What Is Lipo 360?

Lipo 360 is a surgical procedure that’s used to remove excess fat from around the midsection. The body-sculpting procedure is very similar to traditional liposuction, but there is one key difference: Liposuction typically targets one pocket of fat at a time, whereas Lipo 360 can target multiple areas simultaneously. Lipo 360 gets its name from the fact that it targets excess fat in a full 360-degree angle around the abdomen.

How Does Lipo 360 Work?

The way Lipo 360 works is quite similar to the way that standard liposuction works. At The Lind Institute of Plastic Surgery, we use VASER liposuction, which utilizes ultrasound waves to break up excess fat in your body. Once the fat cells have been loosened, they’re suctioned out using a narrow cannula.

Lipo 360 utilizes 360-degree, circumferential liposuction technology to target excess fat all around the midsection. This allows Dr. Lind to remove stubborn belly fat, love handles, and bulges to create a much slimmer abdomen.

Benefits of Lipo 360

Lipo 360 can provide several or all of the following benefits for patients looking to remove excess fat around the midsection:

  • Slimmer belly
  • Reduced love handles
  • Improved figure and body proportions
  • Removes “muffin tops” and bulges caused by excess belly fat
  • Increased self-esteem

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

The first step toward undergoing Lipo 360 will be having a consultation with Dr. Lind. During this consultation, he will ask you about your goals for the procedure as well as your medical history. 

When the surgery begins, you will most likely be given general anesthesia. However, in some cases, a combination of IV sedation and local anesthesia may be used. Next, Dr. Lind will make tiny incisions around the midsection where excess fat is being targeted. He will then use the chosen method of loosening the fat cells, which may involve ultrasound waves or injecting a tumescent solution. Finally, Dr. Lind will use a special surgical vacuum system to suction out the fat through a narrow cannula.

Once the excess fat has been removed all around the midsection, the incisions will be closed with sutures. In total, the procedure typically takes between one and four hours.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

You will be able to go home on the same day of your Lipo 360 procedure. You will need to wear a compression garment for about six weeks to prevent fluid from accumulating. It’s normal to experience swelling and bruising for the first few weeks after the surgery, and Dr. Lind will prescribe you pain medication. You should be able to return to light work within a few days and to normal work and exercise in three to six weeks.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Lipo 360?

Although you might see results within a week of undergoing Lipo 360, the full effects will become visible gradually. It may take several months for the swelling to disappear and the complete results to be evident.
