Album Description

I will update as the swelling goes down. This is only after one week and I really can't tell how I will look. I continue to update. I am surprised how much bruising and swelling there is after 2 1/2 weeks. I had to have a large hematoma drained (over 2 cups of blood). I am still very sore and cannot walk with my legs together. When will this all heal and when will I look like I want????!!!! I still cannot exercise in any way per my docs orders.
I am 1 mo. post-op now. I was able to start exercising last week. I am still not seeing many results. I am very sore, swollen and lumpy. My PS says to be patient (which I am not) that it may take up to 3 mos. to see results. I am finding it hard to find a comfortable garmet to wear under my clothes to protect the scars from rubbing on the seams and to support them without being too hot. I am feeling much better after 6 weeks. Other than the area around where the hematoma was on the rt. side, my scars look very good. I am barely sore anymore and most of the lumpyness is gone. I think there is still some swelling and hopefully when i go back to the PS in 4 weeks it will be gone.

Hi Shelly, I am also thinking of getting a thigh lift but am concerned with the scars. You look very swollen in your one month post-op picture. It's been over two years since your surgery, I would be very interested to know how you are feeling about your results now. Are you going to post any more pictures ? Thanks, SL

Hi Shelly. I am wondering how you are doing? I would like to have this procedure performed but I'm afraid. I had a tummy tuck and lipo around my hips a year ago. I love the results but my thighs have practically doubled in size. I am afraid that if I have another procedure done my ankles or arms or something will also grow exponentially. I would love to hear about how you are doing. Take care. Gia
