Active hidradenitis will increase the risk for infection with any operation.

Liposuction with active hidradentis suppurative
- You question is very reasonable and very important.
- I worry about any surgeon who wants to do liposuction in an area of active or chronic infection.
- Your hidradenitis should be under control before any surgery in the area -
- And often surgery is needed to control hidradenitis.
- I would suggest you get a second opinion from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon before having this liposuction.
