Unfortunately, not all fat responds the same to diet and exercise.

Visceral vs. Subcutaneous Fat

When you first start to tone and tighten your body, white visceral fat is what goes first. This fat is found around your internal organs. Visceral fat is what increases the risk of certain medical conditions, such as heart disease. Subcutaneous fat is the other type that affects your appearance. Fortunately, it does not pose the same health concerns as visceral fat, but it does create some unattractive lumps and bumps on your body. Subcutaneous fat does not respond well to diet and exercise, so we often recommend 360 Lipo to enhance the curves and contours of the body.

What is 360 Lipo?

Most liposuction procedures focus on a specific part of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, back, love handles, or buttocks. 360 Lipo takes a more holistic approach for toning and tightening your midsection. Rather than just targeting excess fat on the front or back, we consider your entire midsection, including the abdomen, hips, waist, and back.

Benefits of 360 Lipo

 While traditional liposuction can help significantly when you have isolated pockets of fat, the techniques may result in an uneven contour to the midsection. By using the 360 Lipo technique, we provide our patients with superior results compared to individual targeting of problem areas. The results look more uniform and natural.

Is 360 Lipo More Expensive Than Traditional Liposuction?

360 Lipo and traditional liposuction are performed in much the same way. Small incisions measuring 5 mm or less are made in your skin. A thin tube (cannula) is inserted through the incision, and the fat is removed. The key difference is the number of procedures that are needed for the same results. With traditional liposuction, you may need two or more procedures to target each individual area. With 360 Lipo, you achieve the same results with only one procedure. As a result, 360 Lipo is a more cost-effective solution for men and women who need fat removed from the front and back of their midsections.

What Does the Cost of 360 Lipo Include?

When you meet with Dr. Widenhouse for a 360 Lipo consultation, we provide a cost of the procedure based on your individual treatment plan. The cost will include anesthesia, fees for the surgeon and other medical staff, medications during the procedure, and other related fees. Although the treatment plan cost will include all known fees, there may be additional fees incurred during the procedure. These fees are typically related to unexpected circumstances during the actual procedure, such as locating extra fat that needs to be removed to achieve the desired results.
