What is Liposuction 360?
Liposuction 360 is a procedure that has become very popular at Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic. The procedure is geared toward our female clientele. This procedure involves performing tumescent liposuction of 4 separate areas to snatch the waist and create an hourglass appearance to the body. It involves removing subcutaneous fat from the upper and lower abdomen, flanks, and waist. This procedure is done under local tumescent anesthesia and further definition is obtained using the SmartLipo Triplex Laser. It is the perfect procedure to correct the boxy shape that some women complain about and restores a more youthful and sexy appearance to the female body.
Who is a candidate for this procedure?
Women who are concerned about their body shape and who want to remove unwanted subcutaneous fat are excellent candidates for this procedure. If you have a large amount of visceral fat (intrabdominal fat around your internal organs), you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. We prefer that you do not have any chronic medical problems and are in good general health. We discourage smoking patients form having the procedure since there results are not as good as non-smokers. This procedure is not a weight loss procedure, it is a body contouring procedure that helps redefine your body shape.
Is there an age limit for this procedure?
Young and old patients alike can benefit from this procedure. If you are in good general health and don’t have any of the contraindications discussed above, you may qualify for this procedure. At Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic your safety is our main concern and we do everything pre-operatively to make sure you are an appropriate candidate. We have done older patients and they have done fine.
Does having a prior C-Section matter?
A lot of our patients have had prior C-sections. We can make the area of the C-section scar smoother and remove the fatty pouch that sometimes accumulates above the scar. It is not a contraindication for having Lipo 360.
What is the recovery time after the procedure?
Most patients experience some discomfort after the procedure for 2-5 days. The discomfort usually decreases after the second or third day. It is recommended that you rest for 1-2 days after the procedure. You will be wearing a compression garment that will help with the discomfort. Most patients can return to work in 3-4 days. You will have some drainage for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure which is normal. The small punctures that are created to do the surgery will close in a few days.
What kind of results can I expect from the procedure?
Most of our patients are very pleased after this procedure. It allows them to wear clothing that was not flattering prior to the surgery. It makes them feel more confident and positive about their appearance. It usually can decrease the circumference around their waist by 4-5 inches and create noticeable curves.
What is the cost of the procedure?
The procedure costs vary depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the size of the patient. The procedure cost starts at $8500. Larger patients that require more work and contouring are more expensive. Fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) can also be added to this procedure for even greater body enhancing results! Additional costs will apply.
What are the risks associated with the procedure?
Like all operative procedures there is a risk of infection. But at our facility we have a very low infection rate well below 1%. Contour irregularities can also occur when doing the procedure, but at Atlanta Liposuction we are very precise with the placement of our entry ports and strive to obtain smooth results in all our procedures. Adding the SmartLipo Tiplex laser to enhance our results also sets us apart from most other facilities.
