The 12 areas of Lipo 360 vary depending on which surgeon you use. Nevertheless, most surgeons refer to the midsection when talking about lipo 360. This area includes the abdomen, flanks, hips, waist, and lower back. A specialist in lipo 360 can also treat the arms, neck, and chin, and legs using a 360 liposuction technique.

How Is 360 Lipo Different From Regular Liposuction?

Both regular liposuction and 360 lipo are body sculpting procedures. Both remove fat cells to achieve a more toned and slim physique. However, there are significant differences between the two types of lipo.

Traditional lipo focuses on just one area of a body part. Meanwhile, 360 lipo targets several regions of that body part simultaneously. Essentially, 360 lipo uses circumferential, 360-degree lipo to achieve a more efficient and comprehensive procedure.

The final outcome is the primary difference between 360 lipo and traditional lipo. Regular liposuction will only address the final fat volume the surgeon removes. 360 lipo addresses the body's final proportions.

Does 360 Lipo Produce Better Results Than Standard Lipo?

360 liposuction produces better results when compared with regular liposuction. That is because the surgeon treats the entire circumference of the body part. As a result, the treated area is slimmer, more toned, more proportionate, and more attractive. Traditional lipo doesn't have the patient's finished profile as its primary objective. 360 lipo is all about the patient's final proportions. The surgeon treats the full circumference of the area to remove the maximum amount of fat. This procedure ensures a more comprehensive result that is more sculpted and proportionate.

Do All Surgeons Offer 360 Degree Liposuction?

Not every cosmetic surgeon offers 360-degree liposuction. Surgeons who do the procedure typically only provide it on the body's midsection. In such cases, 360-lipo refers to the treatment of the abdomen, lower back, hips, and flanks. Only a specialist can offer 360 lipo of other areas of the body such as the legs or arms. Dr. Su at ArtLipo is a specialist offering a comprehensive range of 360-degree liposuction procedures. He treats the arms and legs in a circumferential manner to produce a very complete slimming outcome.

What Does 360 LipoOf The Arms Involve?

Dr. Su calls his 360 lipo of the arms treatment "The Celebrity Arms" procedure. It involves treating the entire circumference of the upper arm and shoulder. Standard arm liposuction only treats the underhang. Dr. Su treats the sides and top of the arm, too, as well as the shoulder area. He performs the Celebrity Arms procedure under local anesthetic, so the patient is alert and awake throughout. That allows him to use his active lipo technique. Active lipo involves the patient moving into different positions and tensing up their arm muscles through the surgery. Dr. Su can then see and feel the fat more easily. He can sculpt more closely to the arm muscles. That ensures he achieves very complete and beautiful results. The muscles of the arm are visible, and he removes up to 90% of excess fat.

What Does 360 LipoOf The Legs Involve?

Dr. Su also offers 360-degree liposuction of the legs. This treatment involves removing fat from the entire circumference of the leg. As a result, he achieves very complete and beautiful outcomes. He removes the maximum amount of fat and sculpts the leg to achieve an attractive shape.

Most cosmetic surgeons who treat the legs only address the thighs. Dr. Su not only treats the inner and outer thighs but also the knees, calves, and ankles too. He treats the full circumference of each area, sculpting the remaining fat to produce a contoured and slim silhouette. He also offers full leg liposuction. This treatment removes excess fat from the circumference of the thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.

Can All 12 Areas Be Treated At Once?

It isn't possible to treat all twelve areas in a single surgery. That would be too much to complete in a single procedure. Removing too much fat at one time is risky. Surgeons typically remove a maximum of five liters of fat during one surgery. Removing more than this volume may necessitate fluid replacement. It's unlikely, though, that all 12 areas require treatment.

Nevertheless, should you require it, it's possible to treat several areas simultaneously. For example, the complete upper arm, shoulder, and armpit area are treatable in one surgery. A surgeon can also treat the entire leg at one time.

A surgeon can advise about which areas require treatment and can suggest how many procedures are necessary. It's always wise, though, to choose a specialist in the liposuction field.
