The love handles on the back and sides are an aesthetic problem when you want to wear tight clothes or when you have to put on swimwear. Unfortunately, some people when they gain a few pounds extra fat is deposited in the waist, just above the hip and in the middle of the back, the good thing is that there is a solution.
Some patients may feel some discomfort wearing trousers, a skirt or a bra while looking in the mirror and seeing how these unsightly flabbinesses form on the back and lumbar area. Naturally, they wish they weren’t there because they ruined his figure.
Liposuction can be used to remove the love handles on the back that affect the silhouette. It is a matter of slowly sucking up the fat to sculpt your figure. In fact, it is also called liposculpture for this reason, as we are going to extract the excess fat that you cannot remove.
You may also be interested to know that the fat we are going to extract can be purified and re-injected into another area of your body. For example to correct a defect such as wrinkles, gaining volume or improving shape.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at people of relatively normal weight who wish to remove localized fat deposits. Therefore, if you are significantly overweight, you should first lose a few pounds through exercise and a healthy diet before undergoing liposuction.
How is liposuction to remove love handles on the back?
With liposuction it is easy to remove the flecks that appear on the back and flanks. The technique basically consists of making small incisions of about 5 mm through which we are going to introduce a cannula that can be of different shapes and diameters. This cannula is connected to a specific machine and is skillfully guided by the plastic surgeon to break up and remove fat by suction.
Any time is a good time to perform this type of liposuction. It is essential that you be of relatively normal weight and not have heart or breathing problems. It is also important that the patient has good skin quality, i.e. that it is firm and elastic so that once the fat has been removed, the area looks normal. If your skin hangs down, your surgeon may suggest an additional procedure to remove the excess skin.
If you want to make the intervention coincide with your holidays, bear in mind that you will be able to return to normal life between seven and ten days after the intervention. The results that we can expect will be visible in two months and the final results in around six months.
If you have love handles in your back or lumbar area and are interested in liposuction, we recommend that you make an appointment with Dr. Juan Martínez Gutiérrez, who will evaluate your case personally and will be able to provide you with an estimate that you can easily evaluate without any obligation.
