Can I combine a large volume liposuction and a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Q:

Can I combine a large volume liposuction and a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy?

A:

 David,

 

 My suggestion would be to wait on the liposuction until after the Lap. Sleeve Gastrectomy. You are highly likely to lose a significant amount of weight following this procedure. Once, your weight is stable for at least 6 months then, consider body contouring procedures like Liposuction. Best,
