If you get medical clearance, liposuction and body tite can be coupled to get your best result.

Thank you for your question. With proper medical clearance, BodyTite should be a safe procedure for you. It is often combined with liposuction when larger volumes need to be removed. I suggest you consult with your cardiologist to assess whether you are cleared for undergoing this elective procedure.

I hope this was helpful - Dr. Moore.

I find that VASER is best for skin tightening and fat reduction. I suggest seeing an expert for treatment options.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Liposuction - will it be safe?

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • If you have major medical issues, you should not put yourself in the hands of a cosmetic surgeon.
  • Many have no surgical training and do not understand serious surgical issues.
  • Please ask your heart surgeon to examine you and clear you for surgery.
  • If you are cleared, then  consult another platic surgeon about the wisdom of liposuction.
  • If two plastic surgeons turn you down - chances are you should not have it done.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Your ability to undergo a liposuction procedure depends on your overall health. You will almost certainly need preoperative evaluation and clearance from her cardiologist.Whether you'd benefit from a liposuction procedure depends on the quality of your skin. If your skin is thick, with good elasticity and no excess, any type of liposuction should work well.Make sure that your "cosmetic surgeon" is actually a board-certified plastic surgeon.

I'm not familiar with that procedure and would suggest re submitting your question with good pictures. Good luck.
