Massive swelling following medial thigh lift??
Doctor Answers (1)
What is 'massive'?
swelling after surgery is normal and it can take a few weeks for most of it to go away, months to be completely resolved.
If you really have 'massive' swelling, you may have serous fluid (seroma) that needs drainage. It's best to be seen by the surgeon who performed your surgery.
