Inner Thigh Lift Pre-Op Pic.



Recommended Posts

Its strange but only 2 days to go till i get some non saggy legs and already the emotions are all over the place. I wasnt worried at all about my previous very lengthy surgery for my Abdominoplasty and my brachioplasty but this bilateral thigh lift really has me in a more tense and anxious state. I know deep down i will be ok but i am not sleeping and my nerves are all on edge, i just want it over and done with now, i hate waiting around.

My surgery isnt till thursday afternoon so i have a lot of waiting around to do thursday morning.. My cold and chest infection seem to have cleared up so i dont think that will be an issue now so all should go ahead as planned thursday. I am trying to keep busy till then just to stop me clock watching ..This is the time where i would love a ciggie to calm my nerves or a large bar of chocolate to take my mind off of things ! thanks for all your nice comments and good wishes, they are very much appreciated :)

Back home today and feeling very well but tired. I am wearing compression stockings and on top of therm compression leggings and although a little sore, pain is very bearable, just on normal pain killers now if needed. Worst pain was the drains and getting them removed, but instant relief once they were out. Legs have swollen a little bit but i lost over 6lbs of excess skin so had a lot cut off. Shape looks really good even with the swelling so am very pleased with how things worked out.

My last job will be my saggy breasts and now my legs are done i notice my breasts even more and they will drive me mad if i dont get them done so next year when my surgeon is back from maternity leave the breasts will be done and i will be finished then, financially and physically lol

I am 58 yrs old and this still feels right to do even at my age !

are these compression garments before or after your surgery? Are they like Spanx? I have the horrible loose skin on my thighs also 1 leg is a little larger than the other. Have had several hip and leg surgeries on one side> I want to wear a bathing suit.....shorts. Does insurance cover this if its a walking problem?

hope yours went well.

The compression garments are from marena a US company even tho i am in the UK, they are the best compression u can get. I wear the leggings which are the same compression as the surgical garments, their website is

http://marenagroup.com/garmentstore/product/tabid/199/p-110-shapzme-womens-leggings.aspx

these garments are perfect for flabby skin on legs !

I had some recent problems with my leg scars, 3 weeks post op i developed severe allergies to the dressings and i had 4 retained stitches which turned into stitch abscesses. A week later i am now much better, anti biotics and changing dressings daily my legs are nearly healed now.

They look a little strange tho as i have the tanned front of my legs now meeting the white skin from the back of my legs lol, thank god its winter now !

will post some more pics when i get rid of the dressings ... i wear the compression leggings all the time and they are wonderful.

Worst part is getting the darn leggings on, u need strength and muscles to do it lol.

Wow Cazzy, you look great! I know you feel great! Keep with the compression, it helps the skin adhere in the right places! Fantastic!

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
