One of the common areas where both men and women accumulate fat is love handles. It’s very difficult to get rid of excess fat in this area through diet and exercises. There are different reasons for fat getting stored in the flanks such as hormonal changes, aging, genetics and pregnancy. Liposuction on love handles can zap away the fat and bring back a natural and more attractive contour. With new advancements in liposuction, Smartlipo uses laser energy to successfully treat the unwanted fat in this part of the body.
Liposuction on love handles is performed using the advanced FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation. It is a laser-assisted lipolysis device that liquefies the fat prior to its removal from the body, allowing it to be suctioned out painlessly and without affecting the surrounding tissues. Flanks are an excellent spot for this procedure because the device’s skin tightening feature provides for a slimmer and trimmer appearance. The toning of love handles will reveal muscle definition and a slimmer waist. Not only will you look good, you will feel good and your confidence will increase.
Laser liposuction features extended clinical capabilities to ensure successful fat removal with three separate laser wavelengths – 1064nm, 1320 nm and 1440nm that can be used in single or blended mode. The procedure can be combined with abdominal liposuction to contour your body. Most patients require only one session of Smartlipo treatment and then it is completed typically in one hour. It is performed under local anesthesia and most of the patients are back at work in one or two days.
Healthy men and women with good skin elasticity and distinct pockets of excess fat in areas like the love handles are considered to be ideal candidates for the procedure. They should be in good health and also maintain realistic expectations about the outcome. Patients can expect a quick recovery with an improved, slimmer and fitter appearance.
Male or female love handle liposuction using Smartlipo has many benefits. They are:
- The patient is awake during the procedure because it is minimally-invasive and performed as an outpatient procedure
- Safe and effective procedure that requires only local anesthesia to numb the area
- FDA-approved laser lipolysis system
- Reliable and controlled delivery of energy
- Tightens the skin quickly by coagulating tissues that result in tissue retraction
- Less bleeding and bruising than traditional liposuction
- Reduced swelling and no noticeable scars
- Low risk of complications and discomfort
- Provides superior contouring results and maximum patient comfort
Proper aftercare, rest and relaxation are required for the first two days after the procedure. Gradually, normal activities can be resumed starting with moderate exercises. Recovery and downtime vary among patients, but it is seen that many patients are able to return to their work within 48 hours of the procedure due to its minimal discomfort and minimal complications.
