Getting Rid of Your Muffin Top: Lipo, Tummy Tuck, SculpSure

By: Austin-Weston


Many men and women suffer from the dreaded muffin top. Whether you have had a baby, experienced major weight loss or just want to feel better about your midsection, there are many options to reduce or remove your muffin top.

During your consultation, one of Austin-Weston’s talented surgeons will discuss the results you desire and make recommendations for what type of procedure will work best to achieve them. The ratio of fat and skin around your midsection will also help determine which method will achieve the results you would like to see.


SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring system by Cynosure® that reduces stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles.

Good SculpSure candidates have a small amount of fat, are unwilling to undergo surgical procedure and willing to accept a little less results than a surgical procedure. SculpSure works best in flank areas and typically require repeated sessions for improved results. SculpSure has no downtime and achieves about 15-20% of the results of a surgical procedure.


Liposuction safely removes fat deposits reducing or eliminating your muffin top. Whether you have a small bulge or a thicker layer of fat in your midsection, our talented surgeons can remove the fat creating a smoother contour.

A man or woman having good skin quality appropriate for effective results and a little bit of fullness make the best candidates for liposuction. Clients should expect a few days to a week off for recovery and take up to three months to see full results.

Tummy Tuck

If you have excess skin and fat in the midsection as a result of genetics, weight loss or pregnancy, a tummy tuck may be able to slim and tighten the abdominal area.

Great candidates for tummy tucks have a lot of extra, loose skin and wants to permanently remove it. After a tummy tuck, you should expect a minimum of one to two weeks of down time and up to three weeks on pain medication.

If you feel like you are ready to do something about your muffin top, come in for a consultation with one of our amazing surgeons to discuss which option will work best for you.
