Response from Dr. Henry

You dont provide any details regarding your HIV status, treatment history, other drugs/medical problems, family history and family fat distribution assessment that are important factors to consider. Lipodystrophy in setting of treated HIV infection can involve excess intraabdominal fat that is not very amendable to liposuction compared to subcutaneous fat so the exact location of the fat is important as is having your HIV specialist involved in the discussion.
