Shrinking Your Thighs
Feb 13, 2013 - 12:05:36 PM

( - Women's body image trends are always shifting and evolving. From Angelina's plump lips to the First Lady's toned and sculpted arms to Kate Middleton's defined tipped nose, pop culture and celebrities have a big influence on today's standard of beauty and fitness.

The newest craze to hit popularity seems to focus on the gap between your inner thighs.   Women are seeking everything from cosmetic procedures to exercises to diet so they can widen this space by shrinking their thighs and making this "thigh-gap" bigger.

There are a few different ways to achieve a sought-after thigh gap, including surgical procedures and non-invasive body sculpting, specialized exercises that target the inner thigh, and a regulated, nutritional diet.

Dr. Michael Diaz, a board certified plastic surgeon in Melbourne, FL regularly performs procedures that lift and narrow the upper thigh, creating the longed-for thigh gap.  Dr. Diaz recommends a thigh lift with liposuction, which would slim down the fat and provide a long lasting result. Worried about a telltale scar? No need- with Dr. Diaz's procedure your scar will be safely hidden in your bikini line.

Going the surgical route to get the thigh gap of your dreams is the quickest way to achieve the look, but there are non-invasive options you can explore such as the VelaShape.  Using a combination of Bi-Polar radiofrequency, Infrared Light Energy, Vacuum and Mechanical Massage, VelaShape is the only FDA approved non-surgical procedure available that is proven to reduce the circumference of your thighs.

Burr Leonard, creator & founder of The Bar Method, recommends exercises that target this specific area of the body.  Two of Bar Method's signature moves, the Diamond Shape and the High Heel Parallel, both target and sculpt the thighs creating a tighter and flatter appearance.


The Bar Method is based partly on the fundamentals of dance, so long and lean muscles are a definite part of the result. The longer and leaner your thighs are, the wider your thigh-gap!

An easy lifestyle change you can make to achieve the thigh-gap is to re-evaluate your diet. According to Franci Cohen, personal trainer, nutritionist and exercise physiologist, most women tend to store fat in the dreaded hip and thigh region of their bodies. But, this means that if you alter your diet to induce weight-loss, the first place you will lose will be your thighs!   "Generally when we gain or lose weight, the same specific areas in our bodies are affected," says Franci.
