While most people heard about fat removal through traditional liposuction, not everyone is familiar with 360 liposuction or 360-degree liposuction. To inform patients fully about 360-degree lipo, Dr Lanzer and his associates created this overview of information about the surgical procedure.
What Is Lipo 360?
Lipo 360 gets its name from how body contouring is done by the cosmetic surgery during this cosmetic surgery. During lipo 360, the cosmetic surgery will focus on the midsection of the patient and treat it in an area of 360 degrees.
Since precise surgical practices are used during this procedure, it becomes even more important to choose a board-certified surgeon. The Dr Lanzer Clinic specialises in liposuction procedures, which includes the lipo 360.
How Does Lipo 360 Work?
Before you have the fat removal surgery, you will speak with your cosmetic surgery during your first consultation. During this consultation, your surgeon will ask you about your expectations from the procedure, more specifically how you want different areas of the body to change; this can include the abdomen, waist and more.
During the lipo 360 procedure, the surgeon uses a special suction device to remove stubborn fat from the midsection. The aim is to restore the patient’s natural silhouette or athletic physique.
If the patient wants to improve skin tightening, the cosmetic surgery can choose to add a laser resurfacing treatment during the procedure. This is where the cosmetic surgery uses a special laser to target certain layers of the skin, which in turn promotes the production of collagen.
What Does Lipo 360 Include?
The lipo 360 is often confused with the tummy tuck, even though the treatment tackles more areas. Contrary to looking at the abdomen and loose skin, the procedure looks at the entire midsection. With lipo 360, the cosmetic surgery can target the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, flanks, lower back, and the mid-back.

How Much Does A 360 Lipo Cost?
A lipo 360 can look different for each patient, and so the cost can be different too. To ensure patients have an accurate view on the cost of their procedure, Dr Lanzer and his associates recommend getting your quote directly from your clinic. At The Dr Lanzer Clinic you can receive your quote by taking advantage of a free no-obligation appointment for new patients.
What Is The Recovery Time For Lipo 360?
Most patients can return to their regular activities quite quickly. Of course, downtime can be different for everyone and patients should expect some common side-effects accompanying this type of cosmetic surgery.
Swelling and bruising are two of the common side-effects that can be experienced after lipo 360. Patients are generally able to manage any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication and a compression garment provided by their cosmetic surgery clinic.
Your cosmetic surgery can give you a general indication of your recovery time, but it is important to listen to your own body. Take sufficient rest to let your body recover from the procedure and do some light walking from time to time to avoid complications. It is also advised to attend your follow-up appointment with your cosmetic surgery.
How Many Areas Is Lipo 360?
The lipo 360 focusses on the midsection of the patient, this means the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, flanks, lower back, and mid-back. Patients who want to improve these areas tend to be good candidates for the procedure.
A great candidate for this kind of liposuction procedure is someone who is on their ideal bodyweight but has found it difficult to shift some persistent and stubborn fat in the midsection. These facts can be resistant to diet and exercise, even though the patient lives a healthy lifestyle.
With the lipo 360 technique, the cosmetic surgery can target both small and large areas in the midsection, providing a solution for stubborn and persistent fats.
Since lipo 360 is a specialist liposuction procedure, it is important to choose the right surgeon for your procedure. The Dr Lanzer Clinic is one of the few clinics who specialises in liposuction procedures, ensuring patients are in safe and capable hands.
