OVERVIEW: WHAT IS LIPO 360?
Liposuction 360, colloquially called lipo 360, uses traditional liposuction across the abdomen, waist, love handles, and lower back to enhance the contours of the body. Nearly anyone who can benefit from liposuction of the stomach could likely benefit from liposuction 360. It gets its name because it treats 360 degrees of the body.
Choosing 360-degree liposuction instead of only abdomen liposuction can improve the results. Patients who carry extra weight in the abdomen may have small pockets of extra fat in the love handles and back. Only removing the excess fat in the abdomen will still leave behind fat pockets in the back and hips. Consequently, this can affect the overall body contour.
Each Sarasota liposuction procedure that Dr. Sessa performs is fully customized to fit the patient and their goals. Liposuction 360 also complements many other cosmetic and body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck and breast augmentation.
The actual body areas that liposuction 360 will target can vary from person to person based on their unique anatomy. For instance, some patients may carry more weight in the love handles versus their back. Therefore, the procedure may feature different areas for each patient. In general, when performing 360 lipo of the body, Dr. Sessa may treat the following body areas:
- Lower Back
Dr. Sessa may also treat the hips and mid-back depending on the needs of the patient and their goals. Additionally, the extent of the liposuction may vary based on how much fat exists in each given area.
The above areas constitute the most frequently treated areas for liposuction 360. However, the term refers to any time liposuction is performed completely around a body part. For example, 360 lipo of the thighs is when liposuction encompasses the circumference of the leg.
