Lipo 360° is a liposuction procedure that targets the entire abdominal region. It is often called “circumferential lipo” since it circles 360 degrees around the midsection to create a streamlined finish from every angle. Lipo 360° targets the:
Patients also inquire about liposuction on their arms, thighs, and buttocks area. While Lipo 360° does not address these body areas, the liposuction doctors at Body Aesthetic Center will collaborate with you and create a strategy to transform your figure
BENEFITS OF 360° LIPO
Aside from being non-invasive and requiring minimal downtime, the greatest benefit of Lipo 360° is that it permanently removes fat cells from the entire midsection. Your body has a set number of adipocytes (fat cells) that grow in size but not in number. Once they are suctioned from your abdomen, they do not regenerate. Circumferential liposuction delivers a 360-degree transformation, resulting in:
A flatter stomach
Streamlined abdominal muscles
Improved waist-to-hip and waist-to-bust ratio
LIPO 360° TECHNIQUES
Tumescent liposuction is a type of suction-assisted lipo that involves applying a tumescent solution to bind, swell, and stiffen the fat cells, making them easier to suction out with a microcannula. This is the most common liposuction technique, as it comfortably removes large quantities of fat from various body areas.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
Power-assisted liposuction is distinguished by its vibrating cannula. Vibrations from the cannula loosen fat cells, making lipo more gentle on the body, enabling a smoother extraction. This liposuction method is excellent for delicate regions of the midsection and is commonly utilized when performing circumferential liposuction.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction or SmartLipo:
SmartLipo utilizes concentrated laser light to soften and liquidize the fat. Not only does this laser-assisted liposuction technique melt fat, but its laser tautens the skin and seals blood vessels. This helps alleviate swelling, bleeding, and bruising during the healing process. Laser-assisted lipo helps improve skin quality in certain Lipo 360° patients.
Ultrasonic Liposuction or VASER lipo
VASER liposuction is a type of ultrasonic liposuction that uses pressured ultrasound waves to liquefy the fat. The cannula vibrates swiftly, emitting ultrasound energy that melts the fat so the surgeon can easily suction it. This liposuction technique works best on sensitive areas with many folds.
360° LIPO CANDIDATES
The ideal candidates for 360° Lipo are in good general health, do not smoke, and have sufficient skin elasticity. Those with loose or hanging skin should consider surgical procedures instead. Patients should also be within their ideal weight range. Those with medical conditions affecting the heart, lungs, circulation, or immune system may be more vulnerable to complications during 360-degree liposuction and should discuss potential risks with their doctors.
LIPO 360° RECOVERY
You will experience soreness, swelling, and bruising on the abdomen and surrounding regions after Lipo 360°. Every patient recovers at a different rate depending on their size, chosen liposuction technique, general health, and if they decide to graft the fat to other body areas. Nonetheless, it takes most patients only one week to commence routine tasks after their procedure. You will need to wear a compression garment 24/7 for the first three to four weeks after liposuction to help prevent fluid from accumulating between the skin and muscle on the treatment area. The garment keeps your incision dressings in place, improves circulation, and minimizes swelling to enhance your new curves. Swelling should subside within 6 weeks, and final results will appear after 12 weeks once the skin settles and adjusts.

Many patients report that it is easier to find flattering clothes. We want to help you feel more confident in your skin after Lipo 360°!
360° LIPO FAQS
360-degree liposuction, commonly known as Lipo 360°, is a liposuction procedure that suctions fat from all areas of the midsection. It is also called “circumferential liposuction” since it transforms 360 degrees around the corresponding body areas. Your Body by Unique liposuction doctor will recommend the best liposuction technique to perform this procedure.
Although 360-degree liposuction is a noninvasive and reasonably harmless cosmetic procedure, it should be taken seriously. Your surgeon will evaluate your entire medical history and discuss the risks at your initial consultation. Some general complications associated with Lipo 360° include:
Adverse reaction to anesthesia
Patients should avoid blood thinners, baths, hot tubs, and pools for several weeks after their Lipo 360° procedure. While we encourage patients to walk after the first week, they must avoid any strenuous exercises until cleared by the surgeon. We recommend all patients drink ample amounts of water and wear their compression garments 24/7 for the first several weeks after 360-degree lipo.
Absolutely! Lipo 360° is a popular procedure for men, seeing as the most popular male body areas are the chest, abdomen, and flanks or love handles. The liposuction doctors at Body Aesthetic Center are experienced in male lipo. Male fat is more fibrous than that of women and must be removed more gently. Our liposuction doctors in Miami specialize in the craft, resulting in our male patients’ full satisfaction!
The results of liposuction are considered permanent since fat cells do not regenerate once they are liposuctioned out. However, fat can accumulate and expand further in other body areas should a patient gain weight afterward. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly is the best way to prevent this.
The average cost of 360° Lipo at Body Aesthetic Center ranges from $4,000 to $8,000USD. Pricing for this procedure depends on various factors, such as the patient’s size or whether the suctioned fat is being transferred to another body area. We provide patients with a customized cost at their initial consultation with the surgeon of their choice.
Lipo 360° is not a weight loss solution as much as it is a body contouring technique. Therefore, patients can expect to lose anywhere between 1 to 10 pounds of fat.
After their circumferential lipo procedure, Lipo 360° patients can expect to lose a couple of inches from the waist. Typically, they can expect to lose one inch for every five pounds of fat eliminated, but this varies from patient to patient.
The BBL, or Brazilian butt lift, is a surgical procedure that grafts fat from the midsection to the buttocks. It combines Lipo 360° with a butt augmentation, using the patient’s own body fat to create new curves. The board-certified BBL surgeons at Body Aesthetic Center will answer any questions you may have about this 2-in-1 body contouring procedure.
