So Many Questions

I’m a young girl who has always been a little heavy weight. Over the past few years in particular I’ve been gaining a lot of weight I tried exercising dieting everything and nothing is working, so I was wondering for 200+ pound girl how would liposuction look how long it would take and how much would it cost?

Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment. Based on your information, you should start with your primary care doctor to determine if there is a medical reason for your weight gain and then work on a medically supervised weight loss plan.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. I would favor speaking with your general medical doctor to find less invasive methods of weight loss since you are very young. Establishing good dietary and exercise habits now will provide you with a healthy long-term life. Hope this helps.

Hello and thank you for your question.

I agree with the other answers and would recommend visiting your primary care doctor to evaluate before considering cosmetic surgery. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. I hope this helps to start your journey and best of luck!

Liposuction is a form of body contouring to improve shape and not a form of weight loss. Best advice is to obtain an evaluation by your pcp to determine why you are gaining and not able to lose weight.
