I’m 17 and I want Liposuction . I’m 165 cm and 97 kg.
A: I’m sorry to hear you are distressed by your physical appearance. Unfortunately, I don’t think liposuction is a great solution for your concerns at this time. The last thing I want to do is hurt your feelings or leave you feeling even worse about your body, but as a physician it is my responsibility to be honest. First off, liposuction is not a weight loss tool. The maximum volume of fat (and fluid) that we remove in the US is 5000 ml. Most of the time that results in minimal, if any, weight loss. Based on my calculations, you are 5’5″ and weigh 213 lbs giving you a body mass index of 35.6. You need to lose weight first. I recognize how difficult this is. Exercising is a great first start, now you need to address your food intake. You may need to visit your doctor or a nutritionist to determine your options for weight loss.
