Love Handle Reduction

Love Handle Reduction Roswell, GA

Fat on your hips and sides of your abdomen also called “love handles”, can be difficult to reduce through normal diet and exercise routines. Do you feel the need to avoid tight pants and shirts, or feel uncomfortable in your swimsuit due to extra fat on your hips and sides? Although many workout exercises may help with love handles, they may not necessarily get rid of them for good. With a minimally invasive procedure along with your current or added diet and exercise routine, the reduction of stubborn fat, or love handles, can help you say goodbye to wide sides. 

What causes love handles?

The underlying cause of love handles is fat retention around specific areas of the body, in this case, the hips and abdomen. Fat cells build up when someone consumes more calories than they burn; fat may build up in any part of the body, however, the most common areas include the hips, abdomen, and lower back, which then create these love handles. 

Many outside factors may influence this body fat build-up including but not limited to

  • Fluctuation in hormones
  • Sleep deprivation and stress
  • Age
  • Physical activity or lack thereof
  • Medical conditions

Losing weight can help any individual eliminate or reduce their love handles, so some lifestyle changes may be the best course of action. Love handles are not dangerous themselves, but excess weight may contribute to future health problems.
