Water Retention Before Lipo?

I'm retaining water because I'm 3 days away from my period BUT I'm having lipo on my inner thighs in 2 days. Will having lipo done while retaining fluid mess up the end result?

   Water retention due to physiologic change probably factors very little into the final result.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Lipo and period

Having your period should not be a problem.  If concerned talk to your doctor as well. Good luck with your surgery.
