Diet before Liposuction
Thank you for the question.
Generally it is in patients' best interest to have achieved a long-term stable weight before undergoing liposuction surgery. The surgery is meant to treat diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue.
Anti-inflammatory medications after the procedure are in my opinion of less importance when it comes to the end results of the liposuction surgery. These medications will help with swelling and discomfort but will not necessarily determine the success of the operation as much as maintaining stable weight.
I hope this helps.
