Featured Image

If you’re like most men and women, you may have developed stubborn fat and loose skin over the years. Whether due to pregnancy, underlying health conditions, or the aging process alone, struggling with bulging fat and wrinkled skin can be exceedingly frustrating. While plastic surgery can produce dramatic results, many patients are interested in a less invasive procedure with minimal scarring and a shorter recovery period. For these men and women, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz and the expert team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the minimally invasive BodyTite procedure in Dallas, TX. Learn more about the compelling benefits of BodyTite fat removal, including how it can help with your unwanted lower back fat.

What causes back fat?

There are a number of potential causes for lower back fat, often referred to as love handles or side bulges. In many cases, more than one factor can contribute to stubborn back fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise. These may include:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Diet and lifestyle
  • Medications
  • Underlying health conditions

Is there a nonsurgical option for back fat removal?

In most cases, surgical fat removal with liposuction and/or skin removal with a body lift procedure can provide the most dramatic results for lower back fat. However, many patients want to avoid the downtime and scarring associated with invasive surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening and nonsurgical fat reduction using radiofrequency energy can be valuable for these patients, though several sessions are required for the maximum benefit. For patients who are looking for a combination of stunning results with a speedy recovery in a single procedure, minimally invasive BodyTite may be the perfect solution.

What is BodyTite?

BodyTite radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) is a breakthrough treatment for minimally invasive body tightening, fat removal, and body contouring. During a BodyTite procedure in Dallas, TX, which can typically be performed using only local anesthesia for patients, Dr. Hanz will begin by making a tiny incision near the treatment area. A handheld applicator will be inserted through the incision, and thermometers will be placed to monitor temperatures both internally and externally. Radiofrequency energy is then delivered to dislodge and liquefy the fat cells, making them easier to remove and minimizing damage to the surrounding tissues. This heat energy also triggers the body’s production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer, tighter, more youthful-appearing skin. Finally, the melted fat cells are suctioned out of the body via the cannula, and the tiny incision is closed with sutures.

How long is recovery after BodyTite?

Compared to recovery following invasive cosmetic surgery, the average recovery period after BodyTite is less extensive, shorter, and typically more comfortable. Following BodyTite liposuction, patients should be driven home by a partner, loved one, or trusted friend. Most patients take about 5 – 7 days off to rest and recuperate before returning to work. Compression garments will need to be worn for several weeks to reduce swelling and promote proper healing. While you may notice a difference in your physique almost immediately after BodyTite, the final results can take several months to develop as the residual swelling and inflammation resolve.
