Love handles (also called muffin tops) are deposits of excess fat at the waist, often called stubborn fatty deposits, due to physiology; there are more fat cells in this region than in others.
When you eat more calories than you burn the excess are stored by the body in fat cells, and become the subcutaneous fatty deposits that are a source of contention for so many people.

Factors to consider
Factors like diet, sleep, and stress can lead to increased weight gain.
Diet – too much sugar, starch, and fatty food can be stored as fat around the waist
Sleep – lack of sleep can cause problems with the metabolism (the chemical processes within the body that turns food into energy), causing it to slow down, leading to weight gain
Stress – When you are stressed, the hormone cortisol is released, which encourages your body to store fat rather than burn it
Treatments available for Love Handles
Laser Lipo, cryolipolysis and radio-frequency are very advanced treatments that stimulate skin tightening and provide effective, non-invasive, fat reduction.
As we age, some of us will find that we have excess fat in certain areas. These areas are most commonly on the tummy, love handles, outer thighs, hips and under the chin or around the jawline; all of which are areas of the body in which weight is hardest to shift, even if you have undergone further weight loss.
