Melting the “Muffin Top”

October 23rd, 2012 Miguel A. Delgado Jr, MD

Have you ever put on a tight pair of jeans or pants only to have some flab hang over the waistband? Sort of like a muffin top? It is easy to see how the term became popular. For many Marin County patients it seems no matter how many different diets or extreme exercises one does, that stubborn roll just won’t disappear.



Liposuction remains one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures done, it is excellent for getting rid of trouble spots such as the love handles or muffin top. The younger patient with good elasticity will get the best result. However, the older patient will benefit, as well. If there is a lot of excess loose skin, it can be excised. This is a great procedure to include with a tummy tuck.

It is important to remember that if you don’t maintain a healthy diet and exercise, fat can come back to a different area.
