It’s Time to Get Rid of Your Love Handles

Though the nickname “love handles” does sound like something we would all want, many women struggle with ‘muffin top’ or ‘love handles’ and cannot get rid of them.

Exercise and a healthy diet is a great place to start when it comes to losing weight, but sometimes, it simply isn’t enough. It can be difficult to target specific areas when it comes to exercising, so finding the right regimen to hit your problem areas may cause you more stress than relief. Plastic surgery may be the best solution when it comes to finally saying goodbye to your love handles.

What are “Love Handles”?

“Love Handles”don’t need to be explained to the many women who battle these dreaded fat areas of fat, but reasons can differ.

Love Handles

“Muffin top” or “love handles” are usually located right below the mid-section but above the pelvic area. This particular area attracts fat for a number of different reasons. Some of these reasons include:

  • Bearing children
  • Exercising only one area of the body, such as the arms or legs
  • Aging

As women age, losing weight becomes more difficult. Getting rid of these problem areas with plastic surgery is a common choice for many people.

The Benefits

Removing your “love handles” can be a great way to help boost your self-confidence. For many women, it can be difficult to find clothing that fits correctly when you are struggling with an overweight mid-section. Pants don’t fit right and shirts give you the appearance of a caterpillar, but having this area of fat removed can help eliminate the problem.

It is often difficult to shed the extra weight after giving birth, and women are often stuck with a ‘pouch’. Once the fat is removed and the skin is tightened, you can feel more comfortable again in your own skin.

The Procedure

The procedure to rid “love handles” is a form of liposuction, where the excess fat is removed. If there is a lot of excess skin after the fat has been removed, there is a new treatment available called “RF Treatment”, which involves tightening the skin and releasing a collagen that allows the skin to tighten and shrink. In a way, it restores the elasticity of the skin, giving you a younger and more natural look.
