thigh lift March 23rd

thigh lift March 23rd

Postby freespiritha » Fri Jan 06, 2012 5:21 am

Hello to everyone who is considering thigh lift and already had one. I am having one on March 23rd. My insicion is going to be in the groin only. I am not hoping for miracle, just want looose skin lifted and tucked. I have lots of celulite on my thighs which I know will not all dissappear but I am alright with that. I will take lots of pictures and measurements before my surgery and post it here. For now I am still trying to loose last 10-15 pounds and exercising to tone. I do notice that when I exercise my cellulites become less noticable. I had lipo to my inner thighs and knees last March to help make them look better and it did. I already had saggy skin but I knew I would be coming back to have this done. I will also have some TT/MR revision with this surgery and mini arm lift (in the armpit).
So far I purchased GO GIRL to help me with peeing standing up. I will be having this done in Mexico with Dr cardenas, my doctor from last year. I will be recovering there for 3 weeks.

I will keep you posted and give you a link to my pictures in a few months. If you had that kind of surgery, I would appreciate any advice.

Hi Free! Congrats on your upcoming surgery. I'm considering a TL and I'm looking forward to your journey. The TL board isn't as active as the TT board. Maybe because people recover quickly and move on with their daily lives. I'm 3 mod post TT and it was a great experience and my results are phenomenal. I'm really looking forward to getting my thighs done in the next year or two. I want to hear all about it!!! Congrats again and good luck!

Very happy for your upcoming changes. I just had one thigh revised slightly yesterday, but am very happy with the changes now that it's all done.

I'll never have rock hard legs, but they look way better than they did. When I get down, I look at my before shots - it helps me keep my vision of what's realistic for me clear...

Good Luck!!! I am looking to have my TL with Dr. Campos this year as well. I had my TT last year with him and he did wonders with me. I cannot wait to get the TL done as I have always had saggy inner thighs and with age/time they have gotten worse.

Wishing you a safe and speedy recovery. Keep us posted.

Hi Free, thanks for posting the video explaining what you'll be having done. It's a big help to those of us that might be considering one of the procedures, especially the inner thigh lift. Don't seem to find much info on peoples personal experience with that. Only four more days to go! I'll be thinking of you and wishing you a smooth recovery.

My thigh lift went well. I have scar from front to back in the groin, I also had mr above thighs horizontally as muscle were separated and bulged. Going to the bathroom feels like stitches will separate, going for 2 is no joke. When I sit in a raised toilet, I still think my stitches will split. Dr. said that area has a chance of migrating so I have to wear compression as much as I can. That skin can be pulled back down by gravity.

Aaw, congrats for getting the lift done!! I hope your recovery goes well and fast now. I wish you all the best, sweetie!!

How is the walking now? How was that right after surgery? Could you walk at all? Did it hurt?

Getting in and out of bed is hard, isn't it?

Take care!!!

I walked fine and got in and out of bed fine as well, nice and slow. I am at a recovery house with adjustable beds. I walk fine as well, sitting down is what bothers my scars the most.
