No one likes to wear pants and feel like they are spilling over the sides. Unfortunately, for many people, this is reality. Muffin tops, side fat, love handles—whatever you call them, they are embarrassing and annoying. Thankfully, many cosmetic body treatments are available to eliminate this problem so you can feel happy in your skin. Learn how to get rid of love handles with effective body treatments, surgical and nonsurgical, in Pearl River, New York.
The best way to get rid of love handles for good with surgery is liposuction. Nearly everyone has heard of lipo. Dr. Fiorillo provides the most advanced liposuction treatments in the Pearl River area. The Liposuction is performed by Dr. Fiorillo in an operating room and requires an anesthesiologist to put you under fully for the procedure. Different treatment areas have slightly different procedural approaches. The basic idea behind lipo involves several incisions made with a scalpel. The surgeon inserts a sharp tube, or cannula, through the incisions and into the fatty tissue. Then, they use a tube to both break up the tissue and suction out the fat from the love handles.
For most people, the idea of a surgical procedure is scary. While surgical liposuction is an effective way to reduce love handles, it is also an invasive surgery. It comes with several drawbacks. Thankfully, for people wanting to avoid surgery but still achieve an optimal fat reduction in the love handles, there is a fantastic non-invasive method.
CoolSculpting is an excellent non-invasive option to get rid of love handle fat. This treatment is virtually painless and requires minimal downtime, unlike liposuction, which has a complicated and lengthy recovery period. CoolSculpting uses advanced cooling technology to eliminate fat cells. During treatments, a proprietary applicator delivers extreme cooling to the love handles. As the applicator passes over your flanks, it emits Cryolypolysis straight to the subcutaneous fat cells under the skin's surface.
The cold temperature effectively “freezes” the fat cells in the love handles, causing the cell membrane to rupture. The process triggers cell death. Then, soon after, the body initiates a natural immune response to collect the dead cells and expel them from the body.
