Wound Breakdown Following Thigh Lift Surgery
It's not unusual for patients to develop small areas of breakdown along their incisions following thigh lift surgery. These wounds are usually managed with local wound care and tend to heal nicely. It's important to maintain close contact with your surgeon to avoid secondary complications. When these steps are taken, most patients are ultimately happy with their result.
