Are You Obsessed with "Thigh Gap?"

by Todd Case | Apr 09, 2015



Are You Obsessed With “THIGH GAP?”


What is thigh gap?
This is a term that refers to the space visible between the upper thighs when you have your feet together.  If you have been on the popular social network Twitter lately, some people are talking about the trendy term “thigh gap.”  Don’t obsess if you don’t have it.  Some of the most healthy people with an attractive body size have thighs that touch near the top including those celebrities considered to be the among the most beautiful.

A more healthy approach to living is to focus on your overall health and try not to compare your body to others. It is important to realize that we each have a unique bone structure, metabolism, body shape and of course mindset.

If at some point, you realize that diet and exercise are not helping to improve the appearance of your thighs then it may be time to visit your board certified plastic surgeon.

Options to help with unwanted fat:
Liposuction surgery can sculpt your body and is often combined with other procedures to create a desired and proportionate shape.  Liposuction can eliminate unwanted pockets of fact that are resistant to your exercise and diet efforts.

Common areas that can be sculpted with LIPOSUCTION:

  • Buttocks Hips
  • Love Handles Saddlebags
  • Thighs Calves
  • Ankles Back
  • Male Breasts Arms
  • Neck

When to Consider Liposuction

  • You have localized areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate with the rest of your body.
  • You would like more definition or a sleeker contour in certain areas of your body.
  • Your skin elasticity is good (Liposuction does not tighten skin but removes fat).
