Liposuction for Stubborn Fat

Many people struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that sit around the hip area. Love handles—as we love to call them—develop due to a number of reasons, including weight gain, pregnancy, genetics, sedentary lifestyle, or aging.

Sometimes, even with a healthy lifestyle that incorporates a great exercise routine, it can feel nearly impossible to eliminate those pockets of flab from your body. Love handles can be incredibly difficult to get rid of, particularly because the areas where you accumulate fat first—the mid-section—tend to be where you lose it from last.

Fortunately, liposuction offers an excellent solution to get rid of love handles for a slimmer and contoured appearance.

What Can Liposuction Do for My Love Handles?

Usually, the procedure targets isolated, bulging areas of localized fatty deposits in the body. This is why the treatment works so well for love handles as it disrupts the isolated areas of unwanted fat in the hip area.

How Is Liposuction for the Love Handles Performed?

Using tiny incisions and a device called a cannula, Dr. Gabriel Chiu will disintegrate the fat cells and suction them out to bring out a more defined and well-balanced body shape. 

Throughout the liposuction procedure, various aspects—such as the patient’s skin elasticity and body proportions—will be considered, allowing for outstanding, completely unique results.

Liposuction is a safe and effective way to eliminate love handles for a more flattering contour, even when exercise and dieting fails. And the best part is since fat cells do not reproduce, the removed cells won’t return. 

Patients should maintain their results as significant weight gain will still affect the remaining fat cells in the treated area and the surrounding areas.

In addition to liposuction, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle that incorporates the classic combination of regular workout routines and a proper diet to help you maintain your improved body contours.

Losing Fatty Deposits: Other Ways to Contour My Love Handles

Losing weight is the first step to achieving overall body sculpting. A combination of exercise techniques such as aerobic/cardio workouts and abdominal exercises can help burn calories and shrink fat cells in the body, which—in turn—helps reduce love handles.

Fat reduction can’t be achieved with spot exercises alone. Without a healthy diet, you will likely put the weight back on again. So, focus on a diet rich in quality protein and whole grains while cutting down on simple carbohydrates, sugar, and fructose-heavy beverages.

These practices are also essential to maintaining your liposuction results.
