Are you tired of hating your own body? Have gravity and age conspired to make you look worse for wear? Do you notice more sag than usual? Is fat accumulating in places that have become resistant to diet and exercise? If so, you’re not alone.
Most of us are able to keep ahead of aging well into our twenties. Some people are able to do the same into their thirties. But by about 35 is when age tends to catch up and take hold. This is particularly true among women who have had children and breastfed. But even men can notice changes to their bodies as they grow older. This can cause all of us to think less than highly about the bodies we call home.
No matter your gender, race, station in life, or the lifestyle you lead, most of us have body parts that head south for the winter, and diet and exercise don’t always help.
This is where cosmetic surgery can help. The most abundant group that seek out cosmetic surgery is within the age range of 45 to 54. This group, which represents 45% of all surgical procedures performed, is also the group that is desperate to hold age at bay. A few select cosmetic procedures can do just that.
You may have heard of the Mommy Makeover. This popular combination of cosmetic procedures involves breast augmentation, the tummy tuck, and the Brazilian butt lift, in most cases.
This post is not about the Mommy Makeover. It’s about a different combination of procedures that are ideal for both men and women. We like to refer to this combination as the Moein Makeover, after Doctor Babak Moein, who specializes in these techniques.
By combining 360 degree liposuction, tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty), and the Brazilian butt lift (BBL), you can walk away from surgery looking younger, tighter, and with a body that is out of this world.
What Are the Benefits of a Combination Cosmetic Surgical Procedure?
There are many benefits that come with having multiple techniques performed in the same surgical session.
Safer on the Body
While many of today’s cosmetic surgeries are minimally invasive, they are still considered serious surgical procedures. They involve general anesthesia, which puts you to sleep for the duration of the session. If you were to have three separate surgical sessions, you would have to be sedated three separate times. If you have ever had surgery before, you know that general anesthesia can be tough to recover from. While recovery isn’t always a tough affair, some patients can experience exhaustion, muscle aches, headaches, and vomiting. Imagine going through that recovery on three separate occasions.
By combining cosmetic techniques into a single surgical session, you only have to recover from anesthesia once. This is safer on the body and lowers your risks of side effects.
Having multiple procedures means that you have to recover from each procedure separately. You will usually have to remain bedridden for at least a day or so. Your mobility may be limited as your body heals from the trauma caused during surgery. And you may have to take time off work. The latter alone makes having a combination surgery all the more worth it. Your boss probably wouldn’t like you taking time off on three separate occasions to have several procedures spaced weeks or months apart.
With a combination cosmetic surgery like 360 lipo, tummy tuck, and BBL, you only have to recover once. You can take time off from work a single time and be back to your usual routine in just a couple of weeks.
When you have 360 lipo, tummy tuck surgery, and the Brazilian butt lift in a single surgical session, you get to experience a dramatic bodily makeover. The most popular techniques today offer subtle changes that are not immediately noticeable with clothes on. You won’t walk into work after your time off looking like a person who had work done. But you will have the surge of confidence that comes with knowing that underneath your clothes you look like a million bucks.
But what is a 360 lipo, tummy tuck and BBL combination cosmetic surgery, and what results can you expect? Let’s delve into that now.
What is a Moein Makeover (360 Lipo, Tummy Tuck & BBL)?
360 Degree Liposuction
You have probably heard of liposuction. Most people have. The cosmetic surgery is one of the top five most popular aesthetic procedures, and for good reason. Most people have stubborn pockets of fat on their bodies that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction makes quick work for these pockets, causing the body to look slimmer, sleeker, and tighter.
Most people have liposuction in a specific area of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, back, upper thighs, and upper arms. 360 degree liposuction harnesses the power of liposuction and moves like a whirlwind around your body, sucking out fat from the abdomen, flanks, and back. The results are dramatic.
The comprehensive cosmetic technique reforms the entire midsection to leave you curvy and contoured from every angle. The results are particularly apparent along the back. Many patients request this technique when they have a series of back rolls. These pockets of fat make the back look like the Michelin Man from the old tire commercials. These rolls also make wearing a bra difficult for women. The excess skin and fat causes the strap of the bra to dig into the skin, causing marks and sometimes rashes. After 360 degree liposuction, those rolls become a thing of the past. The back becomes transformed so that it is sleeker and more tapered down to the waist.
There are two ways to perform 360 Lipo. Traditional liposuction or VASER HI-Def liposuction can be used.
With traditional liposuction, a tumescent fluid is inserted under the skin by way of tiny incisions. The fluid contains an anesthetic that numbs the area while the fat becomes liquified for easier removal. Still, some fat tends to cling to the inner surface of the skin for dear life. The cosmetic surgeon combats this by using a thin rod known as a cannula to break up the fat. The cannula is moved around vigorously under the skin, which breaks up the fat for easier removal. The cannula is connected to a suction device which vacuums the fat out, leaving the area slimmer once the swelling from the procedure has gone down.
