Recovery after a thigh lift

Allow all of your skin to settle and allow the swelling to resolve before making an assumptions about your results.  Be patient, as this may take 6-8 months and then you can discuss revisions with your plastic surgeon.

One week after thigh lift

It is difficult for me to comment without seeing your results, but at one week it is very early and I would give it some time to heal.
