Avoiding Pulling Incisions After Lower Body or Inner Thigh Lift
I'm researching about lower body lift including an inner thigh lift and I'm concerned about how the patient is supposed to avoid pulling on these areas during the recovery. I would think even going to the bathroom would be problematic even if the patient was otherwise lying in bed recovering.
Also, I live on the third floor, and stairs are not recommended, either! How are these situations managed without pulling the incisions? I'm concerned about ripping open the stitches.
