Lipo 360



360 Lipo

Many individuals struggle with stubborn pockets of excess fat in the midsection, usually due to pregnancy, hormones, genetics, and other factors beyond their control. These often do not respond to diet and exercise. Some patients may feel embarrassed about their appearance and unable to wear their favorite clothing items. While a tummy tuck can help, it doesn’t address fat deposits on the back and sides. Plastic surgeons use the lipo 360 technique to get rid of excess fat from the entire abdominal region. This cosmetic treatment works like a circumferential tummy tuck but results in less downtime and faster recovery. Patients who undergo this innovative plastic surgery enjoy an optimally contoured midsection that contributes to a leaner, smoother, and more desirable frame.

Baton Rouge plastic surgeon Dr. Ruston Sanchez offers 360 lipo to men and women from the city and surrounding Louisiana areas. The surgeon aims to target pockets of fat in the belly along with rolls on the waste or love handle that won’t easily go away. Through this technique, Dr. Sanchez has helped countless patients enhance their physique and confidence without the need for an invasive, traditional tummy tuck. Dr. Sanchez utilizes advanced liposuction techniques to achieve the best possible outcome while also minimizing the risk of complications.

Am I a Candidate for Lipo 360?

360 liposuction is a body contouring procedure that aims to reshape a patient’s physique from a 360-degree perspective. Plastic surgeons focus on multiple midsection areas in order to achieve a significantly more attractive appearance. You may be an ideal candidate for this treatment if:

  • You are above the age of 18
  • You are physically and mentally healthy
  • You have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone but are bothered by stubborn pockets of fat in the midsection areas
  • You are within 30% of your ideal weight
  • You understand that this is not a weight loss surgery such as
  • You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this treatment

During your lipo 360 consultation visit with Dr. Ruston Sanchez, the surgeon will listen to your concerns, examine your problem areas, and assess your medical history before letting you know whether this treatment is for you. Individuals with excess skin in the midsection may benefit more from a circumferential tummy tuck as opposed to this procedure. Because a 360 liposuction is a highly individualized procedure, Dr. Sanchez requires that you are having this treatment out of your own volition, not because someone else asked you to.

Benefits of a 360 Lipo

Individuals who have excess midsection fat that doesn’t respond to lifestyle interventions can benefit a lot from this body contouring technique. 360 liposuction can permanently remove fat cells in the target areas, enhance body shape, and dramatically improve your physique. Many of Dr. Sanchez’s Baton Rouge patients report the following lipo 360 benefits:

  • Tighter and flatter abdominal appearance
  • Curvier buttocks
  • Abdominal muscles that are more visible
  • Elimination of excess fat deposits
  • Reduction of love handles

While a 360 lipo is primarily performed for aesthetic reasons, it may also help conditions such as obesity, gynecomastia, lymphedema, and lipomas.

LIPO 360

Dr. Ruston’s Lipo 360 Approach

With this procedure, Dr. Ruston aims to create a more proportionate, leaner, and attractive midsection with natural curves. The surgeon will primarily focus on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, lower, back, and love handles to deliver comprehensive contouring of the midsection.
360 liposuction is an outpatient that is typically performed at Dr. Ruston’s in-office operating room or any other accredited surgical facility. An anesthesiologist will apply local or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the treatment. The surgeon will then create tiny incisions in the target areas and use the process of liposuction to get rid of excess fat. Depending on the scope of the treatment, the procedure takes between 2 and 4 hours to complete. Once the desired reshaping has been completed, the incisions will be closed and the treatment area wrapped with a bandage. Patients are required to stay in the recovery/observation room for 1 or 2 hours so that their vital signs can be monitored before they are allowed to proceed home for recovery.

360 Lipo With BBL

Some women choose to combine a 360 lipo with a Brazilian butt lift. Excess fat removed from other parts of the midsection is purified and then used to lift and enhance the buttocks. This procedure combo can result in a dramatic enhancement of the female silhouette and sometimes even achieve the desirable hourglass figure. If you’d like to combine these procedures, make sure you let Dr. Sanchez know during your consultation visit so he can ascertain your suitability and create an individualized treatment plan for you.

After Your Surgery

Since 360-degree liposuction is an outpatient procedure, most patients are allowed to go home on the same day as the surgery. You will be asked to take light walks as soon as you can in order to promote proper blood flow. Swelling and bruising are common, especially over the first few days post-operative. Dr. Sanchez will prescribe pain killers to improve discomfort and antibiotics to prevent an infection. You will also be furnished with comprehensive aftercare instructions that you should strictly adhere to in order to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted recovery. Among other things, you’ll need to properly care for the treatment areas and avoid strenuous activities. The majority of patients are able to resume routine activities within 2 – 4 weeks. However, you may need to wait up to 2 months (sometimes more) before you are allowed to exercise.

How much does a lipo 360 cost?

The cost of a 360 lipo will vary from one patient to the other depending on the number of treatment areas, the amount of excess fat that needs to be removed, and the complexity of treatment. Health insurers typically do not pay for liposuction and other procedures that are considered to be elective in nature. 

Lipo 360 vs full body liposuction
Many patients mistake a 360 lipo to be whole-body liposuction. This is far from true. 360 liposuction targets midsection areas, focusing on the abdomen, back, sides, and love handles. Full body liposuction, on the other hand, will additionally focus on the buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and numerous other body areas. If you are contemplating full liposuction, let Dr. Ruston know during one of your pre-op consultation visits.
Does a 360 lipo tighten skin?
360 liposuction procedures are designed to get rid of excess fat from midsection areas. This procedure does not focus on skin tightening. If you have significant skin laxity in the focus area, you may need to consider specific skin tightening procedures such as the Vaser Lipo 360. Patients with severe excess skin in the midsection area may need to have a circumferential tummy tuck in order to attain the best possible outcome.
