The appearance of a flat and toned stomach is what many people desire. Unfortunately, as we get older and our metabolism slows down, many of us are left with excess fat deposits. These deposits are usually most apparent around the midsection, leading to the appearance of the dreaded muffin top. “Muffin top” is a term that describes the fat in the midsection that spills over the waistline like the actual top of a muffin that spills over its paper casing.
Although some people can eliminate their stubborn fat from the abdominal area by following a healthy diet and exercise routine, not everyone is that lucky. This is why individuals frequently visit Dr. Trenton Jones at his practice near Salt Lake to get rid of their muffin top.
Also known as lipoplasty, this procedure involves removing fat by using a special tube called a cannula. As the cannula is inserted through a tiny incision in the stomach, it is moved around to disrupt fat cells. After the fat cells are separated from the rest of the body’s tissue, they are permanently removed via a suctioning device.
A belt lipectomy (reverse abdominoplasty), eliminates excess skin and fat from the lower back and hip area. In many instances, a belt lipectomy is combined with liposuction to achieve even better results. The outcome is a slimmer torso that is free of love handles, while the buttocks is raised and the thighs are contoured.
