Lipo 360 is a known terminology that describes liposuction of the midsection of the body including the front and back of the body. The specific areas targeted during a lipo 360 are the obliques and abdominals which includes both upper and lower and the mid to lower back area.
Lipo 360 or Liposuction 360 is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that will help with the removal of fat. This outpatient liposuction procedure includes in removing fat all-around your midsection to give you an hourglass appearance. This cosmetic surgery uses tumescent liposuction combined with power assisted liposuction. Lipo 360 is better than traditional liposuction due to the ability to target many regions at once. Not all patients are candidates for Lipo 360.
General anesthesia or local anesthesia is injected with sedation directly into the target area by our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Payne. During the procedure tumescent fluid is injected to help with pain and bleeding during the liposuction. At your initial consultation, Dr. Payne our cosmetic surgeon will design a unique plan to satisfy your needs and for you to meet your aesthetic goals.

A good candidate for Lipo 360 are typically patients who are wanting to remove excess fat who are concerned about their loose skin. Lipo 360 can give you a more contoured appearance by shaping your entire midsection 360 degrees around the body. We recommend an ideal candidate to be an ideal body weight and to maintain a good diet and exercise. An overall good health is ideal to achieve the best possible results.
It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, it is instead a body contouring procedure that will help with the shaping appearance of your body. The goals are to remove stubborn fat areas to help with achieving your new slimmer body shape. Your BMI will determine the amount of fat that can safely be removed during your procedure. Typically the amount of liposuction aspirate of fat removed in one surgical setting should not exceed 5000 cc unless an overnight hospital stay is anticipated. We recommend for our patients to actively exercise and maintain a healthy diet before the Lipo 360 procedure and afterwards to help restore healthy fat.
Liposuction 360 is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgical procedure that will leave you with small incisions. The incision is typically around 2mm and located in hidden areas. A long thin tube known as liposuction cannula is inserted to access the fat deposits and remove fat safely using a device such as Smartlipo® which can help you achieve skin tightening.
Most patients can experience moderate to mild discomfort post procedure. The numbness typically wears off after 48 hours. You will be placed in a compression garment right after your procedure. Drainage in the first 24-48 hours is normal. Your small incisions after your lipo procedure with heal in a few days. Post op instructions and instructions on how to take pain medications will be given to you right after your fat removal procedure.
Results can be long lasting since your fat cells store fat the remaining fat can return if you don’t exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.
With any surgical procedure, you are expected to have some pain. Liposuction pain can often be described as feeling soreness or stiffness similar to when having performing an strenuous activity. We recommend over the counter pain medications such as Tylenol or Advil taken on a schedule to reduce your pain. Stronger pain medications may be prescribed depending on your surgeon’s assessment.
You will definitely gain more confidence after your Lipo 360 procedure. This will enable you to wear flattering clothing and bathing suits. Excess skin may appear but once the new collagen forms, your skin should tighten over time. With proper diet and exercise to maintain your weight, the results will be long lasting.
