Love Handles VASER Lipo
It may be an unfortunate name, but love handles are what everyone calls them and that is what men want to get rid of. Male waistline can appear unattractive by the presence of these unsightly bulges sitting above the belt line. Love handles appears unathletic, a sign of middle age. With modern low-cut trousers, it makes it even harder for men to hide bulging flanks. Male love handles are generally resistant to exercise and diet so the best way to banish love handles is liposculpture.
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we see male waistline, like all difficult to shift fat deposits, an ideal target for liposuction with VASER. Like many areas treated with liposuction, there is not much diet and exercise can do to shift love handles fat. No number of abdominal crunches or trips to the gym make difference, they are just resistant to change. Liposuction can be an ideal solution here. VASER liposuction is a reliable way of greatly reducing these fatty bulges that look so unflattering in the mirror in the morning.
Male Love Handles reliably treated with VASER liposuction
VASER Lipo is an innovative body sculpting option that uses ultrasound to gently breakdown the fat before being removed. VASER ultrasound technology effortlessly emulsifies unwanted fat, while minimally disturbing surrounding tissues. This selective process is critical to achieving optimal recovery and smooth results. Traditional surgical fat removal procedures have been more about mechanical toing and froing suction of fatty tissue, indiscriminate to surrounding nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, resulting in lengthy recovery and increased incidence of side effects. VASER liposuction energy only targets the breaking down of fat cells.
VASER liposuction is a safe technique most common for removing fat around the abdomen, or for gynaecomastia which is enlargement of male breasts, and for the coveted HiDef liposuction of the abs. During the procedure tumescent mix of salt water and numbing fluid is injected into fatty tissue beneath the skin. It completely numbs the area. Our surgeon then targets the unwanted love handles fat with VASER ultrasound energy. The focused ultrasound disrupts and liquifies the fat. This emulsification process makes it ready to gently suction out with a straw like tube called a cannula. Because the fat has been pre-liquified, it is easier to skilfully reshape and contour the area with precision and finesse. Patients are awake during the procedure and many enjoy seeing their unwanted fat leaving their body. The procedure takes a couple of hours.
Frequently the abdomen is treated at the same time, so the whole of the spare tyre is reduced. Love handles can be large or relatively small.
After the procedure, the patient wears a compression garment for a couple of weeks. Mild discomfort and bruising can be expected in the immediate recovery period and swelling may last for a few weeks. Patients are advised to mobilise early and return to normal daily activity within a couple of days. In general, the full effect of liposuction gets better over-time and is seen four months after the procedure is performed.
