Brazilian buttock lift in a patient with diabetes

You must have medical clearance from your primary care physician or endocrinologist to be sure your blood sugars are well controlled. You are at a higher risk for infection than other patients.

It can be done provided your diabetes is very well controled.

In any event you you are at a higher risk for infection. If the blood sugar is high  You are not a candidate for surgery
