Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and pleased to answer your query.
Liposuction and fat transfer does not cause diarrhea.
It could be due to other causes. Infection is one likely cause.

Get a complete blood count and stool test done for analysis.
Take probiotic supplements and yogurt for relief. If the test reports are suggestive of infection, you may require a course of antibiotics.

I hope that answers your question.
