POST-SURGERY CARE AFTER THIGH LIFT PLASTIC SURGERY ABROAD IN PRAGUE:
One or two days after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery in Prague, the plastic surgeon removes drains used to drain off the rest of the blood liquids.
The patient leaves the cosmetic surgery clinic with compression clothes on the legs; the arms dressed by an elastic roller bandage.
Concerning the arms, this re-bandaging takes place in a similar way, except only every other day and instead of using compression clothes, the arms are dressed with an elastic roller bandage.
Two weeks after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the compressions, gauze and patches on both the arms and the thighs and it is possible to take a shower. It is possible that the patients remove the patches themselves in the event that they cannot come to the re-bandaging. The stitches are absorbent and they do not need to be removed.
In the case of hip liposuction being carried out as well, it is possible that tiny stitches remain on the skin, and it is recommended to remove these 14 days after the Thigh lift cosmetic surgery. Pressure massages of the scars should begin 18 days after the Upper arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery. A finger is used to exert pressure on the scar for 30 seconds and then the finger is moved to another place on the scar. This massage is carried out several times a day and it is also suitable to use scar creams. The patient maintains a state of rest for 14 days after the Upper Arm or Thigh lift cosmetic surgery.
