Although the widespread use of the term thigh gap is fairly new, it’s something that most people have noticed at one point or another. Whether it was online or at the beach, we’ve all seen women who have a gap between their thighs when they are standing straight. While thigh gaps have always been around, the reason for the increased prevalence of this term in popular culture is because celebrities like Alexa Chung and Cara Delevigne have taken lots of opportunities to show off theirs.
Since thigh gaps have gained so much attention in recent years, women from across the globe have become interested in how they can also get this look. If you need any proof, just check out Google Trends. While there weren’t enough searches in 2011 for this term to even be tracked, the number of global searches for thigh gaps increased by 423% between 2012 and 2013.
Although Cara Delevigne was one of the first celebrities to popularize this look, it has spread far beyond her and into the rest of culture. For example, most all of the Victoria’s Secret Angels have this gap when they strike a pose on the runway. And on Facebook, there are fan pages dedicated to pictures of thigh gaps that have hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of likes.
Being Lean and Toned Doesn’t Guarantee a Thigh Gap
Because the thigh gap has become a coveted physical feature, women of all ages have decided to pursue it. In many cases, women start their journey by committing to an intense regime of diet and exercise. Since this gap is caused by a lack of fat between the thighs, it’s not difficult to understand why many women take that approach. But while there are plenty of good things that can come from eating well and exercising on a regular basis, achieving a thigh gap isn’t guaranteed to be one of them.
The reason is that there’s no way to target specific areas of fat loss through diet or exercise. Even if you’re doing something like crunches, the calories you burn won’t necessarily impact fat on your stomach. Instead, fat loss is distributed throughout your body. And in the case of the thigh gap, since genetics have a big impact on the size of thighs, it’s possible to lose a lot of weight and still not have a gap.
VASER Makes It Possible to Target the Thighs
Unlike general diet and exercise, VASER Liposuction can be specifically targeted to the thighs. Since you’ve likely heard of liposuction, you’re probably wondering what makes VASER different. The answer is VASER breaks down fat cells before they’re removed from the body. As a result, this procedure requires less recovery time and provides smoother results.
