I've had type1 for 7 years. I am interested in having a mommy makeover and possibly hip implants. Any good chance of recovery?

MM for a diabetic
Type 1 diabetes and surgery
- Yes - if your diabetes is well controlled - with normal glucose levels and A1C levels.
- Your plastic surgeon will probably want your regular doctor to clear your for surgery.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Type 1 Diabetes?
I assume you mean type one diabetes. Short answer is yes- with well controlled diabetes, a mommy makeover is certainly safe and possible. I have performed MM on several type 1 patients both with insulin pumps and without- and with careful monitoring in a hospital setting they have all done extremely well.
Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon for your rejuvenation.
I hope this helps
