The ideal age varies from person to person. Rather than a specific age, it’s more important that you are in good health, and have realistic expectations.
Are there age-related complications?
Your age can influence the risk of complications. Older patients might have different considerations, such as skin elasticity, medical history, and overall health. Your surgeon at Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics will take these factors into account to reduce the risk of complications.
How long does it take to recover from liposuction or a Brazilian Butt lift procedure?
The recovery period for liposuction and BBL surgery usually requires about a week of downtime, with your full results seen after six months. While some patients may resume regular activities sooner, it’s very important to follow your post-operative care instructions for a smooth and safe recovery.

Is it ever too late to get liposuction?
It’s rarely too late to consider liposuction and BBL surgery. The most crucial factors are your overall health and the experience of your surgeon performing these types of procedures. They will help determine if these procedures are a safe and beneficial option for you.
Your age can be a factor but not a definitive restriction when considering liposuction and BBL surgery. The decision should be based on your individual health, skin condition, and aesthetic goals. Consulting with an experienced surgeon is the first step in understanding how these procedures can benefit you. Remember, your well-being and safety should always be the top priority.
