In brief: OK before or after
It's your choice when as long as you're not currently pregnant.

In brief: No lipo if pregnant
It is not wise to undergo an elective cosmetic procedure during pregnancy and subject the baby to stresses that can be avoided until after delivery and nursing is complete.

In brief: Yes
Safety is not so much the issue.
Why would you do lipo if you are planning pregnancy and will have weight gain? Your result will change.

In brief: Before not during
Having had prior liposuction will not interfere with pregnancy.
It will not guarantee against weight gain however.
