A muffin-top is overhanging skin with fat that spills over the waistline of pants or skirts like the top of a muffin spilling over its paper casing because of tight clothing in that particular area of the body or excess body fat. Muffin-top originated as Australian slang in mid-2003,[1] but has since become popular in other English-speaking countries.

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.
