PCOS and Liposuction
An article published a year ago showed that lipid levels may be improved in type II diabetics. There may be effects on PCOS from liposuction but little data exists.

Ovarian drilling uses laparoscopic surgery to coax your ovaries to ovulate.
- Various reports, latest given below, show that ovarian drilling can have a 'high pregnancy rate.'
- Gonadotropin hormone therapy is usually the first step if clonipin and meformin are ineffective.
- No study shows liposuction has any benefit at all.
- Ideally getting fit will help your PCOS and your general health but it is hard to lose weight with PCOS. Hope this helps!
