Tired of exercise and diets without noticeable results? Age, genetics, and hormone imbalance are a few factors that render it impossible for you to shed stubborn weight from problem areas despite your best efforts. If you’re looking for ways to get in shape, you can consider safe and effective cosmetic procedures like liposuction. Liposuction is a suction method that removes excess fat from specific parts of the body.

The body you’ve always wanted is now within your reach more than ever! With significant advancement, beauty buffs can now opt for a tailored body through 360 Liposuction, the cosmetic procedure everyone’s raving about. But before you make that appointment, make sure you know what you’re in for.

What is 360 Liposuction?

One of the most popular fat removal techniques is the Lipo 360. 360 Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that tones and contours the entire body, both front and back. This procedure is more effective than the traditional lipo as it targets the usual trouble areas, the abdomen, the flanks, and the mid-back, all at once through 360-degree round liposuction.

Traditional liposuction focuses on fat removal, but 360 Liposuction also ensures a toned, propionate body. If you perform liposuction on just the front or back, you may not get the desired waistline. Regular liposuction performed on just the front can leave the body looking unnatural and inconsistent. 360 Liposuction is circumferential and encompasses the whole mid-section to achieve optimal results.

How Does Lipo 360 Work?

Lipo 360 takes the art of sculpting your body to a new level. The multi-step procedure allows you to customise liposuction according to your desired body shape.

When you reach the clinic, you’ll meet with a patient coordinator and an experienced surgeon. During this face-to-face consultation, they will understand your requirements and the areas that need to be addressed. They will decide how to proceed to get the body shape you want.

Next, the actual procedure begins with local anaesthesia or sedation to minimise discomfort. The surgeon will make tiny incisions on the areas that you want to target. A slim tube is inserted through these incisions to dislodge the fat cells. 360 Liposuction uses a vibrating cannula device powered with ultrasound vibrations that melt fat cells upon contact. The repeated vibration motion breaks the fat cell walls, extracting the fat from surrounding, connective tissue. This makes it easier for the vacuum to suck these (now emulsified) fat cells out.

The difference is that 360 liposuction targets your problem areas around the midsection to achieve the perfect body. For example, if you want to remove abdominal fat, the surgeon might remove excess fat cells from either side of the hips or love handles to achieve a more visually appealing overall body contour instead of just focusing on one part of the body.

Excess fat removed from the body can either be discarded or, better yet, purified and used to enhance another part of your body, like your cheeks or breasts.

What are the Areas for 360 Liposuction?

The primary difference between liposuction and 360 lipo is that the latter covers all parts of the midsection. It offers patients a more comprehensive range of options to achieve a balanced body with that enviable contour.

Lipo 360 targets:

  • Upper and lower abdominals
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Lower and mid-back
Lipo 360 can be combined with the Mummy Makeover and Tummy Tuck procedure to rejuvenate the specific areas of the body (breasts and stomach) most affected by pregnancy and motherhood.

What can I expect?

It’s possible that you’ll see an immediate difference in the very first week after your procedure. Results will become more apparent after 6 weeks, as much of the swelling will have subsided by then. By three months in, you’ll noticeably have a more well-sculpted body.

What is the Surgery and Recovery Time?

The exact surgery time for 360 Liposuction varies from person to person, depending on the amount of fat to remove and the area/s being targeted. As a general rule, Lipo 360 may take anywhere between 1 and 3 hours. This refers to the time of the actual surgical procedure.

Preoperative and postoperative procedures may require additional time, depending on your chosen clinic’s protocols. Your doctor will communicate the surgery time to you before the day of surgery.

360 Liposuction has minimal downtime, but you must follow the proper protocols as in any operative procedure. You can walk right after the surgery, shower in the next 24 hours and even return to work in the next 3-4 days. You can resume other activities as soon as you feel up to it after consulting your doctor to be on the safe side.
Here is a breakdown of what to expect after Lipo 360.

Week 1-2

After the procedure, the affected area will be wrapped in a compression garment or bandage to alleviate pain, bruising, and swelling. You might experience fluid drain from the incisions for some days following treatment. This fluid may appear bloody at first. Don’t panic, as this is completely normal. The fluid will clear up after a few days.

Week 3-5

The exact recovery time will vary from person to person, but expect slight bruising to persist for about 10 to 14 days. The pain should start to subside during this time, but the swelling might continue.

After 6 Weeks

Your swelling and bruising should have subsided significantly, and you may be advised to stop wearing the compression garment completely. You can resume any activity after consulting your doctor. You will see 360 Liposuction results during this time.

What are the benefits?

360 Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that tones and contours the entire body, both front and back. The aim is for a result which is natural, consistent and confidence-boosting. 360 Liposuction targets the:

  • upper and lower abdominals
  • flanks
  • hips
  • lower and mid-back.

Traditional liposuction focuses on fat removal, but 360 Liposuction also ensures a toned, and proportioned body. Regular liposuction performed on just the front can leave the body looking unnatural and inconsistent, neglecting important areas such as the waistline. 360 Liposuction encompasses the whole mid-section of the body, to achieve the best results.

What is unique about this approach is that you can customise your procedure to your body shape, which means the results are centred around you.

What are the risks?

The vast majority of 360 Liposuction patients are extremely happy with their results. Like any procedure though, there are risks which should be considered before it is undergone. At Manchester Private Hospital, we’ll talk you through the risks before you decide whether or not to proceed.

Risks can occur at three main stages of your procedure: during the surgery, immediately after and during recovery.
Risks during surgery include:

  • puncture wounds or injuries to other organs
  • anaesthesia complications
  • burns from equipment, such as ultrasound probes
  • nerve damage
  • shock
  • death.

Risks immediately after surgery

The risks after the procedure include:

  • blood clot in the lungs
  • too much fluid in the lungs
  • fat clots
  • infections
  • hematoma (bleeding under the skin)
  • seroma (fluid leaking under the skin)
  • edema (swelling)
  • skin necrosis (the death of skin cells)
  • reactions to anaesthesia and other medications
  • heart and kidney problems.
  • death

Risks during recovery

The risks during recovery include:

  • problems with the shape or contours of the body
  • wavy, dimpled, or bumpy skin
  • numbness, bruising, pain, swelling, and soreness
  • infections
  • fluid imbalances
  • scars
  • changes in skin sensation and feeling
  • skin colour changes
  • problems with healing.

What are the side-effects?

Liposuction is a relatively straightforward procedure, with a low risk of adverse side effects. However, common side effects of Lipo 360 can include:

  • bruising and swelling (which may last up to six months)
  • numbness (which should go away in six to eight weeks)
  • scars
  • inflammation of the treated area, or the veins underneath
  • fluid coming from the incisions
  • swollen ankles (if the legs or ankles are treated).

The cost and finance options

The cost of 360 Liposuction will vary depending on the size and number of areas to be treated. It is more comprehensive than traditional liposuction, so you can expect to pay between £6,000 and £10,000 at a reputable clinic in the UK.

While opting for cheaper treatments may seem tempting, they come with a slightly elevated risk of injury and the need for corrective procedures.

360 Lipo Before and After

You will see an immediate difference in the very first week after Lipo 360. Results will become more apparent after 6 weeks, as much of the swelling will have subsided by then. Expect complete results, i.e., a well-shaped body with lesser fat in problem areas within 3 months after the surgical procedure.

The quest for a toned, well-contoured body is now one 360 Lipo treatment away. This safe and effective procedure boasts quick results with minimal downtime and risks. Opt for a reliable cosmetic surgery clinic in the UK to ensure they have the experience and post-operative care to ensure the best results with the safety you need.
