How Soon After an Appendectomy Can Abdominal Liposuction be Performed?

Doctor Answers 3

Liposuction can be done about 6 months after your appy.

Liposuction can be done easily for your abdomen after an appy but you should probably wait at least 6 months for the scar to mature since it will most likely need to be undermined to get rid of the puckering which is usually seen with appy scars.  Sincerely,

Examination best....



You really need to be examined to determine this. After a simple appendectomy it might be possible as soon as 3 months afterward but after a more complicated one I would wait a year.
