Sometimes you don’t understand why – but fat pads and rolls of flab are there and hardly want to give way. Even a change in diet, lots of exercise and discipline often can’t do anything to them. Stubborn fat deposits, for example, on the stomach, at the waist, on the back or right next to the armpits disturb harmonious body proportions. They show under clothes and look very unflattering. They often make a person look “fatter” than he or she actually is by settling in unfavorable places. If fat pads in certain areas of the body simply cannot be reduced, this is often related to a fat distribution disorder. This means that there are more fat cells in these areas of the body than in others. Only their content can be influenced naturally, but not their number. In our private practice for dermatology and aesthetics in Munich we offer you 5 methods with which you can reduce your fat.
Reduce fat without surgery: device-assisted medical fat reduction
Getting back a beautiful silhouette with harmonious proportions does not necessarily have to involve surgical liposuction. In many cases, this is also possible with other methods from the field of body contouring:
Attiva radiofrequency therapy is suitable for removing smaller fat deposits. We insert a small probe into the subcutaneous tissue of the area to be treated. Radiofrequency energy is then applied to specific areas. This generates heat that penetrates deep into the tissue and leads to changes there. At the same time, we treat the skin surface with reduced temperature. Excess fat cells die off and are transported away via the metabolism. Attiva can also promote new collagen formation in the skin. Thus, the skin structures are tightened at the same time. The treatment can be used to specifically reduce double chins, love handles (fat pads) and fat deposits on the abdomen or back.
In some cases, one session is enough. Sometimes several treatment appointments are needed to achieve the perfect result.

Btl exilis elite™
Fat deposits can also be reduced with the gentle BTL Exilis Elite™ radio/ultrasound treatment. Similar to an ultrasound examination, here we guide the handpiece of a device in circular movements over the area of the body that is to be treated. During the therapy, the skin surface heats up to 40 to 43 degrees Celsius, while the deep tissue even reaches a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. This causes a natural death process of the fat cells. An advantage of the treatment is that the connective tissue cells are simultaneously stimulated to produce new collagen. The skin and connective tissue are thus tightened. With BTL Exilis Elite™, the skin surface is thus smoothed at the same time. It can also be used to treat cellulite, for example.
For most patients, satisfactory results can be achieved with four treatments at intervals of seven to max. 14 days.

Using focused electromagnetic pulses, Emsculpt can promote increased, optimized muscle growth. The treatment is particularly suitable for the upper arms, abdomen, buttocks and calves. Emsculpt causes intense muscle contractions in a very fast sequence, but with different rhythms. The muscle tissue reacts to this, it becomes stronger and more powerful. Since it requires more energy and there is a release of fatty acids, numerous fat cells may also die. The layer of fat that lies over the treated muscle area is broken down in this way.
Four sessions are recommended, each two to four days apart.

Another option for fat reduction is radiofrequency treatment with enCurve. The special device is placed directly over the areas to be treated, such as the abdomen, upper arms or thighs, and activated. The radio frequency emitted from it penetrates deep into the tissue. It specifically searches for fat cells. These are stimulated by the heat and begin to vibrate strongly. This creates frictional heat, which warms the temperature of the fat cells to 45 degrees. The cells are broken down at this temperature. Fat is removed via the body’s natural purification process.
Four to six treatments once a week or every two weeks are usually necessary to reduce fat deposits.

With the colloquially known fat-away injection, it is possible to remove localized excess fat deposits. For the treatment, we inject a special mixture into the fat pad to be treated. It causes the cell membranes of the fat cells to partially dissolve. Individual components are then removed by the organism via the lymphatic system and the liver. The body circumference decreases in the treated areas. The fat does not return to the treated areas.
For the desired result, it usually takes three to four applications at intervals of four to six weeks each.
