Thigh Lift

What are the potential risks and complications of thigh lift surgery? 
The risks and complications specifically associated with a thigh lift include temporary numbness around incision areas, restricted movement, fluid build-up, hypertrophic and keloids scars, swelling and bruising.
Greater complications that can occur in any surgical procedure include:
* Adverse reactions to anesthesia
* Hematoma or seroma (the build up of blood or fluid under the skin that may require removal)
* Infections or bleeding
* Allergic reactions
* Unsatisfactory results that ultimately may result in the need for further surgeries
* Asymmetry (unevenness) of the skin
How long does it take to get back to normal activities? 
Following your surgery, you will be required to stay overnight in hospital for observation, and may return to normal activities after 2-3 weeks. We recommend that patients take at least 2 weeks leave from work.
Will there be much scarring? 
As with any surgery, some scarring will occur. Your surgeon will endeavour to limit scar length and visibility, however it is important for patients to understand that scarring may still be visible and to discuss these outcomes with your surgeon before undergoing a body lift procedure.
