I am 17 years old, am 5’7.5”, and weigh 147 lbs. My BMI is 22.7, meaning I am smack-bam in the middle of the healthy weight range, and I have no major illnesses or allergies. I am completely healthy, as far as I know. I eat well most of the time, with a high intake of vegetables and I consume no dairy. I do light exercise several times a week. However - I have a huge belly. To put this into perspective, my boobs are DD. If I relax my stomach, it sticks out further than my boobs. I kind of look like someone who is 4-5 months pregnant.. only, it’s all fat. And it is kind of shaped like a capital B. Like there are two pockets of fat, upper and lower, that stick out. I’ve had this belly for maybe 3 years. I did have Bulimia between the ages of 13-16, but was cured some time ago and as a result my body weight seems to have settled in all areas - except my belly. I feel like I’ve lost some weight in all areas except my belly. Would I be a suitable candidate for a liposuction in my belly area? I don’t want to loose any more weight in other areas of my body, because it is healthy and I like it, but I feel I would have to get extremely skinny to get rid of the belly. What can I do about this? I really would like to look into surgery.
