Excess fat in a man’s hips are commonly referred to as the ‘love handles’ Although the term may be flattering, love handles are usually seen as unsightly on a mans body, and fashion’s low-cut trend tends to expose this area a lot, which can be a problem. Love handles frequently develop in young, and even slim patients or in middle-aged men, often with a certain stomach protrusion. Liposuction is an extremely efficient cosmetic surgery to reduce fat in this area, it offers dramatic transformations and comes with an extremely high satisfaction rate among male patients.
Is hip liposuction for you ?

Liposuction in this area is almost always the optimal fat reduction approach because skin elasticity is greater in the hips than others areas of the body. Hip liposuction is also frequently recommended to men consulting for abdominal liposuction because fat overload in the male abdominal region tends to surround the stomach in a circumferential pattern. Hip liposuction result remains permanent as long as weight gain doesnt exceed 10% after the procedure.
