Expert "love handle" liposuction
When so-called love handles develop, there’s unfortunately no getting away from them. They are highly visible in both women and men. In fact, the flanks are Dr. Amron’s most common liposuction area for his male patients. Regardless of gender, the flanks can be a frustrating area of fatty tissue because they are difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Further, the flanks simply get worse over time if they are not addressed. The good news is Dr. Amron performs love handle liposuction, and not only is it an effective means of restoring a pleasing, fat-free contour to your flanks, it can also be used as a preventative measure so that your flanks stay slim and toned for many years to come.

I highly recommend Dr. Amron to anyone considering Liposuction." Patient Testimonial View Patient Testimonials

Flank Liposuction Overview and Benefits
The flank is the side of the body between the ribs and the hip. This area is highly prone to localized fat deposits. In some cases, this fat may be caused by weight gain, in which case diet and exercise may effectively eliminate the fat. In other cases, these so-called love handles develop due to genetic predisposition. In this case, there are unfortunately very few natural ways of truly eliminating this fat.
Fortunately, the flanks have several characteristics that make them very responsive to minimally invasive liposuction. It is a well-defined area, meaning that even a subtle reduction of fat creates a dramatic improvement. Additionally, the skin in the flanks tends to have good elasticity, allowing it to mold to the new, tighter contours following liposuction.
- All in all, there are many benefits to flank liposuction with Dr. Amron, including:
- Better contours and more balance to your body
- Slimmer physique
- Because the flanks influence clothing size, you may drop a size or two after flank liposuction
- Minimally invasive, with greatly reduced recovery times from more invasive forms of liposuction
- Incredibly safe procedure, performed only under local anesthetic
- Performed by a doctor with a long record of cosmetic excellence in the field of liposuction

In performing flank liposuction, Dr. Amron uses a device called a cannula. This is a thin steel tube that Dr. Amron gently inserts into the fat layer of the back. By moving the cannula slowly back and forth through the fat layer while staying perfectly parallel to the skin, he is able to break up the fat cells, which are then sucked through the cannula and out of the body.
As with every procedure Dr. Amron delivers, flank liposuction is done with minimally invasive tumescent liposuction. This means that during the entire procedure, only local anesthetic is used. You are not knocked out, and the procedure leads to faster healing and higher caliber results than more invasive forms of liposuction.
Flank liposuction produces different results in women than in men. When Dr. Amron delivers flank liposuction to his women clientele, it enhances their feminine figure. It produces a beautiful S-shaped curve to the lower back area that actually enhances the buttocks in the process. In men, flank liposuction serves to create more of a V shape when viewing from the back. Reduction of the flanks also delivers a generally slimmer and more fit appearance in men.
During the entire procedure, Dr. Amron considers all factors of your case, including skin elasticity and the proportions of your entire body. In this way, your results are not only beautiful, they are 100% unique to you.
