No one wants to deal with a “muffin top” – that stubborn fat that tends to stick around the waistline, just above where your pants sit. A muffin top can appear for a variety of reasons (diet, genetics, lifestyle), but no matter why you have a muffin top, there’s just one question on your mind:
“How can I get rid of my muffin top?”
Liposuction for Abdominal Fat
Traditional liposuction is still one of the best ways to get rid of the abdominal fat that causes a muffin top. Here’s why: Liposuction can remove more fat faster, and with more control over the results. The surgery can be extremely detailed and targeted, so you’re more likely to get the contoured results you want.
Liposuction utilizes new technologies to help minimize swelling and bruising, so patients can recover faster. For example, some liposuction technologies use laser heat energy with their cannulas to liquefy and remove fat, rather than manually breaking up the fat.

When Can I Expect Results?
While every patient is different, most people can expect to see results about eight to twelve weeks after their surgery. Final results are usually visible at the six-month mark, when all swelling and bruising has gone down.
How to Maintain Your Results
Once you’ve shed your muffin top, it’s important to start tweaking your lifestyle in order to maintain results. While liposuction can help get rid of old fat, it cannot prevent the formation of new fat; therefore, if you still eat unhealthily or have a sedentary lifestyle, your muffin top may return.
We usually recommend working with a nutritionist or a personal trainer who can help guide you through creating a healthier lifestyle. Additionally, a diet filled with lean proteins and veggies can prove key to keeping that muffin top away for good.
