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.
