Very happy for you. My best advice for thigh lift is be prepared for discomfort. Out of all I have done, it was IMO, the most painful.

Having said that, I think it made a huge difference in my appearance, and I have no regrets. But, I had sort of a superwomen mentality going in since I was so fit thinking I would bounce right back. Boy, was I wrong.

So, in order to prepare make sure to:

1. Get enough time off from work
2. Have help at your house (more if you have kids)
3. Get all your meds in order before surgery
4. Get something to help you with the bathroom (whether you buy something or roll up a towel on the back of the toilet seat - that's what I did)

I did get back to my old-self, it just took a little longer than I had hoped. I think being prepared for a challenging recovery will help prepare you better. That way you won't get down or frustrated (as I did) the first few weeks. :)
