Candidates for 360° Liposuction
When you’re unable to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat through traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise, liposuction may be able to help. The best candidates for 360° liposuction should be at or near their target weight, yet have areas of exercise-resistant fat that are getting in the way of achieving a smoother, sleeker and more contoured shape.
Unlike traditional liposuction, which typically targets one specific area of unwanted fat, 360° lipo addresses your entire torso, including your:
Commonly paired with a Brazilian butt lift to help enhance your BBL results and accentuate that coveted hourglass shape, 360° liposuction can also be combined with a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Your 360° Lipo Procedure
During your consultation, Dr. Andan will listen to your body contouring goals and help you choose the most effective surgical solution. If you decide to move forward with 360° lipo, you can expect a similar procedure to traditional tumescent liposuction.
First, Dr. Andan will create several small incisions around the area to be treated. Then, a special solution made up of sterile salt water and a local anesthetic is injected to help loosen the unwanted fat cells.
The actual fat cell extraction process involves the use of a small, hollow tube called a cannula, which is carefully inserted through the incisions. Using this device, Dr. Andan is able to suction away stubborn fat cells circumferentially around the entire treatment area while simultaneously sculpting and shaping your contours.
Your Recovery and Results
After getting 360° lipo, you can expect some swelling, bruising and tenderness. Dr. Andan will send you home with detailed recovery guidelines, including how and when to wear your compression garment.
Although everyone will recover at a different rate, most people take anywhere from a few days to a week off work after liposuction. However, you will need to avoid heavy lifting and vigorous exercise for several weeks.
You should notice an improvement in your body shape and the way your clothes fit soon after your 360° lipo procedure. However, because swelling can last for several months, you won’t see your final results right away. As swelling diminishes, you should begin to see your new, better-contoured shape become more clearly revealed while your results continue developing.

360 lipo is a relatively common procedure, which means you are likely to find multiple surgeons near you who offer it. The first step you need to take is to research surgeons in your area who list the procedure on their websites and determine which ones feel like they could be good fits for you. Then, schedule consultations with two to three of them.
At the consultation, get a feel for the way the surgeon works. Look at before and after photos and ask yourself how comfortable you feel with them. From there, select the surgeon who best meets your expectations and schedule the procedure.
How we experience pain is unique to us. Because clients can have very different experiences, we cannot say in advance how the post-surgery pain will impact you. However, pain is part of the process. For the majority of our clients, the worst pain comes directly after surgery. Lingering pain steadily tapers off over the course of a few weeks. Keep in mind that you will not be left to suffer through this; we prescribe pain medications for the post-surgery period and will explain steps you can take to feel more comfortable.
As with any other surgery, you will need to take time off from work and other activities to recovery after 360 lipo. Clients typically need to take at least 3 days to fully rest at home, having a loved one or nurse to help them in all tasks. After those initial days, it is okay to move around while still taking it easy. Clients are expected to take a minimum of one week off from work.
As soon as you feel comfortable getting up and moving, it is imperative that you do so. Movement increases circulation, which promotes healing and prevents the stiffness liposuction can cause. Within 6 weeks, you should be back to your normal routine.
360 lipo is considered a safe procedure. However, it is a type of surgery, and surgical procedures always carry risks. The most common concerns are the same as with other surgeries: infection, excessive bleeding and adverse reactions. Although you should not go into the procedure expecting complications, we always want our clients and their caregivers to watch for them.
