Lipo 360° is becoming an extremely popular surgery for women looking to enhance their overall midsection. This procedure helps eliminate areas of extra fat deposit from multiple areas of the midsection to achieve a more comprehensive and proportional appearance. Lipo 360° is not meant to be a quick fix for fat loss, but it can help contour and shape areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. Many liposuction patients have already lost weight with diet and exercise but are frustrated with specific areas of fat that won’t go away. This procedure helps create a more smooth and defined midsection.

Dr. Oser will perform your Lipo 360° on an outpatient basis. Dr. Oser will make discrete incisions in the areas where fat will be removed. He will place a small microcannula in the incision and gently vacuum out areas of fat. Depending on the size of the overall areas to be treated, the procedure may take several hours.
After the procedure, some redness, swelling, bruising and discomfort may commonly occur. You will wear compression garments to reduce swelling and maintain healing. Most patients can return to work in a week and resume normal activity after four weeks. It takes about six weeks for all swelling to diminish.
Lipo 360° removes fat deposits from several areas of your midsection, yielding a more natural looking contoured figure. Patients are happy with their results and enjoy a slimmer and tighter figure all around. It is a very popular plastic surgery procedure since it defines and enhances a more natural look to the body.
