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

Can I have this done with the pump in me?

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.
