Vaserlipo Before Ending 6 Weeks Pregnancy

i've decided to get vaserlipo in the philippines a month ago and even put in a downpayment. however i found out recently that i was 6 weeks pregnant. i know i'm not ready to have a baby yet and since it's illegal in the philippines, i have to wait to get back to my country to end the pregnancy. i still have 2 weeks til i get back. is it possible to still get vaserlipo of my whole abdomen and inner thighs before ending the pregnancy?

Ending a pregnancy or keeping a pregnancy is a big decision to make so I recommend you discuss this with your doctor, and other people whose opinion you value.  Risks are present keeping or ending your pregnancy.  We would prefer you wait until the pregnancy status is resolved before undergoing an elective procedure.

Do NOT have elective surgery while pregnant

Hi there-

You should allow for definitive resolution (both physical and emotional if necessary) of your unwanted pregnancy before proceeding with elective surgery, if for no other reason than because it may affect your outcome.

Liposuction should not be done at the same time as being pregnant.  You have to wait until you resolve your issues with the pregnancy.
