Menstrual period after surgery

Sorry to hear this.  It is not uncommon for patients' menstrual cycles to be affected, either delayed or advanced, after surgery but usually this occurs when general or intravenous anesthesia is involved.  If you had Smart Lipo under local in the office, it would be more unusual.  I would recommend that you see your gynecologist to rule out any underlying medical conditions, apart from the lipo, that could be causing this issue.

No Menstrual Period After Surgery?

Thank you for the question.

It is not unusual for patients'  menstrual cycles to be delayed after surgery.  I would expect the cycle to resume at this point;  if it doesn't, then visit with your gynecologist may be helpful.

Best wishes.
