At this age, it's better to try exercising and dieting to target fat deposits, since the body is more responsive than when you get older.

Thank you for your question. We like to have them wait longer to consider this procedure. Some lifestyle changes are better options at this age. I hope this helps.

     If you are a good candidate for liposuction and are healthy, liposuction is generally a well tolerated procedure.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
