Lipo 360 stands for liposuction around your entire midsection, i.e. 360 degrees. It doesn’t refer to a specific liposuction technique but rather to the area it covers. It means that your midsection can be shaped the entire way around, including upper and lower abdomen, the back, and the sides (flanks). All this can be combined into one single procedure so that you get evenly toned results around your entire abdomen.

How Lipo 360 Works
Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure given under local anesthesia. On the day of your procedure after the anesthesia is applied to the entire area, your plastic surgeon uses a thin wand inserted under the skin to break up and suction off fat. This can be done with traditional or power-assisted liposuction, depending on which technique the surgeon has discussed with you.
Patients often pair liposuction with a skin tightening treatment such as BodyTite or Renuvion, which both use targeted heat generated from radio frequency to shrink tissues and contract the skin. This kind of treatment is also called Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL). Thanks to modern advances in technology, it is a great alternative to surgical procedures such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, thigh lifts, and neck lifts.
Tightening your skin is an important consideration, because liposuction alone often does not result in the tight, rejuvenated look you may desire. Since both liposuction and skin tightening require the area to be anesthetized, you can save time and money by combining these procedures into one.
Is Lipo 360 the Right Treatment For Anyone And Any Area?
While the term Lipo 360 refers to the midsection, there is no reason you are limited to the abdomen only. Liposuction – both traditional and RFAL – can be applied to any area of the body, from the neck down to the knees. If you find yourself bothered by fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise, having liposuction to remove these fat cells is an excellent option.
The best way to find out how such areas can be effectively treated is to speak with a plastic surgeon. Not all patients are good candidates for liposuction. If your BMI is over 40 (the threshold for obesity), you are not likely to see good results from liposuction. Most surgeons would advise you to first reach your target weight with a weight loss program. Cosmetic weight loss procedures such as a gastric balloon are also an option.
If your BMI is in the 30-40 range, you may get better results from a gastric balloon or tummy tuck rather than liposuction. It really depends on your personal circumstances and goals. Calculate your BMI to get an idea of where you stand, and then schedule a consultation.
