Lipo 360 in Bakersfield and Orange County
Researching cosmetic surgery procedures like liposuction in Orange County leads many people to a wealth of information. Especially if you’re looking for liposuction around your midsection, you’ve probably come across lipo 360. This liposuction procedure lends itself to the creation of an hourglass figure and a contoured midsection, all the way around. If this sounds like the perfect confidence booster for you, Silhouette has you covered.

Liposuction is one such solution for nearly every area of the body that you don’t feel comfortable with. If you’re looking to improve your shape and boost your confidence, contact Silhouette today.

What Is Lipo 360?
Lipo 360 is a liposuction procedure that targets the midsection of the body. Specifically, it targets all the way around the midsection, hence the 360 part of the name. It often involves liposuction of the abdomen, hips, waist, back, and love handles. Keep in mind, however, that not every plastic surgeon has the same definition for lipo 360. Many surgeons refer to lipo 360 as a procedure that focuses solely on the front of the body. Others include the back in their definition.
One of the primary goals of 360 lipo is to achieve a desirable circumference. This means that the patient wants to be thinner overall around their midsection, which means taking inches or centimeters off the waist and abdomen. The procedure eliminates stubborn or unwanted fat in the specified regions with the appropriate liposuction technique. Expectations include a “balanced” appearance that is at least semi-permanent, if not permanent.
Liposculpturing is another feature of Lipo 360. While liposuction primarily intends to remove fat from the body, your surgeon will also emphasize liposculpturing. This entails that the procedure reshapes and recontours the residual fat deposits into a curvier profile in addition to removing the fat cells from the belly.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for 360 Lipo?
Ideal candidates for any type of cosmetic procedure are generally over 18 years of age, as well as in good physical condition and health. We also prefer patients who have realistic expectations for their outcome. Plastic surgery is not a pathway to perfection, but it certainly helps with self esteem. As long as you maintain realistic expectations for the results and communicate with your surgeon, you are a good candidate. Dr. Daneshmand is able to produce stellar results, and has done so countless times. To ensure that your procedure goes as smoothly as possible, schedule a consultation with Dr. D.
From a more technical point of view, those who struggle with excess fat deposits, a misshapen figure, and who have good skin elasticity are good candidates. The possible treatment areas include the upper and lower abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, love handles, and back.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery states that a good candidate for plastic surgery wants to rid themselves of stubborn fat in specific areas. They also maintain a healthy lifestyle and understand the difference between liposuction and weight loss surgery. Gastric bypass surgery is completely different from liposuction.
How Does Lipo 360 Differ from Traditional Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that involves the removal of fat cells from certain body regions. This creates a more toned profile by making the contours smaller and smoother. The most significant distinction between regular liposuction and Lipo 360 is that, although traditional liposuction targets a single area at a time, Lipo 360 may target numerous areas of the stomach at once. Lipo 360 is a 360-degree concentric liposuction technique that produces a more thorough and efficient treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Lipo 360?
The major advantage of this surgery is that you will have a more comprehensive outcome with better body shapes. Traditional liposuction on the abdomen, for example, eliminates fat but leaves the body’s overall proportions essentially unaltered. With a more complete treatment, your surgeon will take into account the entire profile and silhouette of the stomach, not just eliminating fat from the back, tummy, and love handles, but also sculpting and shaping the body to give you the form you desire. Additional benefits include the following.
- Removing stubborn fat from the abdomen for a flatter stomach
- Removing the love handles for a more shapely waist
- Combinable with fat grafting to the buttock area for a Brazilian butt lift
- Eliminating “muffin tops” to result in better-fitting clothing
- Increasing your confidence in your own appearance
How Many Areas Does Lipo 360 Include?
Lipo 360 is a 360-degree circumference liposuction treatment that targets all regions of the abdomen. The upper and lower abdominals, the obliques, and the mid-to-lower back are among the regions that can be treated. Lipo 360 gives patients a variety of options to guarantee that they get the customized results they want.
Is 360 Lipo Right For You?
Because so many treatment options exist for different areas of the body, it’s important to determine whether or not a particular option is right for you. While considering lipo 360, ask your surgeon about both the pros and cons of the procedure. As we discussed above, lipo 360 is more beneficial than traditional liposuction if you want to focus more on the proportions. It also combines well with other types of procedures, including the Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck.
While liposuction 360 is a safe and effective surgery that most patients are pleased with, it will not remove all of the extra skin that remains, especially after a significant weight reduction or pregnancy. You’ll need a tummy tuck, a body lift, or any other cosmetic treatment recommended by your physician to achieve this. Remember that 360-degree lipo is not a weight-loss treatment, therefore you should be at a stable weight before having it done.
What to Expect from 360 Lipo
First, you’ll meet with Dr. Daneshmand during your consultation. He will examine the areas you want to alter and make recommendations based on your desired shape and definition.
Lipo 360 suctions fat from particular regions of the abdomen using a vacuum. Special methods are used by our doctors to enhance your natural contours and provide a dramatic yet natural-looking outcome. In certain situations, in addition to standard liposuction, the surgeon may employ a laser to effectively melt fat and tighten the skin.
Lipo 360 also has the added benefit of not requiring general anesthetic. The majority of patients simply require IV sedation for this operation.
What Is Recovery Like for Lipo 360?
The recovery time after lipo 360 is similar to the recovery time after standard lipo. The treated region has some bruising, and there is some discomfort. However, this should not come as a surprise to anyone who has reasonable expectations.
We recommend that clients take some time off work, as well as other activities, for their recovery. This allows them to get the proper amount of rest and recovery time. However, expect to be able to return to work in around a week, sometimes less. Additionally, we recommend that you avoid strenuous activities like exercise. Wait a few weeks before getting back into your normal exercise routine.
How Long Before I See Lipo 360 Results?
After the operation, there is a one-week recuperation time. During this time, the patient will most likely be inflamed, making it difficult to observe any results at all.
It is critical to use compression clothing to reduce the chance of edema. To reduce the risk of other problems, the patient should begin mild activity approximately one week after surgery. After the operation, they should be able to resume rigorous activity in about a month.
Even after the healing phase, it may take months for the patient to see a difference. How quickly the patient notices the outcomes depends on the particular patient and the body region that the surgeon liposuctioned. Some people see a difference as soon as three months following the operation, while others may take up to six months to notice a difference.
The ultimate results might take up to a year to appear in many cases. If the patient desires, they might choose to have revision surgery at this time.
How Much Is Lipo 360?
The cost of liposuction is determined on the size of the target area. When it comes to choosing which body parts you want fat removed from, the final choice is yours. If you want your upper and lower abdomen, as well as your waist and hips, the entire cost will be between $5,500 and $7,500, depending on the size of your case. The fee will be more if you also want to work on your upper back. When we work on the love handles/hips area, we usually notice significant improvements.
Scheduling a consultation is the best method to receive an individual price quotation. A consultation will examine for visceral fat, skin laxity, diastasis recti, and other problems that might influence your outcomes, as well as determine if you’re a candidate for Lipo 360. Virtual consultations, as well as in-person consultations, are accessible at Silhouette Plastic Surgery. You will, however, need to meet in person before scheduling surgery, regardless of whatever option you use.
