Liposuction: Q&AAsk a Question
Skin Not Suitable for Liposuction?
I just got back from seeing my cosmetic surgeon. I live in the UK, I am 27, 5ft 7, weigh 12 st 4 pounds. I cycle 14 miles a day and eat healthily. I am on HRT for removed ovaries in 2004. My thighs have always been big and bothered me. I paid £100 to see a surgeon today. He looked at my legs for 5 seconds and said no, I am not suitable for Liposuction because my skin is not elastic enough and wil result in baggy skin post op and looking worse. He said my big legs are hereditary and would not agree to perform Lipo on me. Does this sound reasonable?
He may be right, but we can't know without photos
Your surgeon may be very honest
Maybe--but you can get another opinion.
