Smart Lipo for Patient Potentially Allergic to Latex?

I am considering Smart Lipo although I have recently notice that when I am around Latex my skin gets splotchy. I have no other symptoms like itching, swelling or breathing issues. Is this a true latex allergy? Will I be able to have this procedure done?

 You may indeed have a latex allergy. The best way to figure this out is to be tested by an allergist.  But, it shouldn't hold you back from having liposuction.
