Tummy Tuck 360

A 360 tummy tuck, also called a “tummy tuck 360” or “circumferential tummy tuck” is designed for patients who have loose skin or excess fat that extends beyond the abdominal area. Through a 360 tummy tuck, Dr. Ditesheim can sculpt the body to achieve the patient’s ideal shape. Our Ballantyne office is located 13 minutes from Pineville and 20 minutes from Waxhaw.

What is a 360 Tummy Tuck?

A 360 tummy tuck builds on a traditional tummy tuck technique, which involves tightening the abdominal muscles, removing stubborn fat deposits, and tightening the skin. In a 360 tummy tuck, 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.

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 360 tummy tuck 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.

Who is a Tummy Tuck 360 Candidate?

Tummy tuck 360 candidates have loose skin and excess fat throughout the abdominal area and surrounding areas such as the hips, flanks, or back, and loose or damaged abdominal muscles. They should be at a stable weight, non-smokers, and have healthy skin before undergoing the procedure. During a consultation, Dr. Ditesheim will review your concerns and overall health and recommend whether a 360 tummy tuck is right for you. During the consultation, he may also recommend pairing your tummy tuck with another procedure such as liposuction in Charlotte to truly meet your goal results

Before Dr. Ditesheim was my surgeon, he was my boss.

I have also observed firsthand the time and thought that Dr. Ditesheim puts into each patient’s surgery planning. This exposure made it obvious to me that Dr. Ditesheim was the perfect choice for me to address certain parts of my own body that I had been uncomfortable with.

How is a Tummy Tuck 360 Performed?

A tummy tuck 360 is performed under general anesthesia. First, Dr. Ditesheim will analyze your unique frame and create a plan for a tummy tuck procedure. Once the tummy tuck has been performed, he will then use High Definition Liposuction to selectively remove or add pockets of fat from the sides and back, creating a sculpted appearance that enhances your natural curves.

How is a tummy tuck 360 different than a regular tummy tuck?

While a traditional tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, the High Definition liposuction 360 technique achieves artistic body contouring by treating the entire circumference of a patient, including the back and sides.

How soon will I see results from 360 tummy tuck?

You will see preliminary results from any liposuction procedure immediately, although your body contour will continue to improve in appearance as you heal and any bruising and swelling go down.

How much weight will I lose with liposuction?

Liposuction and the High Definition 360 procedure are not weight-loss surgeries, but rather body contouring procedures. Although some fat can be removed, it is more about achieving the shape you want rather than helping you lose a lot of weight.
