Lipo 360 Austin, TX, is an advanced form of liposuction that goes beyond the limitations of traditional methods, offering a comprehensive approach to body contouring. Lipo 360 targets the entire midsection to create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing silhouette. Unlike conventional liposuction, which focuses on isolated areas, Lipo 360 provides a 360-degree treatment, ensuring a balanced and proportionate result. This procedure is not just about removing localized fat deposits; it’s about reshaping and enhancing the overall body structure, offering patients a path to achieve their desired body shape with more uniform and natural-looking outcomes.

WHAT IS 360 LIPOSUCTION?

360 Liposuction, often referred to as Lipo 360, is an extensive body contouring procedure that targets multiple areas of the body to achieve a more defined and harmonious appearance. Unlike traditional liposuction, which typically focuses 
on a single site, Lipo 360 encompasses the entire midsection – including the abdomen, waist, flanks, and lower back. This approach allows for a circumferential reshaping of the torso, offering a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing result.


The procedure involves using advanced liposuction techniques to treat localized fat deposits from these areas. By doing so, it enhances the natural contours of the body and can significantly improve the overall silhouette. Lipo 360 is particularly popular among individuals seeking a more dramatic transformation as it provides a 360-degree improvement rather than isolated spot reduction.

How Does 360
Liposuction WORK ?

360 Liposuction surgery is a sophisticated procedure that involves 
the strategic removal of fat from various parts of the midsection to achieve a harmonious, sculpted appearance. A small cannula is inserted through 
the incisions to facilitate fat removal. In this process, either power-assisted 
or laser-assisted liposuction techniques may be employed to enhance 
the efficiency and precision of the procedure.


With power-assisted liposuction, the cannula is connected to a device that causes it to vibrate rapidly. This vibration gently loosens the excess fat cells through controlled back-and-forth motions, effectively breaking up the fat cells without harming surrounding tissues.


In laser-assisted liposuction, a laser device is strategically used to liquefy fat cells before removal. This technique is particularly beneficial for effectively loosening the fat and addressing concerns of loose skin. The energy from the laser focuses on the fat cells and encourages collagen production in the skin, resulting in a skin-tightening effect. Laser-assisted liposuction is an ideal choice for patients seeking to address excess fat and skin laxity, resulting in a more defined and toned physique.


After the fat cells have been loosened or liquefied, they are aspirated out of the body using a surgical vacuum or a syringe that is linked to the cannula. The surgeon meticulously works around the entire midsection – the abdomen, waist, flanks, and lower back – ensuring that fat removal is even and aligns with the body’s natural contours.

The 360 Liposuction Procedure | SmartLipo

At Aspira Plastic Surgery, the Liposuction 360 procedure using SmartLipo is led by the skilled hands of Dr. Venkata Erella. This surgical procedure is meticulously tailored to each patient, ensuring results that transform and harmonize with the individual’s natural body contours.

Initial Consultation and Personalized Planning

The procedure begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Erella. He thoroughly evaluates each patient's body structure, discusses their aesthetic aspirations, and crafts a personalized treatment plan. This initial step is pivotal in setting realistic expectations and charting the course for optimal outcomes.

Awake Liposuction or Tumescent Technique

Dr. Erella employs tumescent liposuction, a technique often performed under local anesthesia that involves the patient being conscious but comfortably numbed. This is achieved by infusing a tumescent solution into the targeted area. The solution contains saline, lidocaine (an anesthetic), and epinephrine (to reduce bleeding and bruising).  One of the significant advantages of this approach, often referred to as awake liposuction, is the ability for patients to provide real-time feedback during the procedure. This interactive process can be crucial in achieving optimal sculpting and symmetry, as Dr. Erella can make adjustments based on the patient's input and immediate response.

SmartLipo or Laser-Assisted Liposuction

Dr. Erella employs SmartLipo, a cutting-edge laser-assisted liposuction technique that significantly boosts the efficiency of fat removal. This method utilizes a specialized laser device that targets and liquefies fat cells, which is particularly effective in areas with dense fat. The liquefied fat is extracted using a vibrating cannula, allowing a more controlled and precise extraction. The use of laser technology in this process also aids in skin tightening, contributing to a more sculpted and defined body shape post-procedure.

360 lipo recovery & Results

RECOVERY AND RESULTS

Undergoing Lipo 360 marks a significant step towards a more contoured and aesthetically pleasing body shape, with recovery being a crucial aspect of achieving a satisfying outcome. After the procedure, patients generally experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which are typical aspects of the recovery process. Managing pain is usually straightforward, with either prescribed or over-the-counter medication as recommended by Dr. Erella.

An essential part of recovery involves wearing compression garments for several weeks, which aid in reducing swelling, supporting treated areas, and facilitating skin retraction. During the initial recovery period, patients must rest and avoid strenuous activities, like heavy lifting or intense workouts, for a few weeks. Light walking, however, is beneficial and encouraged to aid in circulation. Regular follow-up appointments are arranged to oversee the healing process and facilitate a smooth recovery, ensuring the best possible outcome from the Lipo 360 procedure.

After Lipo 360, initial changes are often visible immediately, but the final results typically emerge over 3 to 6 months as swelling decreases. Most patients see noticeable improvements within weeks. The longevity of these results largely depends on maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. Patience and following post-operative instructions are crucial to achieving and sustaining the desired body contour.

Who is the Right Candidate for 360 Lipo?

Ideal candidates for 360 Lipo must be:

In good overall health to minimize complications and promote 
a smoother recovery process.
At or near their ideal body weight, Lipo 360 is intended to remove stubborn fat deposits rather than achieve significant weight loss.
Realistic in their expectations about what the procedure can and cannot achieve.
Possessing good skin elasticity, which is crucial for adapting well to the body’s new contours post-surgery.
Health considerations for 360 Liposuction include avoiding candidates with chronic conditions like heart disease or diabetes, blood clotting disorders, and severe obesity due to higher surgical risks and complications. Pregnant women should wait until after childbirth and breastfeeding. Additionally, those seeking dramatic weight loss or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle are not suitable candidates.

Cost of Lipo 360 in Austin, TX

The cost of Lipo 360 varies widely, influenced by factors such as the complexity of the procedure, how much fat will be removed, 
and any additional treatments such as liposuction of the inner and outer thighs or tummy tuck. The Lipo 360 cost can range from approximately $5,000 to $12,000. To obtain a tailored cost estimate for Lipo 360, patients are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Erella at Aspira Plastic Surgery in Austin, TX.
