Why Won’t My Love Handles Go Away?

Love handles – found at the base of a person’s “flanks” – are pockets of stubborn fat that build up around the waist. Several of our patients have described their love handles as an unwelcome presence because they can be extremely difficult to get rid of, even with the help of vigorous exercise and diet. If you are unsatisfied with stubborn love handles, don’t worry – our experienced plastic surgeon, Amir Nasir, MD, has helped countless patients shed the dreaded “muffin top” concern at our SlimStart Lipo Center. Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed around the world, and Dr. Nasir has spent years honing his liposuction craft.

Dr. Nasir practices ​​tumescent liposuction, a technique that incorporates the injection of anesthesia into the treatment area along with the cannula (the medical suction device). This innovative method generally makes for a quicker, more comfortable procedure, and tends to yield more profound, long-lasting results than traditional liposuction. In addition to love handles, Dr. Nasir can use ​​tumescent liposuction to sculpt the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and more.

Alternatively, Dr. Nasir can address flanks with SlimStart SCULPT
liposuction, a technique that shares many benefits with tumescent liposuction. The key difference, however, is that SlimStart SCULPT involves the removal of excess skin immediately after fat removal. While this procedure can be effective in reducing the appearance of love handles, it was specifically designed to sculpt the abdomen; however, if you are interested in skin removal in addition to fat reduction for sculpting your midsection, we encourage you to contact us today to discuss your options.