VASER Hi-Def liposuction
VASER Hi-Def liposuction uses sound energy to break up the fat. Without the vigorous motion of the cannula, there is less bleeding and less bruising to the body. The emulsified fat is suctioned out as with traditional liposuction. However, VASER lipo combines radiofrequency energy with J-Plasma energy, which has a coagulation effect on tissue. You know how when you heat up egg yolks, they become firmer and tighter? That’s what J-Plasma energy does to your skin. VASER lipo, therefore, makes the treatment area of your body – in his case your entire midsection – slimmer and your skin tighter for dramatic improvement.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
A tummy tuck is a favorite of men and women. Women particularly love the tummy tuck because it removes excess skin and hanging fat that can remain following childbirth. Tummy tuck surgery can also strengthen the abdominal muscles. If you didn’t have a six pack before surgery, you may have the beginnings of one following tummy tuck surgery.
A full tummy tuck involves a horizontally oriented incision placed between the pubic hairline and belly button. The resulting scar can easily be hidden inside underwear or a bathing suit. The shape and length of the incision depends on how much excess skin needs to be removed. The abdominal skin is lifted, whereby the cosmetic surgeon will strengthen the weakened abdominal muscles. In some cases, a secondary incision will be employed to remove skin along the upper abdomen.
The excess skin is trimmed before the remaining skin is sutured together. The cosmetic surgeon may have to create a new opening for the belly button. The results leave you with a flatter tummy, a tapered midsection, and a tighter core.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The BBL is a favorite among celebrities and everyday men and women alike. Kim Kardashian has proclaimed her love of the procedure, and we all know what an enviable backside she has.
When many people think of the BBL, they think of massive buttocks. This does not have to be the case. In fact, today’s most popular techniques involve subtle improvement to the backside. The idea is to make your butt more prominent and proportional to the rest of your body. If your butt currently sags or tends to lay flat, a Brazilian butt lift can help you fill out your clothes while giving you enviable curves.
During a BBL, the fat that was suctioned out of your midsection is sterilized and repurposed. Using strategic injections, the cosmetic surgeon slowly reinjects the fatty tissue all around the backside area. This allows the surgeon to shape the buttocks while giving it more volume and prominence. The results give you a rounder and perkier derrière.
What Do the Results of 360 Lipo, Tummy Tuck and BBL Look Like?
The Moein Makeover offers dramatic results. At Healthy Life Bariatrics, the combination of cosmetic procedures is often chosen as part of a post-bariatric surgery surgical plan. That is, patients who undergo these procedures have lost significant weight with bariatric procedures such as gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery. This has left the patient with excess skin, in some cases, not to mention saggy skin in all the wrong places.
However, the Moein Makeover can be used on men and women who are merely starting to see the signs of age.
After the procedure, the tummy will be flatter with stronger abdominal muscles. The back will appear more tapered, giving the waist the V-formation everyone covets. The flanks will be less prominent once the love handles are gone, and the buttocks will be more proportional to the rest of the body.
Having a Moein Makeover can make your clothes fit better and draw all eyes on you whenever you walk into a room. The surge of confidence you are sure to feel will also serve you in nearly every area of your life.

Best Ways to Prepare for Combination Cosmetic Surgery
If you are considering a Moein Makeover with 360 Lipo, Tummy Tuck Surgery, and BBL, here are some tips that can help you better prepare for your upcoming bodily transformation.

Stay Active and Eat Well
Get into the habit of eating healthy foods and getting regular exercise. Doing so can help you keep your body fat low so that you retain the results of your procedure long into the future.
Prepare for Your Recovery
Since you are having work done to your midsection, buttocks, and abdomen, you may find that recovery takes patience and time. Make sure your recovery area, such as your favorite chair in your home, has everything you need to be comfortable. Plan to have a long phone charger, a large water jug, some favorite snacks, the remote control, and a good book. Clean up the home before you leave for the surgical center so that you don’t have to deal with a cluttered home while healing. And get someone to help out if you need assistance using the restroom or doing chores around the house in the first few days following your surgical procedure.
What is Recovery Like Following 360 Lipo, Tummy Tuck and BBL
You may find that it takes between two and three weeks before you can return to work. During that time, do your best to rest up. You may have swelling and bruising around your body. This is normal. The swelling and bruising will soon subside. When that happens, you will see the final results of the procedure, which are sure to help you fall in love with your body once more.
How Would Your Body Look with 360 Liposuction, Tummy Tuck & BBL?
If age is starting to catch up with you, there is something you can do about it. If you gained weight during the pandemic, maybe it’s time you put that fatty tissue to better use. The combination of procedures known as the Moein Makeover takes fat from your midsection and transfers that tissue to your backside. A tummy tuck gives you a slimmer midsection and tighter abs. The results will leave you feeling better about your body, and more confident in life.
