What is A 360 Tummy Tuck?
A 360 tummy tuck, also known as a circumferential abdominoplasty, is a comprehensive body contouring procedure that addresses excess skin, fat deposits, and weakened abdominal muscles around the entire midsection.
Unlike traditional tummy tuck surgery, 360-degree combines a standard abdominoplasty with liposuction to address not only the front of the abdomen but also the flanks, hips, and lower back.
How Does 360 Tummy Tuck Work?
360 tummy tuck is an invasive procedure that is performed under anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision around the entire circumference of the body, extending from the hips to the back. The surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, and hips. Also, the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened to create a firmer, more defined abdomen.
After completing the procedure, your board-certified plastic surgeon will close the incision with sutures. Also, your surgeon will recommend you wear compression garments to support healing.

Recovery After 360 Tummy Tuck
Recovery from a 360 tummy tuck typically takes 4-5 weeks. You can expect pain, swelling, and bruising in the first 2-3 days. However, these symptoms gradually subside with proper rest and adherence to post-operative instructions. These instructions may include:
- Taking proper rest
- Wearing compression garments
- Avoiding strenuous activities
- Avoiding smoking
- Eat a well-balanced diet and stay hydrated
- Attend all the follow-up appointment

- Have excess skin and fat around their abdomen, hips, and back
- Desire a more contoured and toned midsection

Benefits of 360 Tummy Tuck
The 360 tummy tuck has several advantages, making it a great option for anyone looking for a whole-body change. Its benefits include:
- Enhanced Body Contour: The procedure effectively removes excess skin and fat, resulting in a more defined waistline, smoother hips, and a flatter abdomen.
- Improved Muscle Tone: The tightening of abdominal muscles enhances core strength and supports a more sculpted appearance.
- Reduced Bulges and Love Handles: Liposuction with 360 tummy tuck eliminates love handles, back rolls, and other bulges that can interfere with a sleek shape.
- Enhanced Self-Confidence: A toned and contoured midsection can boost self-esteem and confidence, promoting a more positive body image.
360 Tummy Tuck – What to Expect?
Immediately after the procedure, you will likely experience pain, which can be managed with medication. Drainage tubes may be placed to collect excess fluids, and you will need to wear a compression garment for support and swelling reduction. You will also need to avoid strenuous activity and lifting for 2-3 weeks to allow your body to heal properly.
You should start seeing the full results of your surgery within 2-3 months. You can expect a flatter, toned abdomen and a more defined waistline. Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly can help prolong your surgery’s results.
Choosing an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon and taking proactive measures can help boost recovery and prevent certain complications. The surgeon will assess your body type and guide you through the procedure so that you can make an informed decision.
