Even though their name sounds sweet and endearing, there isn't much to love about love handles. As a tried-and-true body contouring procedure, liposuction can help eliminate love handles and slim down your waistline when other methods haven’t helped.
Where Lifestyle Ends and Lipo Begins
When it comes to your weight, there are many urban legends about how fat cells react to diet and exercise. While it's true that working out and eating right can go a long way when trying to lose weight and slim down, many people feel they hit a plateau at a certain point and can't seem to shed specific areas of fat no matter how hard they try. This is actually because each individual stores fat differently and certain accumulations of fat can be very resistant to even the most stringent workout routines and disciplined eating habits. One of the top questions about liposuction that I hear from patients is whether it can make a difference in these situations.
How Lipo Can Help
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that effectively targets stubborn problem areas to improve your overall shape and silhouette. By sculpting the body to create new curves and proportions, your surgeon can fine-tune your figure to make problem areas like love handles a distant memory.
Although lipo isn't a method of weight loss, some visual slimming down will occur as your doctor removes the fat you can't seem to get rid of on your own. So, if you're getting your money's worth out of your gym membership but your love handles remain, consider lipo to finally get the figure you've worked so hard for.
