Thigh lift surgery will remove excess fat and skin that you may have, giving you the nicely sculpted thighs you have always desired. The thighs are one of the primary locations where fat and cellulite accumulate. Dieting and exercise may help you reverse some of this, but it will not eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and stretched skin.

Dr. Sundine is a respected body sculpting surgeon in Newport Beach who uses the most advanced surgical techniques to give you thighs that are tight, attractive and toned. He and his staff will address all of your aesthetic concerns and work with you closely to deliver the outcome you desire.

Who Is a Candidate for Thigh Lift Surgery?

Thigh lift surgery is a suitable body sculpting treatment for individuals who are unhappy with the shape and size of their thighs. It is usually performed on post-bariatric surgery patients who wish to eliminate excess skin left over after massive weight loss. Individuals considering thigh lift surgery must be in good general health and close to their ideal weight. Dr. Sundine will carefully review your candidacy for the procedure during a one-on-one consultation.

The Thigh Lift Procedure in Newport Beach

When performing thigh lift surgery, Dr. Sundine focuses on removing any excess fat and sagging skin. The thigh lift surgery technique and incision location that he chooses to use will depend on which part of the thigh needs to be reshaped.

  • Inner thigh lift involves incisions in the groin fold.
  • Vertical thigh lift involves an incision that starts at the groin crease and extends down to the knee.
  • Outer thigh lift requires an incision that starts at the groin and extends around the hip to correct sagging of the outer and mid-thigh.

During a thigh lift, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin and tissue are lifted and sutured in place. Thigh lift may be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat.

Thigh lift surgery is performed at an accredited outpatient surgical center under general anesthesia. In some cases, several thigh lift surgery techniques are combined for the best results. The length of surgery greatly depends on each your treatment plan, and on the complexity of the procedure.

Recovering from Thigh Lift Surgery

The good news with procedures like thigh lift and arm lift is that the results are visible right away. After thigh lift surgery, you will experience bruising, swelling and soreness for a few days. These are minimized with pain medication, bandages and proper at-home aftercare. The swelling generally subsides over a period of three to five weeks. Gauze is used to cover the incisions to keep them safe and dry. Full recovery is achieved within six weeks of surgery. During this period, Dr. Sundine will be at your disposal at all times to answer your questions and guide you through the healing process.

Dr. Sundine is an experienced Newport Beach plastic surgeon offering a range of body contouring procedures, including arm lift, thigh lift and tummy tuck. Over the years he has also earned a reputation as a top facial plastic surgeon, treating eyelid lift, nose surgery and facelift Newport Beach patients.

    • My experience with Dr. Sundine was AWESOME! He did such an amazing job on my nose. My nose had basically collapsed and Dr. Sundine made it look normal again. He helped me restore my self confidence. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Sundine explained everything in detail prior to surgery along with my follow up visits. I highly recommend him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
