Make Love Handles a Thing of the Past with CoolSculpting® Treatments
Despite their name, most people don’t love their love handles. Not only that, but they are notoriously stubborn when it comes to reducing their size with traditional body sculpting methods, like diet and exercise. Fortunately, modern aesthetic medicine makes it possible for patients to finally trim down their most troublesome areas – like the love handles – in a more convenient way than ever. Unlike liposuction and other surgical procedures, CoolSculpting offers patients a completely nonsurgical, noninvasive solution for reducing excess fat and achieving the slimmer, sexier silhouette they desire. At JEM Medspa Indiana in Munster, IN, our dedicated aesthetic team, under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Dreyfuss, offers CoolSculpting nonsurgical fat reduction for the love handles and other problem areas you’d like to trim down.
What are love handles?
The deposits of excess fat on the hips, often protruding just above the waistband of a person’s pants, are commonly referred to as “love handles.” For many patients, love handles are a major source of frustration, as they can make it difficult to wear certain styles of clothing and are known, in many cases, for being resistant to diet and exercise.
How can I get rid of love handles without surgery?
Liposuction surgery is a popular choice for patients looking to slim down their waistline, but there are many men and women who prefer not to go under the knife or may not be eligible for surgery and/or anesthesia. For these patients, nonsurgical CoolSculpting may be an exciting solution for reducing the love handles and other areas of stubborn, diet- and exercise-resistant fat.
How does CoolSculpting work for the love handles?
CoolSculpting uses cutting-edge cryolipolysis technology to effectively “freeze” unwanted fat cells. During the completely nonsurgical treatment, the CoolSculpting applicators are applied to the target treatment areas. Gentle suction first works to bring fat cells closer to the surface of the skin, which is followed by the cooling process. This involves cooling the cells to a precise temperature in order to destroy them. Over the course of several weeks or months, these fat cells will be flushed from the body naturally, and patients will begin to notice their slimmer contours taking shape.
How much fat can I lose with CoolSculpting?
On average, patients can expect to lose up to 20 – 25% of fat in each CoolSculpting treatment area. Subsequent sessions may provide even more dramatic results.
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting for my love handles?
Thanks to its nonsurgical nature and the fact that no medications or other substances are used, CoolSculpting is generally considered a safe procedure for most people. Ideal candidates for love handle reduction with CoolSculpting should be:
- At or near their goal weight (within about 30 pounds)
- Have stubborn love handles that have not responded to diet and exercise as expected
- Have good existing skin elasticity
- Prefer a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction
- Desire a treatment with no downtime
- Have realistic expectations for their results
