About Thigh Lift Surgery
Sometimes, the number of squats you do is just not enough to achieve the thigh shape and definition that you want. Eliminating loose skin can especially be challenging if you have just lost a lot of weight. If you desire slimmer thighs, then thighplasty can bring great improvement. Plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis will sit down with you at Orange County Plastic Surgery to conduct a thorough examination. Once your exam is complete and your cosmetic goals are understood, a treatment plan will be created. The results of a thigh lift will leave you with tighter and stronger looking thighs. Trim down that extra skin by receiving a thigh lift at our Newport Beach or Dublin, CA practice.
The ideal candidates for inner and outer surgical skin tightening of the thigh are:
- Men and women who have stretch marks and loose skin on their inner and/or outer thigh
- Men and women who have had weight loss surgery and have maintained their goal weight for at least a year and desire removal of the excess skin and remaining fat deposits
- Men and women who are in overall good health and who do not smoke

"Was so pleased to see you all settling into your new space - Was so pleased to see you all settling into your new space. It's like seeing old friends when I am there. Dr. Bunkis has spent three consults with me now and never once has acted anything but gracious and patient with all my questions. Glad to see Colette has a private office space allowing more privacy when you speak with her. Miss having you all in my "backyard" but would drive much further to see Dr.B!"- C.C. / SmileReminder / Jun 14, 2014
"Finally, it's my turn! - When I look in the mirror today, I see the girl that I feel in my heart. Dr. Bunkis and his entire team made me feel that they were personally interested with my surgery and recovery. I felt very secure. The Orange County Plastic Surgery team made sure that I was completely prepared going in on the day of surgery. The entire office from the front desk staff to Dr. Bunkis himself, and everyone in between made this very important decision for me very easy. Everyone was attentive to my needs, making sure I was comfortable with what was being done, flexible to speak and explain anything I needed, even if it was for the hundredth time. I would highly recommend Dr. Bunkis and his team at Orange County Plastic Surgery for any procedure."- R.W. / SmileReminder / Nov 18, 2016

What to Expect
Thigh lift surgery is performed quite often by plastic surgeons, especially now with so many successful weight loss surgery patients. This surgery is performed in an outpatient setting. The incision for the thigh lift varies from patient to patient, depending on what type of thigh lift is being performed (medial, lateral, etc.), as well as the amount, location, and severity of the loose skin being removed. This cosmetic procedure is performed with the patient under deep sedation and a local anesthetic or a light general and usually takes a few hours in the operating room. As discussed in the consultation, patients can expect there to be swelling, bruising, and some discomfort after surgery, all of which can be managed accordingly.
After the thigh lift, you can expect to see smoother skin with less dimpling or visible cellulite. As each patient’s surgery is different, it is hard to estimate how long the recovery may be. It is recommended to follow all of the aftercare instructions and scar treatments as prescribed by the surgeon. All patients should wait to resume strenuous physical activity until released from the surgeon at the follow-up appointments.
