Having a great contoured body is very important to almost all people. This is something that somehow lifts their self confidence and feel good about themselves. However, achieving this wonderful shape is quite hard, especially for people who have too much fatty deposits on different areas of the body. One of the most common parts of the body that is known to have a lot of fat storage are the flanks, also more popularly known as the love handles. Liposuction of love handles is one way of removing these excess, unwanted fats.
The love handles are more prominent on men than in women. The love handles are the culprits that hinder the males to achieve that tapered torso they are aiming for. For women, they lose the hour glass shaped figure when the fatty deposits are on the hip area. The fatty deposits on these areas and in the abdomen are hard to lose. In most cases, dieting and exercise seem to work in some areas of the body except on the love areas. This is the reason why liposuction of love handles is such a popular choice of treatment especially for the male population. However, not all cases of love handles can be considered for the procedure of liposuction. All measures must be considered first and put into action like trying to lose the excess fats by going into a strict diet. Most people think that liposuction is a weight loss procedure in which they have totally misunderstood. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that works best for people who are physically fit overall and are just about a few pounds beyond their ideal weight, about 10-15 pounds. Consult a doctor and ask about this procedure to know more about it and if it’s the best option for your current situation.
The procedure for this type of liposuction starts off via local or general anesthesia. After that, an incision will be made in the abdominal region from where a cannula is inserted. The cannula is a thin, metal tube that is used to suck out the fats from the body. Tumescent or laser technique are the more popular options for this kind of procedure because it is safer and less invasive compared to the traditional liposuction procedure. Swelling and bruising are normal and will subside after a few weeks.
Liposuction for love handles, is considered to be a safe procedure. However, like any other surgery, there are still risks that are involved. Results may also vary from person to person. Ask your doctor about the realistic results in your case and you might want to try other options too like love handle exercises.
