Nowadays, everyone wants to look good. Everyone wants to be Instagram-ready. There are a lot of choices out there. But one option stands out as the latest and best way to shape your body the way you like it: 360 Liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
It’s amazing! It is a useful option for fat loss. It could change your life, Liposuction is nothing new. An Italian gynecologist originally invented it in 1974.
Dr. Vicki Belo and the Belo Medical Group introduced the “tumescent liposuction” technique 28 years ago in the Philippines.
The Belo Medical Group has done at least 36,835 liposuctions to date and still counting. This experience is synonymous to good results, patient safety, and client satisfaction.
360 Liposuction is the signature fat removal and body contouring method of the Belo Medical Group.
Belo Medical Group’s 360 Liposuction is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure. It is performed using local anesthesia through a unique anesthetic technique called “Twilight Sedation.” This method lessens the risk from intra- and post-operative complications.
These methods are the reason why the surgery is a cut above traditional liposuctions that use general anesthesia and are limited in the areas it can treat.
360 Liposuction targets the body circumferentially rather than sectionally to create the ideal proportions. If you choose to flatten your tummy area, 360 Liposuction will also target the love handles and the lower back area.
On the arms, the whole circumference of the arms, including the wings area. Fat will be extracted from the front, back, and side area of the thighs.
The only one in the country
Belo Medical Group is the only one in the country that provides this method when removing fat surgically.
Such an approach is innovative and essential. Your body isn’t a flat surface like a painting; it’s a sculpture.
You need someone who pays attention to every detail, angle, and curve of your body and knows what to do to shape it correctly.
he key words are “symmetry” and “harmony.” You want your every part of your body to be in closest-to-perfect proportion to the others. 360 Liposuction can give you that.
But that’s not all. Belo’s 360° Liposuction utilizes other tried-and-tested state-of-the-art technologies to make sure you get the best results possible.
For one, 360 Liposuction melts fat via laser technology. A phone-cable thin metal cannula suctions of the liquified fat.
These techniques cause less trauma to your body, less bruising, and only tiny faint-colored incision scars. It’s also an efficient way to remove body fat and guarantees faster recovery.
Best of all, the whole procedure is virtually painless. At most, you will feel slight discomfort similar to when you do an intense workout.
On top of the 360 suction, you get a Bodytite treatment to tighten loose skin. This technology uses radiofrequency applied under the skin.
Recently, the Belo Medical Group revealed 360° Liposuction with model, host, and lifestyle vlogger Bianca Valerio— just in case you need more proof of how safe and effective it is.
What Areas Can be Treated by Belo’s 360° Liposuction?
360 Liposuction is for the whole abdomen, the arms, wings, back, thighs, and even the face and chin.
It is also crucial to note that 360 Liposuction will not eliminate cellulite. You may opt to avail of other procedures like Belo V-Contour, Endermologie, and Belo Unison to reduce cellulite.
Do I Need Any Other Procedures After Liposuction?
360° Liposuction is all you need in most scenarios. However, there are cases when there is loose skin from removing a large volume of fat that cannot be adequately treated by Bodytite. In these cases, a surgical tuck may be indicated, e.g., tummy tuck for the abdomen, arm tuck for the arms. Non-surgical alternatives are RF-based skin tightening, the best of which is currently Thermage®.
Evacuated fat can also be transplanted or relocated to other areas of the body such as the breasts or the hips. You can get these surgeries done at Belo Medical Group.
360 Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck
What’s the difference? A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure that is used to remove excess skin and fat, and also tighten loose abdominal muscles. Patients who undergo tummy tuck are often (1) women with a lot of excess skin and stretch marks after giving birth, (2) men and women who lost a lot of weight and with excess skin, and (3) women who have a C-section scar and extra skin.
Compared to 360 Liposuction, a tummy tuck is a significant procedure that requires general anesthesia. Under the right hands, it is also a safe procedure. The significant difference is that tummy tuck involves surgically incising a section of the abdomen, removal of the excess skin and fat, and redraping and suturing of the skin afterward. Additionally, you can only treat the front of the waist area.
360 Liposuction first starts with melting your fat before suctioning it out of your body. If you flatten one area without sculpting the surrounding areas, you’re not going to get the figure you want. Think of how compression garments flatten your abdomen but also push out your hips and breasts.
Sometimes, in exceptional cases, a tummy tuck and 360° Liposuction can be done together.
Am I A Good Candidate for Liposuction 360?
Do you have fat and out-of-shape areas on your body that is bothering you? If you can pinch at least an inch of fat on your waist, or have flabby arms that bounce and jiggle when you run or jump, or thighs that are out of proportion to your upper body, then you might be a candidate for 360° Liposuction. Fat is hard to remove by exercise and dieting alone and can be very frustrating.
If you are considering this procedure, note that though this is a minimally-invasive surgery, it is still a form of surgery nonetheless. Therefore, you must be in good health before you get this done.
Individuals with blood flow problems, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid problems, or a weak immune system cannot undergo the procedure.
In order to make sure you don’t have any problems pre-surgery, you’re required to take blood and lung tests, and an X-ray. An independent doctor outside the Belo Medical Group should give the clearance over the results for the liposuction.
You must also disclose if you are taking any medications. The doctors at Belo give utmost importance to your safety. It would be wise to disclose any health problems you have and any drugs or medications you are taking.
Women are required to take a pregnancy test before undergoing the procedure.
Getting closer to the big day
Once you have cleared results, you will receive the date of your surgery once you for liposuction.
The liposuction surgeon plans and draws a map of where they are removing the fat before the surgery.
An intravenous sedative is administered to make you sleep. The targeted area will is infused with local anesthesia.
After all these steps, your surgeon will now perform the procedure.
360 Liposuction is a relatively short procedure, typically done in four to five hours. You will go home on the same day. Only in rare instances will you be required to stay overnight to monitor your recovery.

How Much Fat Can 360 ° Liposuction Remove?
360 Liposuction is an inch-reducing procedure and not a weight-reducing one. Remember that one liter of fat is equivalent to about 1 pound of fat.
If we were to suction four to five liters of fat would from your tummy area, this is only equivalent to 10 pounds of weight loss.
However, your body is well contoured.
