I’m only 19 but I’m considering lipo on my thighs only because they rub against each other so much they hurt and burn. would lipo for my age be a bad thing?
I don’t smoke but try exercise a few days a week. I feel like lipo would help me in that area and suggestions?

    Inner Thigh Liposuction- Liposuction surgery can be done at a young age, however, it would be optimal to maximize a diet and exercise program first.

    I understand you are interested in liposuction surgery. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which excess fatty tissue is removed from a specific area of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, by means of suction. The estimated cost for one area of liposuction is approximately $5,200. These fees are all inclusive – surgeon fees, garments, facility fee, anesthesia fee and all pre- and post- visits. I would encourage you to go the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and locate a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. There may be other procedures that are less invasive that you may be a candidate for. The best place to start is by scheduling a consult with a surgeon to determine what is right for you. If you are ever in Oregon I’d be happy to see you!
