Mommy Makeover - With Diabetes?
Thank you for your question. Diabetic patients can successfully undergo mommy makeover surgery. The risks are slightly higher, but can be managed by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Your blood sugar needs to be well controlled in the peri-operative period so your primary care physician will need to be involved. Hope this helps and good luck with your surgery.
Diabetics can have elective cosmetic procedures, provided their blood sugars are under control
insulin-dependent diabetics don't run a higher risk of the average population for most cosmetic procedures. This is assuming that their blood sugars are well controlled. As you know diabetes interferes with blood supply to the skin as well as wound healing. Consult with your physician. You may need a medical clearance from your regular family doctor

Can you tell me if a diabetic person can have a mommy makeover or a tummy tuck?
It is possible for a diabetic patient to have a mommy makeover or tummy tuck. However, the patient would need to have their diabetes under good control and not have other significant health problems. Be certain to discuss this with both your primary physician and your surgeon. Make sure they have had a chance to communicate with each other regarding your health history, medications and your proposed surgery. If either doctor has concerns about your proceeding, then follow their advice and avoid the surgery. Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.
