Thigh lift with a growing separation?
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. I would recommend seeing your surgeon for an in-person evaluation and discussion of wound care instructions. Whether due to a fluid collection, infection, swelling, or tension you have suffered a superficial separation of your incision that may worsen before it improves. Your surgeon should be maintaining a close eye on you to ensure that no other issue is taking place that may require additional treatment. Best wishes.
Hello and thank you for your question. I recommend seeing your surgeon as soon as possible if you have not already done so.
Best wishes and good luck.
