How a Tummy Tuck Plus Liposuction Can Smooth a Muffin Top

That dreaded muffin top! When your belly bulges over your waistline, it can take a lot of the fun out of shopping for clothes. A muffin top can feel physically uncomfortable plus make you feel very self-conscious. If you’ve tried to lose your muffin top and failed, plastic surgery may be able to help.* You probably know that liposuction and tummy tucks are intended to slim your waistline,* but which one should you choose? Here’s why you might want to consider both.

Address Two Problems at Once

Liposuction removes unwanted fat,* but does nothing to address the excess skin that can cause abdominal overhang. A tummy tuck removes excess skin as well as fatty tissue, plus can repair abdominal muscles if they’ve separated.*

Many times, the so-called muffin top is not just a problem of skin or fat alone. It’s possible that both issues are working together to create your belly bulge. Having a combination liposuction and tummy tuck procedure can be a smart way to address both simultaneously.*

A tummy tuck combined with liposuction may give you the most comprehensive results.*

Repair Damaged Muscles

For many people, a muffin top might actually be a case of diastasis recti. This is when the muscles in the abdomen become torn or separated, which happens fairly often in women who have been pregnant. Diastasis recti causes a bulgy appearance that can be frustrating, since no amount or type of exercise will fix it. This is why muscle repair as part of a tummy tuck is becoming increasingly common.

Nonsurgical Muffin Top Help

Of course, not everyone is a candidate to have tummy tuck surgery. If you aren’t, don’t fret. There are non-surgical ways to deal with your muffin top. Look into non-invasive alternatives such as VelaShape™ III and UltraShape® Power. These procedures are FDA-approved for temporary fat reduction without surgery or downtime.*
