Yes w clearance: Yes as long as it is stable and well controlled this is not an issue. You should inform both your cardiologist and anesthesiologist well ahead of scheduling surgery.
Dr. Alex Lechtman
Plastic Surgery 30 years experience
Yes: Any operation has risks. Communicate with your plastic surgeon and your cardiologist ahead of time. Ask your surgeon to help you set up a meeting with the anesthesiologist ahead of your surgery date so all concerns can be addressed and you won't get canceled on the day of surgery.
Dr. Jeffrey Roth

Yes, Depends on you.: You would have to be cleared by your cardiologist. The anesthesiologist should also be in the loop. If your situation is well controlled and you are otherwise healthy, you should be ok. Make sure you see a board certified plastic surgeon who operates in an approved, certified operating room.
Dr. Tom Pousti
Specializes in Plastic Surgery
Probably.: Many patients with cardiac arrhythmias are able to proceed with elective breast surgery. However, prior to surgery will be important to be evaluated by your cardiologist; he/she may have recommendations to improve perioperative safety. Careful selection of plastic surgeon, anesthesia provider, and location of surgery “facility” will also be important.
Dr. Daniel Careaga

Cardiologist: Your cardiologist will be the one to give you the thumbs up or down on this one. Generally WPW does not cause problems with general anesthesia but you should definitely repeat an ekg and get your cardiologist's clearance.
