Love handles and muffin top: Causes and elimination

Love handles, muffin top, belly fat—regardless of their name, these excess fats sit over the waistline of pants, shorts, or skirts of an individual. The subcutaneous fat is usually the extra abdominal fat. It is the visible fat that can be easier to eliminate. However, in some cases, the visceral fats cause the bulge in the muffin top. Visceral fat is the “hidden fat” that wraps itself around internal body organs, which can be more dangerous and difficult to lose.

One of the primary reasons for the accumulation of subcutaneous and visceral fats is high sugar intake. Too many carbohydrates, sweets, and caffeine disables the insulin (the hormone that regulates blood sugar) to function well. The excess sugar eventually becomes fat and causes weight gain. Other factors that cause excess abdominal fat are sleep deprivation, imbalanced reproductive hormones, excessive alcohol intake, stress, and sedentary lifestyle.

Muffin top and love handles can be reduced by maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, stubborn excess fats can remain even after rigorous exercise and strict diet. Thankfully, they can still be eliminated through laser liposuction. Through this process, fat cells will be eliminated immediately and permanently.
