: Liposuction Forum - What About Liposuction at 18 Years Old?

DrBermant what do you think about liposuccion at 18 years old ? Thanks

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Liposuction is a common tool of contouring in Plastic Surgery. Age appropriateness depends on the problem to be treated. When dealing with Gynecomastia, How Old Before Surgery? (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/teenage_plastic_surgery/gynecomastia_how_old.html) is a common question. That link shows many younger men before and after surgery where liposuction was a critical component. In that case, the liposuction was important and valuable.

When dealing with other problems, it depends on individual factors. As discussed in this forum post Liposuction Not Alternative for Global Fat Issues (http://www.abodybeautiful.com/forum/index.php?topic=200.0). On other individuals it can depend how their body is maturing. Hormones do influence the body contour and working on a stable problem is better than something that is still evolving.

You are welcome to join our discussion to express your concerns and show what is bothering you.

Hope this helps,
