About Thigh Lift Surgery in Monterey

Excess, sagging skin on the inner or outer thighs are a source of discomfort and embarrassment for many patients. Sometimes this is due to aging, where a loss of skin elasticity can cause the skin to droop and fold on the upper legs. For others, overstretched skin and connective tissue can remain following significant weight loss. In either case, excess, sagging tissue on the thighs can make it difficult to find clothing that fits well, preventing a person from fully enjoying an active life.

For these patients, thigh lift surgery can remove the excess tissue, lifting and tightening the inner or outer thighs.

Desired Results of Thigh Lift Plastic Surgery

Thigh lift cosmetic surgery with Montery plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Sunde will reshape the thighs, reduce excess skin and other tissues, and even provide smoother skin. As a result of the surgery, the thighs will be more proportionate to the rest of the body—as well as firmer. They’ll also look more youthful, enhancing self-confidence.

Individual Goals

During the personal consultation, each patient discusses thigh lift cosmetic surgery goals with Dr. Sunde. Together with the doctor, the patient will decide the best procedural approach to achieve the desired results. Once a date for surgery is set, the patient will be given instructions about how to prepare.

Thigh Lift Procedure Details

Dr. Sunde will perform the thigh lift cosmetic surgery procedure while the patient is under general anesthesia, which is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist to ensure the highest level of safety.

Although some procedures may allow for very inconspicuous incisions, others may have noticeable scarring, but most scars will improve and fade over time. If the specific case allows, he will perform a minimal incision medial thigh lift, which only requires an incision in the groin area. When more extensive lifting is required, Dr. Sunde may make an incision beginning at the groin and extending to the back of the thigh. To address outer thigh problems, Dr. Sunde may need to make an incision from the groin to the hip.

In all cases, Dr. Sunde will tighten and reshape the tissue as well as remove excess skin to deliver smoother, more proportionate thighs.
