Santa Barbara Liposuction Highlight: Abdomen (Muffin Top) and Thighs (Saddle Bags)

Is your “muffin top” preventing you from wearing sleek fitting outfits? Do your “saddle bags” keep you from wearing bathing suits or shorts? The worst part about these “bulges”, for many people, is that they are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. No matter what you do, the stomach fat (“muffin top”) and outer thigh fat (“saddle bags”) stay put.

The good news is that these areas can almost always be treated with liposuction. Liposuction done by Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry J. Perkins removes the fat evenly so that the patient is left with a thin fat layer instead of a fat bulge. Small incisions are made in areas that are hidden such as the navel, pubic hair or under the bikini line. A mini “tummy tuck” is often sufficient if skin removal is needed to remove the “muffin top”. Skin removal is almost never necessary in the hips.
