  • Dear Shanninka,

    Fat accumulations in the lower back
    aspect of the love handles can generally be treated non-surgically or
    surgically.  Non-surgical treatments
    include the permanent reduction of fat through the use of CoolSculpting, which
    freezes the fat; SculpSure, which heats the fat; ultrasound which cavitates the
    fat and electroporation, which electrically dissolves the fat.  These technologies, CoolSculpting, SculpSure,
    UltraShape and BodyFx are all available at my centre as we specialize in
    surgical and non-surgical fat reduction.

    The most definitive way to improve a
    fat collection is through modern approaches to simple liposuction surgery.  Performed under local anesthesia as an
    outpatient, little probes that emit a laser, electrical radio frequency and ultrasound
    can be used to liquefy the fat prior to its aspiration and removal.  These modern techniques called SmartLipo,
    BodyTite and VaserLipo make removal of lower back fat simple and relatively

    Of course, post-operative care a
    liposuction garment for 3-6 weeks needs to be instituted, but by 6 weeks you
    have an excellent contour, shape and form for near those difficult to lose with
    exercise and diet.

    you’re an American citizen we are unable to treat American clients and simply
    Google some of those manufactured device names in your local Illinois market
    and find certified physicians for non-surgical or surgical techniques.
