Muffin Top No More!

Muffin Top No More!

There are a number of patients who are already in great shape, but still have some problem areas where fat refuses to burn off. Usually located around the lower midsection and the fat pockets above the hips, lovingly known as the “muffin top”, these areas are difficult to treat with exercise and can resist your best efforts to tighten them up.

To treat this common problem, plastic surgeons have a new device that works to reduce fat pockets without surgery. The technology is called Coolsculpting, and it works by freezing fat cells in these areas forcing them to die off. The non-invasive procedure involves a clamp-like probe to wrap around the fat in the area to utilize a targeted cooling process to the fat cells. The procedure is painless and takes about an hour; I typically advice my patients to bring a book when they come in, or simply to take a nap! The changes we’ve seen so far are fantastic, and only take a few months to be seen. An easy, non-invasive procedure can eliminate those evasive problem areas and get your body exactly where you want it!

Stay tuned, Dr. Wall will look at what else cosmetic surgery can do to get your body back after pregnancy!
