What Happens If I Get Pregnant After Liposuction? Is It Safe For Me And My Child?


Several women have a concern before opting for liposuction that the results may have a negative impact on their future pregnancies. Due to hormonal changes, women experience drastic bodily changes such as excess fat deposition and loose skin after pregnancy. In case anyone is wondering is it safe for the baby or not, then let’s clarify this first. Liposuction doesn’t cause any effect on the reproductive system which means in other words, the baby remains safe. Moreover, the results of the liposuction also remain the same regardless of weight gain. 

Can I Get Pregnant After Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure which means it does not affect fertility in women in any way whatsoever. It is a surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis under the influence of general anesthesia. It targets removing small pockets of stubborn fat that get stored in the body to enhance the overall contour of the body. It does not possess any risk to the reproductive organs of a woman. It is important to note here that it is not a conception barrier which means it can stop someone from conceiving. 

What Happens If I Get Pregnant After Liposuction?

Basically, there is no major change in women who get pregnant after liposuction. They can put on weight but if they again lose weight post-delivery, they can experience the same results of the liposuction they underwent. In these women, it may seem as if they have not gone through any bodily changes during the entire period of pregnancy. Several women are able to lose fat easily once the baby is born in the first year itself. 

However, each and every body is different. Hence, it is possible that some women may have difficulty in losing weight in terms of the location of fat deposition and the designated stage at which they are going to lose weight. This primarily depends on hormonal changes, breastfeeding, diet and amount of exercise done. 

Fortunately, it is not possible to gain weight in places where it has been treated with liposuction. The explanation for the same is that this cosmetic surgery removes fat cells from particular areas permanently. For instance, women who have undergone liposuction around the arms and chin before the pregnancy, cannot experience weight gain in these areas as the procedure has eliminated fat cells from these areas permanently. 

In other words, even if there is mild weight gain, the results of body enhancement are likely to remain affected after pregnancy. There is no change in the shape of the body. But the trick lies here that in case the mother gains excessive weight it can get stored in other parts of the body. For example, the fat cells can get accumulated in the buttocks, arms or thighs if the liposuction is performed around the abdomen. 

Women often undergo breast reduction via liposuction. Hence, these women also have a concern that after liposuction, they may not be able to breastfeed their baby. They’ll be relieved to know that liposuction doesn’t damage the milk ducts or breast tissue hence, they will breastfeed their baby without any complications. In case any woman is unable to breastfeed, it is primarily due to low milk production or psychological factors.

Can I Get Liposuction After Pregnancy To Tighten The Loosen Skin?

Absolutely.  In fact, doctors recommend women to wait for their final pregnancy before undergoing liposuction. Women who carry bigger babies than the large one or gain a large amount of weight, have a hard time losing the same amount of weight. Therefore, liposuction in Delhi or  other metro cities is the most appropriate option for them. There are several clinics in Delhi where women can choose to undergo liposuction treatment to get rid of fat fast. 

Although there is no set waiting period for undergoing liposuction after pregnancy, doctors recommend waiting until the new mother feels absolutely normal. This is because the newborn requires extensive care which can drain the mother’s energy, physically and emotionally. Going for liposuction treatment during such a crucial period can make the mother feel burdened. 

What is a Mummy Makeover?

‘A Mummy Makeover’ is a  simple term that refers to a combination of several plastic surgical techniques that aims to enhance the body contour by improving the physical changes that occur during the entire pregnancy. This has emerged as one of the preferred cosmetic surgeries in India recently because the components of the procedure are customized according to the woman’s needs.

During pregnancy, breasts and abdomen are the two primary areas where drastic changes occur. Hence, the makeover generally involves the enhancement of shape particularly, in these areas. The abdominal muscles and tissues stretch during the entire pregnancy for the growing fetus. On the other hand, the breasts enlarge with the cup size increasing. Once the baby is born, these tissues lose their elasticity and do not bounce back to their original state. Therefore, women choose for procedures such as breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction along with liposuction. 


Going through multiple pregnancies can result in the accumulation of stubborn fat in the abdomen of women. Pregnant women tend to have stretch marks, sagging skin in the buttocks, breasts, abdomen and thigh that can be tightened with liposuction. Liposuction enhances the overall aesthetics of women hence, it doesn’t have any impact on a pregnant woman nor her baby. After three months of the procedure, most patients are likely to experience the results.
