Thigh Gap – Is It Really a Plastic Surgery Obsession?
Who would’ve thought that being skinny could be taken up a notch? Well, according to a recent international website, plastic surgeons in Canada reported a 246% increase in patients seeking what they call a” thigh gap”. This is described as emulating thighs that are so thin that they do not touch above the knees. Victoria’s Secret models are blamed for perpetuating this alleged trend. Canadian plastic surgeons who are claiming the 246% increase failed to mention what the base number was prior to the increase so it is difficult at best to take this trend seriously. However, it does bear noting that the decision to have liposuction on the thighs should never be made lightly.
Are you considering liposuction?
Dr. Seify explains to patients who are considering liposuction of the thigh area that the sculpting of the thighs can be one of the most difficult areas. This is especially true for the inner thighs. The skin on the upper portion of the inner thigh is more likely to become loose and lax especially if too much fat is removed. The important thing to note is that if this is the case patients are unable to improve the laxity of the skin once too much fat has been removed. Also there could be a need for what is known as circumferential liposuction of the thigh. This would include liposuction performed on the entire thigh. This includes the front, the outer thighs, inner thighs, and the back of the thighs. This can be quite an undertaking and depending on the amount of fat removed, it is important for patients to realize that there is a limit to how much fat can be removed safely in one surgical procedure. Dr. Seify is careful to explain to each patient the benefits and limitations of thigh liposuction prior to patients choosing to proceed with surgery. Patients who are considering liposuction of the thigh are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation. Review all of Dr. Seify’s Procedures and Treatments:
