Slim the Entire Waistline with Lipo 360
While diet and exercise are important aspects of a healthy lifestyle, your ideal body shape may seem out of reach despite your best efforts. Lipo 360 in NYC can help you achieve a flatter midsection by targeting the abdomen, flanks, obliques, and mid-to-lower back in one procedure. Slimming down these troublesome areas can give you a more youthful-looking figure.
What makes Lipo 360 unique is its comprehensive approach. Rather than only targeting the abdomen, Lipo 360 can remove fat from the love handles, flanks, lower back, and upper back and bra area. Lipo 360 is often combined with other body contouring procedures, including Brazilian butt lift, mommy makeover, and tummy tuck. The fat removed with Lipo 360 can be used to add volume to the breasts and buttocks. Lipo 360 can also be combined with liposuction of the arms, neck, chin, and thighs to provide you transformative results.

Who is a good candidate for Lipo 360?
Patients experiencing extra fat around the midsection that are seeking to treat multiple areas are good candidates for Lipo 360. Lipo 360 is not a substitute for diet and exercise. The best candidates for Lipo 360 will be near their normal body weight. Lipo 360 may be an excellent option for patients who wish to shape and sculpt their body by removing localized areas of excess fat. Lipo 360 can be particularly helpful to treat areas that have not responded to traditional weight loss or exercise.* Dr. Levine will meet with you to discuss your goals and expectations, and help you determine which liposuction technique, or combination of techniques, would be right for you.

How is Lipo 360 performed?
Lipo 360 in NYC is performed by inserting a tiny cannula through a small incision. Once the cannula is inserted, Dr. Levine will begin removing unwanted fat through the cannula. He will perform this technique around the entire waistline 360 degrees to provide a slimmer, more symmetrical appearance. Following Lipo 360, fat can be utilized for a Brazilian butt lift . Lipo 360 is performed under twilight or general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
Can the fat removed from Lipo 360 be used for other body contouring procedures?
Yes. One of the most exciting benefits of lipo 360 is the ability to allow patients to remove fat from areas no longer desirable and transfer to areas you wish to enhance. Fat gently removed during liposuction is prepared and carefully reinjected into areas that may benefit from increased volume. Natural fat can reduce the signs of aging and restore youthful contours in the face, and volumize other areas, such as the buttocks.
Can Lipo 360 be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely. Lipo 360 is often combined with additional procedures to provide the best overall body contouring results. Lipo 360 is commonly combined with Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck, and breast enhancement surgery. Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedures or combination of procedures may best suit your specific needs.
How can I prepare for Lipo 360?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Levine will thoroughly examine areas of excess fat in order to determine the amount and distribution of fat, as well as the quality of skin elasticity. Dr. Levine will thoroughly discuss your goals and expectations, including possible risks and the best way to prepare for your surgery. He will let you know what to expect before, during, and after your procedure, and he will answer any questions that you may have.
What type of anesthesia will be used for Lipo 360?
Because Lipo 360 is performed throughout various parts of the midsection, general or twilight anesthesia is used for patient comfort.
