Lower body lift performed in October, and now I'm going in for inner thigh lift in December. Once again I don't know what to expect or what would help to have at home during to recovery. Any advice is appreciated.

Well all of my recent posts are about my thigh lift recovery. So that might be a useful place to start!

I hope to get the perspective of several people as each person's experience varies. TIA.

Like I said in one of my first post-op thigh posts, I had a really hard time finding detailed information about thigh recovery. Here's a post where I asked and the replies might be useful for you - http://www.obesityhelp.com/forums/plasticsurgery/6022460/Medial-Thigh-Lift-need-the-details-truth/

For me the thighs were the worst pain and recovery for my surgeries. That being said I was back to work after 10 days and off all pain meds but was walking gingerly for another week or so.

I can't imagine going back to work after 10 days! I'm 22 days post-op now and still feel totally useless. Color me impressed!

I would have loved to stay home longer but had no more vacation or sick time. Luckily for me work was very accommodating. They allowed me to park in the ramp close to the office & paid for it. Then at the office everyone went and did things for me so I had to move very little if possible. Not ideal but had no choice.

I had two thigh lifts. First a Spiral lift that went from back of thighs to front- hips . Second a medial lift- inner thighs. The spiral lift was very hard. Had complications that required a second surgery as my wound dehised. The inner thigh was not as bad. Get a high toilet seat. Rest is the best. I did not require compression garments for inner thigh. Just give yourself time to heal
