I have a pain pump installed in my stomach and my stomach is the area I would want the ultrasonic lipo done?

Ultrasonic liposuction around a pain pump
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- One would need to examine you to advise you.
- Ultrasonic liposuction near any implant can affect it.
- The person who makes the decision should be the doctor who placed the pain pump and the doctor treating you for the condition requiring it.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes, Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD

Thanks for your inquiry, but without examining you it is hard to advise. I would not want a patient to have ultrasonic liposuction anywhere near an implanted device. Good luck.
