As long as your sugars are controlled, laser lipo under local anesthesia is very safe. You should have no problems as long as you receive medical clearance.
your diabetes needs to be well controlled before a surgeon will proceed safely with surgery. Your HgbA1C should be less than 7.0

You need to be cleared medically to have any liposuction or cosmetic procedure. Just because someone has diabetes it doesn't mean they cannot proceed. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Diabetes and cosmetic surgery
Thank you for your question. I think it depends on how well-controlled your medical conditions are. Procedures such as liposuction that are relatively noninvasive (that is, very small incisions and can be performed without general anesthesia) can be done safely in patients with Type II diabetes. But, you have to be under tight blood sugar control, and demonstrate that over a period of time using the hemoglobin A1C measurements. If you require insulin, I would avoid any unnecessary surgery. If you are well-controlled by diet and oral medications, you may be a candidate. I'd meet with a local plastic surgeon for advice on your case. Best wishes.
