   At 3 days, swelling can be massive following thigh lift, and it can be asymmetric.  DVT can cause asymmetric swelling and pain in the affected leg, and this is always important to rule out.  If your surgeon performs these procedures all the time and has good results, you will probably have good results.  Your plastic surgeon will be a good source of information for you during this time.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
