Thank you for your question. Having liposuction is an additive stress on the body so I would prefer the Accutane be finished, then wait 6 months for a surgery.  I hope this helps.

Surgery after Accutane use

Because of the changes that occur in the skin with Accutane use, the safest policy is to wait a year after discontinuing treatment before having an elective procedure.
