Removal of Love Handles by Liposuction
Removal of Love Handles by Liposuction
The word “Love Handles” sounds romantic but there is nothing romantic about having “love handles”. What is really means is accumulation of excessive fat around your waist that is very resistant to diet and exercise. Besides, having fat around your waist can be very bad for your health. It carries risk of developing diabetes, heart conditions or breast cancer. So before these things happen it’s a good idea to get rid of them. At Dezire clinic we have a solution to this problem of “Love Handles” by using VASER liposuction technique. Since this procedure uses very tiny incisions the down time required is minimal and you can get back to work or exercise much quicker than traditional liposuction. Since the incisions are very small the scarring is minimal. The VASER probe targets the fat selectively without damaging important structures like nerves and blood vessels making it a safer procedure of liposuction.
This is surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia on outpatient basis. You may have to wear a compression garment after this surgery to ensure that the muffin top or love handles disappears completely.
Love Handles Removal Liposuction Procedure
There are techniques most commonly used to target belly fat in the liposuction procedure. They are tumescent liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction.
1. In tumescent liposuction procedure, the first step before the doctor cuts into the skin is to make the area of the body where fat is to be removed expand and firm up by injecting a large amount of tumescent fluid into it. This fluid, which contains anesthetic and the drug epinephrine, reduces pain and blood loss.
2. In ultrasound-assisted liposuction, the tip of the cannula generates ultrasound waves that liquefy fat before it is suctioned. This technique is effective in targeting fatty deposits that are fibrous.
Here is how it works!
First, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area to be treated. With the Tumescent technique, only a local anesthetic is used to numb the area and the patient remains coherent throughout the procedure, which is very safe and relatively painless during recovery. Tiny incisions are then placed along the sides of the belly, allowing the doctor to insert the cannula, sculpt and trim your sides and a tiny cannula measuring 3 mm is inserted. With the VASER ultrasonic energy fat is gently melted directly under the skin and that encourages skin-tightening. The VASER is capable of melting dense fat in the stomach area area. The cannula is then guided to the targeted areas to suction out the melted fat with precision and resulting in less pain, bruising and downtime for the patient.
VASER Liposuction is the safest alternative to traditional liposuction. Here are some other advantages:
- VASER Liposuction is a safe, lasting procedure that eliminates love handles and extra fat. Once the fat cells are removed, the body cannot make new ones, so they are gone for good.
- This is a short procedure taking only an hour or two. This technique is designed to safely remove fat and tighten the area, simultaneously.
- Since the incisions made are very tiny, there is minimal pain and little potential of scarring.
