The technique combines such procedures as Lipoabdominoplasty with Liposculpture of the flanks and back performed in a carefully planned circumferential manner to create aesthetically pleasing new body contours for our patients. Additional procedures such Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift procedures plus Buttock Augmentation through fat grafting provide the finishing touches to the 360 Degree approach.
Patients presenting for correction of truncal body contour issues never have a one dimensional problem. Weight gain, aging changes and previous childbirth leave our patients with undesirable changes to the body that are truly circumferential in nature and must be approached in a like manner. Trying to correct these circumferential issues by simply performing a conventional abdominoplasty or breast augmentation usually proves grossly inadequate to achieve the desires goals for most of my patients.
Patients who present to my practice with desires to solve body contour problems are carefully evaluated during an initial consolation. I try to listen very attentively to understand each individual patients priorities and goals. Then, with each patient’s help a comprehensive treatment plan is develop in order to best achieve the patient’s best possible surgical result. Prior to surgery the areas to undergo treatment are extensively photographed from multiple angles to aid in finalizing the patient’s surgical game plan. Copies of the photographs are later made into composite before and after prints for patients to be able to document there treatment results.
In the operating room the comprehensive 360 degree plan is executed blending abdominal, flank ,back, buttock and breast recontouring procedures in a fluid manor to achieve a superior final surgical result.
In our 360 New Degree photo gallery I have posted numerous patient case studies to demonstrate the power of this comprehensive 360 degree approach. Patient before and after results are presented from numerous angles to help better document their aesthetic improvements.
Why consider combined procedures?
If you are like many moms, you are probably interested in improving more than one area of your body, such as your breasts and your tummy. However, you might be worried about the time away from work and family. By combining multiple procedures like breast augmentation and a tummy tuck in one operation, you can get the results you want with only one recovery period. It also saves you money since you pay only once for anesthesia, medications, and facility fees. Plus, there’s the added perk of seeing your total transformation sooner and at once, rather than in stages.
