How Can I Get Rid of My Love Handles?

It is very common for the body to retain excess fat in areas of the waistline, just above the hips. Often referred to as “love handles,” these concerns can even affect women and men who are in otherwise excellent physical condition, leading to a significant amount of frustration when standard diet and exercise routines aren’t yielding effective results. The good news is, Dr. Thomas B. Lintner and our team of aesthetic professionals offer a number of different options that can reduce excess fat in these areas and effectively diminish signs of love handles.
Liposuction is typically the ideal surgical treatment for love handles. This procedure can remove excess fat that has proven resistant to regular exercise and a healthy diet, ultimately helping many patients recontour their bodies with excellent results. For individuals who are experiencing less pronounced love handles, an invasive surgical procedure may not be necessary to achieve the desired outcome. In these cases, Dr. Lintner may recommend a treatment such as SculpSure®. This technique utilizes the power of light to destroy targeted fat cells under the skin without harming surrounding tissues. Once the light breaks down the excess fat cells, they are naturally filtered out of the body over time. Some patients may also benefit from a minimally-invasive technique such as BodyTite®, or a laser fat reduction treatment with Exilis™ technology. Exilis™ procedures can be used for both skin tightening and body contouring, offering another alternative to liposuction for the right candidate.
Once you have met with Dr. Lintner for your initial consultation, he will evaluate your concerns and explore the options that are best for you based on your unique needs, goals, and expectations. Just remember that there are many distinct treatments available that can help get rid of stubborn love handles and create beautiful new body contours!
