Remove Stubborn Hip Fat and Love Handles With HD Body Sculpting

Fat on your hips and the sides of your abdomen, also called your flanks or love handles, is difficult to lose through typical diet and exercise. From avoiding tight shirts and pants that show your flab to never feeling confident in swimsuits, extra fat on your hips and flanks can interfere with an ideal body image. With a minimally invasive procedure for the removal of stubborn fat from your hips or love handles, you can say goodbye to wide sides for good.

Only One Treatment Necessary

Skin Retraction & Tightening

No Cutting, Cooling, Ripping

No Permanent Scarring

What is HD Body Sculpting?

Our minimally invasive techniques enable us to use only a local anesthetic and pain medication to keep you comfortable, getting you back in action quickly with results you can’t wait to show off—most patients are back to work within 24-48 hours, return to the gym after two weeks, and experience fully realized results about four weeks after treatment. This treatment isn’t supposed to be a substitute for a healthy and active lifestyle, and people experience the best results when they are already near their goal weight.

Hip Fat Reduction for Women

The hips are a notorious problem area for women trying to lose weight—even the most dedicated dieters and exercise fiends have a difficult time getting rid of stubborn fat on their sides. This is especially true for women who have given birth, whose bodies tend to change shape drastically during pregnancy.

Love Handle Removal for Men

Love handle removal is one of the cosmetic treatments most frequently requested by men. When diet and exercise don’t make a difference for the fat on their flanks, men can turn to HD Body Sculpting for a toned, athletic physique. After the procedure, they’ll be able to wear fitted shirts without feeling insecure and pants that finally fit without flab spilling over the top.

Neither women nor men need to worry about sagging skin after their treatments—Our procedures stimulate tissue retraction and collagen synthesis to promote a tightened and toned appearance. Many patients continue to lose weight after hip fat reduction or love handle removal, and taking inches off of the stomach area can improve their endurance and flexibility.

The Best Candidates for Hip and Love Handle Treatments

Our staff will work with you during a consultation to ensure that you’re a good candidate and that you know what to expect before and after treatment. Many patients get hip or love handle treatment in conjunction with other procedures, and our doctors can help determine if treating other areas (such as your abdomen or back) is necessary to achieve your goals. The best candidates for love handle treatments are people who are:

  • Near their goal weight and committed to a healthy lifestyle
  • Generally healthy, with no existing medical conditions
  • Unhappy with their current appearance and have enough fat on their hips or love handles to remove
  • Able to rest and recover after treatment

Treatment FAQ

What is HD Body Sculpting
HD Body Sculpting is a minimally invasive treatment used to naturally contour and shape the body, normally performed under local anesthetic without the need for an overnight hospital stay. We specialize in nonsurgical fat removal and fat transfer for both men and women. We’re proud to have experienced HD Body Sculpting experts performing each treatment, all of which are designed around the needs of the individual patient. Our HD Body Sculpting procedures are performed in Columbia, MO.

We tailor each procedure to the patient’s needs, meaning you’ll always have our full attention. We help determine the areas that will make the most visible difference in the sculpting of your new body shape. We work hard to ensure you receive the kind of results you want—whether it’s an athletic, masculine figure through liposuction or subtle, feminine curves with fat transfer.

How does body contouring work?
Body contouring at Adonia Med Spa is done without surgery, and there’s no cutting, ripping, cooling, or general anesthesia. Different from traditional liposuction, Tumescent liposuction has minimal risk, BMI is not a factor, and the “Vibrastat” technology promotes skin tightening . Body contouring is the most effective minimally invasive method of removing unwanted fat from your body. It’s suitable for both men and women and involves minimal downtime.
How does a fat transfer differ from traditional implants?
Unlike a traditional augmentation, in which unnatural, foreign objects are inserted into the breasts, our transfer uses only the body’s natural fat to deliver far superior results.

Not only are the breasts augmented, but the surrounding areas of the body are minimized, enhancing the body’s natural curvature.

The natural fat allows for restoration of volume in the breast tissue that naturally falls as a result of aging or pregnancy.
The transferred fat helps reshape the breasts in a way that looks and feels natural.

