Unlovable handles: You can not get rid of love handles or lower abdominal fat by spot reducing. If you lose weight a portion of that weight loss will reduce your love handles/abd fat. Additionally, core toning exercises will help you stand more erect & improve your appearance.

How can I get rid of loose skin on my stomach and love handles?

Loose skin: Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients with loose tissues after pregnancy or individuals with sagging after major weight loss.
