Will Inner Thigh AirSculpt® Give Me a Thigh Gap?

Liposuction of the inner thighs is a popular cosmetic procedure for women dissatisfied with their legs. Many women hope this procedure will allow them to add a gap to their thighs, which is so fashionable nowadays. But can liposuction help achieve this goal? 

What is a Thigh Gap?

The term "thigh gap" refers to the prominent space between the inner thighs of some women. This gap is created when you stand with your knees together. Some women naturally have a gap between their thighs, while others do not. In some cases, you can achieve this by exercising and eating healthily. Your body shape depends on the space you have between your thighs. If you are overweight, reaching your mid-thigh can help you lose a few pounds. Yet many women have a healthy weight but not that elusive thigh gap.

However, the desire for a thigh gap is not new. Women often undergo surgery to get rid of unwanted fat on the inside of the thighs. Although thigh gaps have no health benefits, achieving one can deliver immense satisfaction to women whose thighs rub together, something that can cause significant discomfort and chafing.

Do All Women Have a Thigh Gap?

It would be impossible for all women to have a thigh gap. Even very fit women sometimes do not have a thigh gap—a thigh gap results from bone structure, body shape, and physique. 

The width and angle of the hips tend to determine whether or not the thighs bump into each other. Diet and exercise alone cannot change the body's features all the time. Women, for example, may have little fat on their thighs, but their thigh muscles can fill this gap.

Age and fitness also play a role. Stubborn fat on the thighs or sagging skin due to age can hinder thigh development, even in women who have the right physique for thigh development. 

Women should be aware that their anatomy plays an essential role in the shape of their thighs. Some women will never develop thigh gaps because of their physique, but women who do not currently have thigh gaps can achieve them with body contouring procedures.

What Cosmetic Treatments Form a Thigh Gap? 

Liposuction of the inner thigh is a cosmetic surgery that allows you to slim your thigh down. This procedure involves removing excess fat from the inside of the thigh. It is important to note that liposuction is not weight loss, but it can help you achieve better proportions and desired contours. Ideally, your weight should approach the optimal weight for your height and body type, but diet and exercise alone will not help you achieve the desired thigh shape.

In inner thigh liposuction, the surgeon makes several small incisions in the inner thigh. A narrow cannula or tube is then used to remove the fat cells through the incisions. Finally, the surgeon sucks the fat cells out of the body. 

Surgeons perform the surgery under local or general anesthesia, depending on their technique. The patient usually feels no discomfort but remains conscious throughout the operation if it is done under local anesthetic. This approach allows patients to go home the same day and recover more quickly. 

After the procedure, patients should wear a compression garment as recommended by the surgeon. This promotes recovery and ensures better results. After the procedure, patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle will keep their newfound figure and preserve their coveted thigh gap.

Does The Procedure Always Work? 

Will inner thigh lipo always give me a thigh gap? For some women, inner thigh liposuction can help them get a thigh gap. But because every woman is different, there is no guarantee that you will get a thigh gap. For some women who have excess fat and skin on the inside of their thighs, a thigh lift may help. This more invasive procedure creates a more defined thigh contour.

This procedure involves removing fat and skin to reconstruct the thighs. It reduces excess tissue, makes the legs look slimmer, and can create or enhance thighs. However, surgeons will tell you that they can only sometimes guarantee this.

The good news is that inner thigh liposuction improves the appearance of the legs, whether a gap is formed or not. Women who have undergone thigh liposuction enjoy slimmer and more beautiful legs, boosted self-confidence, and greater self-esteem. 

Inner Thigh AirSculpt® Works Best

If you want the best thigh gap liposuction offered in Philadephia, we recommend you opt for an AirSculpt® procedure.

Inner Thigh AirSculpt® doesn't use scalpels, stitches, needles, or general anesthesia, creating comfortable, safer, and more precise patient results. A thigh gap is almost guaranteed by the use of mechanically operated devices that pluck fat cell-by-cell, as opposed to the manual scraping technique used in traditional inner thigh liposuction.
