Muffin Top Tummy Bulge: Fix it

Muffin Top Fix

Abdominoplasty surgery or the Tummy Tuck procedure remains in the TOP 5 most requested cosmetic surgeries. Tummy tucks also rank second, following breast enlargement in overall patient satisfaction. Reasons why patients seek surgery include loss of muscle and skin tone, sagging skin and a  tummy pooch or bulge due to pregnancy or fluctuations of weight gain/loss. Patients that I see complain about the resulting appearance to their tummies, commonly called muffin top. Surgery is sometimes required to repair these changes when exercise and diet have failed. The tummy Nipntuck procedure uses liposuction, surgical skin removal, and/or muscle tightening to achieve a flatter stomach. My patients reflect the national norm in reporting great satisfaction after having this cosmetic surgery. When this procedure is combined with breast restoration following pregnancy, it is referred to as the “Mommy Makeover.” I strongly recommend doing each procedure separately to insure proper healing and minimizing complications that might arise when doing both at the same time. Mommy Makeovers have become more popular in recent years as more women no longer accept the physical changes that sometimes occur to their body, often caused by the residual result of their pregnancy.
