I've been getting Electrolysis done on my stomach for a year now, and I'm getting Liposuction done on the same area as well pretty soon. Is that okay, and can I continue to have Electrolysis done on my stomach after surgery?
Electrolysis After Liposuction?

Absolutely you can have liposuction and electrolysis of the same area
There is no reason you cant have both electrolysis and liposuction of your abdomen. I would just wait about 6 weeks to make sure every thing has healed well. I would also consider using laser hair removal as apposed to electrolysis
Wait 3 months after liposuction to have electrolysis-laser hair removal is a better option
I would wait 3 months after having liposuction of the abdomen before having electrolysis.
Electrolysis can break the skin and can cause an infection; therefore, I would wait.
Why not consider hair removal with a laser or IPL - they work and don't violate the skin.
