A muffin-top or love handles is overhanging skin with fat that spills over the waistline of pants or skirts.  The expression comes from being like the top of a muffin spilling over its paper wrap. Tight clothing in that particular area of the body with excess body fat will create this dreaded appearance.  The term Muffin-top originated as Australian slang in mid-2003,[1] but has since become popular in other English-speaking countries.

Treatment of this area with liposuction is one of the most requested and satisfying body areas to treat in all of the human body.  This is because the fat is more loosely connected to the body here making sculpting of the body here easier for Dr Sadove. It is also a body area which is so important in the commonly desired body shape. We call it the desirable “violin” shape, where the human body is more wide across the chest, more narrow at the waist, and then wider again at the hips.

Another reason for the success of treatment in this area is because the skin here is very thick with collagen and elastic fibers which allow for significant contraction of the skin after the fat is removed. For example, this is why stretch marks are not seem in this body area.

This area must be treated with an artistic eye from the surgeon. Ideally, the surgeons eye has been trained to see this ideal shape and draw the desired curves on the patient while in a standing position before treatment. As in other issues in life, we need to know well where we want to go, in order to get there.

Recovery is usually quite easy for patients and the results obvious the day after treatment.

The skin in this area is very thick and full of elastic fibers. The skin contraction in this area is excellent and the patient satisfaction is very high. To know more about love handles treatment, contact us.
