advise regarding suppliments to provide proper nutrients and vitamins during this weight loss phase. Best wishes on this adventure.

Medicaid : Medicaid coverage for breast reduction surgery will be decided by each individual state. Coverage varies. You might ask your doctor for a referral to a local plastic surgeon for a consultation and i would bet their office could best answer that question for you. Breast reduction surgery can be very rewarding for both patient and surgeon. Best wishes.
