Is there a way to know if the swelling is completely gone? (photo)

I had a medial thigh lift in the beginning of september. how do you know when the swelling is completely gone. I go about my daily activities but my inner thighs are very sore and there is numbness when i touch. they still rub slightly when I walk. I'm hoping because of this there is still swelling present because if this is my optimal result, then I'm not happy...any advise please will help
