In brief: Depends on the dr

New protocols using tunescent ( local) anestheisa obviate the need for pre op blood work providing a good and complete history is obtained.
. ( no history of bleeding disoroders, platelet problems etc) and good general health and no history of reactions to local anesthesia in the past ( ie during dental procedures). In those cases patients don't routinely need pre op blood work.

In brief: Blood work - maybe

Your surgeon will determine whether blood work is necessary prior to your surgery.
It depends on your overall general health. Most people do not need blood work. http://www.dassmd.com/liposuction/index.html.

In brief: Blood test before su

The requirements for blood testing on a healthy male under 40 are none.
However each surgeon and the facility have their own protocol. You need to follow that.

In brief: Tests for lipo

Every doctor has their own pre-op protocol.
At the very least, you should expect to have routine boodwork. This is usually done a few weeks before the surgery, so your time is getting close. Check with your surgeon. Hopefully your are seeing a board certified plastic surgeon.
