Liposuction, Marion, Ohio
Liposuction is among the most well-known cosmetic procedures, famous for its ability to create beautifully slim contours, helping patients around the world reach their aesthetic goals, and boost their overall confidence. Millions of men and women opt for this fat removal procedure to combat areas of stubborn fat that refuse to improve, even with lifestyle changes such as an exercise and diet regimen.
At Elite MedSpa, we offer Lipo 360 with our Fun Sculpting technique of liposuction, giving you sleek sculpting without the extensive downtime of traditional surgery.
Lipo 360 is a form of liposuction that refers to the area of the body being treated during the procedure. This cosmetic procedure method doesn’t indicate a certain brand or machine, but is if a patient receives liposuction on the abdomen, waist, and back, 360 degrees around the body, giving the technique its name.
This type of liposuction addresses the most common areas of concern, in the mid section of the body, making it an ideal choice for many in achieving their ideal figure.
Rebuild and reshape
This body contouring procedure is specialized for individual patients with goals to eliminate fat in the mid-section area to improve confidence when wearing a bikini, shirtless, and in form-fitting clothes. Lipo 360 provides instant improvements, as well as continual ones. As the skin tightens and further molds to your body post-procedure, you will begin to see your newly sculpted figure appear, revealing the final result.
An advantage to the Lipo 360 surgical procedure is that once the localized fat cells are removed, they are gone and will not come back. The reduction in body fat cells leaves you with a sleek and toned physique, while maintaining a natural look. Keeping consistent with a healthy diet and active lifestyle enhances your results and ensures they are long-term.
The primary goal of liposuction is to remove fat deposits from sectioned areas of the body. Depending on the amount of fat removal that is performed, this outpatient procedure generally takes about 1-2 hours to complete. It can be performed as a solo surgery or paired with other cosmetic procedures, such as a tummy tuck for enhanced results.
During the procedure, very small and precise incisions are made underneath the skin to give a channel for a small hollow tube, or cannula instrument, breaking apart the targeted pockets of fat. Once broken down, your treatment provider will carefully remove them to contour and design a smooth and defined aesthetic result.

Traditional liposuction can present a challenging recovery for patients that often results in discomfort the weeks following the surgery due to the manual force used to remove large amounts of fat. The initial 3 days can be the most challenging and patients often experience swelling, soreness, discomfort, and fluids draining.
At Elite MedSpa, we offer Fun Sculpting, a liposuction technique that uses vibration-assisted technology to gently dislodge fatty tissue while leaving the surrounding tissue healthy and intact. This minimally invasive type of liposuction warrants a quicker recovery time while providing comparable results to traditional liposuction surgery. There is less swelling, bruising, and minimal bleeding.
Most patients are able to resume normal activities within a week and experience significantly less pain and discomfort with this gentler approach.
Compression garments are beneficial following a liposuction procedure to help with tissue remodeling and to minimize swelling. Garments are to be worn for a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks following your liposuction procedure. It is crucial to continuously wear your compression garment to hold everything in place and provide longevity to your results.
You may resume work after the first week of recovery. It is important that you avoid strenuous exercise for the first 6 weeks after surgery; however, you may resume light physical activity a month post-surgery. You will start noticing optimal results within 1-3 months as your body settles into its final form.
