    As long as you are medically stable and approved for surgery by your primary care physician, liposuction of the torso can be performed if indicated by an examination.

    as long as your kidney function is normal and there are no hernias on your torso, if that is the area you desire treated, it can be done. You would nee dot get a medical clearance from your nephrologist prior to having the anesthesia too.

    Hi and thanks for your question. Liposuction is an extremely safe procedure when performed by a well trained and competent surgeon. Make sure you see a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Your surgeon will consult with your renal specialist to make sure it is safe to undergo liposuction.
