Q1 : Will I be conscious during the procedure?
A1 : You will be asleep under general anesthesia.
Q2 : How long do I need to stay in Bangkok?
A2 : You need to stay for 2 nights in the hospital, then come back for follow up after 7-10 days.
Q3 : How long will it take to recover?
A3 : Your thighs will be swollen and bruised after surgery but will look and feel near normal in about 3 weeks. Wound healing will continue until the scars mature over 6-12 months.
Q4 : Is the result permanent?
A4 : Significant fluctuations in weight will negate the results of surgery.
Q5 : Will I have visible scars?
A5 : Scar formation is one of the major concerns after the operation. These fade in time and can be kept hidden beneath swimsuits or underwear. People who have experienced forming keloids in the past should weigh the benefits of thighplasty against the chances of getting large scars.
Q6 : What could go wrong?
A6 : Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, nerve injury, keloid, and need for revision surgery.
Q7 : How do I prepare for surgery?
A7 : To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
