Love Handles

Living With Love Handles?

Love handles can be embarrassing to deal with. If your lower back fat is showing through your clothes or “spilling” over your pants, it can create the appearance of fat on either side of your body, just above your hips.

Unfortunately, there are not many things to love about love handles. Most people who live with them want to get rid of them. Some can get rid of lower back fat is by eating right and exercising. But, if you cannot seem to get rid of that pesky fat no matter what you do, CoolSculpting® and our experts at NovaSculpting can help.

What Are Love Handles?

Love handles are simply caused by fat retention in your body. When you have an excessive amount of fat on your body, it can accumulate in different areas. Some people just tend to carry it around their waist and hips more than others, causing the appearance of ‘love handles’.

As stated above, diet and exercise can help to get rid of love handles. The more weight you lose, the less noticeable that excess fat will be. But, if diet and exercise won’t get rid of the fat that you carry in your lower back or around your waist, NovaSculpting, the leading CoolSculpting® provider in the DC area, has options available.

What Treatment Options Are Available for Love Handles?

CoolSculpting® is a great way to get rid of annoying lower back fat and love handles. The process consists of one of our NovaSculpting CoolSculpting® experts using a special suctioning technique right on the love handles themselves. This sculpting technique is meant to bring fat cells to the surface of your skin. Once those cells are close enough to the surface, they are exposed to temperatures that will freeze them.

As a result, the fat cells become damaged. They end up rupturing and getting absorbed into the body, which reduces the appearance of your love handles. There is no pain from the cold or sculpting treatment in NovaSculpting’s Arlington, VA, office.
