A huge difference exists between having a beautiful face and a beautiful thigh. For many women out there, we prefer having a beautiful face with matching, toned thighs.
A toned thigh does not really mean that it should be skinny in appearance, though there are people who prefer skinny thighs to muscled, toned ones. Having that perfect thigh simply means having a thigh that you are willing and free to put an outfit on. You can comfortably wear a gown of any length, put on a skirt of any length or shorts of any length without bothering to think twice. No need to hide your legs from view in a long trouser or skirt.
You don’t have to be always conscious if someone is looking at your fat thigh when you are out. I believe what makes us beautiful is how confident we are with our body structure. However, when you have that part of the body that excessively makes you feel conscious or unduly selective of what you wear, it is a good sign that shows that you really need to fix it.
One thing about thighs that most people don’t like is the appearance of cellulite on their thighs. This cellulite is formed when fat manages to pave its way through tiny holes in your connective tissue, the thick web of interwoven fibers just underneath your skin. Or as simply explained by MedicalNewsToday: “Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It usually affects the buttocks and thighs but can also occur in other areas. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. Between 80 and 90 percent of women will probably experience cellulite.”
This lumpy, dimpled flesh on thighs, hips, buttocks or stomach silently bridges the skin on the thigh making it look older than the other parts of the body.
For some people and some cultures being big and bold with fat thigh is most times considered sexy, but I feel it still depends on what the individual prefers and feels.
There are different causes of fat thigh according to some fitness doctors and trainers. Fat thighs can be as a result of emotional stress. Some women can be more emotional in nature than others. It’ is known that emotional stress can affect connective tissues.
Poor circulation of blood can also contribute to fatty thighs. There have been many statements by experts that poor blood circulation to your connective tissue, which tends to cause swelling, can also lead to big thighs. These swellings stretch the connective tissues apart, permitting the fat to bulge through this, causing fat thighs.
It is also known that cellulite present in fat thighs can be caused by an increase in hormone levels. Women with a higher level of the usual normal levels of the female estrogen hormone, tend to suffer more often from cellulite. Apart from directing extra calories to fat cells in your thighs, estrogen also weakens connective tissue. Childbirth is made possible when the estrogen hormone tenders the connective tissue around the womb.
But sadly, it is known that this same estrogen softens all of the connective tissue in your body, not just the ones around your womb. This softened cellulitis encourages bigger thighs.
Another interesting cause of flabby thighs is that many women tend to retain fluids in their thighs. You may not know it but fluid retention does not only take place in the stomach. Instead, it occurs in every part of your body. So sometimes, these swellings in your thighs happen on a chronic level that can stretch out and weaken connective tissue, which then results in flabby thighs.
To lose flabby thighs many women have tried so many exercises and these include Seated bridges or Leg raise exercise, Flamingo Balance, squats, Single-leg Circle, Sun Salutation, Piles, Lunges, Outer and Inner thigh kick stretch and many more. Some of these exercises may require a piece of equipment while others may not but can be done in the comfort of your home.
For some women like me out there who have tried exercise and it seems not to work, there is another way to see visible improvements on our thighs. Not through exercise, but through the process of liposuction. In liposuction the doctor is able to suck out the excess fats on your big or flabby thigh for visible reduction.
About my flabby thigh
Looking at me you will not imagine how odd my face seems to look from my thighs. I had big and thick thighs. It’s unfortunate that there is no way to ‘make-up’ our unpleasant legs just like the way we make up our face whenever we chose to. Another thing is that many people won’t tell you how your legs look, some may stare at it, others may choose to ignore them, while some may whisper about it. Unfortunately, that’s what our society has turned to.
I was seriously not pleased with the way my legs were then. And this created so much problem for me such as I was being excessively conscious and selective of the clothes I wear just like I mentioned above.
I tried everything to lose the thigh fat. I didn’t just relax or ignore this leg. There was a time I tried riding a horse for two hours the outcome was heart-rending. I had quite a heavy ache on my leg then which almost made me scream. Still, there were no visible changes that showed that I did anything to the leg!
Whenever I am taking pictures, I try to specifically position my legs in a way that they don’t show in the picture. It doesn’t seem to work because one way or another you will surely notice my big and bulky thighs in the pictures. And whether I’m wearing a long skirt or shorts, the condition of my legs will be quite noticeable in all the pictures.
Losing my fat thigh the Masterpiece hospital way
After what I passed through with my legs, I decided to find a solution to it and that’s why I opted for liposuction in Masterpiece hospital. Luckily for me, a friend of mine works in this same hospital, so I asked her if they perform liposuction for fat thighs, and how much it would cost.
She recommended that I should consult with the doctor first because there are so many procedures in doing it. When I listen to the doctor I could then choose the one that best suits me, which is also recommended by the doctor. She also said that in Masterpiece Hospital, consultation with the doctor is free. I saw this as a good opportunity and did as she suggested as I had nothing to lose except my thigh fats.
Doing the thigh Liposuction
When I finally went to the hospital, they were quite nice and welcoming. I saw the doctor was good at sucking the fat off thighs. His name was Dr Arm. He was such a nice doctor. He was still young, cute and polite. When I told him about my thighs heard me carefully, and when needed, he would give me his professional advice. After the consultation, I was satisfied and ready to perform the procedure.
I would have taken more pictures or videos during the liposuction to show you guys more. Though, I am happy everything went well.
It all started by me changing into my hospital gown. We went into the operation room and I was given anesthesia and other recommended medications. I fell asleep
After sleeping for long, the nurse came to wake me up to change my clothes and go home. The surgery was over!
While changing my clothes, I saw the white linen cloth wrapped around my thighs. I remembered and understood it because the doctor had explained before during the consultation that it will be wrapped on my thigh to keep the skin firm and not saggy.
From my day 1-6 pictures you may see small to some slight changes on my thighs, this is because it was still the early stages. I had quite a number of bruises but the doctor had explained that those bruises were normal and would fade in time.
After 7-14 days, there was much visible change in the size of my thighs. Also the bruises were also gone. I was amazed at the changes I saw on them.
After one month of performing the liposuction, there are now much more noticeable results than in the beginning. I went and have follow up visits with my doctor to show him what my legs look like and also to explain the symptoms I had experienced.
He took a before and after picture of my leg. And I said the changes were jaw-dropping.
Who would have imagined that my legs were that big before? I’m so pleased and happy that I took this decision.
