Get Rid of Muffin Top with Tummy Nipntuck

March 28th, 2012

The Oxford English dictionary was recently updated with about 900 new words.  According to the Chicago Tribune, Muffin Top is one of the new entries and it is defined as a protuberance of flesh above the waistband.

Tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty reduces the abdominal protrusion that is affectionately called muffin top. This Tummy Nipntuck uses liposuction, surgical skin removal, and/or muscle tightening to achieve a flatter stomach. People develop protruding abdomens due to extra skin, fat and weakened muscles. The cause is often due to pregnancy and/or fluctuations of weight and many patients turn to tummy tuck surgery to give them a more natural appearance.

Patient Comment: Tummy Nipntuck

September 14th, 2011

Teri writes:

I am now 6 months from my abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery last March.  After  losing 112 pounds,  I had quite a bit of extra skin.  Dr. Bashioum and his staff took care of this for me.  He tightened up the ‘lazy’ muscles and tightened up the skin.  It looks great!

I would recommend Dr. Bashioum to everyone.  He and all of the staff did a great job!

Dr. Bashioum replies:

Thank you for your kind comments, Teri.  Over 150,000 women chose tummy nipntucks in the US each year.  Many patients opt for this surgery as part of the mommy make-over , while others have lost a significant amount of weight like Teri has done before considering surgery.  I find that patient satisfaction is extremely high following this kind of surgery.
