Skinny Jeans are in, Muffin Tops are out

The winds of change are blowing and soon fall will be upon us! As the temperature drops, many women are looking to drop a few pounds to fit back into last year’s jeans. For those seeking to vanquish the “muffin top” that occurs when squeezing into tight pants, a cosmetic procedure like SmartLipo (Laser Liposuction) may be the solution. After all, there is no better time liposuction than the fall as post-treatment garments can be hidden under cool weather wardrobes.

For decades, liposuction has been done to remove pockets of excess fat in the abdomen, flanks, back, knees, thighs, neck and upper arms. SmartLipo is an advanced and effective liposuction technique using a dermal heating technique that tightens the skin beyond what is expected with standard liposuction. FDA approved in 2006, Southern Surgical Arts was the first cosmetic surgery practice in all of North Georgia and Chattanooga to offer SmartLipo body sculpting.

SmartLipo is just one of the body sculpting cosmetic procedures offered at Southern Surgical Arts and consistently ranks as the number one most performed cosmetic surgery by American Society of Plastic Surgeons members. Another body contouring treatment available is the tummy tuck, which is commonly combined with liposuction for more impressive results.

“Many times with diet and exercise alone, men and women will still have resistant fat in certain areas,” says Dr. Deal, a Double Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon at Southern Surgical Arts. “Liposuction should be more properly termed Liposculpture, as it is more about improving a patients shape than size.”

When choosing a liposuction surgeon, it is imperative to ensure the doctor is properly trained in the techniques used in the procedure. In 2010, the American Society of Plastic Surgery reported that one in four doctors performing liposuction were primary care physicians, of which 40% had no formal surgical training.

By working with a reputable cosmetic surgery center, like Southern Surgical Arts, those worries can disappear right along with unwanted fat. Both of Southern Surgical Arts’ physicians are board certified Cosmetic Surgeons with extensive surgical training and experience performing approximately 500 liposuction procedures every year.

Remember, muffin tops are only good when you’re picking them up at the bakery – not when they are hanging over your skinny jeans. Call Southern Surgical Arts today and look great in time to show off any fall fashion!