Does HD Body Sculpting hurt?
Our cutting-edge technology enables us to offer a minimally invasive treatment that, unlike alternatives, doesn’t cut, tear, heat, or freeze the surrounding tissue, nor do we implant foreign objects. We use a local anesthetic (or oral medications, according to your preference) to foster a relaxed state during treatment. Keep in mind that every person experiences pain differently, so our providers assess each patient individually to help maximize comfort during the nonsurgical procedure.
Is HD Body Sculpting Safe?
Our process for natural body contouring is so gentle that the procedure can be done with only oral medication and local anesthetic. This distinction eliminates all risks associated with other body sculpting services (including anesthetic toxicity, perforation, tissue damage, burns, and implant rejection) to offer a completely safe in-office procedure that minimizes potential complications.
Does the treatment require general anesthesia?
No, general anesthesia is not required. Our advanced treatment process is gentle and only uses local anesthetic and oral medication.
How many treatments are required?
Because our treatment removes unwanted fat effectively, only one treatment is required to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking result. During your free consultation, the Treatment Coordinator and your Provider will take your size and body contouring goals into consideration to determine whether multiple treatment sites may be beneficial for your specific needs.
How long does a session take?
How long an HD Body Sculpting session lasts depends on the number and size of the areas treated. Generally, the procedure takes around three to four hours.
How long does recovery take?
We utilizes the most advanced body sculpting technology and technique available, recovery time is minimal. Most of our patients are back to work within the next 24-48 hours. While alternative procedures have an average recovery time of two weeks, our patients return to their everyday activities within several days.
Will the treatment cause sagging skin?
Losing a significant amount of fat creates space between your skin and your muscular wall. With alternative body sculpting procedures, the skin is unable to successfully readhere to the muscle, leaving you with a loose, sagging appearance. Our treatment effectively stimulates tissue retraction and collagen synthesis, so it not only prevents hanging skin but promotes tightening to create a smooth, more youthful appearance post treatment.
Will the treatment cause scarring?
Our treatment is minimally invasive and only requires several freckle-sized entry sites. These small sites are undetectable upon healing.
What are the side effects?
HD Body Sculpting is the safest and most effective tool used for liposuction and body contouring. The procedure is performed with local anesthetic, minimizing the risks and side effects. However, meeting with your provider to review pertinent health history will ensure that the procedure is performed safely according to your body’s individual needs.
Should I try to lose weight before receiving treatment?
Because our treatment effectively stimulates tissue retraction and collagen synthesis, to avoid hanging skin, we always suggest you receive treatment before trying to lose weight. Many of our patients have felt reluctant to pursue treatment before weight loss only to discover that HD Body Sculpting has helped them continue to lose inches after treatment. Additionally, HD Body Sculpting has been shown to increase metabolism, putting your body into a state more conducive to losing weight post treatment.
What happens if I gain weight after my procedure?
Although it is highly recommended to try to maintain your weight after your treatment, it is possible to gain five to seven pounds before you notice any obvious change in the treated area.

HD Body Sculpting removes superficial fat and fat cells, and because the body doesn’t readily make new fat cells past puberty, the results are typically permanent. Therefore, mild weight fluctuation should go unnoticed as the extra fat is either immediately processed or evenly distributed around your body. If you maintain an active lifestyle with a healthy diet, your results will be permanent.

How much is HD Body Sculpting?
The price for nonsurgical body contouring varies depending on the number and size of the areas treated. We are happy to help you set up a free consultation to learn more about the treatment that is right for your needs and budget.
Are Adonia Med Spa - True Body Sculpting treatments right for me?
Our treatments are best suited for those with stubborn, distinct areas of fat around the body that won’t budge no matter how much you try exercising or dieting. When you lose weight, it is usually most noticeable in your face and upper body, leaving behind more resistant areas such as the hips, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.

Fat distribution can be incredibly uneven, leaving some areas of your body more out of proportion than others. HD Body Sculpting helps adults of all ages, and it can treat most parts of the body affected by stubborn fat. It improves the balance and distribution of fatty tissue around your body for a more aesthetically pleasing profile.

Although liposuction can often provide very substantial improvements, it is not a weight loss technique or a solution for obesity. Any treatment should be viewed as a complement to a healthy lifestyle rather than a replacement for regular exercise and a healthy diet.
