What is a Tummy Tuck 360?

A tummy tuck 360 builds on a traditional tummy tuck technique, which involves tightening the abdominal muscles, removing stubborn fat deposits, and tightening the skin. In a tummy tuck 360, incisions are extended to address loose skin and excess fat from the flanks, back, or hips as well. Liposuction—or, specifically, high definition liposuction—can also be used to further sculpt the body and create the shape that the patient wants.

Quick Facts Tummy Tuck 360


Create a toned abdomen and address loose skin or fat from multiple areas of the body for an ideal body contour with a single procedure.


Most patients require about a week to 10 days to rest and recover at home before returning to their normal routine. Dr. Ditesheim will likely suggest that you wait up to a month before resuming strenuous activity including exercise.


The cost of your tummy tuck 360 will vary depending on the extent of your procedure and other factors. During a consultation, Dr. Ditesheim will provide a cost estimate for your specific surgery plan.

Pairing Tummy Tuck 360 with High Definition Liposuction

Tummy tuck 360 is often paired with high definition liposuction. This liposuction technique allows Dr. Ditesheim to sculpt the body by strategically removing fat to reveal underlying muscle structures, natural curves, and other appealing contours. The tummy tuck 360 and high definition liposuction procedures can be performed in a single setting, reducing overall downtime and creating your ideal body shape through one surgery. Dr. Ditesheim will likely suggest pairing these procedures during a consultation if this combination is right for you and your goals for plastic surgery.
