It is a procedure that is continually being perfected upon and one which is overcoming the limitations of not being able to get the results you want from traditional diet and exercise routines.

If you are tired of sacrificing and punishing yourself for hours on end at the gym to still not be happy with the way that you look, it is time to make a change. Not only is SmartLipo MPX an effective treatment, it is also an affordable and non-invasive one. Usually only requiring a couple of treatments to transform the body, it can help to undo the damage of aging, restoring the skins tight appearance, and eradicating cellulite all together.

Love Handles, just reading the word makes you roll your eyes. Love handles or “muffin top” is that annoying fat that’s on the side of your hips that bulges over pants, and makes the stomach stick out in a bathing suit.

Since the beginning of time women have tried numerous ways to hide or remove the love handles.  But every time the temporary fix no longer works we give up, and go back trying to cover up those love handles! However, now days there are many solutions that can help hide, slim down or even permanently get rid of those pesty love handles. There are now several solutions from dieting all the way to cosmetic procedures.

If you are truly serious about losing those love handles, here are a few different ways to help:

Exercise: You can do as many sit ups, crunches and pushups as you please, but you will still never lose the muffin top. Unfortunately, you can’t just work out once and the fat vanishes, in this case you would have to put in at least 4 to 5 cardio exercises in a week. By doing cardio you are getting your heart pumping and the blood flowing through your body. Some specific exercises that are good for the stubborn fat such as the love handles would be: planks, side planks and muscle ball chops.

Cool Sculpting is non-surgical procedure that is injected in the specific areas you want treated and over time cools away the fat. This works best because you can treat the exact area of interested. This will require several treatments, but after a period of time the treatment works and you’ll see the results.
  • Surgical Cosmetic Procedure: SmartLipo is one of the new top trends that has a 78% rate of working. This procedure works by going into the doctor’s office and laser off the area of fat that you want removed.

The Latest Cosmetic Treatments Today


Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today for both men and women. HydraSolve is an advancement in this procedure, allowing patients to contour the body without many of the negative side effects of traditional liposuction.
