Is it safe to have liposuction before getting pregnant and having a baby?

Yes. Liposuction surgery should not in any way complicate pregnancy. However, I suggest my patients (for optimal long-term outcomes) postpone any type of body contouring surgery if they are planning on having pregnancies in the near future.
Probably safe. A full consultation is necessary to determine your situation and goals. Liposuction is a relatively safe procedure.
Yes. It is safe to have liposuction prior to pregnancy. Most women have better quality skin prior to childbearing, and will hence have better results after liposuction alone. After pregnancy, women often also require a skin excisional procedure.
Probably safe. If having lipo long before conceiving and your body is free of all peri-operative meds, it is likely safe and will have no effect on the pregnancy.

Do you think it could be a waste to get liposuction before getting pregnant?

No. Pregnancy is often associated with weight gain and an increased percentage of body fat. Healthy weight gain during pregnancy is easily reversed very shortly after the post delivery period. However, excessive weight gain during pregnancy greater than 15-20 lbs. Will likely lead to contour irregularities requiring additional liposuction to improve them.
Liposuction/pregnanc. I think so. If you are thinking about getting pregnant any time in the near future, I would advise you to delay any type of body contouring surgery. Wait until you have had all the children you want, save some money and then consider a mommy makeover. It's your best chance to get a great result.
May be. If you are planning on pregnancies in the near future, best to wait on having any type of body contouring surgery at this point. Complete pregnancies, achieve a long-term stable weight, and then evaluate to see whether you will need the help of a plastic surgeon to achieve your goals. Best wishes.
Probably. I would discourage any procedures (liposuction, tummy tucks) if you are planning to get pregnant, .
Maybe not. Lipo will permanently remove fat cells from the area, but not all of them. If you gain a lot of weight in pregnancy, you may store some in your previously lipo'd area, but it will be easier to lose from that area as well. If you haven't had any kids, you may want to wait to see how much your skin stretches, you may want a tummy tuck in the future. Http://www. OmahaCosmeticSurgery. Com.

Does it make sense to get a liposuction just before getting pregnant?

Yes. Since liposuction will remove the fat and its stem cell replacements, having liposuction prior to pregnancy is not a problem. It is very important to take all precautions to be certain you have not become pregnant and be unaware at the time of surgery-anesthesia. Fat cells taken from problem areas will tend not to recur, making the reduction after pregnancy easier with diet-exercise.
No. I would strongly recommend you wait until after pregnancy before you consider any type of body contouring procedure. Your body will change with pregnancy and may require a different contouring procedure such as an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck.
Liposuction pregnant. Avoid liposuction before duirng and right after pregnancy. There is no reason to have an elective procedure risking your baby's health. If you had liposuction right before pregnancy, your body fat will change again. Do the liposuction after pregnancy and after nursing.
No lipo w pregnancy. If you're considering pregnancy don't do liposuction. Wait for your body to equilibrate after pregnancy. Some develop new fatty accumulations post partum. When you've delivered and finished nursing, then you can consider liposuction.
Better to wait. If you are definitely planning on getting pregnant, it's best to wait until after pregnancy because your body will be going thru a lot of changes. You may gain more weight and also get more stretching of the skin after pregnancy. From a medical standpoint, you could have liposuction safely before trying to conceive but you need to make sure you're not pregnant if considering liposuction.
Short answer: no. Long answer: no one can predict with certainty how your body will respond to this pregnancy. If you gain a lot of weight, you will have wasted your money on liposuction. If you lose weight after your pregnancy, you may not need liposuction or you may need/want a tummy tuck more than liposuction. Overall, this is a really bad time to be thinking of liposuction!

Does liposuction interfere with getting pregnant?

No. There are currently no known links between liposuction and the ability to get pregnant. Anesthesia required for liposuction may have an effect however.
No. Not in the absence of major complications from the liposuction. Temporary suppression maybe. Liposuction can actually improve metabolic health, eg diabetes.
Pregnancy after lipo. As long as you do not conceive during the immediate day and couple of days after, there should be no problem becoming pregnant. Make sure that if you are placed on any medication during the surgery, such as an antibiotic with a long term half life, that you discuss this with your surgeon and possbily OB and pediatrician.
No. Liposuction only removes some of the excess fat- it is superficial and has nothing to do with ability to get pregnant.
It should not. It should not interfere with pregnancy but that leads me to question whether you have had it or are contemplating liposuction prior to pregnancy. If your are soon to be with child, it may not make sense to have lipo any time soon. If you have had lipo, there should be no obvious deleterious effects on your pregnancy.
