Pregnancy and childbirth possible after liposuction?

To answer the question, we need to have a basic understanding of the method.

Specifically, abdomen liposuction is a method of liquefying hard fat tissue (the excess layer of fat below your skin) – then doctors will drain it out from your body through a cannula. The procedure when done properly shouldn’t affect the reproductive system at all.

You only need to consider your overall health condition after the procedure since there will be a recovery period after.


If you choose a reputable and quality cosmetic facility, you will not have to worry that the liposuction procedure will affect your motherhood.


1. Health condition

Regardless of whether you are planning on pregnancy or not, before undergoing abdomen liposuction, your health condition is the determining factor in whether you are eligible to have liposuction or not. The preliminary test result can also give you a clear idea on if your reproductive health is in a good condition. If your health is not guaranteed for a successful procedure and it can equates to exhaustion and complications later down the line as you’re carrying to term which will more or less affect your and your babies health.

Normally, through examination, testing, medical history check, etc., you can undergo abdomen liposuction if you:

– Are not being afflicted with or at risk of conditions and diseases causing abnormal blood pressure and heart problems

– Are not being afflicted with or at risk of hemophilia or diabetes.

– Are not dependant to stimulants, alcohol, tobacco and various drugs

– Are sound of mind and fully conscious.

– Are not currently pregnant, menstruating, or breastfeeding.

2. Liposuction methods

Liposuction is a wide term referring to a multitudes of different methods. These can be Lipo Ultrasound, Lipomatic, Vaser Lipo…

Generally speaking, older methods are more prone to collateral damages to surrounding tissue and can increase the risk of complication and may affect your reproductive health.

The Lipo Ultrasound is the method most modern that involves liquefying excess fat using focused ultrasound wavelengths. Then the excess fat will be removed from the body through a small incision at about 0.5cm – customers need not worry about bad scars, downtime, or exhaustion.

So consider choosing a method that is more modern if you’re considering pregnancy in the future after the procedure.

If you plan on having kids, when is the best time after liposuction?

You can be pregnant and carry to term fully and normally without any problems after abdomen liposuction. However, You must consider the right time to ensure your complete health recovery before planning your pregnancy.

If you get pregnant too soon after undergoing liposuction, it can be very dangerous. This not only affects the mother’s health but also the fetus

In addition, the abdomen that has just undergone liposuction is not stable, so if you are pregnant, it will most likely cause an infection.

According to Dr. Park Sung Yong: “Women should not undergo pregnancy immediately after having abdomen liposuction, because drugs such as anesthetics or pain relievers will have certain effects that can lead to complications or unwanted risks.”

Ideally, one should wait about 6-8 months after having liposuction before undergoing pregnancy.
