I had a medial thigh lift 3 weeks ago. It is still very uncomfortable to sit down

It feels like I am sitting on rope or rocks as my butt is still hard around the incisions. ALso when I bend my leg up the skin feels so tight and llimits range of motion. Is all this normal?

Again very normal. Did not your chosen surgeon outline the post operative issues in your pre operative evaluation? Call informed consent! Very important to fully understand the operation. (more)

I was beginning to get very depressed because I can not bend over to pick things up and do not have the range of motion in my legs any more... I was a dancer and a bit of a gymnast and am hoping that in time I can return to these activities. Will I have permenant limitations now.... so sad... I am crying
