Revisions after surgery

Since scars continue to mature over the course of a year, most plastic surgeons recommend waiting at least 6 months before doing a revision of a thigh lift.

I always advise pt's to wait at least 3 months minimum and preferably 6 months for optimum results. If a revision is obviously going to be needed then 3 months is often adequate.

Inner thigh lift revision

If you need a revision of an inner thigh lift I would not consider a revision for 3 months.  This give time for the scars to mature and for the tissue to soften.
