Lower Body Lift after Two 2-level spine fusions

I have scheduled a lower body lift (abdominoplasty, thigh and butt lift) for mid-September.  I've had 4 spine surgeries within 18 months, the most recent being a 2-level fusion at L4/L5/S1 a little over a year ago and 8 months prior to that I had C4/5/6 fused.  I have a titanium plate and 5 screws in my cervical spine and 2 rods and 6 screws in my lumbar spine. Does anyone know if a body lift will hinder my fusion in any way?

A lower body lift is a superficial operation involving soft tisses, fat and some fascia repair.  It does not involve muscle or body structures and should have no bearing on previous spinal surgery.
