Men have different concerns about their appearance than women. For most men their hair is most important. Followed closely by their abdomen and chest. Men who have fat on the sides that are known as love handles tell Dr. O’Toole that they hate them. Many have tried diet and exercise with little success. Dr. O’Toole recommends liposuction as an option for treating the stubborn areas. Dr. O’Toole offers both traditional liposuction as well as Smartlipo. For patients who have excessive breast tissue gynecomastia surgery is recommended. This surgery removes not only the fat in the chest area but also the breast tissue. This ensures the best result for the patient long-term. There are exercises that patients can do to tone the love handle area if the patient is not ready for liposuction. According to The Los Angeles Times your internal and external obliques are located on the sides of the torso. They are responsible for bending and rotating your torso and are used in almost every activity. To train them properly, incorporate twisting moves like this one.
Lie face-up on a mat or a flat, padded surface. Raise your legs straight up and bend your knees so that your shins are parallel to the floor. Place both hands behind your head, elbows pointed to the sides. On an exhalation, contract your abdominals and bring your right shoulder toward your left hip. Pause.
