Delayed Healing of Thighlift

Thank you for your question and photos. You do have some delayed healing of a part of your incision. This is not an uncommon problem due to the location of the incisions. Local wound care should suffice in getting it to heal.  Your photos are close up and the lighting is off so a more definitive recommendation will require physical examination by your surgeon. Make an appointment to be examined and to get care instructions. Best wishes on your recovery.
