What’s the Difference Between Traditional Lipo and 360 Lipo?

Stubborn belly fat that just won’t go away no matter how many vegetables you eat or sit-ups you do can be seriously frustrating. But should you consider liposuction to give your body the ideal shape you’re after? If you are at or near your goal weight and are simply looking to improve the contours of your body, then liposuction may be the right route to take. But there are many kinds of liposuction, not just the traditional option you might be familiar with.

During traditional liposuction, a surgeon will make an incision near the area being worked on and then insert a cannula that is connected to a vacuum. This cannula will suction out fat as well as fluids. The disadvantage of traditional lipo is that it can only work on one area at a time. So, if you’re looking to improve your midsection, you would only be able to work on your abdomen, waist, or back during each lipo procedure.

On the other hand, there is 360 lipo. This procedure can target the entire midsection—from the abdomen and waist to the upper and lower back—for a more well-rounded procedure that provides outstanding results. There are many ways to perform 360 lipo, and here at Tampa Surgical Arts, we use the revolutionary Vaserlipo® treatment that will sculpt, define, and shape your midsection into its ideal contour. Another treatment option we offer is J-Plasma, a skin-tightening procedure that can firm loose skin and give you the body you’ve been dreaming of.
