Love Handles

Love handles is the affectionate term for the excess fat that hangs around the waistline.

Unwanted Bulges

Love handles are another name for the excess fat that sits at the sides of the waist and hangs over the top of underwear and trousers.

Also known as a muffin top, these unwanted fat bulges can be caused by a poor diet, lack of exercise, alcohol consumption, hormones, genetics and age.

This fat can be a challenge to lose and for men or women suffering from love handles, crunches and cardio may not be enough.

At Meyer Clinic, our specialists can target this stubborn area through CoolSculpting®, the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment which delivers proven results without surgery, or downtime.

Our team of specialists can support this treatment, with advice on nutrition and supplementation if required.


Banish love handles for good with CoolSculpting®, the only FDA-approved fat freezing treatment. Fat freezing or cryolipolysis as it is medically known is the process of eliminating fat cells through freezing. The crystallised cells are then flushed naturally through the body. This treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells in love handles with results that are long-lasting and noticeable.

Nutritional Therapy

Healthy eating is key when you’re trying to lose fat in any area of the body. Eating fewer processed foods and getting more healthy fats, protein and fibre throughout the day can help attain a slimmer waistline. To lose fat and keep it off, a person must make lasting changes to their diet and lifestyle. Working with a Nutritional Therapist, such as our celebrity-endorsed Dominique Ludwig, can help a person stay focused and achieve their goals.

Health Check Up

An increase in body fat can lead to a number of health issues such as heart disease, diabetes and even some cancers. As well as storing excess energy fat cells produce hormones and inflammatory substances which can, over time, increase the risk of chronic disease. A male/female health check up with one of our GPs is an opportunity to create a plan to work towards optimum health.
