Patients who have lost a lot of weight are often left with hanging skin, which can be both physically and psychologically frustrating. Likewise, women left with excess or loose skin after giving birth, may find it difficult to get back to their pre-pregnancy body. Fortunately, lipo 360° Miami, also known as 360 degree liposuction, can treat and correct these issues and help patients achieve the coveted hourglass shape.
This body contouring surgery uses technology to effectively melt and remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, flanks, lower and upper back. Read on, to find out how lipo 360° Miami can benefit you.
Candidates for 360° liposuction
If you haven’t been able to get rid of stubborn fat, chances are lipo 360° Miami may be able to help. Patients who wish to undergo 360 degree liposuction must have a healthy lifestyle, realistic expectations, and understand that lipo 360 is not a weight loss surgery.
You should also have good skin quality and be close to your target weight but have areas that are getting in the way of achieving a smooth silhouette. Unlike traditional lipo, which generally targets only one area, lipo 360° Miami addresses the entire torso.
Your 360° lipo procedure
Your surgeon will first create several small incisions around the targeted areas. Then, a special solution composed of sterile salt water and a local anesthetic is injected to loosen up fat cells in the areas where liposuction will be performed. A small tube “cannula” is used to suction away the fat cells circumferentially while also sculpting the area beautifully.
Lipo 360 is an outpatient procedure, which means you get to go home on the same day. Recovery is lengthier when general anesthesia is used. After surgery, you may experience swelling, bruising and tenderness, for which you will take pain medications and wear a compression garment to aid with healing and maintain the new shape. Temporary drains may be placed in the incisions to eliminate excess fluids and blood. Most patients take a week off from work to recover. However, all vigorous activities or exercise should be avoided for several weeks. You will notice an improvement right away. However, the final results are not fully appreciated until several months after surgery.
Lipo 360 cost
The average cost of lipo 360 at Unique Aesthetic Center is $6,500. However, prices can vary from patient to patient, based on the amount of liposuction performed and the surgeon’s expertise.
