Liposuction and safety

+2

First and foremost when we are considering surgery of any kind, we want to make sure it is as safe as possible. A thorough evaluation by the MD taking care of you for your seizure disorder would be necessary to determine if anesthesia and the procedure will place you at a higher risk for having a seizure either during surgery or after. Once that has been addressed, then a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in cosmetic surgery of the legs (ASAPS member) should evaluate you and determine if you are a candidate for such a procedure. The potential for great results can not overshadow the importance of safety

Liposuction and Seizure Disorder

+2

Your plastic surgeon and neurologist will need to communicate and determine your safety for liposuction.  There are drugs injected during liposuction surgery that can, in high doses, increase your risk of seizures.  It is possible to avoid using these drugs, and your plastic surgeon should share this info with your neurologist to achieve the safest and best option for you.

Liposuction of Legs

     Liposuction of legs can be performed if you have lipodystrophy of those areas.  However, your seizure disorder needs to be managed, and you need clearance from your neurologist.
