NO! is the simple answer to your question. Do not look at the liposuction as a cause for non conceiving. Discuss with your surgeon in detail.

Liposuction should NOT affect trying to become Pregnant

+1

A Liposuction done well and which is not associated with intraabdominal penetration should have NO effect either way on your attempts to get pregnant. If you are attempting to become pregnant, you may wish to postpone body contouring surgery to after you are done having a family and your weight has normalized.

Liposuction will not affect your ability to conceive

+1

Normal forms of liposuction will not change the way that your hormones cycle and you conceive.  It is possible that your monthly cycle will be disturbed for that month of the procedure but every thing should return to normal.

Best Wishes.

Liposuction should not be done if you're pregnant.

+1

Liposuction shouldn't be done if you are pregnant, but the act of the surgery and its healing should not cause a negative effect in trying to conceive after surgery. It's wise to await a time when you're not taking any pain medication and to allow for the insertion sites to be healed before being sexually actrive. Check with your surgeon as the timing might change based on how much and which locations will be done.

Liposuction involves removing the fatty tissue under the skin.  It should not affect your ability to have children.
