Am I too young for liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular surgery procedure that removes unwanted body fat. The most commonly treated areas are the hips, thighs, tummy and buttocks – all places where fatty deposits tend to collect and which are stubbornly resistant to being exercised away. In the right hands, liposuction – or liposculpture – can produce some very pleasing contours and is an enduringly popular procedure. Mr Sudip Ghosh has many enquiries at his Milton Keynes clinic from both men and women of all ages and a question often asked is ‘am I old enough?’ Here are four questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do you understand what is involved? Most cosmetic surgeons will perform liposuction on an 18-year-old if they are convinced that the patient is emotionally mature enough and has all the facts to hand in order to make an informed, confident decision.
  2. Is this your decision? During your Milton Keynes liposuction consultation with Mr Sudip Ghosh, you will discuss your motivations for seeking this kind of surgery and your expectations, too. In Mr Ghosh’s view, it is imperative that before embarking on cosmetic surgery, a patient must feel happy with their decision and be realistic about the limitations of surgery.
  3. Have you tried alternative means? While liposuction is an effective way of eradicating those stubborn pockets of fat – and produces good results in young skin – it needs to be used when conventional methods of diet and exercise have not proved successful. It should not be the first port of call.
  4. Are you in the best hands? Performing liposuction requires skill and experience so make sure you are in the care of a highly trained cosmetic surgeon. Furthermore, it is a big decision and one into which a reputable surgeon will ensure you are not hurried, giving you the space instead to consider all your options and decide if this is indeed the right time for you.
