Achieving the Elusive Thigh Gap

A slim inner-thigh, resulting in a coveted "thigh gap," is a feature many women would like to have. Rather than thighs that rub together (which can sometimes cause chafing), some women prefer a little bit of space between their inner thighs. 

Sometimes a thigh gap can be achieved through a healthy diet and targeted exercise. However, some fatty areas of the body are stubborn and harder to sculpt. Also, the width of your hips is a factor, so for some people diet and exercise won't be enough to achieve the desired result. If you fall into that category, thigh gap surgery is an option.

In thigh gap surgery, liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat, giving the area a new shape. Incisions are small, and recovery is generally quick. With limited downtime, you can have leaner thighs that look better in swimsuits and workout clothes, and certainly feel better in skirts and dresses (no more chafing!). You can read more about liposuction on our website, and then get in touch with us for a consultation to see if thigh gap surgery is right for you.

Meanwhile, there are exercises you can do at home to help strengthen and shape your inner-thigh area. As with any exercise program, if you have underlying health issues, be sure to check with your doctor before you begin. You can search for inner-thigh exercises online, like this one at

Male Breast Reduction

Breast surgery isn't just for women - quite often we physicians receive questions from men with over-developed or enlarged breasts. The condition, called gynecomastia, is very common, and can occur in men of any age. Causes can range from obesity and weight issues, to hormonal changes, heredity, disease or the use of certain medications. 

Gynecomastia can be more than just a physical problem - it can cause emotional discomfort and will make most adolescent and adult men very self-conscious. Some men will go to great lengths to avoid certain physical activities (the gym, the beach, the pool or even intimacy) to hide their condition.

The good news is, guys don't have to live with enlarged breasts. We can help.

Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure to correct gynecomastia, and usually involves liposuction and very small incisions. Depending on the amount of reduction needed, the procedure can sometimes be performed under local anesthesia with minimum down-time. The result is a better proportioned, more masculine upper-body contour, and the freedom and self-confidence to lead an active life. 

If you're interested in learning more about correction of gynecomastia, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons. In a consultation, the physician can learn more about your individual situation, your goals and what options may be available to correct your gynecomastia. You'll also get answers to your questions about male breast reduction, and be better able to make informed decisions about improving your body.
