Love Handles

Love handles refer to excess skin that extends from the hips. They can be formed through a build-up of fat in the hips and stomach area. If your body is taking in too many calories or you aren’t getting enough exercise, fat cells start to accumulate and become noticeable.


On their own love handles aren’t dangerous, but they may be an indicator of underlying health problems such as high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure and sleep apnoea.


What Are the Causes?


  • Lack of physical activity
  • A diet that’s high in fats and sugars
  • Hormonal changes
  • Age

What Types of Love Handle Treatments Are Out There?

Fat Dissolving Injection

Even with regular exercise, love handles can sometimes be difficult to remove and fat dissolving injections can help.


The injection contains specialised compounds that are designed to break down fat efficiently and safely. These chemicals attach to fat cells, breaking them down overtime until the body releases the cells. The excretion process usually takes place over 3 – 6 weeks.


The benefits of fat dissolving injections include a quick procedure, minimal recovery time and excellent results. Once the fat cells have been broken down, they are removed permanently.



Another way to treat love handles is with radiotherapy, which involves using radio waves on the skin.


The waves are directed at areas of fat and heated to stimulate the production of collagen. This results in the tightening of the skin and may help to reduce love handles.


Liposuction is a popular love handles removal treatment, focusing on removing excess fat around the abdominal region. The procedure involves a suction technique to remove fat and make the area shapelier.


Once liposuction is completed, the skin moulds itself to the new contours of the body. Skin that has a strong amount of elasticity will look smooth, whereas thin skin may appear loose.


Keep in mind that liposuction is a cosmetic based surgery and not generally recommended as treatment for weight loss. It’s best to consult with a skincare expert to decide if it’s the best type of treatment for you.
