    The "thut" on The Doctors

    The ‘thut’ is a unique term coined to describe the loss of definition in the hip area. Many experts blame the sedentary lifestyles, which contribute to a growing number of people losing the definition between their thighs and buttocks. In specific terms, the ‘thut’ is said to occur when the muscles on the back of a woman’s legs are under-developed, which results in the buttock and thigh to appear a single anatomical unit.

    As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie tells patients that it is possible to improve this condition with appropriately monitored fitness training and exercise programs. Dr. Motykie suggests that patients should avoid body contouring surgery or liposuction procedure to get rid of the ‘thut’ condition. The condition is not an issue of the physical anatomy, which could be corrected with surgery. But it is a condition caused by a lack of targeted muscle tone.

    Muscle Laxity in the Butt

    Dr. Motykie says that concerns of excess fat and loose skin in the buttocks are different from the issue of the thut. If the buttocks are lifted, and the hamstrings are well developed, there will be definition in the overall hip area. Muscular origins of the thut are a part of the postural support group that helps determine walking, standing and lifting movements. The laxity of muscles in this group, or lack of muscular development may be attributed in large part to a sedentary lifestyle.

    The gradual shifts in working culture over the years have led to a situation where a majority of working people perform their jobs while seated in a desk chair for most part of the day rather than working in physically laborious occupations. To counter this kind of work life, it is important for a person to exercise regularly. Muscle laxity can cause a situation where the butt appears to drop down into the leg, and causes a loss of lift.

    Not a Genetic Condition

    Dr. Motykie says that the thut is not hereditary. It is essentially a product of definition and muscle tone. If the problem was genetically linked, it may have been much more difficult to correct the shape of muscles. However, the thut is largely a problem of muscle tone and active use. Therefore, the problem is entirely treatable if the individual focuses on targeted and appropriate physical exercises and activities.

    Awareness about the Thut

    The thut has been widely recognized among fitness experts over the last few years. Especially since 2011, the condition has been commonly discussed among fitness enthusiasts and experts alike. The first mention of the word ‘thut’ in the Urban Dictionary came way back in 2007. However, many people are still unclear about what the term means, and how the condition can be corrected.

    The precise exercises and activities that can improve the thut condition are also not widely known. Some of the leading fitness experts suggest that an individual should focus on ‘squats and lifting’ as a practical solution to the thut. Some other experts say that any floor exercise that involves placing the legs behind the body, with the practitioner raising them in gravity can help.

    A suction device make your lips look like Angelina Jolie’s? [VIDEO]

    Fuller and attractive lips can significantly enhance the aesthetic facial appearance. Both surgical and non-surgical solutions are available to provide the desired augmented effect to the lips. However, some people may resort to unconventional or unproven treatments such as suction devices.

    Dr. Gary Motykie strongly advises against the use of such unscientific solutions that can cause more harm than good. Lips are an important feature of the face, and professional care must be sought for any cosmetic treatments involving the lips. Options such as suction devices can cause trauma to the lips, and the damage can be serious over a prolonged use of such devices.

    The suction principle is used because it can increase the blood flow temporarily. Therefore, any unnatural augmentation of lips achieved through suction devices can only produce temporary results that may last for about an hour. Putting lips at the risk of trauma for such short-lived results may not be a marvelous or such a clever idea, according to Dr. Motykie.

    Lip Enhancement without Surgery

    Injectable dermal fillers approved by the FDA can provide effective lip augmentation outcomes in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of a medical professional. Hyaluronic acid based cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are commonly used to enhance the appearance of lips. Hyaluronic acid is a natural, biocompatible substance, which can help increase the volume of lips and improve their shape and structure.

    Effects of lip augmentation with dermal fillers may usually last from six months to a year. The treatments can be repeated under professional supervision to maintain the results for a longer time period. The amount of filler gel injected in the lips can be controlled by the treatment provider. Therefore, desired lip volume can be achieved in a safe and precise manner. Filler treatments are administered gradually, and spaced over a period of time to ensure that natural looking outcomes are achieved.

    Lip Implant Surgery

    Lip augmentation for the long term can be achieved with the implantation of organic or synthetic materials. One of the commonly used materials for surgical lip augmentation is Alloderm. This natural looking material is inserted surgically through small incisions made discreetly on the inside corners of the mouth.

    The implant gradually integrates with the body’s natural tissue. Gore-Tex and other synthetic implants for lip augmentation are also very popular. The procedure of lip implants is typically performed on an outpatient basis under IV sedation. Dissolvable sutures may be used to close the incisions. Most patients are able to resume their regular activities and go back to work within a week after the surgery.

    Lip Lift

    Lip lift surgical procedure can be performed to reduce the gap between the upper lip margin and the nasal base. This helps achieve upper lip fullness by rotating the lip outward and upward. The procedure may be more suited for patients with thin upper lips who wish to achieve a better balance between the lips. The procedure involves a tiny incision that is made within the natural crease below the nasal base to lift and reposition the upper lip in a precise manner. Sutures heal quickly, and the patient can be ready to resume work in about three to five days.

    Bleach facial: Is it an anti-aging secret or a toxic trend?

    Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Motykie joins The Doctors to discuss adding bleach to an at-home facial: Is it an anti-aging secret or a toxic trend? Watch Video Now

    The Doctors TV show Motykie


    Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, says that face is probably the most important part of an individual’s aesthetic appearance. An attractive face contributes substantially to an attractive overall personality and self-confidence. Therefore, extra care must be taken to ensure that the facial skin remains preserved naturally and does not face any external damage as far as possible.

    One of the risks that many people take about their face is when they use bleach facials at home without any professional guidance or supervision. Bleach, as the name suggests, is a very strong chemical agent that is typically designed to make the clothes cleaner, brighter, and whiter. However, when the same bleaching process is used on the face, it requires thorough professional care to ensure nothing goes wrong.

    Risks of At-home Bleach Facials

    Most at-home bleach facial packages do provide instructions for application, but it may not always be possible for an individual to follow those instructions with perfect care. Such treatments are typically used when a person is busy or in a hurry to go for a social event. The chances of making an error in the usage or application process become higher under such circumstances.

    If the concentration of the bleach is slightly higher than what is recommended, it can cause damage to the facial skin. It may be possible to repair such damage later on, but it makes little sense to expose facial skin to such risks in the first place. In any case, a repair and restoration process can only work up to a certain degree, but it cannot substitute the natural, original condition of the skin.

    Before recommending the appropriate facial treatment, the experts at Motykie med spa will perform a thorough skincare analysis.
