What is Lipo 360?
Lipo 360 is a cosmetic surgery that can help you achieve your dream body by targeting stubborn fat deposits in the entire midsection, including the abdomen, waistline, back, and flanks. Unlike traditional liposuction, which only targets one specific area, Lipo 360 is a comprehensive solution that results in a more sculpted and toned appearance of your overall body. The procedure involves using advanced liposuction techniques to suction out excess fat gently. The term “360” refers to the fact that the entire midsection is treated. It is an effective solution for individuals who struggle with stubborn fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise.
Lipo 360 is performed using the tumescent liposuction technique. This plastic surgery procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Anesthesia – Before the procedure, the patient will be given anesthesia to ensure their comfort during the surgery. Typically, general anesthesia or local anesthesia in combination with sedation is used.
- Incisions – Small incisions are made in the skin to insert the cannula.
- Injection of the Tumescent Solution – A solution containing saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine is injected into the treatment area to numb the area, minimize bleeding, and loosen the fat cells.
- Suctioning of Fat – The surgeon will use the cannula to suction out the fat cells from the treatment area using a back-and-forth motion.
- Closing the Incisions – Once the fat has been removed, the incisions are closed using sutures or adhesive strips.
Lipo 360 can target and reshape multiple areas of the body. Some of the most commonly targeted areas include:
- Hips and love handle
In addition to the Lipo 360 procedure, we offer several add-on surgical procedures at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery to help patients achieve their desired results. Two popular options are Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a procedure that involves taking fat from other areas of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance their size and shape.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the abdominal area and tightens the underlying muscles to create a smoother, flatter abdomen. The procedure can be combined with liposuction to remove stubborn fat from the area and create more dramatic results.
A good candidate for Lipo 360 is someone who is in overall good health, has good skin elasticity, and has realistic expectations for the procedure’s outcome. Candidates should also have specific areas of the body they want to target with the Lipo 360 procedure.
The contraindications for Lipo 360 include pregnancy, breastfeeding, active infections, and certain medical conditions that can affect the healing process.
It is important to note that Lipo 360 is not a weight-loss solution, and candidates should be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing the procedure.
Compared to traditional liposuction, Lipo 360 offers several advantages.
For one, Lipo 360 targets the entire midsection, including the waistline, flanks, and lower back, which helps create a more contoured, hourglass figure.
Additionally, the procedure allows for more precise removal of fat, which slims the entire torso and results in a smoother and more natural-looking outcome.
Lipo 360 also achieves better results than other body contouring procedures because it addresses multiple areas of the body in one procedure, resulting in a more comprehensive transformation.
After the procedure, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and compression garments. It is essential to rest and avoid strenuous activity for several weeks to allow for proper healing.
The recovery period for Lipo 360 varies for each individual but typically takes about two to three weeks. During this time, it is important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon, including wearing compression garments and attending follow-up appointments.
Tips for a successful recovery include staying hydrated, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest, and avoiding smoking and alcohol. Our surgeon will also provide specific instructions on caring for the incision sites and managing any discomfort.
The cost of Lipo 360 can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and the specific areas being targeted. However, the price typically includes the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, facility fees, and any necessary follow-up appointments. On average, the cost of Lipo 360 in New York varies from $5,000 to $15,000.
At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo 360 can be a considerable financial commitment for some patients. That’s why we offer financing options through CareCredit and Alphaeon. These companies provide flexible payment plans with affordable monthly payments and competitive interest rates to make the procedure more accessible and affordable for our patients.
To prepare for Lipo 360, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly in the weeks leading up to the procedure. It is also important to stop smoking and avoid taking certain medications and supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding.
During the consultation with our surgeon, you can expect to discuss your medical history, expectations for the procedure’s outcome, and any concerns you may have. Our surgeon will also provide specific instructions on preparing for the procedure, including any medications you should avoid.

What is Lipo 360, and how does it differ from traditional liposuction?
Lipo 360 is a comprehensive liposuction procedure that targets the entire body’s midsection, including the waistline, back, and flanks. It differs from traditional liposuction in that it addresses multiple areas of the body in one procedure.
How effective is Lipo 360 for fat removal from the body?
Lipo 360 is considered highly effective for removing excess fat from the body, resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. However, the amount of fat that can be safely removed depends on the patient’s needs and goals.
Is Lipo 360 a safe and reliable way to achieve a slimmer, more toned appearance?
When performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, Lipo 360 is generally considered a safe and reliable way to achieve a more attractive body contour. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications to consider, which should be discussed with your surgeon during your consultation.
How long does it take to see results after a Lipo 360 procedure?
Results from Lipo 360 can typically be seen within a few weeks following the procedure, with optimal results becoming visible after several months.
What areas of the body can be treated with Lipo 360, and how much fat can be removed?
Lipo 360 can treat various areas of the midsection of the body, including the abdomen, waist, and flanks. The amount of fat that can be safely removed will depend on several factors, including the patient’s overall health and body composition.
Is Lipo 360 a permanent solution for removing excess fat, or can fat cells regenerate over time?
Lipo 360 is not a permanent solution for removing excess fat, as fat cells can still regenerate over time if the patient does not maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. However, the unwanted fat cells that are removed during the procedure will not return.
Can Lipo 360 be combined with other cosmetic procedures for even better results?
For even more dramatic results, Lipo 360 can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a tummy tuck or a Brazilian butt lift. Again, your surgeon can help determine which procedures are right for you based on your individual needs and goals.
What are the risks and side effects of Lipo 360?
Lipo 360, like any other surgical procedure, comes with potential risks and side effects. These include bleeding, infection, fluid accumulation, skin necrosis, and blood clots. These side effects are typically temporary and resolve within a few weeks after the procedure. However, following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions is essential to minimize the risk of complications and ensure a successful recovery.
