Diet and Exercise Not Shrinking Your Flanks? Consider Liposuction

Featured Image

It's hard to be confident when you're feeling a little embarrassed about your body. For instance, a lot of people are unhappy with the appearance of their love handles (also known as flanks). If traditional diet and exercise plans don't seem to be working, it might be worth considering liposuction with a trained plastic surgeon.

Liposuction is a modern procedure that removes fat by suctioning it out through small incisions. While some people are hesitant at first, they often come around after seeing how much better they look after the procedure. Call Beleza Surgery in Cedar Park or Killeen, TX to learn more about fat removal surgery and how we create gorgeous results.

How do love handles form?

Love handles are small pockets of fat that collect around the sides of the waistline or flanks. A combination of factors can cause someone to develop these fat deposits, including unexpected weight gain, hormone changes, and genetics. Women may also experience fat accumulation during life stages, like pregnancy or menopause.

No matter how much you diet or exercise, it's challenging to target specific areas of the body when it comes to losing fat. Love handles and belly fat can be incredibly stubborn, and they're often one of the last places where pounds are lost. Liposuction is a solution that can be used to shrink these areas to create a leaner and more sculpted look.

Here's why you should choose liposuction for love handles at Beleza Surgery:

  • Liposuction is a lasting solution that can create a new shape for your body. You'll lose fat from problem areas and keep it off with healthy but simple lifestyle changes.

  • It's minimally invasive. Only small incisions are needed to access the targeted fat, and there is less risk for scarring.

  • It has high patient satisfaction rates. People often love their results after liposuction, which can make them feel more positive about their bodies.

How does fat removal surgery work?

Liposuction for love handles is an outpatient procedure performed at our accredited operating room in Cedar Park or Killeen. We begin by making a small incision through which a special tube called a cannula is placed. This tool loosens and removes excess tissue in the flanks, belly fat, and other areas as needed. The incision is then carefully closed.

Can I continue diet and exercise after liposuction?

Yes! Liposuction is an excellent option for people who want to take away fat deposits and keep them off long-term. However, patients do need to spend several weeks in recovery before jumping back into strenuous activity. We can recommend walking and light workouts in the meantime. Eating a healthy diet can also speed the healing process and help you stay in shape after surgery.

When will I see the results?

Some bruising and swelling are normal side effects after fat removal surgery. Once these side effects subside, you should see a dramatic improvement in your waistline. Love handles do shrink shortly afterward, although the full results may not be visible for up to 6 – 10 months. Our staff will advise patients on how much time is needed for total recovery after liposuction.
