What You Should Know About Thigh Gaps

Following some negative attention due to unfortunate photoshopping on advertisements, thigh gaps became the talk of the nation. Genetically speaking, thigh gaps aren’t very common and can be extremely difficult to attain. Some body types simply don’t lend themselves to the sought after thigh gap – and that’s okay! Every body type is beautiful!

If you’re interested in working towards a thigh gap, the first step is healthy living. A healthy diet and frequent exercise can help you lose inches in the thigh area if done right. But if you’re looking for a surgical alternative, liposuction can help in that stubborn area. There are a few things that Dr. Brown wants you to know first….

  • Have realistic expectations. If you’re a curvier woman, a thigh gap might not be possible. We encourage you to embrace your full figure!
  • Liposuction is not a means to weight loss. Most of our liposuction patients have reached or come close to their goal weight and use liposuction as a finishing touch to contour their problem areas that just can’t be fixed with diet and exercise.
  • Love your body. No matter what shape or size you are, loving yourself is the most important part of plastic surgery! Our procedures are meant to enhance your natural self and make you happy when you look in the mirror. Plastic surgery will only benefit your self esteem if you have realistic expectations.
