Not in love with your love handles?

We all know that "loveable" holiday that is just around the corner, Valentine's Day.  For some it causes the reflection of who we love, what we love, who we want to love or conversely who we want to be loved by and of course we can't forget our deep seeded love for all things chocolate.

It is also the time when we consider wearing something that makes us look and feel "sexy".  And not by coincidence, it is also when our office gets flooded with consults for the endearing term used for lateral belly fat, called the "love handles".  We all have them but the simple truth is that most of us would love if they are gone.  

Minimizing the look of your love handles can be as easy as one morning in our office for laser liposuction.  Laser Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that is done in our office and has very little downtime with minimal discomfort.  The most recent trend is to try Kybella injections, which is more costly and results are seen over time but can still yield a great to areas that require a little bit of attention focused on them.  A more vigorous and ideal treatment would be traditional liposuction.  Traditional liposuction is done in the operating room and yields phenomenal results.  We couple our tummy tucks quite often with tradtional liposuction to cure people of stubborn belly fat, the "muffin top", as well as their "love handles" giving patients a corseted look and feel in the abdomen area.

FInd out if you are a candidate for the above mentioned procedures, schedule your appointment for a consultation with Dr. Capuano, which will be tailored to your specific concerns, simply call 201-820-5280 for an appointment.
