Love Handles

“Muffin Tops” or “Love Handles”? Call them what you like but we have NO love for them. We do have the solutions to ditch these stubborn areas of fat though.

How can Bella Vou help you to send your Love Handles packing?

Whether you call them 'love handles', 'flanks' or a 'muffin top', the visible rolls of fat that bulge out over the top of your favourite jeans can become one of the most difficult areas to get rid of without external intervention. Both men and women struggle with fatty deposits in this problem area, and luckily both can benefit from the advanced fat destruction or fat removal treatments offered by Bella Vou. From non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments, to surgical procedures – we can tailor a solution to rid you of your love handles.

CoolSculpting

As our non-invasive and non-surgical option, CoolSculpting® fat freezing treatments destroy fat cells without any needles and minimal downtime. Results are not immediately noticeable and ‘develop’ over a number of weeks as the destroyed fat cells are absorbed and expelled by the body. Adding a Morpheus 8 once your treatment course has been completed can help tighten and plump the skin through the production of elastin and collagen

Vaser Liposculpting

Our surgical VASERlipo™ procedure produces the most targeted results, giving us the greatest control over fat removal. Used in conjunction with Renuvion, our surgeons also ensure that the correct level of skin tightening is achieved for every patient. Despite this being a surgical procedure, the invasiveness is still minimal, requiring only a few tiny incisions for the Vaser probe to be inserted into. Fat is then removed through the Vaser Probe during the procedure and the tiny incisions heal very quickly, becoming unnoticeable over time. Downtime may be the longer of these two options, but the results are instantly noticeable. The surgeon may then target the area using the Morpheus 8 device which increases the production of collagen and elastin to further lift, firm, smooth and contour the body.

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

A Love Handle Treatment is actually a selection of different highly specialised treatments designed to achieve the results that you desire while suiting your body and your budget

CoolSculpting®: As our non-invasive and non-surgical Love Handle treatment, the CoolSculpting® fat freezing treatments destroy fat cells without any needles and minimal downtime. Each cycle of your treatment course lasts approximately 45min with little to no discomfort. Results are not immediately noticeable and ‘develop’ over a number of weeks as the destroyed fat cells are absorbed and expelled by the body. Adding Morpheus 8 treatment once your course of CoolSculpting treatments have been completed can help tighten and plump the skin through the production of elastin and collagen

VASERlipo™: Vaser Liposculpting produces the most targeted results, giving us the greatest control over fat removal.

Used in conjunction with Renuvion, our surgeons also ensure that the correct level of skin tightening is achieved for every patient. Despite this being a surgical procedure, the invasiveness is still minimal, requiring only a few tiny incisions for the Vaser probe to be inserted into. These tiny scars of approximately 2mm in size will fade over time to become almost unnoticeable. Local anaesthetic will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the duration of the procedure and in the week post-surgery, any localised pain can be managed through the use of paracetamol. Downtime may be longer than the non-surgical option, but the results are instant as the fat is removed through the Vaser Probe during the procedure.

Love handles are more common in people with higher levels of body fat. However, even people with healthy BMIs can have areas with stubborn, fatty deposits. Age, body shape and a genetic tendency can all affect your body shape and the way in which you lay down fat.

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon. There's no obligation to proceed to treatment; it's an opportunity to discuss any concerns and receive an impartial professional opinion.

The plastic surgeons will assess your love handles, the volume of fat and the amount of excess skin before suggesting a bespoke treatment plan targeted to your needs.

Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your specialist

During your consultation with the specialist who will perform your VASERlipo™ or CoolSculpting™ treatment you are given a chance to find out more about the procedure and ask any questions you like.

Step 3. Preparation for Love Handle Treatment

You'll be given individual pre-treatment or pre-operative advice to reduce any complications and support your speedy and healthy recovery.

It's important to let your specialist know if you're on any prescription or over-the-counter medications. You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory tablets, which can increase the risk of bruising. It's also essential to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes before and after treatment because they can disrupt the healing process. The team will advise you when to start fasting if you opt for general anaesthetic for VASERlipo™. 

On the day of your treatment, the team at Bella Vou will welcome you, give you a gown to wear and escort you to the state-of-the-art treatment suite.

Step 4. What happens during Love Handle Treatment?

The specific operation will depend on the procedures you are undergoing. Love Handle Treatment can include:

CoolSculpting®: The consultant performs CoolSculpting® in Bella Vou’s cutting-edge treatment suite. It is an outpatient procedure, so you won’t need to stay in the clinic overnight.

The treatment doesn’t need any form of anaesthetic. The specialist will place a gel pad and applicator on the chosen treatment areas. The applicator delivers precisely targeted, controlled cooling to fat cells under the skin. The cells crystallize and die. Over time the body naturally eliminates these dead cells to reveal a slimmer silhouette.

The treatment takes around an hour. As your fat is being frozen, it can feel cold and uncomfortable initially. After a few minutes, the area should become numb, and treatment can be relaxing and pleasant. Many people use the time during CoolSculpting to read, sleep, or catch up on e-mails.

VASERlipo™ is performed under general anaesthetic. The expert cosmetic surgeon will make tiny incisions in the skin creases so that any scarring is minimal. They will insert a thin cannula that uses ultrasound to heat and liquify the fat. The surgeon will then remove the fat using a gentle suction device. The VASER device emits radiofrequency waves, which tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a smooth contour that looks natural and even.

VASER Liposculpting targets fat cells, resulting in less tissue damage, reduced pain and bruising after the operation, and quicker recovery time.

Renuvion skin tightening is often performed at the same time as VASERlipo™. The innovative device uses plasma energy to contract the small ligaments and bands that hold the skin to the muscle, tightening the skin against the muscles below in a way that is a little like 'shrink-wrapping'. Together the procedures create a toned and taut appearance.

Should Morpheus 8 be required the expert surgeon will targeted the area using the device whos head has 24 coated pins which penetrate the subdermal tissue. The microneedles make small punctures in the skin, which trigger a wound healing response to repair the skin cells. As a result, there is increased production of the skin's vital collagen and elastin which further lifts, firms, smooths and contours the body.

Step 5. Recovery from Love Handle Treatment

Your post-operative recovery will depend on the procedure you have had. However, you should be able to go home on the same day. The staff at Bella Vou will offer pain-relief, monitor your rehabilitation, and provide support every step of the way.

CoolSculpting™: You will be able to go home and get on with your usual activities immediately following the procedure. You may experience short-term redness, swelling, and bruising. There may also be some numbness and pain, which usually settles quickly. Sometimes there the contour can appear lumpy or uneven, this often settles over time, but you may need further sessions.

VASER Liposculpture: You will need to take up to five days to rest and allow your body to recover. We include a  complimentary Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) session post-surgery in order to stimulate lymphatic drainage, reduce swelling and improve healing. The plastic surgeons will give you surgical garments to support your torso, minimise swelling, and speed up healing. You should wear these for around four to six weeks.
