Is Lapex Laser Lipo safe for a person who is prone to blood clots?

I have a medical condition that causes blood clots to form. I take warfarin (Coumadin) to prevent them. Given my condition, is it okay to have Lapex Laser Lipo?

My guess is you will have to have clearance from the physician who prescribed the Coumadin. If the risks outweigh the benefits, he/she will not approve discontinuing the blood thinner. They physician who would be performing the procedure, will probably not do it while taking blood thinners. The chance of excessive bleeding is just too high.
