Major numbness in thighs after body lift/TT? (Photos)

If the numbness is improving, then there is a good chance it will improve further. Many times this is related to swelling. Good luck.
Numbness after body lift
Hello and thank you for your question . Actually numbness is a frequent finding in the hips and thighs after a lower body lift . If the nerve is trapped it usually causes pain.
2 things will happen over the next 6 to 12 months.
1. Numbness will improve .
2. The brain will accept the numbness as normal.
In other words over time the uncomfortable non sensation/sensation will improve until you feel that it is normal.
By the way , your early results look excellent .
