Thigh Augmentation

The curvaceous woman is in vogue again. Breasts are getting bigger, buttocks are getting fuller, and there is increasing demand for a fuller, more curvaceous look to the thighs. Some women have very slender thighs because of genetics or a vigorous exercise program. For those who have this problem, we have designed a solution. You can obtained the rounded bottom again with your own unwanted fat.  It lasts and feel very natural. Now you can fit in to your clothes or jeans beautifully.

Above is the Anatomy of lateral thigh. IT Band is Ileo Tibial band.  The thigh augmentation usually is done by augmentation of the region over the tensor Fascia Lata (Lateral thigh region) with injection of patients own fat into the subcutaneous area.

Now you can obtain that beutiful round bottom and get the hour glass shape of the back using the advanced liposculpting techniques as well as fat grafting techniques done on the same day.

One of our young patients did this procedure and she was very happy with this procedure. Once she got stuck while trying to get through a anarrow space in a shopping complex. She was always to get through that space in the past without getting stuck.

The waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is the ratio of the circumference of the waist to the circumference of the hips. In realm of general health, the WHR has been used as a measurement of obesity; those that have a higher index are typically more obese and have a greater potential for serious health conditions. Research shows that people with apple-shaped bodies (more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with pear-shaped bodies (more weight around the hips). A WHR of 0.7 for women and 0.9 for men has been shown to correlate strongly with general health and fertility. Women within the 0.7 range have optimal levels of estrogen and are less susceptible to such major diseases as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disorders, and ovarian cancers.1 The WHR has been found to be a more efficient predictor of mortality in older people than waist circumference or body mass index. (Price GM , Uauy R , Breeze E , Bulpitt CJ , Fletcher AE. Weight, shape, and mortality risk in older persons: elevated waist-hip ratio, not high body mass index, is associated with a greater risk of death. Am J Clin Nutr. 2006; 842: 449460.)

 

Along with being a method of assessing general health, the WHR has long been used as a measure of attractiveness. Devandra Singh, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Texas at Austin, has argued in multiple articles that the WHR is a significant measure of female attractiveness. Women who have a ratio near 0.7 are usually rated more attractive by men from European cultures.3 Icons of the silver screen such as Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren, long touted as pinnacles of beauty, had a WHR close to 0.7.35 Singh proposed a hypothesis to explain how WHR influences female attractiveness and its role in mate selection, citing evidence from studies of the WHR of Playboy playmates and Miss America winners over the past 30 years to support his work.  In a 2010 article, Platek and Singh used functional magnetic resonance imaging to demonstrate that male participants looking at naked female bodies with an ideal WHR (approx 0.7) showed excitation in the anterior cingulate cortex, an area associated with reward processing and decision making. This further supports the premise that men appreciate curvy women and helps us understand the change in modern culture toward a more shapely and voluptuous woman.

Women have gone to great lengths in the past to alter their WHR. The corset was invented as a tool to reduce a woman's waist size to make her more physically attractive. Some women have resorted to hip and buttock padding to increase the apparent size of the hips and buttocks. Female cosmetic patients routinely employ liposculpture to help redefine their waist area. Of late, buttock augmentation has been another means by which a woman can increase the curves in the lower pole of the body to help achieve a more aesthetically pleasing figure.

The fat grafting provides you with natural augmentation without the potential complications of artificial implants which costs much more. Complications of artificial implants include, but are not limited, to the following: infection, seroma development, bleeding, implant extrusion, asymmetry, scarring, muscle damage, nerve damage (lateral femoral cutaneous), and compartment syndrome.

If a person has a lower back collection of fat or abdominal collection of fat these can be removed with liposuction and simply grafted to the buttocks and thighs to obtain a more attractive WHR in one surgery.
