Liposuction on Love Handles Taper into Abdomen?

I am signing up to get liposuction of my love handles...i am curious, i have been told that when you get liposuction of the "flanks" that it is something that is only done on your back...i am wondering is it going to make my waist look smaller? i would hope so because that is essentially what getting your love handles removed should do...but how is that the case if they only lipo the back and not your sides? thoughts?

What are love handles?

Thanks for your question Love handles or your flanks are typically the area between your abdomen and back. They contribute to the side part of the muffin top. Liposuction can be an effective way to improve these areas. The best way to figure out what will be best is to have your plastic surgeon demonstrate exactly which areas he will be targeting. That can save you some confusion and make sure you're getting the area you want improved.
