Clients’ Testimonials

I have absolutely nothing but amazing things to say about my experience at Millenial! I was turned down by a few surgeons for their lack of knowledge with trans bodies before I was able to get consultation with Millenial. Their experience in feminizing the body with lipo 360 and bbl sold me and it was worth the wait! So so happy I decided to go with Millenial the staff was incredible

What Is Love Handles Liposuction?

Fat removal or liposuction is a fast and effective method when you’re worried about how to get rid of love handles. This minimally invasive surgery allows you to say goodbye to your love handles and gets you back into those flattering, figure hugging clothes once more. Best of all, the results are permanent.

Your love handles removal surgery lasts between one and four hours, depending on the amount of fat to be removed. The procedure involves a process that typically includes:

  1. The area to be treated is numbed to ensure your comfort.
  2. At most, you may experience light pressure during the procedure.
  3. Your best New York plastic surgeon makes several small nicks in the area being treated.
  4. A cannula, which is a long, thin metal tube, is inserted into the skin and used to suction fat from the areas being treated.
  5. The nicks in the skin are then sutured shut.
  6. You’re monitored following the procedure and then released to go home to recover.

Before leaving, you’re given a compression garment to wear for a few weeks as you heal, which reduces swelling and supports your new shape. Post-op discomfort is minimal and easily manageable. You receive the highest level of care from Dr. Shokrian and his team before, during and after your procedure.

What Causes Love Handles?

To figure out how to get rid of love handles, you may try endless crunches and working tirelessly on the ab machine at the gym. You may relentlessly diet and constantly restrict your carb intake. You eventually discover that nothing erases that unwanted fat. The reasons love handles develop include:

  • Aging
  • Genetic factors
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal changes
  • Unhealthy lifestyle

With many of these factors beyond your control, liposuction becomes an attractive option. The same holds true for other parts of your body. Consider more extensive body shaping to remove fat from other areas. You can combine love handles liposuction with other procedures offered by your NYC cosmetic surgeon, such as a:

What Does Recovery from Love Handles Liposuction Involve?

Recovery from liposuction doesn’t keep you down for long. The procedure is effective and fast, but it’s still a minor surgery, so some recovery time is to be expected. You’ll receive comprehensive aftercare from Millennial Plastic Surgery, including full post-procedural instructions, that include:

  • Making all your follow-up visits to ensure you’re healing properly
  • Asking a friend or loved one to take you to and from your procedure
  • Preparing for your homecoming by arranging a recovery area with entertainment and leisure activities
  • Having some easy-to-prepare meals ready
  • Collecting any prescribed medications beforehand, including pain meds, as you’ll probably feel a little sore for a day or two
  • Wearing your compression garment as directed to reduce the expected swelling that diminishes within about 90 days
  • Expecting bruising to last a couple weeks
  • Noticing an immediate reduction in the size of your love handles

You can be back to work within a week. The full recovery period depends on the amount of fat you’ve had removed. You need to wait for a further couple of weeks before getting back to your normal levels of physical activity and exercise, but do start taking gentle walks from day one.
