What is Love Handle Liposuction?
The bulges of stubborn fat on our back and sides, also known as love handles, seem to become more prominent with age and less responsive to our exercise routines or diets. Luckily, there’s a cosmetic procedure that can help you.
Our love handle liposuction in Sydney is a very popular procedure, as it offers the quick removal of areas of unwanted fat, with proven and effective results. So contact us today at the clinic to find out how we can permanently remove those stubborn fat cells and create a body shape you can feel comfortable and confident in.
Love handle lipo here in Sydney, is a minimally-invasive, fat-removal treatment that targets unwanted fatty areas. The procedure is performed using tiny incisions and small cannulas (thin tubes) to remove fat from targeted areas. The incisions are placed in the natural folds of the body, which results in barely any visible scarring.
Love handles are an area of the body that are often less responsive to exercise or dieting, which is why many men and women choose to have liposuction. The procedure is very quick and the recovery is extremely short, which is why it’s a very popular choice.
The main benefits of love handle surgery
The tumescent liposuction method used to reduce love handles at Lumière Cosmetic Clinic is a safe and effective procedure that only requires the use of local anaesthesia. This means that you can avoid the use of a general anaesthetic, which ensures minimal downtime after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any more questions regarding any of our love handle liposuction procedures please don’t hesitate to contact us at our clinic. In the meantime please see our FAQs below that may also provide the information you’re looking for.
What is the expected recovery time?
Local anesthesia is all that is required so you will be able to leave the surgery within 30 minutes after your treatment. This will also allow you to return to a desk job within 2 to 3 days, with no more than slight swelling, inflammation, or minimal pain that will subside in a few days.
Will there be any scarring?
While this depends somewhat on the quality of your skin’s flexibility, this procedure only requires the use of very small cannulas and a minimal incision, meaning the scarring will be minor, if evident at all.
Is love handle lipo suitable for weight loss?
