Do you struggle to feel confident in your favorite pair of jeans because of the unflattering bulges of fat that hang over them? This unsightly problem, commonly known as a “muffin top,” plagues many men and women, including those who lead very healthy lifestyles. Fortunately, there are plastic surgery procedures available to help transform a muffin top into a sleek and sexy stomach. In this blog post, trusted plastic surgeon Dr. Donald Hause of Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery discusses two popular plastic surgery procedures that can help improve the appearance of the unwanted muffin top.
Liposuction for Stubborn Fat
If you have excess fat on your stomach and around your waist, you may be an appropriate candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure used to remove small, stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Thanks to the latest advances in plastic surgery, there are several techniques available today, including ultrasound-assisted liposuction and tumescent liposuction. Dr. Hause can determine the best technique for you following an examination of your abdominal area, and discussion of your needs and desired outcome.
Tummy Tuck for Excess, Loose Skin
Sometimes, unwanted fat is not the (or only) problem that creates the dreaded muffin top. If you have loose, excess skin that can no longer shrink down to a smaller shape, tummy tuck surgery may be a more appropriate solution. During tummy tuck, Dr. Hause removes excess abdominal skin for a tighter abdominal contour. If necessary, Dr. Hause can also tighten the underlying abdominal muscles for a smoother shape.
In some cases, the best solution may be combining liposuction and tummy tuck surgery. A combination procedure can remove unwanted fat and skin simultaneously, for a more attractive abdominal appearance.
