Question: I have lost a lot of weight but I still suffer from ‘love handles’ will liposuction remove it?
Answer: Liposuction can help to get rid of love handles, as well as any other area of the body that may have stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to budge with exercise or diet. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery treatment that can target the fat in the love handles, to emulsify the fat and remove it from the body. Using liposuction to remove love handles can give the body a sleeker silhouette with definition and contours.
The most advanced form of liposuction is Vaser lipo, which harnesses next-generation technology to break down unwanted fat in the body using ultrasonic waves. Unlike older forms of liposuction such as Smart Lipo which use laser technology, this use of ultrasound is a less invasive procedure, with a shorter downtime. This is because laser can cause damage to the surrounding areas of the body tissue that are not being treated for fat removal, which can create bruising and swelling to those areas. The ultrasound technology used with Vaser lipo is far more targeted (known as liposelection), allowing specific areas of fat to be treated without touching surrounding body tissues.*
EF MEDISPA is proud to be one of the first clinics to have introduced Vaser lipo to the UK from the USA. Bringing innovative technology to its patients is very much at the core of EF MEDISPA’s offering and this has been recognised with numerous international awards.
