Is It True That After the Age of 20, if You Had Lipo Before, You Will Start Having Noticeable Scaring from Lipo?

You are not a bad candidate for liposuction because of your age.
Your age of 19 does not put you at greater risk for liposuction. If you are a good candidate for the procedure a skilled liposuction specialist should be able to perform liposuction for you without an increased risk.

Scars after liposuction
If liposuction is done smoothly then scars or dents are uncommon as there is a layer of fat left to cushion the skin. Visible irregularities can occur at any age and to avoid problems search out a board certified plastic surgeon.

Scarring from liposuction is almost unheard of.
Your friend is feeding you a bowl of hogwash. Liposuction does form scar tissue under the skin like any surgery would but it doesn't form enough that you would even see or feel it yourself in most cases. The beauty of liposuction is that it gives good results with minimal risks and is easy to undergo. Sincerely,

Thank you for the question.
I am not aware of what phenomenon your friend is warning you about. It would probably be in your best interest to seek consultation with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the pros/cons of liposuction surgery for you.
