If you are at or close to ideal weight, have localized excess fatty tissues, and have good overlying skin tone, you are a good candidate to see an abps-certified plastic surgeon experienced in the various liposuction techniques that might be appropriate for you. Liposuction is not a weight-loss technique.

Liposuction is almost more of a tool as it an be used in many different procedures such as face lifts, tummy tucks (witch hazel) or nearly any lift or reduction. I have used this in 14 year olds for u literal breast overgrowth to minimize scarring and achieve some immediate results while awaiting completion of breast growth. The ideal candidate is at their ideal body weight with localized fatty deposits.

There is no limit, this is a technique that needs to be applied for the right indication.

Generally speaking, the “ideal” candidate for liposuction surgery is a healthy person with localized diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue with good quality overlying skin elasticity. Liposuctioning can be used as a “tool” as part of a variety of facial and/or body contouring surgery.
