Slim Down Unwanted Love Handles and Body Fat

Your lifestyle, including eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise, can go a long way toward keeping your body weight down. When these measures don’t get rid of stubborn “love handles” at your waistline and pockets of body fat, there are body contouring procedures that can give you a more toned appearance.

The best candidates for procedures like liposuction and CoolSculpting are at or near their ideal weight, since these treatments are not weight loss measures. Dr. Cho at Integrated Aesthetics will meet with you to evaluate your situation and find out your concerns. After an examination he will recommend the right treatment plan for a more contoured body that can meet your aesthetic goals.

Causes of Weight Gain
and Body Fat

A genetic predisposition can play a role in where you gain weight and store fat in your body. Women naturally start out with more fat cells in their hips. A poor diet, consuming too much alcohol, a lack of exercise and poor sleep habits can also contribute to weight gain and excess fat.

Hormonal changes can lead to unwanted body fat. The stress hormone cortisol can impact your metabolism and cause your body to retain excess fat. It is thought that poor sleep quality and not getting enough sleep can contribute to weight gain in the midsection.

Preventing
Love Handles
and Body Fat

People who are concerned about love handles and unwanted body fat can prevent weight gain by improving their diet. Avoiding fatty foods, refined carbohydrates and sugar as well as alcoholic drinks which may contain sugar can help.

A regimen of aerobic exercise and strength training can go a long way toward building muscle and burning calories. Refraining from smoking, improving your sleep habits and reducing stress are all preventive measures to avoid developing love handles and excess body fat. 

Treatment Options for Love Handles
and Body Fat

The best candidates for body contouring procedures have a healthy lifestyle including a good diet and enough exercise, but they need help getting rid of stubborn love handles and pockets of body fat. There are several surgical or nonsurgical procedures that can give you a trimmer waistline and a more contoured appearance.

  • Liposuction is a highly effective surgical procedure that removes fat from love handles and other areas of the body. The treatment gives you a more immediate and dramatic outcome than you would get with nonsurgical procedures.
  • BodyTite is a type of liposuction that tightens skin and liquefies fat using radiofrequency energy.
  • CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells and destroys them. They are then eliminated by the body over the next 2-4 months.
  • Emsculpt Neo uses high-intensity electromagnetic waves to stimulate muscle contractions for muscle building.
  • EmTone is a nonsurgical procedure that utilizes advanced energy to stimulate muscle contractions and create a more toned appearance.
  • Exilis Ultra 360 addresses increased skin laxity and sagging tissues to create a more toned and taut appearance.
