Is Liposuction Safe for Type 1Diabetics?

Is liposuction safe for type 1 diabetics? Are there increased risks involved for patients who suffer from diabetes? These questions are frequently asked by diabetic patients.Undergoing surgery is dangerous if a person is diabetic and has high sugar levels, but the good news is that liposuction can be done on diabetics following good care and monitoring of the blood sugar level.

Diabetics are at increased risk of infection and wound healing complications. There is no way to quantify this risk. Clearly, tight control of your diabetes in the per-operative period is essential. With good management of your diabetes, you should be able to lower the risk of complications while undergoing liposuction of a limited area. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon and endocrinologist.

Fortunately, these complications are rare, and a diabetic patient can certainly be an excellent candidate for liposuction. It is important to recognize that liposuction will help to remove excess fat and improve contours in various areas of the body, but it does not affect the physiological issues associated with diabetes.

Interestingly, I have found that many of my patients with weight problems have used liposuction as an impetus for behavior modification, including diet and exercise routines that provide long-term results. If for no other reason, work with your doctor to get your diabetes well controlled so you can minimize the complications associated with your condition.
