Flanks are a common fat storage area that can be almost impossible to lose without plastic surgery. The area directly underneath the ribs on the sides and lower back can accumulate fat deposits that are commonly called “love handles.” While the term sounds endearing, most people are not fond of their lumpy flanks and want those handles gone. At Ederra Bella, we offer flank liposuction to reshape your waist and sides at our plastic surgery center in Johns Creek, GA.
Your body shape is greatly dependent on your genetics and can be impacted by other factors like hormone changes. No matter how much you exercise or diet, you cannot burn fat from specific areas – your love handles may continue to stay even as you lose fat from other areas where you may not want to lose. This is when liposuction plastic surgery is the best solution. Flank lipo procedures are designed for those with stubborn fat deposits that resist shrinking even when you are a healthy weight, removing the fat cells and changing the body shape permanently.
Reshape Your Waist
If you have a thick waist or prominent flanks, liposuction can reshape your sides to create the desired indent or silhouette. Dr. Myla is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who uses advanced lipo techniques for body contouring procedures, including reshaping the flanks. She uses small incisions to access the fatty areas on the sides, injecting the fat with a liquifying solution to make it easier to suction out the fat with a cannula. She carefully shapes the lower torso by removing fat on both sides for a symmetrical, balanced appearance.
Flank liposuction can give your midsection a slimmer and more attractive appearance. For women who want a more defined waist or hourglass appearance, or men with love handles they want gone, flank lipo can achieve the desired effect. If you want to learn more about this procedure and whether it is right for you, contact us at Ederra Bella.
