Absolutely, yes. Liposuction should have no effect on a woman’s ability to carry a child. Because liposuction is performed only on the subcutaneous fat layer located above the abdominal muscle, it does not in any way interfere with your internal musculature, the underlying anatomical structures, and reproductive organs.
Liposuction is perfectly safe for women of childbearing age. Liposuction impacts only the subcutaneous fat layer above the abdominal muscles. Therefore, it does not have any impact on the reproductive organs or the ability to conceive or carry a child.
Liposuction is a technique that removes
diet and exercise resistant fat from different areas of the body. Since lipo affects
only the body contours, it should not affect your ability to have a healthy
pregnancy. However, pregnancy can have a significant impact on the body.
Stretched or sagging skin, loose abdominal muscles and stubborn pockets of fat
are common side effects of pregnancy, which is why some women choose to have a
mommy makeover to restore their body after childbirth. You can enjoy the
results of liposuction now, and after pregnancy you may decide to have
additional cosmetic procedures.
There should be no reason that liposuction should prevent you from carrying
a child.Liposuction is performed above
the abdominal muscle and does not affect the abdominal muscle’s ability to
stretch to accommodate a baby.
If you mean could you get pregnant, the answer is yes. If you mean could you pick up your child after abdominal liposuction, that would depend upon your surgeon's instructions. However, after the initial recovery period, you should be fine to pick up a young child.
There is no reason why you cant get pregnant after liposuction, the area that is treated is way above and not near where you will get pregnant and carry a baby. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thanks for your question. With either definition of "carry" the answer is the same. There should be no issues with you becoming or staying pregnant. There are also no restrictions with lifting weight "children" after liposuction. Best of luck!
Having abdominal liposuction should have no bearing on your ability to carry a pregnancy. Liposuction addresses the fatty layer between the skin and the abdominal muscles. Everything deep to the abdominal muscle layer is unchanged.
Thank you for your question. Typically patients are able to resume daily activities 7-10 days after liposuction. You might be unable to pick your child up right away since you will experience some discomfort. If you have someone who can help out, that would be good.
Thank you for asking about
- Yes - having abdominal liposuction has no affect on your having a normal pregnancy.
- And yes - if you mean if you can lift your child but it will be 7-10 days until it is comfortable to do so.
