For the love handles we don’t love, it would be wonderful to kiss them goodbye! VASER Liposuction could help achieve that goal.

Excess weight around the waist and back area is a common issue for women. This is especially true for women who have had children and can worsen with advancing age. Many women tackle this issue with a mix of a healthy diet and exercise, but sometimes these areas of excess fat can be resistant to all your gym-toiling, clean-eating ways.

Liposuction and Love Handles

A combination of liposuction and diet/exercise can produce great results and give your fitness routine a real boost. Love handles, or the excess subcutaneous fat carried on the hips/flanks/back, may be due to genetic traits rather than poor diet. It’s not uncommon for even highly active people to find these areas of fat hard to move.

For women and men with love handles, liposuction is a way to improve their physical appearance by removing that fat often localised in the back area or around the hips. When targeting love handles, your surgeon can use VASER liposuction to enhance the arch of the back and sculpt the hip shape you’re looking for.

Liposuction is used by women around the world to improve their body contours and proportions. To enhance their silhouette further, some opt to combine their liposuction with a Brazilian butt lift.

How is VASER liposuction performed?

After tumescent anaesthetic is administered to the patient, a special VASER Ultrasound Wand is passed through the fatty tissue to help dissolve the fat. Once the fat has melted, a fine cannulae is used to gently suction the excess subcutaneous fat out of the body. VASER technology is a revolutionary method which melts the fat prior to removal. Stubborn, genetic fat can be very thick, fibrous, and difficult to remove with conventional liposuction techniques. VASER helps to make fat more malleable and easy to suction away. This of course means less trauma to the surrounding tissues and less post-operative discomfort.

Who benefits the most from liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are people of average or above average weight, in good overall health, who carry excess weight which will not seem to move despite diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a miracle weight loss solution but is wonderful for sculpting your ideal proportions.

Just a side note here: If you have any hopes liposuction can help resolve areas of cellulite on your body – you will be disappointed. Liposuction does not treat cellulite. (You may have heard of mechanical massage, drugs, creams or laser and radio-frequency methods to treat cellulite, but there are no truly effective treatments for cellulite. If they do anything at all, none are more than mildly and temporarily effective.)

Key Takeaways

  • VASER liposuction can change the shape of love handles by enhancing the arch of the back and sculpting a new shape to the flanks and hips.
  • VASER lipo melts the fat to make it more malleable and easy to suction away. It is gentler than conventional/mechanical liposuction.
