The area between the bottom of the rib cage and the top of the waist is targeted by flank liposuction. The technique is helpful for people who are seeking to lose stubborn body fat that is resistant to dieting and regular exercise. To perform the surgery, patients must be in good general health and near to their desired weight to be eligible.

Patients can return to work in few days, though they may experience discomfort in the weeks after the treatment. Body fat accumulates in the lower middle of the body. Dieting and regular exercise can be difficult to lose this weight, which is why liposuction is done


Flank liposuction is a joint outpatient surgery that eliminates fat from the sides and back of the waistline with minimum scarring. Men utilize the technique to produce a V-shape from their shoulders to their waist, giving them a leaner and fit appearance. It aids ladies in achieving the desired S-shape by narrowing the waist at the sides. The technique necessitates the use of general anesthesia. Once you are ready for liposuction, the doctor will make a few small incisions along the sides of your waist and insert a thin tube called a cannula to suction the fat cells from your body.


Liposuction operation is very efficient to slim the waistline and getting rid of love handles, although outcomes vary depending on the patient’s age and overall health. If you have had liposuction to slim down your waistline after a significant weight loss, your skin may take a long time to acclimate to your new body form.

Q1 Is there surgery to remove love handles?
A1 Usually, the love handles are removed or reduced with a liposuction procedure lasting one or two hours. What is Love Handle Liposuction? Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery used to remove excess, unwanted fat using suction.

Q2 Do love handles come back after lipo?
A2 Fat will not return (and ideal results will remain intact) if the patient maintains their “post-lipo weight.” For example, if a patient weighed 130 pounds prior liposuction and had a total of 6 pounds removed through the procedure, fat will stay away if the patient maintains their weight at or below 124 pounds.

Q3 Is flank lipo painful?
A3 Recovery from Liposuction
Everyone is different, but the procedure is well tolerated. Most people are able to go back to work after about 3-4 days. It is not terribly painful, but you will be sore after the surgery. After surgery, we recommend that you begin walking the same day to reduce your risk of complications.
