Muffin Top Procedure Revisited
Dr. Linder performed muffin top procedure for the Dr. Oz Show last year. This patient is now two months postop with an excellent result and example of the muffin top procedure. The preoperative photograph shows a very squared appearance to the flank and hip area extending to the lower abdominal pannus. She declined to have an abdominoplasty at this time and had a straight tumescent liposculpture procedure in a bi-directional fashion of the iliac crest rolls extending to the lower abdominal area. Her muffin top procedure is shown, giving her a beautiful contouring and concavity of the iliac crest hip region extending to a softening of the flank region and the overhanging drape of the skin has tightened quite nicely without a tightening procedure or skin excision. A muffin top procedure when performed correctly, using small 2 and 3 mm cannulas, can allow for a nice recontouring and decreased pre-jean roll fat. The after photo shows a great thinning and narrowing of her mid-torso with the lower abdominal fat debulking and excellent contour.
