360 liposuction, or Lipo 360, has become a popular liposuction technique due to its comprehensive and natural-looking body-sculpting results. It is especially ideal for patients who want to get rid of excess body fat in their midsection. Downsize! Lipo Center provides awake 360 liposuction for Houston patients.
What Is 360 Liposuction?
People who cannot effectively lose their excess body fat with diet and exercise alone often consider traditional liposuction. While traditional liposuction can be quite effective, the drawback is that treating several areas can require multiple treatment sessions. This also means multiple consultations and multiple periods of downtime for recovery.
360 liposuction is the perfect solution for people who want to avoid the hassle by receiving comprehensive liposuction during a single session. While traditional liposuction focuses on a single specific area, Lipo 360 encompasses the entire midsection area, including the abdomen, waist, back, buttocks, and hips. 360 liposuction may also be combined with other procedures.
Ideal Candidates for 360 Liposuction
The best candidates for Lipo 360 are people who want to achieve complete and balanced body-shaping results. 360 liposuction is ideal for patients who cannot get rid of excess fat in several areas through diet and exercise alone.
Good candidates are healthy with no post-surgery healing issues. Candidates must not be pregnant or breastfeeding and must have realistic expectations.
During your consultation, we will listen to your goals and tell you how 360 liposuction can help you. We will perform a physical examination and evaluate your medical history. Based on our assessment and your goals, we will create the most suitable 360 liposuction procedure plan. We will discuss the treatment plan with you in detail and show you photos of your potential results.
We will explain the procedure, the recovery process, and preparation, and we can also give you a cost estimate. We will answer all your questions so you can confidently make your final decision. Finally, a date will be set for your 360 liposuction procedure.
The duration of a 360 liposuction procedure will depend on the midsection areas treated during the session. Our 360 liposuction procedure will not require an anesthesiologist. The patient will be awake throughout the treatment session; they will not experience any pain and will be fully comfortable.
Tiny incisions will be created in key areas, and then a thin tube called a cannula will be inserted. The fat cells will be loosened using the tip of the cannula, and medical suction will be used to remove them through the cannula.
After Your 360 Liposuction
After the procedure, the patient can go home. The recovery period is as fast as 48 hours; this is the benefit of awake liposuction. Aftercare instructions will be provided to the patient and must be carefully followed.
A degree of swelling and bruising may be present in the treatment areas. Ice packs can be used to reduce swelling, and a post-surgical garment must be worn for a time. Full results can be seen once all swelling has disappeared and the patient has completely recovered.
How Much Does 360 Liposuction Cost?
The cost of a 360 liposuction procedure will depend on the number of treatment areas involved and the exact techniques used. The amount of body fat extracted can also impact the total cost of the procedure. Since it is an awake liposuction procedure, the cost is lower compared to undergoing several separate sessions for the same treatment areas.
