Can a 51 year Old Female Get Liposuction?

I am 51 years old and I'm interested in getting rid of my belly fat. Is it ok for me to get liposuction or am I too old?

Liposuction is a body-contouring procedure that removes fat under the skin to address trouble spots throughout the body. The overall success of the procedure depends on the skin retracting back after the fat is removed. This is less likely to occur the longer the skin has been stretched out and the older the patient is.

Yes, liposuction should be possible for you.  You should consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for a complete evaluation of your health and your eligibility for liposuction.  Be aware, liposuction can only remove the fat that you can pinch -- it cannot remove fat that is within the abdominal cavity.  Also be aware that everything depends upon the elasticity of your skin.  Sometimes, if the elasticity is diminished, liposuction can be performed but some skin laxity could remain, which might require tightening.
