Recovery period for thigh lift?

How long does it take for someone to recover from a thigh lift? I’m trying to figure out about how much time I should take off work for my procedure. Are there any questions I should make sure to ask my doctor at my consultation?

Thigh Lift Recovery

Hi. It usually takes you 5 weeks to recover from a thigh lift. Depending on the type of thigh lift you received, it is safe to take at least 2 weeks off work to recover at home. During this time, you will need to refrain from heavy lifting and exercise for at least 6-8 weeks after the procedure depending on how well your recovery is progressing.
