What are Love Handles?

Love handles are the pockets of extra fat at the sides of the waist. These protrusions are also referred to as “muffin tops” and become more evident when you wear tight clothing Love handles occur due to several reasons, such as aging, pregnancy, other hormonal changes, menopause or genetic predisposition. The body tends to hold onto this fat, especially in women, as it can act as both an energy source and as protection during childbearing. Female love handles liposuction New York City is a safe and effective way to get rid of love handles.

Once the love handles are removed using liposuction, the bothersome fat is unlikely to return. Liposuction permanently eliminates fat cells, but any fat cells left over in this area and other areas of the body will grow if you significantly gain weight. Love-handles liposuction gets rid of stubborn fat, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is necessary to retain your outcomes.

How is Love handles Liposuction Performed?

NYC plastic surgeons use FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex, a minimally invasive workstation to perform love handles liposuction. This laser-assisted procedure liquefies the extra fat and gently suctions it off. Smartlipo love handle liposuction gets rid of troublesome fat around the waist and midsection without harming the other tissues in the area. Additionally, the device’s skin tightening function enables the surgeon to deliver toned results. This laser-assisted treatment comes with much less recovery time than traditional liposuction surgery.

The Smartlipo device features three distinct laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm), that rupture fat cells and coagulate tissue, leading to tissue retraction. These laser wavelengths can be used singly or blended. Its sophisticated delivery systems, SmartSense™ with ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™, continuously monitor and control skin temperature while upholding safe treatment levels. This laser-assisted equipment addresses excess fat quickly, conveniently, and safely, enabling you to attain your aesthetic goals with minimal surgical discomfort.

Things to note if you are considering love handles liposuction:

  • You cannot achieve the “perfect” body through liposuction.
  • Excess skin cannot be improved by liposuction alone. A stomach tuck (abdominoplasty) may be necessary in place of a weight loss procedure if you have extra skin, for example from prior weight loss.
  • Love handle fat cells can be permanently removed via liposuction. However, if you gain weight in the future, your existing fat cells may become larger in other places of your body.
  • People who have heart illness, circulatory issues, or who recently had stomach surgery near the love handles are not good candidates for liposuction.

The swelling will go down over the course of around three months. Some mild pain should be expected for 1-2 weeks, and may last up to a month. For the first week, you might need to take painkillers.  Most patients resume office work within a week. Based on your surgeon’s advice, performing mild exercises in the initial phase can improve blood circulation. Strenuous activity will be prohibited while you’re recovering. Recovery timeframes can vary depending on individual anatomical considerations and the quantity of fat removed.
