Medial Thigh LIft - Tijuana, MX

This procedure is going to be done along with my Lower Body Lift that I am having done next week! I don't have much to say about it at this point other than it is greatly needed. Not looking forward to a long scar on the inner thighs, but my arms have healed so nicely they are not really noticeable so I am hoping the thighs will be the same. I have never been able to show my legs in public my entire adult life, so either way anything will be a improvement. Even though I have lost 100 lbs and have gone from a size 18 pants to a 10 currently, I still look the same in my pants. What I mean is they may be a smaller size but they still look like they are squeezed in to them. All that extra skin does not look good even hidden in pants. My knees still look fat. Hard to describe but I look like a gel has filled out every ounce of my jeans...

I leave in 4 days!!!

Pretty much all packed, still need to buy a few more items on my list from the Doctor and all the items I copied form everyone here. Today I was thinking maybe I should not do the thighs that it's so much to do at once, but if not now then never, since this will be my last big surgery. Still planning on a brow lift and maybe a eye lift, since the rest of the face and neck have all ready been done. I so wish I would have already done those with the face lift, but was afraid of doing too much at one time and this time the PS said doing those also would be too much so I have to wait...Hubby is pretty much over me having all this done. So much time in the planning and then SOOOO much time in the healing it really cuts into life. I'm not sure how those movie stars are able to get so much work done and still have time to make the movies....lol Anyway I will take pictures of the after, here are some before's

Made it to the other side...

I am feeling great, no pain what so ever. My surgeon told me I would not feel any pain, but I really didn't believe it, as I have had plastic surgery before and know what kind of pain you can be in after. Well I was wrong, there truly has been no pain, I was a little slow moving at first but each day it gets better, I'm feeling pretty good today. Haven't seen my results as of yet as I currently look like a mummy but will be having that cut off and placed into my garment today I believe.

Two part procedure

I had a medial thigh lift in the front part of my thigh. At a later date I will have a lift of the rear thigh into the lower butt portion that will lift the thigh from the back and also help build the lower area of the buttocks. My rear was my biggest problem, literally Lol I always have had a very wide flat ass, no matter what my weight was....So when I learned this would need to be done in two procedures, I was not surprised. Not sure at this point when the second part will happen....

Healing Nicely

Drain removal, thank God and, incisions all closed with the exception of a area that was being bothered by the support garment, so I have changed garments and put some steri strips on it and I am sure it will be closed soon too. Scars look like a pen line, sure hope they stay that small. Feeling so much better without those drains...

4 weeks post op.

I do have to say the medial thigh lift is the slowest part of the healing process, since the area is a area that doesn't get much light of day. Hope you can see the thigh lift in this photo I will post a better one soon. The stomach area is more swollen than the rest, but the inner thigh incisions are very thin and should finish healing very well...

Nice faint line...

Here are a couple pictures of my inner thigh scar at three months...Looks nice and thin, and light in color...
