How old do you have to be to undergo surgery

You are young, afflicted by lipedema and you don’t know how old you have to be to undergo surgery ? Don’t panic and let’s review the facts together. 

In most cases, even though they can also appear during pregnancy or menopause, lipedema symptoms start during puberty. 

These symptoms can strongly affect your physical health. They can translate into chronic, sometimes debilitating pain, from the very moment they appear, not matter how old you are. 

Its mental impact should not be underestimated either. During a transition period as delicate as adolescence, its effects can be devastating ! They can lead to a loss of self-esteem, severe complexes, eating disorders or even depressions.

Your symptoms can be significantly alleviated by surgery. It can be even more efficient if the procedure is done at early stage of development, when the overall volume to drain remains relatively low. It is therefore important to establish a diagnosis as early as possible – which means the operation can be considered at any age ! 

If you are a teenager suffering from this condition, it is perfectly normal to wish to alleviate your symptoms through surgery. Even better, it is recommended, as the results tend to be more effective, considerably slowing the development of the lipedema. So, how old do you have to be to undergo surgery ? The answer is that no minimum age is required, as long as you got a real diagnosis.
