Last year I had my ovaries removed thru an old abdominal scar from a previous surgery. My surgeon mentioned post op that the fascia holding up my bowel(?) was 'ratty' and might require repair with mesh in the future. Could abdominal lipo cause any problem?

Abdominal hernia is a contraindication to lipoplasty
You should absolutely have a full evaluation and repair of any abdominal wall dehiscence, weakness or hernia before you ever consider abdominal liposuction by any method or technology. Actually, any hernia repaired by mesh is a contraindication to lipoplasty, especially VASER lipoplasty for me. The mesh-less hernia repair should be completely healed before lipoplasty is performed to avoid the risk of intra-abdominal penetration or bowl extrusion.

I am not sure what a ratty fascia is but you should check with that surgeon(gynecologist?) to have him explain what he meant. Liposuctioning does not involve the fascia. As long as you have someone who knows what they are doing and have no hernias it should be OK
