What are love handles?

Love handles are the excess areas of skin seen on the hips that indicate an accumulation of fat around the hips and abdominal area.

This excess fat can negatively affect an individual's self confidence and lead to more serious problems later down the line. In this post we’ll educate you on love handles, what they are, how they form and exactly how you can get rid of love handles for good.

What causes love handles and back fat?

The cause of love handles is simple, the body isn’t burning enough fat and has to store it somewhere. Through time, this build up of fat can become noticeable in the exact areas you don’t want it, ruining an individual's confidence.

There are many factors that contribute to the formation of love handles, these mostly include the lack of physical exercise, changes in hormone levels, age and conditions which slow down the body's metabolism, making it harder to burn fat.

How do you get rid of love handles?

There are many simple lifestyle changes you can make like exercising multiple times per week, consuming a healthy diet and controlling sleep which can be attributed to the diminishing of love handles. Whilst this is true, for many, love handles live well on after these lifestyle changes are made.

Quite often, the best way to remove love handles is through a surgical procedure. This not only removes love handles quickly but ensures they won’t come back. An effective surgical procedure combined with lifestyle changes can create a powerful combination for removing love handles and bringing people closer to their dream body.

At the Cadogan Clinic we seek to help individuals remove love handles through effective surgical procedures. For more information on any of our procedures, send us a message via the contact form on our website.

How long does it take to lose love handles

How does stomach tightening surgery reduce love handles?   

Stomach tightening surgery is designed to effectively remove excess fat from the target area, then tighten the skin and underlying muscles to form the natural, desired surface appearance an individual seeks to achieve.

The surgery works by making a small incision across the lower tummy, separating the skin and removing the excess fat before proceeding to stitch the area back in place. All in all, a surgical procedure is often the best way to remove love handles when combined with lifestyle changes and our clinic is here to help every step of the way.

Liposuction can also used to target stubborn areas of fat.
