THIGH LIFT INCISION ISSUES
No doubt this is the most common issue with thigh lift surgery due to the particular area of the surgery....heat, moisture, and bacteria. Most of these are treatable with dry dressings and one of multiple available antibiotic/anti yeast creams. At least weekly visits to your surgeon or nurse are important to prevent or identify worsening conditions.
Thigh lift wounds
Sorry for your problem. This is without question the most common complication after a thigh lift, and sometimes the drainage is severe. Not knowing the technique used, but this is the most common area to have wound breakdown especially at 2 weeks, and the drainage is common. Using maxi pads or super absorbent surgical pads can help for a while, and it will eventually stop. Obviously following up with your surgeon is paramount and he/she will help you get through this process.
