360 Liposuction

What is 360 Liposuction?

360 Liposuction, often referred to as full body liposuction, is an advanced body contouring procedure that targets multiple areas of the body to achieve a more harmonized and curvaceous silhouette. This procedure addresses fat deposits around the entire circumference of the midsection, allowing for a more comprehensive sculpting of the abdomen, flanks, lower back, and sometimes even the thighs.

Liposuction Real Results

Types of 360 Liposuction:

Traditional 360 Liposuction:

This is the basic way where a thin tube sucks out fat from around the waist area, covering the belly, sides, and sometimes the back. It’s great for people who want an all-around slimmer look.

Laser-Assisted 360 Liposuction (SmartLipo):

This method uses laser beams to melt the fat before taking it out. The heat from the laser can also help tighten the skin, so it’s a good choice for those who want both slimming and skin firming.

Ultrasonic-Assisted 360 Liposuction (VASER Lipo):

Here, sound waves are used to shake and loosen the fat, making it easier to remove. This is especially good for getting out stubborn fat or for those looking for more defined shapes.

Power-Assisted 360 Liposuction (PAL)

This technique uses a machine-powered tool that moves quickly to help break up and remove the fat. It’s for those who want faster results or have a lot of fat they want gone.
All these methods aim to make the waist area look better from every angle. Which one to pick depends on what you want, your surgeon’s advice, and the tools they have at their clinic.

360 Liposuction combined with a tummy tuck is like getting a complete makeover for your waistline. It removes stubborn fat from all sides and also tightens any loose skin. This combination tackles issues from weight changes or post-childbirth bodies, giving a more toned look. It’s like two-for-one: better shape and less saggy skin.

How It’s Done

The procedure begins with the surgeon making tiny incisions around the treatment area. A tumescent solution is typically injected to reduce bleeding and ease the removal of fat cells. The chosen liposuction technique (traditional, laser-assisted, or ultrasound-assisted) is then utilized to break down and extract the fat. Given the 360-degree approach, the surgeon methodically works around the entire midsection, ensuring symmetrical and natural-looking results. Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed, and the area is bandaged.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates for 360 liposuction are individuals who:

  • Are seeking more pronounced and holistic contouring results than traditional liposuction.
  • Have localized fat deposits around their midsection that haven’t responded well to diet and exercise.
  • Are in good overall health and have a stable weight. 
  • Possess realistic expectations about the outcomes.

Breast Revision Recovery and What to Expect

Immediate Post-Surgery

Upon concluding the 360 Liposuction, patients may feel some drowsiness from the anesthesia. Some discomfort, swelling, and mild pain are usual, but these can be effectively managed with medications prescribed by the surgeon.

Support Garments:

Patients will be instructed to wear compression garments around the treated areas. These play a pivotal role in reducing swelling, offering support to the contoured regions, and optimizing the final appearance.

Activity Guidelines:

For about 2-3 weeks post-procedure, patients are advised against engaging in strenuous activities or lifting heavy weights. This period of caution ensures uninterrupted healing and optimal tissue recovery.

Incision Care:

The sites of liposuction require diligent care. Clear guidelines, encompassing cleanliness standards and the use of specific products, will be furnished to bolster the healing trajectory.

Swelling and Bruising:

Swelling and bruising are anticipated reactions post-surgery. Typically, they peak within the initial week and then progressively diminish. Employing measures like cold compresses and occasional limb elevation can alleviate these symptoms.

Sensation Alterations:

Post-liposuction, patients might experience temporary numbness or changes in sensation in the treated areas. These alterations usually revert to normal over a few weeks to months.

Regular Check-ins:

Sequential follow-up appointments will be organized to gauge the healing progression. These sessions are instrumental in ensuring recovery is on the right path and addressing any concerns that may arise.


Liposuction incisions are typically small, resulting in minimal scarring. With time and appropriate care, these scars tend to fade and become less conspicuous. Detailed scar management advice will be provided.

Final Results:

While an immediate difference in body contour can be discerned after the surgery, the definitive and polished results manifest once all the swelling recedes and the body adapts to its new shape. This realization may span a few months.
