What Is 360 Liposuction?

Three hundred sixty degree liposuction is a term used to describe liposuction that treats the entire circumference of the body. It commonly describes liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and back. However, surgeons can use 360 techniques on many areas of the body. A specialist cosmetic surgeon can treat both the arms and legs with 360 liposuction.

How Is 360 Liposuction Different From Regular Liposuction?

360 liposuction is different from regular liposuction in one distinct way. Standard liposuction treats just one area of the body. For example, in the case of stomach liposuction, it treats only the abdomen. Three hundred sixty degree liposuction, on the other hand, treats the whole circumference of the body in that area. So, rather than only treating the stomach, the flanks and back are treated simultaneously. The result is a more proportionate outcome. The slimming effect is noticeable around the whole body rather than only being concentrated in one section.

Do All Surgeons Offer 360 Liposuction?

Not every cosmetic surgeon offers 360 liposuction to their patients. Many still only offer standard lipo treatments. Those surgeons who do offer 360 lipo treatments usually only provide them to the traditional midsection of the body. Dr. Su at ArtLipo takes a different approach. He provides 360 lipo of the arms and legs too. That sets him apart from the crowd. When treating the arms, he not only removes fat from the underhang but also from the sides, top, and shoulder. When treating the legs, he treats the entire circumference of the calf, ankle, knees, or thighs. As a result, he achieves extremely complete and attractive outcomes for his patients.

What Is The Benefit Of 360 Liposuction?

Three hundred sixty degree liposuction produces results on your body that is far more impressive. There are several reasons 360 lipo is so amazing. Traditional lipo addresses only the total volume of fat removed. Meanwhile, 360 lipo focuses on the body’s final proportions. It allows you to achieve a more attractive and toned silhouette in a single procedure, thanks to the comprehensive approach. Three hundred sixty degree lipo also involves the reshaping and recontouring of the remaining areas of fat into a more attractive shape. Although the approach is comprehensive, the recovery time is the same as that for regular lipo. There is minimal downtime, and within a couple of weeks, patients can return to work.

Who Is A Good Candidate For 360 Lipo?

If you are a good candidate for standard liposuction, you will also be a good candidate for 360 liposuction. There are several criteria that you should meet to receive maximum benefit from this procedure. If the following apply to you, you could benefit from 360 lipo:

  • You are close to or at your ideal body weight.
  • You have good skin elasticity.
  • You have pockets of fat all around the area you want the surgeon to treat.
  • You have reasonable expectations of the outcome.
  • You are prepared to follow the surgeon’s advice both before and after surgery.
  • You are in good overall health.
  • You are a non-smoker and non-vaper (or be prepared to quit for some time before and after surgery).

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for 360 liposuction is to arrange a consultation. If you book an appointment with Dr. Su at ArtLipo, he can advise you about your suitability for the surgery.

Is 360 Lipo A Weight Loss Procedure?

You need to know that 360 lipo is more comprehensive and treats more areas at once than regular liposuction. Nevertheless, it isn’t a weight-loss procedure. Like standard liposuction, 360 lipo is only suitable for patients who are near or at their perfect weight. Any form of lipo is a contouring procedure. It helps patients who have small areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Your surgeon will not treat you with liposuction if you are too overweight. You will need to lose some weight and maintain that weight loss first before undergoing surgery.

Where Can I Get 360 Liposuction?

Not every cosmetic surgeon performs 360 liposuction. Those who do will usually only treat the midsection of the body. That’s why you need to find a specialist in the field if you wish to treat other areas. Finding a surgeon to treat your arms or legs in this manner can be challenging.

However, Dr. Su at ArtLipo in Tampa can assist. He is highly skilled, and an experienced cosmetic surgeon who pioneers many outstanding techniques. His 360-liposuction treatments produce impressive results for countless patients every year. Not only does he treat the abdomen, flanks, and back, but he also treats the legs and arms. You can see before and after images of his patients in the ArtLipo photo gallery. If you arrange a consultation with Dr. Su, he can determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. He can also help you to achieve the complete slimming effect that you desire.
