In brief: Preop

It depends on the operation, your health and what type of anesthesia you are going to be given.

In brief: Blood

If it is a minor procedure and you are healthy no labs needed.
Other procedure may need labs.

In brief: Don't skip it

If you are having surgery, plastic surgery or otherwise, it is important that you are medically stable for your surgery.
This may involve preoperative blood tests, ekg or chest x-ray depending on your age and medical history. If your surgeon does not evaluate you medically before surgery, you may be at increased risk.

In brief: Perhaps

If you're going to have general anesthesia, or a particularly complex procedure, you may well be asked to have an ekg or blood tests, as you are approaching 50.
If you are generally healthy, and the procedure is less than formidable, you may not need anything. Ask your surgeon, of course - that's your best resource. Good luck.
