Inner Medial Thigh Lift - Scar Panic 3 months update

Ok so I decided to go and have my inner thigh lift...

Ok so I decided to go and have my inner thigh lift surgery after losing weight the gym just did not work and elastisity had gone.

I spent some time on searching the net for my consultant, i think its not the case of consultant, but I never found anything on the actual scars healing and what to expect on the results .

I am into my 7th day post op have taken the bandages of and am in a panic, I am a huge sufferer of keliod/hyper scaring, and really think there starting to go this way already. They are so thick,, I am already on stand by for silicone gel prescription, I asked to have thin nice lines inside my bikini crease as I model now and again,, I just feel butchered could this have been stiched any neater?? Can anybody help with experiences of there scars especially Medial thigh?? How it heals, what should the actual surgery result be like or am i just panicking for no reason and these will settle down to nothing

I am still awaiting come back from the surgeon, he...

I am still awaiting come back from the surgeon, he says he has never seen keloids/hyper in that area??
I have got to say I do feel quiet sick looking at them?? and im a strong surgery person.
I am now using high strength silicone gel and sheets religiously if theres anything else on the market please let me know....
P.s how quickly can I have a scar revision?? will it be under local??

So I'm now into my 3 months post op... And just...

So I'm now into my 3 months post op... And just thought I'd let you know how it's going with these scars !! I'm still treating them twice daily with silicone gel and wearing gel sheets 24-7 its time consuming but getting on with it ...ive also heard that lemon juice directly helps lighten so I'm giving that a go too. I've seen my surgeon who was quiet hesitant not to provide cortisone injections due to the fear of the scars opening up or keloid risk. He states that I can have I scar review in 1 yr.... This I'm not happy with as clearly these scars are not in the groin crease. He also explained the stitching is done in a special way due to common openings of the wound. I did find his in house manner and post op consultant quiet 'of hand'
I personally feel fobbed off and butchered. I personally spent time with him pre op saying please do nice scars and inside my bikini area. I now go to see him in June and will push for a review with no fees!! This should have been done correctly first time round. My advice to those thinking about this op is seriously please consider , this is no op for a young woman who likes the smaller side of bikini or underwear !! The results now the skin is getting softer in the inside thigh aint great either I haven't got the wow factor... In fact I wish is never had it done !!! I have put up some pics to you decide ....

Inner Medial Thigh Lift - 7 months post op

Ok as promised here are my 7 month results ....
I have uploaded my pictures and see for yourself if this surgery is worth it,,
I'm still using silicone scar gel daily, and wearing my lipo garment in the hope a miracle works,,and of course massage, I'm seeing my surgeon this week and do think I have will have a lot to say, my thigh lift as you will see is still rubbing together, the lipo very lumpy and my scars are not in my groin crease.....

Anybody had Endermologie treatment for lumpy lipo???

Can anybody advise me on this treatment,, I have lumpy lipo on the thighs and have been told by my surgeon to try this treatment over massage,, is it worth it or should I await a few more months to have a thin cannula lipo remove it??

Outcome post op 7 months - Do I get a second opinion ???

I've seen my surgeon and will need the lift redoing with scar revision,, I'm very depressed about this, and so wished I'd left myself alone first time round as I'm always in trousers and hide myself away totally the opposite from what I was expecting after surgery The healing time is such a long time to go through again,,, should I really get a second opinion or seek legal advice?? I'm just so confused

9 months lipo result

Here's my lipo result ... 9 months on,,, not for the faint hearted !!!!

Lumpy Liposuction Revision with Dr Vik Vijh - May 2014

Ok, so it's been a year now since I've been keeping you up to date on the results of my poor surgeries and after much deliberation and extensive research I decided to get a second opinion from one of the UK's leading reconstructive Surgeon Dr Vik Vijh.
Dr Vijh has a clinical professional manner to which you know your in good hands. He openly admitted that all results was in a bad way and even was concerned that I didn't hold enough fat to graft with but felt confident enough to give at least the lipo revision surgery a go, thank you god !!
I came across Dr Vik Vijh on one of his TV shows, to which he returned a lady in poor post lipo state, back to normality after 7 years of suffering. Her post lipo state was worse than mine he stated !!
I've suffered only 1 year, cried a lot, covered up and had a dying sexual relationship with my partner. 1 year is enough to destroy any healthy emotional state let alone 7 !!
Tomorrow is my revision surgery, and I'm one very nervous person right now. I know I've picked the best to this job,,
There are various links on google to see his lipo revision being carried out for the particular tv show, it's worth a watch for people just like me in this awful position.
And of course I will keep you updated on my results, but for now I will leave you with a picture of my current state.
Bye for now x

I have had previous surgery with the Dr and hes a great doctor, its not a case of my results as I know theres swelling there plus maximum lipo
