Lipo 360

The term “360-Degree Liposuction” describes conducting suction lipectomy (another name for liposuction) all the way around the waist. This targets removal of upper back or bra roll, lower back, anterior and posterior hip, mons pubis, and abdomen fat to achieve a more contoured waistline. This “Lipo 360” can thereby achieve a more sculpted waistline that also impacts the S-curve contour of the flank region of the body so that the lower hips and buttock appear fuller compared to the abdomen, love handles, and waistline. The procedure is a less-invasive option to achieve abdominal rejuvenation without the scar that is associated with an abdominoplasty or belt lipectomy. Lipo 360 may be readily combined with a buttock augmentation, Brazilian Butt Lift (or “BBL”), which uses the fat removed to increased buttock size, contour, and projection.

The best candidates for a 360-degree liposuction are patients that need some additional help removing residual fat after diet and exercise have fallen short in patients that are not ready to undergo an abdominoplasty, or do not have significant excess skin and soft tissue. In the right patient, a Lipo 360 can deliver:

  • Elimination of excess fat along the belt line
  • More hourglass contour of the trunk
  • Deceased prominence of the hips, saddle bags, abdomen, and mons pubic regions
  • Improved fit of clothing at the waist
  • Increased self-confidence

If you are interested in a Lipo 360, remember that this is a surgical procedure and you should expect some recovery time. 360-degree liposuction is usually performed by plastic and reconstructive surgeons. In good candidates, it can be performed as an outpatient in an ambulatory surgical center, though recovery time is often proportional to the amount of fat removed. Patients who undergo a 360-degree liposuction often experience an uplifted outlook and renewed motivation for further physical fitness and toning.
