Abdominal liposuction is one of the most common body contouring procedures we perform at Uptown Body Contouring. Men and women struggle with excess fat that is stored around the midsection, an area that is notoriously difficult to shrink through diet and exercise. While abdominal liposuction can remove your tummy “pooch,” it does not address rolls on your waist, back, and flanks. The ultimate solution for reshaping your midsection is Lipo 360.
What Is Lipo 360?
Liposuction is usually performed in one specific area. Small incisions are made to access the fat deposits, and a thin cannula is used to suction out the unwanted fat. With Lipo 360, the same technique is used, but it is performed 360 degrees around the midsection. The abdomen, waist, flanks (love handles), and back area are reduced and reshaped. Multiple incisions are needed, but these are very small and easily hidden once they heal.
Benefits of Lipo 360
A flat stomach is wonderful, but if you still have side rolls or love handles, it does not create the ideal body shape. Lipo 360 is an opportunity to achieve the shape you always wanted. For women who carry weight around their midsection, this is a chance to create an hourglass figure with a defined waist and flat tummy. “Back fat” can also be removed, eliminating bra rolls, and creating a smooth and shapely torso.
For men, Lipo 360 can remove the dreaded love handles that many men struggle to lose. Once the fat around the stomach and flanks are removed, it is possible to achieve washboard abs. Want defined abs without the strain? Combine Lipo 360 with our abdominal etching procedures to create defined stomach muscles using precision liposuction to outline your abdominal muscles.
Recovery from Lipo 360
The results of Lipo 360 will take a few weeks to realize since there will be swelling and inflammation after the procedure. Patients will wear a compression garment that helps the skin shrink and conform to the smaller midsection as the inflammation reduces. Patients will need to recover for a few weeks while they heal before returning to work or normal activities. In the months following liposuction surgery, a new shape will appear – most patients will have their final results in about six months.
Lipo 360 is perfect for individuals who are within a healthy weight range but have excess fat around their stomach and lower back. Patients should have good skin laxity – liposuction does not remove excess skin. If there is stretched or loose skin, another procedure may be needed, like a tummy tuck.
