Now here’s something we didn’t expect to hear! Earlier this month, Beyoncé infamously Instagramed a photo showing a suspicious “thigh gap,” which led to outrage and fans calling out the singer on the reported Photoshop mishap.
But it didn’t seem to bother the 32-year-old. Instead, Queen Bey’s response was to continue posting bikini photos that showed off her bodacious body we all know and love. Well, it turns out that the “thigh gap” seen around the world is now becoming a cosmetic surgery trend. No, we’re not kidding.
Don’t believe us? Dr. Aaron Rollins in Beverly Hills recently explained to Inside Edition that yes, the “thigh gap” is becoming a world-wide cosmetic surgery trend. Who can you thank for that? Stars including Bey and Sofia Vergara.
“We are seeing a major increase in interest because people are finally realizing this is possible,” he said. “We can take all of this. This is a big change. It's going to be dramatic all the way down from your knee to up here.”
According to Dr. Rollins, the procedure only takes about an hour thanks to cutting-edge technology, which is a new form of liposuction. It only entails tiny punctures where a laser is inserted and rotated over a thousand times a minute. Ouch!
The recovery time takes about six weeks, but we can’t help but think that with Photoshop, no recovery time is needed. Better yet, no needles or a laser. Just saying.
Who knew that something as small as an Instagram photo of a “thigh gap” would lead to a surgical trend? Looks like Bey doesn’t realize just how influential she really is! Or does she? Gasp.
