After five days to one week from thighplasty operation, you may be able to work again. This means that you can already walk and move around very well, as tenderness rapidly resolves. In two to three weeks you may start with mild exercise routine, and in six to eight weeks post-surgery you may be able to return to full exercises. Barring any major complications, this is how a typical recovery timeline for thighplasty or thigh lift procedure sounds like.
Due to efficiency seen in plastic surgery procedures nowadays, it is advisable for patients to widen their knowledge and preparations to other aspects of their planned surgery, such as the specific techniques and incisions to be undertaken, surgical risks, and recovery period involved.
A thigh lift surgery is primarily intended to improve the thigh area by removing excess skin and fat and enhancing overall laxity of the affected thighs. But you should not focused solely on the intended benefits of thighplasty, rather you should be mindful indeed of the potential risks and recovery steps. You should have a good grasp on what to do with your diet, exercise, and lifestyle (especially if adjustments are necessary) as you go along the path to recovery. More importantly, you should be ready for all possibilities – physically and mentally.
