I have tachycardia, does this disqualify me as a candidate for Lapex Laser Lipo?

I would like to have Lapex Laser Lipo performed on my abdominal area but I have tachycardia. It is controlled with medications. Does my condition disqualify me as a candidate for the procedure?

Tachycardia, which is considered an increase of heart rate above 90 beats/min, has many causes like anxiety, stress, infection, thyroid conditions, damage in the electrical activity of the heart, etc. These days, most of the liposuction doctors use ephineprine to reduce bleeding during the procedure. This medication increases your heart rate and, in patients with a baseline high rate, can potentially increase it to a dangerous level. My advice is to consult with your primary care doctor and cardiologist before taking on any procedure.
