In brief: Resection

The classic operation for removal of fat is to cut it out.
Most commonly in the abdomen- referred to as abdominoplasty. But it can be applied to any part of the body. This is not a recommendation for surgery.

In brief: Freezing

There is a great technique called cool sculpting that freezes fat painlessly.
The fat is resorbed over the next several weeks. No down time results.

In brief: Wide range

Your question is broad.
Gastric bypass and other bariatric procedures are for massive weight loss for morbidly obeses patients. Liposuction is for normal weight patients who have localized fat bulges. So, it depends on what you are looking for. You have to narrow your question for a more precise answer.
