Does anybody really love having love handles, or could you live without them? As fitness experts agree, there’s no such thing as “spot reducing” when it comes to losing fat on your own, and that’s why Monica Ovalle, MD, family medicine physician at Lincolnway Family Care in La Porte, Indiana, offers noninvasive SculpSure® body-sculpting treatments. SculpSure does “spot reduce” fat on your flanks, so you can say goodbye to love handles once and for all. Find out if SculpSure body sculpting is right for you. Dr. Ovalle welcomes both Spanish- and English-speaking patients to the practice. Call to schedule an appointment or book online.

Love Handles Q & A

What are love handles?

Love handles are the pinchable sides of your belly that create the so-called muffin top when you wear something with a fitted waist. They’re hard to lose, as they don’t respond well to healthy changes in diet and exercise. Both women and men who eat well and work out tend to lose belly fat easier than love handles.

How can I get rid of love handles?

Diet, exercise, and a lot of patience can help you trim and tone those not-so-lovable love handles. You can eat more lean protein and lift weights. You can also try to reduce the stress in your life, add more healthy fats to your diet, and take in extra fiber. But, even then, there’s no guarantee that your fat loss will come from your flanks.

The surest way to reduce love handles without surgery, without downtime, and without having to maintain an exhaustive workout schedule is with SculpSure body-contouring treatments. SculpSure uses innovative diode laser technology to gently heat fat cells below the surface of your skin, without harming the surrounding tissue.

As the targeted fat cells heat up, they die off, and your body eliminates them through the lymphatic system. After a few weeks, you begin to see an improvement in the appearance of your love handles, and by 12 weeks after SculpSure treatments, you’ll have optimal results. No more muffin top; just a slimmer, more sculpted waistline.*

How do SculpSure treatments feel?

The SculpSure device alternates between a cooling and warming sensation to keep you comfortable. You may feel a deep tingling sensation as the laser energy heats your fat cells, but most adults relax comfortably during their 25-minute treatment session. Ultimately, you may need a few treatments, but once the fat is gone, it’s gone for good.

Fat cells don’t return to the same place, making SculpSure a proven, predictable way to lose the love handles. Unfortunately, a healthy diet and rigorous exercise routine don’t always deliver the same results.
