Getting full-body liposuction can give you the figure you’ve always wanted to create and maintain.

What is a Full Body Liposuction?
Full Body Liposuction targets unwanted stubborn fats that are usually impervious to vigorous diet and exercise. It is, however, not a weight-loss solution but rather a body contouring procedure. It focuses on improving the body’s shape, resulting in a balanced body figure based on the patient’s body statistics.
That being said, Full Body Liposuction in Korea involves the use of a method known as 360° liposuction or Lipo 360 which mainly takes into account the body line that fits into the patient’s body shape, going beyond a simple suction. It is not only the removal of fat in a specific region of the patient’s midsection but it encompasses the whole front and back of the abdominal region as well as the upper arms, making a 360-degree rotation resulting in better proportions of the body.
Getting Full Body Liposuction in Korea involves fat removal from different areas of the body such as, but not limited to:
- Upper arms
- Hips / Love handles
These may be customized according to the patient’s needs and goals regarding their body shape. It can also be integrated with other procedures such as a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Calf Reduction, or Breast Augmentation. These, of course, come with proper consultation, assessment, and diagnostic tests by our qualified Plastic Surgeons to assure that the specific need of the patient is met. As not all patients have the same body structures, careful evaluation is needed to yield successful results.
The 360° Liposuction Method
360° Liposuction may sound like an entirely new procedure, but it’s just a more intensive form of liposuction. In a standard liposuction procedure, a single area is targeted. In 360° liposuction, our surgeons will perform a more comprehensive procedure that will get rid of fat from multiple areas while contouring the body to achieve a slimmer figure with smoother curves creating a more toned profile.
360° Liposuction in Korea is also better known as Laser Liposuction. It utilizes 360-degree, circumferential liposuction, effectively resulting in a more thorough and efficient procedure. It somehow “melts” the fat, liquifying it, and as the diode laser can get into the body reaching up to six inches deep, the more fat can be removed in one go!
When it comes to liposuction, the stomach area is the most common problem area to tackle but with 360° Liposuction, it goes beyond the abdomen, waist, and hips area. It can also be done in the arms where the 360° Liposuction approach can eliminate the fat from the entire circumference of your arm, giving it a more naturally slim look. Beyond these, 360 Degrees Liposuction can also be done at the back, forearms, calves, even your chin, and face!
Procedure: What Consists A Full Body Liposuction?
In liposuction, the use of the tumescent technique is common where a patient’s fatty tissue is injected with a large amount of fluid that makes it “tumescent,” which means “swollen and firm.” This allows fat cells to be literally “vacuumed” out of the body with accredited types of equipment.
Full Body Liposuction uses more modern methods following the concept of the tumescent technique. It is a minimally invasive surgery as it uses ultrasonic fat-emulsifying equipment and diode lasers to support liposuction.
As every individual’s body composition is unique and has different needs, body contour surgery is customized based on the patient’s case. Simply, the procedure starts with an assessment and a plan will be formed after consulting with our reputable surgeons.
Preparations that patients must be aware of before the surgery can be further read in our How To Prepare Before Surgery in the Body Shaping section.
After a thorough evaluation done by our Seoul Guide Medical team, the design plan for the full-body liposuction is also an important step. Our highly qualified lipo surgeons will place guide marks on the places where fat will be removed. 360° liposuction in Korea is most frequently done with general anesthesia, oftentimes together with local anesthesia and deep sedation. After being placed under anesthesia, our surgeons will make a small incision in your skin. The following steps will ensue after the incision:
Step 1. A cannula is inserted and applied in a fanning motion
Step 2. Fat is “melted” upon contact with laser heat
Step 3. Laser energy stimulates collagen contraction and growth
Step 4. This approach results in simultaneous lasing and fat suction making the 360 – degree liposuction more efficient and comprehensive.
This gives superior results and a reduced treatment time in a single outpatient procedure. You can go home the same day you undergo 360-degree liposuction. However, it is recommended that you stay at least a night in the hospital as you have undergone fat removal in multiple areas of the body to avoid any untoward complications. Although Full Body Liposuction surgery might be done at one time, it can also be divided into two procedures depending on the amount of fat and the range. If Full Body Liposuction surgery in Korea is divided into two, it will be performed at an interval of 2 weeks. Times vary, but the procedure generally takes two to eight hours, depending on how many areas are being treated.
Aftercare is equally important as Pre-op care. Read detailed information on What To Do After Surgery in the Body Shaping Section to be aware of the necessary post-op care.
Are you a candidate for a Full Body Liposuction?
No matter how tempting Full Body Liposuction sounds to make fat disappear permanently, it should not be viewed as a quick fix for individuals who are significantly overweight or considered obese. The procedure works best for those who have already lost some weight themselves and are close to their ideal weight but need help tackling stubborn areas of fat in problem areas.
You are a good candidate for a 360° Liposuction if you have excessive body fat in certain areas of your body but otherwise have stable body weight. It is also for people whose skin is elastic and can contract after removing the fat cells. For people who lack skin elasticity, you may end up with loose, saggy skin after the procedure.
Furthermore, you have to be over 18 years old as you would be asked to sign a consent form before proceeding with the surgery. You must also be in good health before undergoing the procedure. People who have circulation or blood flow problems like diabetes, coronary artery disease, and a weakened immune system are not advised to undergo the treatment.

Let’s say an office worker’s sedentary lifestyle and irregular diet may affect the body figure they’ve had when they were in their 20’s which, associated with other factors such as genetic determination, pregnancy, and the aging process can result in the loss of the individual’s body image, hence the growing motivation for surgical correction of the body. According to a study, about 86% of the 360 patients involved responded that their self-esteem and quality of life improved after liposuction.
