Thigh Lift Procedure

  2. Swelling, bruising & some discomfort is normal & to be expected – this resolves on its own
  3. Dr. Rudderman will see you 48 hours post surgery
  4. Swelling generally is mild and resolves in 1-2 weeks
  5. Sutures are removed in 7 to 10 days
  6. Most patients who have surgery on Thursday can return to desk work Monday
  7. Avoid strenuous activity for at least 3 weeks…Dr. Rudderman will tell you when you can start to exercise again
  8. Measurable results are typically visible in 2 weeks…but be patient…healing and stabilizing takes time. It can take months for the “new you” to be clearly seen.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
