Liposuction after colostomy reversal
Thank you for your question. Yes, liposuction can be performed on your abdomen after a colostomy reversal. You are likely to have some scar tissue in the area that can make the procedure a little more challenging, but in the hands of an experienced surgeon, you should do just fine.
Liposuction with previous stoma?
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Yes, you can have liposuction around a previous stoma -
- You must have a plastic surgeon do the surgery because the scar around the stoma makes the surgery a little more difficult and great care must be taken.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
