I am having thigh and arm lifts out of state. Would it be reasonable to fly back home after 2 weeks or should I plan longer?

Healing two weeks after surgery
Thigh and arm lifts out of state - how long before flying home?
- Assuming you are having a medial (long scar) thigh lift, if you were my patient, I would want you to plan to stay two weeks - with the understanding that you might need to stay longer depending on how the thigh lift healed.
- I assume by out-of-state you mean you are having surgery in the USA by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and will have some kind of caretaker with you for at least five days.
- If you are having a medial thigh lift out of the country, I think it is ill-advised -
- Please arrange a plastic surgeon in Fort Myers to see you in follow-up, if needed, regardless of whether the surgery is in or out of the country.
Thigh and arm lift, are 2 weeks enough time to recover?
