While a tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction can flatten your stomach, it does not address other fat deposits on the sides and back. Many people have rolls on their waist or love handles above their hips that are resistant to diet and exercise. At Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, we offer the latest options in liposuction procedures, including Lipo 360.
What Is Lipo 360?
If you have fat stored around your midsection, including your stomach, sides and hips, Lipo 360 may be right for you. This is not a different type of liposuction procedure but a technique to reshape the lower torso 360 degrees. During this procedure, multiple incisions are made around the body to remove fat deposits from the abdomen, sides, love handles and lower back. The result is a slimmer midsection with better contouring to give you the shape you desire.
Another option for shrinking your midsection 360 degrees is SmoothSculpt. This is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency to dissolve fat cells and stimulate skin tightening. The procedure is non-invasive, using an external device to deliver RF energy into the fat layers and skin around the torso. The RF energy destroys the membranes of fat cells, which are absorbed by the body.
SmoothSculpt 360 can be an effective way to reshape and slim the abdomen, waist and love handles. The results are not immediate, but occur over the following weeks and months. Not only does the area shrink in size as the fat cells are dissolved, but the RF energy can stimulate collagen in the skin. This can tighten the skin for a more toned appearance over the next few months.
Both Lipo 360 and SmoothSculpt 360 can provide stunning results for slimming the stomach, sides and hips. SmoothSculpt has the added benefit of skin remodeling to tighten loose skin, plus it does not require the recovery time of liposuction surgery. However, Lipo 360 can remove more fat and provide quicker, more noticeable results for body contouring.
