If the liposuction is recommended by your diabetes care team, I think
the NHS will have a hard time refusing. Breast reductions can be
covered in some circumstances, for example.
In terms of cannula length, I'm sure you can discuss with the surgeon
how much subcutaneous fat will be available after the procedure, and
whether/when you can continue to use the sites where the tissue has
been suctioned from. If I were you, I'd also ask if during the healing
process you might be advised to use the backs of your arms or your
'love handles' instead of your abdomen. Liposuction is a surgical
procedure that requires aftercare and healing time, like all
