Excess fat at the side of our torso is medically known as your flanks but more commonly referred to as love handles or a muffin top. More often than not, the fat in this area is usually quite stubborn and difficult to loose with exercise and diet alone due to the increased fat cells sitting in this area.
Eating excessive amounts of sugary, fatty or starchy foods can result in fat being stored around the waist area and love handles appearing. However lack of sleep and stress can also cause increased weight gain as lack of sleep can alter your body’s metabolism and cause it to slow down and stress results in a hormone called cortisol being released into your body which encourages it to store the fat rather than burn it away.
Stubborn fat can be distressing for many, especially when you are putting the effort in with healthy eating and regular exercise and can result in confidence loss and a feeling of failure.
For over 35 years, The Private Clinic have offered their patients the most advanced and effective cosmetic treatments, and have some of the most experienced specialists in the industry that can advise on the best treatment for love handles. The next step is to book a consultation to discuss your area of concern. They treat thousands of patients every year and pride ourselves on their knowledge and expertise. All of their Clinics are registered with the Care Quality Commission and The Independent Healthcare Advisory Services.
Vaser Liposuction is a great treatment option for love handles and muffin tops.
Vaser Liposuction is a minimally invasive body sculpting and contouring procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic with sedation. Once the local anaesthetic has been administered then your procedure will begin with a tumescent fluid being injected into the area to be treated. This fluid works to separate fat cells from the connective tissues which minimises the disruption to the surrounding tissues. Small incisions are then created and a specialised Vaser probe will be inserted into these incisions and pulses of ultrasound energy are then carefully guided through the area to help break down the fat cells. Fat cells are then gently sucked out of the targeted area/s.
No stitches are required and once fully recovered you are free to go home. The downtime after Vaser Liposuction is fairly minimal and you should be able to return to your daily routine quite quickly.
Although initial results can often be seen straight away, the best results are seen 5-6 weeks post procedure once the swelling has reduced.
Vaser Liposuction for love handles consultations are available at London Harley Street, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds.
