High-BMI Lipo 360 in Atlanta, GA

Lipo 360 is a liposuction procedure that removes fat to create a more hourglass contour around the waist. Since this area encircles the entire midsection 360 degrees, it was nicknamed lipo 360. While it may sound like a special surgical technique, at its core, it's simply liposuction surgery meant to address multiple "problem" areas at once, including the stomach, flanks, and back.

As a body-positive surgical practice, we must note that patients with higher BMIs can qualify for circumferential liposuction. However, they may require high-BMI lipo to get the results they desire. Dr. Abboushi and Dr. Singh specialize in plus-size plastic surgery, including tummy tucks, and work closely with their patients to ensure they meet their surgical goals.

What Are the Benefits of High-BMI Lipo 360?

Often times having a high BMI can disqualify you from certain procedures. Not with High-BMI Lipo 360 at Panacea Plastic Surgery. This procedure allows our patients in Atlanta, GA with a higher-than-average BMI to achieve their weight loss goals. The benefits of High-BMI Lipo 360 include:

  • Removes unwanted fat from the waist
  • Gets results where diet and exercise have not
  • Trims and slims the shape
  • Downtime is small
  • Enhances self-perception and confidence
  • Can be used for patients with higher BMIs

One of the most important considerations for anyone researching whether lipo 360 is right for them should be their skin elasticity. While circumferential liposuction can have incredible results for the right candidate, for those whose skin is loose or whose skin doesn’t quickly recover, most forms of liposuction may not be the right choice, at least on their own without complementary plastic surgery procedures like tummy tucks.

There is no difference between lipo 360 and circumferential liposuction. They are the same procedure and address the same areas.

Wonderful life changing experience. Very pleased with lipo results!! I highly recommend Panaecea, you will be in great hands.

How long is the recovery process after high-BMI lipo 360?

The recovery process after a high-BMI lipo 360 typically varies from patient to patient, but it generally spans several weeks. Most patients can expect to return to light activities within a few days to a week, while full recovery and the final results may take several months to become apparent. It's important for patients to follow Dr. Abboushi and Dr. Singh's guidelines closely during this period to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Are there specific risks associated with high-BMI lipo 360?

High-BMI lipo 360 does carry specific risks. These include a higher likelihood of complications such as infection, longer healing times, and the potential for uneven results. Patients with a high BMI also face increased risks during anesthesia, making thorough pre-operative assessment at Panacea crucial.

How do I maintain the great results I get from circumferential liposuction?

Although patients see visible results after circumferential liposuction, swelling may take several months to subside and final contours to take shape. Periodic check-ups may be necessary to ensure proper healing. Proper hydration and a balanced diet can help the recovery process. It is also important to avoid direct sun exposure on incision sites. Our team also will provide some gentle skin care tips. A support system and communication with your surgeon will be vital during recovery.

Will circumferential liposuction tighten my skin?

No. Lipo 360 does not tighten loose skin or address laxity in any way. Liposuction of any kind cannot tighten skin. Dr. Singh and Dr. Abboushi see many patients for circumferential liposuction consultations who are surprised to learn that lipo alone cannot achieve their desired results. Liposuction is unlikely to contour the area effectively whenever loose skin is present. Suppose a sizeable fat volume needs to be removed without excellent skin elasticity. In that case, the desired contour may not be possible unless combined with other surgeries, like body lifts or circumferential tummy tucks.

What other plastic surgery procedures can be performed with lipo 360?

Common plastic surgeries that can work beautifully for those who require skin tightening and excision/removal to achieve the best results with lipo 360 include:

  • Standard abdominoplasty
  • Plus-sized tummy tucks
  • Extended tummy tucks
  • Circumferential abdominoplasty

Can plus-size patients with higher BMIs qualify for lipo 360?

Yes. In order to qualify for plus-size lipo 360, or any other high-BMI plastic surgery procedure, patients must be:

  • In excellent physical and emotional health
  • Non-smokers
  • At a stable body weight
  • Not pregnant or planning to become pregnant
  • Have medical clearance from their primary care provider

Patients who fall into the overweight or obese BMI categories generally require high-BMI liposuction to get the results they want. Dr. Abboushi and Dr. Singh both perform high-BMI lipo, consulting closely with their patients to understand exactly what their goals are and what results they can expect when choosing circumferential lipo.

What does lipo 360 cost?

The price of 360 liposuction varies depending on how much fat must be removed and the number of areas required to be treated to obtain the desired results. Pricing depends on Dr. Singh's or Dr. Abboushi's examination, but the average cost of lipo 360 is between $8,000-$10,000. High-BMI lipo 360 for plus-sized patients starts at approximately $14,000.

Pricing includes hospital fees, pre- and post-operative care, and any needed follow-up appointments. Please note that these are averages, and the only way to know what a specific procedure will cost is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Singh or Dr. Abboushi.
