Many women do their best to stay in shape. They spend time at the gym, eat a healthy diet, and they do everything possible to look their best. They may be maintaining a healthy weight and BMI, but they may still be unhappy with the way their body looks.
Sometimes there are areas of our bodies that are unresponsive to even the most rigorous exercise regime and accumulations of stubborn fat that just won’t budge. It can also be frustrating when you are attempting to use exercise to contour certain areas of your body, such as your buttocks, but are not achieving the results you desire.
The good news is that the advancements in cosmetic procedures over the years have yielded safe and effective techniques that can give you the body you desire. Today we are going to talk about two of these procedures: liposuction 360 and BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift).
Each on its own delivers excellent results, but when you combine a Brazilian butt lift with 360 lipo, the effect is sensational.
Why It Makes Sense To Combine 360 lipo And BBL
Combining a BBL with Lipo 360 has many benefits, including:
- Can deliver the changes to your body that you are unable to get through diet and exercise;
- The combination of Lipo 360 and a BBL produces more dramatic results;
- Can enhance your self-confidence;
- It will save you time and money in the long run to combine these procedures.
There is a direct correlation between body image and self-esteem. Having a well-proportioned, desirable figure can help you feel confident and reflect the vitality, health, positivity, and sexuality.
Most women want an hourglass figure with a waist-to-hip ratio that creates a curvy hourglass shape. Unfortunately, achieving the desired volume and lift of the buttocks, as well as a smaller waist, often necessitates more than just a regular exercise routine. Also, exercising can make hip dips even more prominent.
Combining the procedures means you get the visible, dramatic results you desire quickly. You would also only have to go through one recovery period, which would limit the time you would need to take off from work or your normal activities. Recovery from Lipo 360 takes about 4–6 weeks, and it is the same for a BBL, but surprisingly, when you combine the procedures, the recovery time is also 4–6 weeks.
How Much Do 360 Lipo And BBL Cost?
Combining these procedures can not only reduce recovery time but also save you money. Depending on the nature of the procedure, costs associated with the surgeon fee, operating facility, anesthesia, etc. will only need to be paid for once instead of twice if undergoing the procedures at different times.
Lipo 360 with BBl prices can vary based on several factors, including the technique used for the Lipo 360 procedure, the amount of fat and the areas to be treated, patient-specific factors, geographic location, etc.
The average price range of a BBL alone in Atlanta, Georgia, is $6,500–$10,000, and the average base price of Lipo 360 is $9,600. The exact price for your combined BBL and lipo 360 will be based on your exact procedure and will be determined at your consultation with Dr. Angelina. We are also happy to share details about the patient financing programs that are available.
What Does Lipo 360 Mean?
Lipo 360, also sometimes called 360° liposuction, is the term used when describing a procedure where liposuction is performed around the entire circumference of the midsection. This procedure removes excess fat from the abdomen, back, hips, flanks, and love handles and can shape and contour the waistline.
The actual liposuction procedure can be performed using different techniques such as Vaser, hydro, laser, or traditional liposuction, and when you hear the term “Lipo 360,” it refers to the area that is being treated.
Why Would Someone Have 360 Lipo?
Liposuction eliminates excess body fat in the area where it is performed. 360° lipo would benefit an individual who not only desires to look slimmer and leaner but also would like to have a more contoured midsection.
Performing liposuction around the entire circumference of the midsection allows the cosmetic surgeon to artistically sculpt the entire midsection to produce a smoother, sleeker appearance and accentuate natural curves.
When individuals gain weight, their fat cells get bigger and take up more space. Liposuction decreases the number of fat cells in a certain area, and the volume eliminated depends on the amount of excess fat that exists and the patient’s desired aesthetic goal. Once these fat cells are removed, the contour changes that result are permanent, as long as the current body weight is maintained.
If the patient’s skin still has sufficient elasticity, it may bounce back and mold to the new contours, but if the elasticity is poor or the skin is stretched out, it may involve an additional procedure or treatment to address the loose skin.
How Is Lipo 360 Performed?
Dr. Angelina Posteov, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon at SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, uses VASER liposuction to perform the lipo 360 procedure because of its gentle but effective fat removal capabilities. VASER (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) liposuction uses a special technique to remove the unwanted fat cells without causing them damage during the procedure, which makes it ideal if planning to transfer the fat for use with another procedure such as a BBL or breast augmentation.
The Vaser liposuction procedure begins with the administration of local anesthesia through a special numbing solution that is injected under the skin. Then the surgeon makes tiny incisions in the skin that are used to insert a small, thin tube-like instrument called a cannula. These are used to “vacuum” out the fat cells as they are shaken loose by the ultrasound energy emitted during Vaser liposuction.
Vaser liposuction is different from traditional liposuction in the way the fat cells are gathered. During Vaser, the cannula is held stationary, and the fat cells are gently vibrated loose and then gathered up by the cannula. During traditional liposuction, the cannula is used to loosen the fat cells through the action of running it back and forth across the area being treated, which knocks the fat cells loose, and then they are suctioned out by the cannula.
The Vaser procedure is gentler because the cannula is not moved around, so fat can be removed without disturbing or damaging any surrounding tissue, and the recovery time is much shorter. Vaser liposuction can target a very small area and minimize bruising, pain, and bleeding. There is also a lower risk of complications that will affect the aesthetic results.
An added bonus of using the Vaser technique is that it not only removes the unwanted fat but also tightens the surrounding skin at the same time and prompts the body to generate new collagen.
After the Vaser Lipo 360 procedure, patients will need to wear compression garments for 4–6 weeks to help minimize bruising and swelling during their recovery and provide the best aesthetic results.
What Is A BBL?
A BBL, or Brazilian buttock lift, is a procedure that can enhance your lower body proportions through modifications in the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks. It is not actually a “lift” and does not involve any type of implant; the enhancements are made through fat grafts that are injected into the buttocks to add volume to desired areas.
The fat that is injected into the buttocks is gathered through liposuction from other areas of the individual’s body. It is transferred from one place to another.In cases where the patient has a Brazilian buttock lift, 360-degree lipo is often used to remove fat from the midsection to be used to enhance the buttocks.
The fat is put through a sterilization process, and then it is injected into the buttocks and hips to add volume, shape, and projection.
Some of the benefits of a Brazilian butt lift include:
- Enhances the volume and projection of your buttocks;
- Improves your overall proportions by balancing your upper and lower bodies;
- Reduces fat deposits on your love handles, abdomen, and thighs as a side benefit;
- Makes you feel more youthful and can provide Increased self-assurance in social situations;
- Can enhance the way you look in your clothes;
- Provides fast and lasting results;
- Can eliminate hip dips.
