Question: Should/could I get liposuction if I'm only 19 and not obese?

 yay - Tue Apr 21, 2009 3:21 pm

I'm 19, 5'2'' and 125lbs. My mom had weight problems and had gastric bypass surgery and liposuction a few years ago after years of weight problems. I've always hated my body and tried to lose weight by not eating, at one point getting down to 95lbs. As I get older/busier I'm finding it harder to keep weight off and I know it's only going to get harder as the years go by. Yesterday I realized that as long as I look how I look I am going to be unhappy, but I'm at the point in my life where I have bigger and better things that I want to focus on. At my age/weight, would I possibly be eligible for liposuction or not?

User avatar Hi,
Certainly i would dissuade you from undergoing liposuction as of now.
