Liposuction and insulin resistance syndrome
Thank you for asking about your liposuction and insulin resistance.
- Yes, you can almost certainly have liposuction.
- Your first step is to ask the doctor treating you to clear you for surgery.
- S/he may want you to wait until you are stable on your current treatment.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
