What is the difference between Lipo and Lipo 360?




Over recent times, a new procedure known as “Lipo 360” has risen considerably in popularity, and there have been a lot of questions and misunderstandings of what exactly can these do for you. They are extremely similar, but it all depends on your overall needs that will help you choose the procedure that is fitting for you and your wishes. Liposuction in general helps you to remove stubborn fa;, it won’t go away no matter all the exercise and dieting you undergo, it is actually one of the most performed procedures in the United States America, you are not alone, many other people have gone through hard times but everyone is able to overcome it, your problems are not minimal, so if it really bothers you, feel free to look for options to get something done such as a liposuction.


To get the entire grasp of choosing between these 2 procedures that share so many similarities. A lipo 360 is performed in the mid section of the body, at precisely 360 degrees, it helps to contour and sculpt the body, the areas that it might affect would be waist, torso, upper and lower abdominals, flanks on both sides and lower or/and mid-back. To reduce the fat in these areas the lipo uses a vacuum to target and suction the fat, accentuating the natural curves and other female features…

Ideal candidates for a 360 lipo have to be near their ideal weight, above the age 18, overall good health, non-smokers (or stop smoking 1-2 months prior to your surgery), and several areas of fat they wish to remove. Candidates should have good eating and exercising habits, to keep maintaining the results of the liposuction. Keep in mind liposuction isn’t a weight loss surgery, if you gain weight again your body will return to its former shape.

Lipo 360 is performed in various ways, since it includes a lot more areas that have been chosen by you and your surgeon beforehand, there are areas you may have the liposuction done but others are perfectly fine, it depends from body to body. Either way we can explain what there definitely be in your procedure: A small incision will be performed on local anesthesia, afterwards the surgeon will insert a hollow tube or cannula in the open to loosen the fat and then suck said fat with a vacuum. Once the swelling subsides you will definitely notice the improvement in your body. Recovery does take longer just as the procedure itself, so it is not recommended if you can’t take more than a certain days off work.

Traditional liposuction is a widely known procedure, these procedures also remove excess fat deposits around the body, even in some cases liposuction can promote skin tightening. It focuses on one area; it can be your stomach, your hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, and under the chin or face. The fat on these areas is usually the one that won’t go away no matter how strict your diet is or how often you exercise, they think they’re here to stay but we are here to say otherwise. Of course we won’t leave you without any fat at all, you’ll have a very small amount but it will be a dramatic difference, we can assure you that.

For the candidates there’s not much change, you need to have good health, near your ideal weight, one area of excess stubborn fat, above the age of 18, unhappiness with your body, and have stopped smoking 1 or 2 months prior to your surgery.

The procedure varies from where you want your liposuction done, but for an example we’ll explain if the liposuction would be performed on the abdomen. A small incision above the groin will be made, a device will be inserted and loosen the fat to then be vacuumed out. Depending on the fat it can take from 1 to 4 hours, 1 incision and local or general anesthesia are the ones used.


  • Remove excess fat from targeted areas in the body
  • Sculpt shape and body
  • Treat the fat that is resistant to exercise and diet
  • Reduce tummy bulges, saddle bags or love handles
  • Reduce enlarged male breasts


In short the 360 liposuction works in various areas of the body around the core (torso-mid back), to have the best curves and body shape from any perspective. Traditional liposuction targets precise areas in your body outside of the torso and mid back areas, it can even extend to facial procedures; even if these procedures might seem similar there’s a clear difference when it comes to time, recovery and obviously the results. If your workplace did not give you a lot of time to stand for your recovery, a traditional liposuction might be the best option.


If you are only unhappy with an area of your body that we have mentioned, you can go ahead and go for a traditional liposuction, depending on the person fat may reside just in one part of the body so a lipo 360 won’t be necessary. On the other hand, if you have excess fat in various areas, give lipo 360 a try and it won’t let you down! Both of these procedures are amazing and are proven to give the best results to those who undergo it, but this is just to help you make your mind in which of these to get and know exactly what you are getting.
