What are the ‘love handles’ ?
The term ‘loves handles’ refers to fat deposit extending from the hips to the outer side of the abdomen and continues in the back. These fat deposits can be grabbed by the hands, they widen the waist above the hips and often make it impossible to find fitting clothes. Love handles develop more easily in women because they are genetically prone to store fat in this area, which makes it persistent, even with weight loss.
Why do love handles develop ?
Love handles are often the result of a diet too rich in sugar combined to a sedentary lifestyle. The body stores fat when calorie intake is grater than the body’s energy expenditure, which leads to fat excess in the love handles. Love handles are also linked to hormonal changes occurring during menopause. However, men aren’t spared either. At the age of 40, muscle mass tends to decrease, which paves the way for love handles.
Treatments available for love handles
There several treatments allowing patients to get rid of excess fat above the hips for a slimmer waist. Depending on what your expectations are, your practicians will recommend the most suited procedure.
