Liver function tests are usually required before going under general anesthesia. These concerns will be addressed in the context of your suitability for surgery.

The health of our liver will need to be assessed before surgery is considered. Liposuction results are highly surgeon dependent. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Liposuction, including laser liposuction should not result in a problem of "fatty liver".  However, if a patient has a history of liver disease, they should check with their primary physician before undergoing any surgery, including a liposuction.  Best wishes.
