The love handles or flanks are one of the common areas for fat accumulation in both men and women. This stubborn and unwanted fat is caused by factors such as weight gain, hormonal changes, aging, genetics and pregnancy, and usually fails to respond to even strenuous diets and exercise. Fortunately, liposuction is a proven way to get rid of this excess fat. Today, there are an array of minimally invasive techniques that allow liposuction to be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. In addition removing unwanted fat, nonsurgical procedures offer amazing skin tightening effects and also come with short downtime, minimal scarring and quick recovery. One of the most innovative options, BodyTite uses patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to address stubborn fat, tighten skin, and reshape your physique. In fact, leading NYC plastic surgery centers offer love handles liposuction using BodyTite.
Performed by well-trained and experienced plastic surgeons, BodyTite love handles liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits in the flanks to result in a trimmer, well-shaped midsection – without invasive surgery or scars.

The use of local anesthesia lower risks and promotes faster recovery. Any discomfort can be managed with the medications prescribed by the surgeon.
