Losing weight and taking control over the way your body looks is an incredible journey...but sometimes it helps to have just a bit of an extra boost to get you fully across that finish line, so you can truly enjoy the body of your dreams. If you’re noticing that your thighs and upper legs aren’t responding to your responsible diet and exercise habits, a thigh lift can help trim and tone even the most stubborn of problem areas.
Recovering from Your Thigh Lift
Before your procedure, Dr. Markelov will make sure you know exactly what to expect after your surgery, and we’ll set up follow-up appointments so we can make sure you’re healing up nicely.
On the day of your surgery, you’ll be driven home where you’ll rest for the first three days or so. You’ll be very tired for the first week following your surgery.
For seven to ten days after your procedure, you’ll need to minimize your physical activity as much as possible, resting and relaxing with your upper body elevated.
Swelling and bruising will start to subside after about one month, with your final results setting in over the course of the next few months.
