Groin Crease Incision Infections
It's not unusual for patients to develop infections along their groin incisions following thigh lift surgery. This occurs for a variety of reasons including high bacterial colonization rates in the groin crease.
When infections occur in this area, treatments involve local wound care, antibiotics and careful attention to hygiene. When these steps are taken, the vast majority of infections resolve without difficulty. In the interim, it's important to maintain close contact with your plastic surgeon.
