If Dr. Cohn determines you are a candidate, he will create a personalized surgical plan based on your needs.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From a Thigh Lift?
Although many factors are involved in your recovery time, you will likely experience an initial post-surgical recovery period of a few days. You may also require a reduced-activity period of a few days. During thigh lift recovery, you will likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Exercise and normal activity can resume at Dr. Cohn’s direction.
Following all of Dr. Cohn’s post-operative instructions is crucial to the success of your surgery. Surgical incisions should not be subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during healing. Dr. Cohn will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions following your surgery, which medications to take, how to reduce the risk of infection, and when to make a follow-up appointment.
Where Are the Scars for a Thigh Lift?
Since thigh lift surgery requires incisions to be made, scarring is inevitable. However, Dr. Cohn will work to place these incisions in inconspicuous areas. Thigh lift scars will likely fade over time.
Is a Thigh Lift Painful?
Since your procedure is performed using anesthesia, discomfort is minimal. However, you may experience pain and discomfort for the first few weeks of your recovery. Pain medication can be taken as needed.
