Lipo 360

Lipo 360 in Seattle & Bellevue

What is Lipo 360?

Liposuction 360 is a comprehensive liposuction procedure that targets the entire torso circumferentially in one single procedure. Many patients have excess fat in the abdomen, waist, and back. If only the abdomen is treated in such patients, it will result in an disproportional contour in relation to the other areas and can even accentuate the fat in the untreated areas, making them appear larger once the abdomen is smaller. By treating the entire torso all the way around (360 degrees) in one procedure, Lipo 360 allows patients to achieve a flat abdomen, small waistline, and sculpted back, resulting in an amazing new figure with all areas in perfect proportion to each other.

Your Lipo 360 Consultation

With her keen eye for aesthetic detail as well as her vast appreciation of the ideal body shape and proportions in both women and men, Dr. Precht is a specialist in Liposuction 360. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Precht will listen to your areas of concern and your individual body goals. After a thorough examination, she will explain which areas should be treated to achieve your goals while also maintaining proper proportions, so that you have excellent and natural-looking results. Lipo 360 allows patients to shrink 360 degrees in one session!

What areas are treated in a Lipo 360 procedure?

Depending on your unique body shape and goals, Dr. Precht will recommend which areas should be treated for the best results. Lipo 360 usually includes liposuction of:

  • the entire abdomen (upper, middle, and lower abdomen)
  • the pubic area (mons pubis)
  • the love handles (outer hips and hips)
  • the waist
  • the upper back

Because of the importance of maintaining proportions and smooth contours, the armpit area (axilla) is often treated as well since this area is adjacent to the waist and the back which will be significantly smaller after Lipo 360.

VASER Lipo 360

Instead of using the sharp instruments and aggressive suctioning associated with traditional liposuction, Dr. Precht performs VASER Lipo, the most technologically advanced method of liposuction and body contouring available today. VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive method of fat removal that allows Dr. Precht to remove the most fat for superior results, while our patients have much shorter recovery times and return to normal activities quickly.

Since general anesthesia is not required for VASER Lipo 360, your recovery from the anesthesia aspect of the procedure will also be much faster. During your procedure, you will be closely monitored by Dr. Precht’s excellent anesthesia team who will administer IV medications so that you will sleep peacefully throughout the procedure. This allows Dr. Precht to remove the maximum amount of fat from the treated areas to provide you with the most dramatic results, while ensuring a comfortable, pain-free procedure for you. Most patients report feeling like they took a short nap and the procedure was over!

The initial phase of the procedure involves the use of tumescent fluid, an anesthetic solution injected under the skin that produces a numbing effect and prevents bleeding, making liposuction extremely safe. After the tumescent fluid is introduced, a tiny VASER probe that emits ultrasonic energy at its tip dislodges the fat from the surrounding tissue, while leaving vital structures unharmed. The fat is then removed via tiny tubes called micro-cannulas, and collected into canisters that the patient can view when the procedure is concluded.

Benefits of Lipo 360

Treating the entire torso (abdomen, waist, and back) at the same time allows patients to achieve a completely new figure in just one visit! Furthermore, treating multiple areas at once keeps the cost down, as there is only one facility fee and one anesthesia fee per procedure. Other benefits include having only one anesthetic, one recovery period, and one period of time wearing the postoperative garment which will compress all treated areas.

Lipo 360 Cost

The cost of Lipo 360 depends on the number of areas treated as well as the length of time and complexity of the procedure. Additionally, the cost of liposuction in general depends on the qualification and expertise of the surgeon performing the procedure. The cost of Lipo 360 ranges from approximately $12,000-$18,000, and includes the facility free, anesthesia fee, the postoperative garments, and all postoperative visits. After discussing your body goals with Dr. Precht during your consultation, an individualized treatment plan will be created that will allow you to achieve your desired results. You will then be given a financial quote, as well as financing options if interested.
