LIPO 360 Phoenix
Everything You Need to Know About Lipo 360
Liposuction 360 is a popular term and one of the most sought-after sculpting, fat removal procedures. The outpatient liposuction procedure involves removing fat all-around your midsection to give you an hourglass shape. This cosmetic surgery uses tumescent liposuction (under the skin) in 4 specific areas. The doctor removes subcutaneous fat from the abdomen, lower back, flanks (love handles), and waist.
Why is Phoenix Liposuction Lipo 360 different?
Local anesthesia is injected directly into the target area, avoiding costly hospitalization. The contouring procedure uses the SmartLipo Triplex Laser offering better results than traditional liposuction. The added contour procedure helps to restore a more youthful and sexy appearance to the female body.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Women concerned about their body shape and who want to remove excess fat are excellent candidates for 360-degree liposuction.
Mommy makeovers often include 360-degree lipo as part of a body contour 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. You should be in good health and close to your ideal weight. This procedure is not a weight loss surgery. It is a body contouring procedure that helps redefine your body shape.
Lipo 360 can give you:
- A flat or tighter stomach
- More visible abdominal muscles
- A lower back that looks curvier
- Reduced love handles
- Elimination of stubborn areas of fat

What happens on the day of your surgery?
Wear loose clothing that is easy to remove and put on
Make sure you have organized transport to and from the clinic
You will be meeting with your surgeon to review your pre-op tests, discuss the procedure, and answer any last-minute questions you may have.
The cosmetic surgeon may choose to draw on your body the areas on which he will perform lipo.
You will receive mild sedation to make it a more pleasant experience.
Tumescent liposuction does not require general anesthesia, which allows you to talk to your surgeon during the whole procedure.
The surgeon will start with small incisions. He injects a combination of lidocaine, sodium bicarbonate, and epinephrine mixed in a Saline solution to numb the areas of your procedure.
The doctor will then insert a cannula to access the fat deposits:
If you choose to have a fat transfer to other areas like the popular Brazilian butt lift, the fat cells will be extracted, cleaned, and immediately reinjected to increase their survival chance.
If you do not avail yourself of a fat transfer, the cannula is equipped with a laser fiber that will liquefy the fat and remove the fat cells. They will be sucked out, and the body will expel the remaining tissue over time. The surgeon can utilize the SmartLipo Triplex laser during the surgery so he can achieve superior skin tightening. The body will create new collagen, and the skin will tighten a few weeks after the surgery.
As part of the surgery, the doctor may perform some liposculpture to give you precisely the look you want.
After your surgery, you will receive a follow-up appointment and contact info.
It is a good idea to have somebody stay with you or be in close contact the night after the surgery.
What is the recovery time after the procedure?
Most patients experience some discomfort after the fat removal procedure for a few days. The numbness or pain usually decreases after the second or third day. We recommend that you rest at least two days following 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 tiny incisions will heal and disappear in a few days.
A few days later, you will have a post-op check-up to see your progress.
Avoid any major workout for at least three weeks.

Recycle the fat!
We highly recommend that you discuss a fat transfer procedure in conjunction with your liposuction surgery. Trendy cosmetic procedures include BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift), Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation, and gluteus augmentation.
What is the cost of the procedure?
The procedure costs vary depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the patient’s size. The procedure cost starts at $5500. Larger patients that require more work and contouring are more expensive. Fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) or breast augmentation can also be added to this procedure for even greater body enhancing results! Additional costs will apply.
Does having a prior C-Section matter?
A lot of our patients have had prior C-sections. We can make 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.
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 Phoenix Liposuction, your safety is our main concern, and we do everything pre-operatively to make sure you are an appropriate candidate.
What is the difference between Lipo 360 and a tummy tuck?
Both are considered cosmetic surgery. Lipo 360 is the removal of fat around your midsection. A Tummy tuck is the removal of fat and skin.
