A romantic romp on Valentines Day has sparked a crisis of confidence in thousands of women who are now looking for a quick fix to ditch their love handles, according to a leading non-surgical cosmetic doctor.

Dr Ravi Jain, a former GP and Medical Director at the award winning Riverbanks Clinic in Harpenden, says he often sees a surge in enquiries about treatments for love handles in the weeks immediately after Valentines Day, and believes it is down to ‘bikini syndrome’, when women notice their extra lumps and bumps a little more.

“The cold winter months mean that many women keep themselves wrapped up and so tend to forget about their body worries. Valentine’s Day is typically the first day in the year when women really want to look good naked and that’s when they start noticing things about themselves that they want to change”, says Dr Jain.

Despite reports that women with love handles are healthier, are able to deal with stress better and be more successful at work, Dr Jain claims that many women find love handles more upsetting than any other body concern and treatment can help women regain confidence and get back on track with their fitness regime.

“A good diet and fitness regime is always by far the best way to keep your body in trim naturally, but sometimes women just need a helping hand to get back on the right track. With the summer fast approaching, it is a great time start working towards your ideal shape and Smartlipo or Vaser each provide a way to boost your confidence by delivering an immediate improvement”, says Dr Jain, who is one of only a handful of specialists trained in Smartlipo and Vaser in the UK.

Radical improvements in non-invasive treatments for love handles mean that women don’t need to worry about going under the knife either. Unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo or Vaser treatments are both minimally invasive and work using a laser. Treatment doesn't take very long at all. Smartlipo can be carried out in as little as an hour, plus it leaves virtually no marks. However, Vaser can take longer as this is used for larger areas of the body.
