Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. Due to its popularity, there is no shortage of liposuction techniques either.
Techniques range from traditional liposuction to other options like Smartlipo, Vaser, Hydro, and the list goes on.
What is 360 liposuction?
360 liposuction is a trending term you may be hearing more lately. Contrary to how it may sound, this term is actually not a new form of liposuction, but rather a way of describing the area to be treated.
In fact, the term 360 liposuction refers to taking a more comprehensive approach when treating the midsection of the body. The objective with 360 lipo is to optimize the shape and contour of the area through liposuction.
360 liposuction simply means that it is treating the abdomen, sides, waistline, flanks, and bra fat; a full 360° circumferential treatment of the torso area.
While all of these are popular areas to have liposuction, historically they have been viewed as separate areas: the abdomen as one area, the flanks as another area, and bra fat a third area. However, it’s a growing trend that people who get liposuction prefer a 360-degree, circumferential reduction rather than only addressing one area on its own. It makes sense–reduce fat in your entire torso, right?
How can I get 360 liposuction?
Since the idea of 360 liposuction has been trending and growing over time, anyone in the field should know what it means. So, just because a physician doesn’t advertise 360 lipo, anyone performing liposuction can combine the areas of your midsection in this way when administering your treatment.
360 lipo is truly just a term used to describe the concept, but it certainly resonates with anyone looking to treat the midsection/torso. Simply ask for 360 liposuction during your consultation, and your liposuction physician should know exactly what to do and give you the appropriate options.
At most medical spas and cosmetic/plastic surgery providers, you should be able to schedule a free consultation to make sure liposuction is right for you. It is truly best to have a consultation with the doctor that would be performing your liposuction procedure. With any procedure you should feel comfortable and confident with the procedure and provider.
