Liposuction 360 is a liposuction procedure around your waist area. It is one of the most sought-after fat removal procedures to give you an hourglass shape. This outpatient cosmetic surgery uses tumescent (under the skin) liposuction in 4 specific areas. The doctor removes subcutaneous fat from the abdomen, lower back, flanks (love handles), and waist.
The clinic has the latest equipment. The surgeon has been performing these procedures for many years using a series of different techniques from SmartLipo Triplex Laser, WaterLipo, and Vaser liposuction. This combination offers better results than traditional liposuction by minimizing discomfort and performing the surgery most quickly and safely.
Women concerned about their body shape and who want to remove excess fat are excellent candidates for 360-degree liposuction.
Mommy makeovers often include 360-degree lipo as part of a body contouring procedure.
If you have a large amount of visceral fat (intrabdominal fat around your internal organs), you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. You should be in good health and close to your ideal weight. This procedure is not a weight loss surgery. It is a body contouring procedure that helps redefine your body shape.
Wear loose clothing that is easy to remove and put on
Make sure you have organized transport to and from the clinic
You will be meeting with your surgeon to review your pre-op tests, discuss the procedure, and answer any last-minute questions you may have.
The cosmetic surgeon may choose to draw on your body the areas on which he will perform lipo.
You will receive mild sedation to make it a more pleasant experience.
Tumescent liposuction does not require general anesthesia, which allows you to talk to your surgeon during the whole procedure.
The surgeon will start with small incisions. He injects a combination of lidocaine, sodium bicarbonate, and epinephrine mixed in a Saline solution to numb the areas of your procedure.
The doctor will then insert a cannula to access the fat deposits:
Suppose you choose to have a fat transfer to other areas like the popular Brazilian butt lift. In that case, the fat cells will be extracted, cleaned, and immediately reinjected in your desired procedure area.
If you do not avail yourself of a fat transfer, the cannula has a laser fiber that liquefies the fat cells, and the suction pump will extract them. The body will expel the remaining tissue over time. The surgeon can utilize the SmartLipo Triplex laser during the surgery so he can achieve superior skin tightening. The body will create new collagen, and the skin will tighten a few weeks after the surgery.
As part of the surgery, the doctor may perform some liposculpture to give you precisely the look you want.
After your surgery, you will receive a follow-up appointment and contact info.
It is a good idea to have somebody stay with you or be in close contact the night after the surgery.
Most patients experience some discomfort after the fat removal procedure for a few days. The numbness or pain usually decreases after the second or third day. We recommend that you rest at least two days following the procedure. You will be wearing a compression garment that will help with the discomfort. Most patients can return to work in 3-4 days. You will have some drainage for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure, which is normal. The tiny incisions will heal and disappear in a few days.
A few days later, you will have a post-op check-up to see your progress.
Avoid any significant workout for at least three weeks.
Our patients are delighted with their liposuction procedures. It allows you to wear flattering clothing. From form-fitting dresses to beachwear, it makes you feel more confident about your appearance. It usually can decrease your waistline by 4-5 inches and create noticeable curves. There might be some loose skin after the procedure, but new collagen produced due to laser surgery will tighten your skin over time. It is then up to you to eat correctly and exercise to keep the new you in shape.
We highly recommend that you discuss a fat transfer procedure in conjunction with your liposuction surgery. Trendy cosmetic procedures include BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift), Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation, and gluteus augmentation.
The procedure costs vary depending on each patient. The price is based on 1) The patient’s size 2) The amount of fat. The procedure cost starts at $9,000.
Fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) or breast augmentation can also be added to this procedure for even greater body enhancing results.
Does having a prior C-Section matter?
A lot of our patients have had prior C-sections. We can make the C-section scar smoother and remove the fatty pouch that sometimes accumulates above the scar. It is not a contraindication for having Lipo 360.
Is there an age limit for this procedure?
Young and old patients alike can benefit from this procedure. If you are in good general health and don’t have any of the contraindications discussed above, you may qualify for this procedure. At Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic, your safety is our main concern, and we do everything pre-operatively to make sure you are an appropriate candidate.
What is the difference between Lipo 360 and a tummy tuck?
Both are considered cosmetic surgery. Lipo 360 is the removal of fat around your midsection. A Tummy tuck is the removal of fat and skin.
