When to do your next surgery

In many cases, it is safe to follow one surgery with another within a week or so. In reality, it is usually best to think in terms of putting about six weeks in between surgeries to let yourself heal and get mentally prepared for the next procedure.

I generally advice patients to wait about 4-6 weeks before opting for another procedure.  You want to be almost fully healed before the next step.  Based on your photos, to get the best results, you will need both a full medial thigh lift and a lateral thigh lift (which can be addressed with the completion body lift (lateral thigh and buttock lift).   To develop a plan, please see a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience with weight loss contouring.  Best wishes,
