Skinny Jeans Could Be Harmful to Your HealthPosted on June 5, 2017
Skinny jeans continue to be a style seen on men and women both young as well as older. In 2013 they continue to be fashionable and are now shown in many different colors as well. According to a recent KTLA news story some medical doctors are warning against what can be harmful side effects of skinny jeans. According to the news story medical doctors say that an overly tight fit can actually cause nerve damage which could in the long run become permanent if it were not corrected. This occurs when one of the nerves which is on the outer part of the thigh is compressed. The pressure on the nerve will cause symptoms of tingling and numbness. Wearing the jeans with ultrahigh heels(which is the preferred look) can make the effects even worse. The high heels tend to tilt the pelvis which can increase the pressure on the nerve. Experts suggest that an option for those who love the look of skinny jeans is to choose genes that have Lycra or some amount of stretch built into them. Some patients consult with Dr. Kim because they are unhappy with the shape and contour of their thighs and skinny jeans would never be an option for them. For these patients Dr. Kim is likely to recommend liposuction of the outer thighs. This procedure allows Dr. Kim to remove what is often referred to with saddlebags on the outer thigh which can be like stuck on balls of fat. The outer thighs can be delicate areas to sculpt and the inner thighs can be even greater challenge Dr. Kim have the skill and expertise necessary to achieve a svelte and aesthetically pleasing contour to the outer and inner thighs. For some patients a circumferential liposuction procedure which would encompass the majority of the thigh is a better option to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing appearance. Patients who are considering liposuction of the thighs are encouraged to contact Dr. Kims office and schedule a consultation.
