Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps people to reshape their bodies by removing unwanted fat from certain areas. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are certain age requirements that must be met in order to be eligible for the procedure. Dr. Marcos Gonazlez provides liposuction to patients in El Paso, TX and surrounding areas.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat from specific areas of the body. It is most commonly used to remove fat from the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, arms, neck, and chin. The procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the fat removal.
During the procedure, small incisions are made in the area to be treated. A cannula is then inserted into the incision and used to suction the fat out of the area. After the fat has been removed, the incisions are closed and a compression garment is worn to help reduce swelling and promote healing.
Liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and should not be used as such. It is best suited for those already at or near their goal weight but looking to improve their body contour.
The minimum age requirement for liposuction varies from 18 to 21 years old, depending on your location and the surgeon’s accepted candidacy for the procedure. In addition to the minimum age requirement, there are also certain health requirements that must be met in order to be eligible for the procedure. Generally, you must be in good health and have no underlying medical conditions that would put you at risk for complications. Your doctor will also likely perform a physical exam and take a medical history to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Although the minimum age requirement for liposuction is 18, there are certain cases in which younger patients may be eligible. These include instances where the patient is overweight and has a body mass index (BMI) over 30, or if the patient is suffering from medical conditions such as gynecomastia or lipomas. In these cases, the doctor may recommend liposuction as a treatment option.
Other Candidacy Factors
You must also have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and should not be used as such.
It is also essential to have good skin tone and elasticity. This will help to ensure that your skin is able to contract and reshape after the procedure. If you have poor skin tone and elasticity, you may not be a good candidate for liposuction.
