Why would they be called ‘Love Handles’? Let’s be honest there’s nothing to love about love handles. This is an area that plagues both men and women alike. Most people who struggle with this area are very aware of its location, but we’ll define it here: the term “love handles” describes the fat that hangs over the rear and side waistline—the fat you might find yourself grabbing and wondering why it got such an ill-fitting name.
For whatever reason, the love handles can be super resistant to diet and exercise, and as much as we all try to stay positive about our bodies and take good care of our health, love handles can really take a toll on the way you see yourself. Unfortunately, this area is one of the most noticeable areas to have extra weight on the body, simply because it sits just above your pant line and spills over, not a cute look.
Get Rid of Your Love Handles
If you’re looking for a way to get rid of your love handles as fast and as easily as possible and love yourself even more, Smartlipo is an effective solution that we offer at WIFH. While other liposuction options can be major procedures with a lot of downtime and sometimes ineffective results, Smartlipo is an easy procedure that will have you up and moving right away—and waving good-bye to your stubborn, fatty love handles.
Smartlipo: A Love Handles Solution
Smartlipo does a great job addressing the annoying issue of love handles. Smartlipo is laser-assisted liposuction. Done under local anesthesia, 94% of our patients don’t even take an oral sedative and drive themselves home after their procedure.
During the Smartlipo procedure, tiny punctures, about 1/8 of an inch, are made in the skin (typically for this area one on each side is needed, at most 2 on each side), the area is infused with a numbing fluid, then a cannula with a laser fiber threaded through it is inserted, and the fat is melted away. The heat from the laser, while melting the fat, simultaneously tightens the skin, leaving you with smooth results. Once liquefied, the fatty fluid is suctioned from the body (and you can say good-bye to those unlovable love handles)!
You will have some swelling following the procedure, and we do require that you wear a compression garment under your clothes for 3 weeks (this really isn’t as bad as you think). At about 4 weeks you will start to see your body take shape. Keep in mind it can take between 3-6 months before you see final results from your Smartlipo procedure.
Smartlipo can completely get rid of the love handle area with little to no downtime. You should expect to be sore like you have worked out hard, but you will be up and moving the same day you get the procedure. Recovery following Smartlipo to the love handles is really easy, you could honestly return to work the next day.
