Why are Love Handles so Stubborn?

Not all fat deposits are created equal. Some areas of the body hold on to weight more than other areas of the body. For those fat deposits that refuse to budge, despite diet and exercise, biology may be partly to blame.

Love handles are especially infamous for being impossible to lose. There are many factors that influence this. They include genetics, gender, hormones, and even age.

Men are more likely than women to struggle with love handles. This is because of testosterone. Testosterone, the main sex hormone in men, tells the body to store extra weight in the midsection. This results in belly fat and love handles.

In contrast, estrogen, the main sex hormone in women, tells the body to store extra weight in the lower body. This is why women commonly struggle with fat in their hips, thighs, and buttocks.

Because love handles are genetically influenced, they are biologically predisposed to cling to the body.

Because of biology, you may not be able to get rid of your love handles completely. But some methods will significantly reduce flank fat. When weight loss methods, such as diet and exercise, fail, fat reduction treatments may help.

Fat reduction treatments eliminate fat cells from the body. Popular treatments include Liposuction and CoolSculpting. These treatments are not the same as weight loss. Weight loss methods shrink fat cells but leave them in the body. Fat reduction actually eliminates fat cells. And once fat cells are eliminated, they do not grow back. This leads to long-lasting results.

LIPOSUCTION LOVE HANDLES: Liposuction is ideal for patients with extensive deposits of fat. While effective, Liposuction has many disadvantages, such as general anesthesia, scars, and long periods of recovery.

COOLSCULPTING LOVE HANDLES: CoolSculpting is a great non-surgical alternative to Liposuction. It does not manually remove fat cells like Liposuction. Instead, CoolSculpting triggers the body to excrete fat cells via the lymphatic system after those fat cells have been frozen with advanced cooling technology.
