In brief: For sure
Any immune modulating medications may interfere with wound healing and increase risk of infections.
Moreover, a fleur de lis abdominoplasty is a significant procedure and a very careful and accurate preparation is mandatory to limit postoperative complications. Discuss all meds with your surgeons.
