The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has a warning for teens, do not get liposuction or a tummy tuck to battle childhood obesity.
Studies have shown liposuction does not provide the same benefits as diet and exercise.
Plastic surgeons say ideal liposuction candidates are adults who have reached physical maturity, and are close to, or at, their ideal body weight.
Right now, only 2% of all US plastic surgeons perform procedures on teens.
The most common request is nose reshaping.
