The struggle is real. “Thunder thighs” is just one of the unfortunate names our less-than-slim thighs have been called.

You know that familiar pull across your pants or A-line skirt, and the ensuing creases caused by fleshy thighs that fill up form-fitting bottoms too tightly? It doesn’t help that on the Spring/Summer runways, fashion designers have brought out shorts and skirts in all iterations, from cheeky micro bum shorts to skirts with sky-high side slits. And August also happens to be one of Singapore’s hotter months, so guess where hemlines are going?

What can you do if you want to confidently flaunt your gams?

Exercising alone may not be enough to slim your thighs

Dr Ivan Puah, medical director of Amaris B. Clinic, explains that your genes and gender do influence the size of your thighs. He says: “Women tend to have a higher percentage of fat distributed in the lower half of the body.”

We’re naturally predisposed to having a heavier bottom – buttocks, thighs and hips – because it helps with childbearing. Still, we can’t help but yearn for a more slender silhouette.

You see it in the countless workout videos on Youtube promising to slim and tone the thighs.

But one of the biggest misconceptions is the notion that spot-targeted exercises, such as squats and lunges, can reduce the size of your thighs. “Do not confuse fat with muscles,” says Dr Puah. “You can spot-train your muscles, so they are toned and strong, but you cannot spot-reduce thigh fat or target any specific body areas for fat loss when you exercise.”

Here’s where Amaris B. Clinic can help. Dr Puah, who has more than 15 years of liposuction and body sculpting experience, has developed a holistic programme that marries surgical body sculpting with patented exercise therapy to help patients achieve their goals.

Vaser Liposuction to melt away stubborn fat

Ideal for body sculpting, Vaser Liposuction was introduced to Singapore by Dr Puah in 2007. It involves using ultrasound wave to emulsify stubborn fat. The liquefied fats are then removed via vacuum suction.

It’s touted as one of the most effective fat-removal procedures. In one treatment, it permanently and safely removes unwanted fat cells – up to 90 per cent of the pinchable area.

More importantly, Vaser Liposuction only targets the fat tissue in the treated area, minimising damage to the surrounding tissue, blood vessels or skin. In addition, it offers customisable body contouring to your body type and promotes collagen production to firm and tightens skin.

If you have tried various methods of losing fat in a specific area but are not achieving the result that you yearn for, we recommend that you come for a consultation and assessment to understand whether or not you are suited to the procedure.

We welcome you to call us and schedule a consultation with Dr Ivan Puah at 65364211 to help you achieve a more defined physique.
