American Society of Plastic Surgeons, aka ASPS, is the society that involves the business relations of all the plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This organization aims to govern plastic surgeons’ business with the terms and codes approved by the supreme head of the community. Prices, patient qualifications, etc are determined by this society and surgeons are expected to obey these declarations. The community also determines the most suitable age range for certain surgeries. Our post includes detailed information about the minimum age for liposuction procedures designated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Liposuction is considered the most performed plastic surgery procedure in the world after rhinoplasty and breast-lift procedures. Because of the growing numbers of overweight and obese people, the annual number of liposuction procedures performed has also increased. Liposuction surgery is generally safe but patients are not recommended to exceed a certain limit that involves the suck-out of 2-3 liters fat.
According to the data shared by ASPS, people ranging from 30-39 are the biggest group that prefer liposuction procedures. Liposuction recommendation is generally based on the patient’s overall health status, not age. If the individual is over 18 and below 50 ( common range ), the person is considered suitable for such procedures.
However, if the person has some diseases like diabetes, liposuction procedures must be avoided. Some people may have a weaker immune system which they can feel the weakness during every type of disease. Such people should also avoid getting these procedures because of possible health issues.
If the person’s body hasn’t finished its growth yet, the liposuction is not suggested. Just like in every aspect of surgical procedures, if the tissue, organ, etc is still growing, the doctors don’t suggest any surgical operations on them. Liposuction could be dangerous if the patient doesn’t meet some of these qualifications and may even face death.
