Lipo 360 Technique to Remove Stubborn Fat
Liposuction 360 or “Lipo 360” is a plastic surgery that involves removing fat from multiple areas of the body. These areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and waist. The term “360” refers to the fat removal from around the entire circumference of the body. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure and is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. It is for people who have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Like all surgical procedures, there are risks involved, so it’s important to discuss the potential benefits and risks with a qualified plastic surgeon before deciding to undergo Liposuction 360.
A good candidate for Liposuction 360
A good candidate for Liposuction 360 should be in good overall health: This means that the person has no serious medical conditions that could complicate the procedure or hinder the healing process. They should be near their ideal body weight and have good skin elasticity: The skin should be able to shrink and conform to the new body contours after the fat is removed. The person must be in good mental health with realistic expectations. They should also be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking as it can increase the risk of complications.
What Happens During Liposuction?
During the liposuction surgery, the patient is placed, under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the extent of the procedure. A plastic surgeon will make small incisions in the targeted areas and use a suction device to remove excess fat cells. These incisions are typically small and hidden in natural creases or folds. After desired amount of fat removal the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical glue. Compression garments help reduce swelling and aid in healing.
What Happens After Liposuction?
The fat removal results in a more contoured appearance and improved body proportions. Recovery time can vary. Most patients are able to return to work within a week or two, after the procedure. The surgeon prescribes pain medication to manage any discomfort. The patient may also experience swelling and bruising, which is manageable. The patient needs to attend follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor their progress and ensure that the incisions are healing properly.
Benefits of Liposuction 360
Liposuction 360 is excellent for achieving a toned and sculpted appearance. It also boosts self-confidence in patients who are uncomfortable in their own skin. Once the fat cells are removed, they do not come back, providing permanent results. The incisions made during Liposuction 360 cause minimal scarring. It improves overall health by reducing the risk of health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. With expert advice from trained plastic surgeons, liposuction can be your ticket to get the perfectly toned body that you want.
