Lipo 360 Miami is a remarkable procedure, yielding unbelievable results to many women in South Florida and throughout the nation. This procedure can trim excess fat to achieve a more stunning and firmer looking balance and symmetry of the body. Also known as circumferential liposuction, 360-Degree Lipo can target more areas of the body.
During Lipo 360 Miami at Jolie Plastic Surgery, our surgeons use the natural contours to enhance the patient’s figure. She makes sure the patient’s silhouette looks as natural as possible by using subtle ways to highlight the best female features. The focus is the patient’s full body contours rather than a specific area.
What is lipo 360?
Lipo 360 is mostly liposuction to the front and back of the torso achieving greater circumferential results. This procedure is conducted 360 degrees and helps eliminate unwanted fat in the waist and torso sculpting several areas to create a finer and seamlessly balanced appearance. Lipo 360 Miami can forever alter the shape of the body.
Ideal candidate for 360-Degree Lipo
The ideal candidate for 360° liposuction is defined as any patient over 18 years of age with good health and realistic expectations. Although Lipo 360 Miami can deliver significant results, patients should be aware that the results are not completely perfect.
Individuals who have excess fat deposits, body areas that are misshapen and good skin elasticity, are good candidates for this procedure. 360-Degree Lipo is primarily performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, a good candidate for liposuction is someone who wants to get rid of undesirable fat in specific areas such as the face, neck, torso, breast, arms and legs. Patients must have a healthy lifestyle and understand this is not a weight loss surgery such as the Orbera gastric balloon.
Differences between 360-degree liposuction and traditional liposuction
360-degree liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction except lipo 360 takes it a step further. Traditional liposuction is basically done on the abdomen, waist or the back. 360-Degree lipo, on the other hand, is a more inclusive surgery. This procedure covers the whole midsection to accomplish a curvier shape from all angles. In other words, 360-degree liposuction targets various stubborn fat areas, particularly in the midsection.
How is Lipo 360 Miami performed?
Lipo 360 Miami involves various steps:
First, medications are administered to make the patient feel more comfortable during the procedure. There is anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia involved in this procedure. Your surgeon will let you know what the best option is in your particular case.
A small incision is performed and local anesthesia infused to help lessen bleeding as well as trauma. The surgeon will insert a hollow tube or cannula in the incision to loosen excess fat, and then remove it with a surgical vacuum.
Once the swelling and fluid retention stops, the patient will start noticing improvements in body contour.
Lipo 360 with BBL
Lipo 360 Miami can be combined effortlessly with other procedures such as the popular Brazilian butt lift (BBL). During your initial consultation at Jolie Plastic Surgery, patients may decide if they want to combine Lipo 360 with BBL.
Many of our patients like combining these procedures to contour the waist and achieve maximum results. You can discuss your options with your cosmetic surgeon to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
First, the surgeon will shape the waist using 360-degree liposuction reducing and sculpting the waistline. The hips are also widened, and fat is added to the buttock. These two procedures combined help the surgeon achieve the desired projection.
Benefits of 360° liposuction
360° liposuction can permanently remove fat cells, changing the shape of the body, and significantly improve appearance. Patients whose lifestyle changes have not helped them achieve the desired results will benefit from this procedure.
Although this procedure is largely done for cosmetic reasons, some doctors have used liposuction to treat some conditions such as extreme weight loss due to morbid obesity, lipomas, lymphedema, and gynecomastia.

Lipo 360 cost
The cost of Lipo 360 can vary depending on geographic location, length of procedure, and surgeon expertise. At Jolie Plastic Surgery, the average price for this procedure is $3200.
Patients, who notice hanging or loose skin, as well as fatty problems, may need an additional surgery such as tummy tuck. They will feel more confident as they look their best and achieve full aesthetic goals.
Liposuction is not just for women. There is a popular procedure called abdominal etching, which combines liposuction and liposculpture for men. We perform this procedure at Jolie Plastic Surgery. Also known as six-pack liposculpture, this procedure can help men get abs instantly without having to work out for years. This non-evasive procedure can carve different shapes in the fat that covers the muscle. It can achieve definition in no time. General anesthesia is not required.
360-degree liposuction is an outpatient procedure, typically completed in a day. Some patients spend a few hours at the clinic, but usually they go home on the same day. The recovery process can be lengthier when a general anesthetic is used during the procedure. We suggest patients arrange for someone to drive them and make sure they get home safe. Patients should rest after the procedure so the body can recuperate faster. A compression garment can cover treatment areas after surgery. Compression garments or elastic bandages help control swelling and bruising. Temporary drains may also be placed in the incisions under the skin to eliminate excess fluids and blood.
Following lipo 360, doctors will take pain medicine orally as prescribed by the surgeon. Painkillers help alleviate the physical discomfort and swelling associated with this procedure. If the patient has a history of anemia, iron tablets will be prescribed to avoid extreme fatigue. Swelling and bruising are common in the stitched areas. Compression garments should help minimize the swelling. These garments are worn several weeks. Your surgeon may also recommend cold compresses to reduce swelling or to raise the area to redirect blood flow.
Liposuction is a lasting procedure; therefore, fat should not be deposited in areas where this surgical procedure was performed. However, patients can gain weight in other areas of the body where fat cells were not removed.
