Type 2 diabetes and hypothyroidism are not contraindications to liposuction of any type. Be sure to bring your complete medical history to your consultation, and your plastic surgeon will explain if you should anticipate any unusual risks from these conditions.

The simple answer is that those two conditions are not disqualifying for Smartlipo.

Diabetes or thyroid disease are not contraindications alone for liposuction. You need to check with your doctor for medical clearance prior to the procedure to make sure you are stable for surgery.
