If you are looking into getting a thigh lift, you’ll need to know what the recovery period is like so you know what to prepare for. While a thigh lift may seem like a procedure that would require a lengthy period of downtime, it only takes a few weeks to recover from.

After your thigh lift, the incision will be sutured closed and dressed. A compression garment will need to be worn to help provide support and reduce swelling. Medication can be provided to help minimize any pain. Walking the same day as your surgery is encouraged to help promote healing, but strenuous activities will need to be avoided for two to six weeks.
