Liposuction is the medical process by which excess fat is removed from a problem area in the body. This target area can be one, or a combination of the following areas: chin, neck, arms, back, stomach, flanks, thighs and legs.

The fat is removed after a sterile solution of salt water and anesthetic is injected, this aids with fat removal and pain relief during the procedure. The suction procedure will then start. The surgeon starts by making small incisions in strategical areas, to minimize visibility of scarring, and inserts a cannula under the skin. The cannula is a small thin tube that acts as a vacuum to suck out the fat.

It is important to keep in mind that liposuction removes the fat cells under the skin and that the weight loss will be permanent if you maintain a balanced diet and, healthy lifestyle and make sure that you do not gain a large amount of weight.

A tummy tuck is more concerned with the removal of excess skin than it is with fat reduction. A tummy tuck, also known as am abdominoplasty, is a medical procedure performed on the stomach by cutting away excess or loose skin.

With the fat grafting method fat will be removed from another area on the body and transferred to the rear area to give you a naturally bigger looking backside. The fat grafting method is more temporary as the fat will start to dissolve gradually over the period of a year.

For more permanent results you can also opt for a butt implant. Butt implants can change and increase the shape of the buttocks and also tighten the skin around the area.

In general, liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that consists of removing fat cells from certain areas of the body. This results in slimmer, smoother contours, creating a more toned profile. The biggest difference between traditional liposuction and Lipo 360 is that while traditional liposuction focuses on a singular area at a time, Lipo 360 is able to target multiple regions of the abdomen simultaneously. Lipo 360 utilizes 360-degree, circumferential liposuction, effectively resulting in a more comprehensive and efficient procedure.

The main benefit Lipo 360 has over other forms of liposuction is that the focus of 360-degree liposuction lies in the end results. Traditional liposuction only addresses the total amount of fat that has been removed as opposed to the final proportions of the body. The finished profile and look isn’t the main objective when it comes to the traditional method. Circumferential liposuction also produces more comprehensive results for those who are looking to have a better shaped body in less time.

360 Liposuction is a liposuction procedure that encompasses all areas of the midsection, covering 360 degrees around. The corresponding areas that are able to undergo treatment include the abdominals, both upper and lower, the obliques, and the mid- to lower back and hiprolls. Lipo 360 offers the patient a range of possibilities in order to ensure that they get the custom results they desire.

With 360 liposuction, the recovery period is very short. Downtime is minimal and most patients will be able to resume their daily activities and duties in just several days. While only slight downtime is usually required for most people, with any surgical procedure, it can vary from person to person, so you should ask doctor An and follow all of his post-op instructions in order to receive the best results.
