Lipo 360 Recovery: Tips and FAQs

Lipo 360 Recovery Tips And FAQs

The typical lipo 360 recovery process is fairly easy and straightforward. This procedure is commonly performed, and patients are generally able to endure recovery very well.
With that said, every patient is different in terms of recovery. If you are someone who’s had liposuction 360 in addition to upper arm liposuction, inner thigh liposuction, chin liposuction (or other procedures), your recovery may be longer and more difficult than someone who’s only undergone 360 lipo alone.

Moreover, everyone heals at a different rate. Some young patients who are in great health will bounce back right away while older patients may take longer to fully heal. This is normal.

Below, we’ll go over the most common symptoms you can expect during your recovery from lipo 360, in addition to some key tips for a smoother healing process and answers to your most common 360 lipo recovery questions.

First, though! … Let’s explain what lipo 360 actually is and how it differs vs. other types of liposuction procedures we perform.

What Is Lipo 360?

Liposuction 360 is a surgical procedure that involves body sculpting all the way around the abdomen, using liposuction as the primary treatment. Stubborn fat is removed from the upper and lower tummy, the sides and flanks (“love handles”), and the entire back. This is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery phase and consistently excellent results.

The term “lipo 360” is really just a cosmetic surgery marketing term, and it actually originated with patients themselves. A traditional liposuction procedure is often performed around the entire midsection (360 degrees around). And some patients simply started calling this type of liposuction treatment “lipo 360” vs. other types of lipo. Today, plastic surgeons use the term as well!Recovery Time For Lipo 360

360 Liposuction Recovery: What to Expect

During your liposuction 360 recovery timeline, it’s common to be somewhat sore. Pain medication can be prescribed to help minimize your discomfort.

Patients need to take off about one week from work. But if you have a physically demanding job, you may need to take more time off.

Other common symptoms following liposuction 360 include swelling and bruising. Swelling will be the symptom that lasts the longest. For some patients, residual swelling can actually last up to a year, and this is when you’ll see your final results.

Your surgeon will set you up with all the info you need to know about your lipo 360 before and after the procedure.

Liposuction 360 Recovery Day by Day: Essential Tips

#1 – Wear your compression garment as directed.

Compression garments help to minimize swelling, promote proper healing, and prevent contour irregularities as you recover. Many patients don’t like them, but they are essential for achieving top-notch results.

#2 – Stay hydrated.

Basically, to stay hydrated drink plenty of water. This will nourish your body when it needs hydration the most.

As you heal, believe it or not, the more water you drink, the less fluid you will retain. This is good to reduce swelling and help you feel more comfortable overall.

#3 – Refrain from physical activity.

Patients need to take their doctor’s advice and take it easy for around one week, at least. During this time, rest, sleep, watch movies, chat on the phone, or read a good book. Don’t exercise, try to do things around the house, or make big plans. There will be time for all of these things once you are healed.

#4 – Be patient and have realistic expectations.

Many patients are eager to see their liposuction results now that they’ve had their fat removed from the treated area or surgical sites. This is perfectly natural, but it’s still important to take your recovery slow and focus on maintaining good overall health habits. Within a few weeks, you’ll see your results and be able to enjoy them day in and day out.

Who is a good candidate for lipo 360?

The best candidates for liposuction 360 are adult men and women who would like to sculpt their midsection, including their stomach, sides, flanks, and back. Lipo 360 removes stubborn fat from all the way around the midsection.

Patients should be in good physical health with realistic expectations. Most patients are at or near a stable, healthy weight for their sex, height, and age. It’s best to be a non-smoker prior to surgery as smoking can complicate your body’s ability to heal from surgery properly.

How much weight can I lose with lipo 360?

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is a type of body sculpting. Naturally, with fat removal, the number on the scale will likely go down over time.

However, if you have a large amount of weight you would like to lose, it’s best to do so by other means and to use lipo 360 afterward as a form of body sculpting.

What is the lipo 360 BBL recovery time like?

Whenever two or more cosmetic procedures are combined, the recovery time is going to be longer. This is simply because your body has endured more trauma, so it’s going to take longer to heal. Lipo 360 BBL recovery is going to be slightly longer, therefore, and you may have more soreness when compared with 360 lipo recovery alone.

What is the cost of lipo 360?

Lipo 360 costs are highly personalized. There is no standard estimate due to individual variations. Variations in price are dependent upon the type of treatment, number and size of areas being treated, length of procedure, surgeon’s experience, the location, and type of anesthesia needed.
