Inner thigh lift


52 posts in this topic

Yesterday was my last skin removal procedure… vertical inner thigh lift. I'm pretty swollen, but that's pretty standard after surgery. He removed 2.6lbs of skin & decided to do some lipo (that was an added bonus!) & removed 1600ml of fat. They put me in my compression garment while I was still in the OR, so I have no idea how I look! I get to shower tomorrow, so that'll be my first look at the new me.

Just some history:

5'4"

HW 292.6

SW (VSG) 268

GW 175

CW 148 (pre-thigh lift)

Fleur de lis TT/LBL 2/23/17

Breast lift (no implant) 4/18/17

Inner thigh lift 5/16/17

I'll probably get on the scale tomorrow, and I expect it'll be back in the 150s because of all of the swelling… but it'll come back down soon enough. Can't wait to see where I land!

Exciting - how long was surgery and was it outpatient? Do you have drains? Heal well

Surgery only took 4 hours, yes, it was outpatient, & no drains, which is a first! Took a shower but forgot to take pictures before I got back into compression garment. Even though I'm swollen & the incisions look pretty bad at this stage, I'm pretty pleased with the overall shape of my new legs! I definitely over did it yesterday (spent about 3 hours out with friends & not elevating my legs), and I'm paying for it today, so I'm trying to be extra good today & hopefully I'll feel up to going home tomorrow.

Where you staying? Impressed with your mobility. How long are the vertical insiscions? My PS has stated this recovery is the most in depth

I was staying with my parents, but I'm home now. The vertical incision runs from my groin to just below the knee. Keeping my legs elevated is wreaking havoc on my lower back, so I'm starting to spend more time upright & walking around. Transitioning from sitting to standing is the most uncomfortable right now.

Got on the scale for the first time & I'm up .2lbs, but my body fat is super low… so I know I'm not imagining the swelling! I'm supposed to go back to work on Monday, but I may work from home, depending on how much the swelling goes down between now and then. Super fortunate to have an understanding boss & the ability to be flexible with my work schedule! Considering I took almost no time off with the first 2 procedures, I don't even feel a little guilty about needing time for this one!
