5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

19 Year Old Male Gynecomastia Surgery. Newport Beach, CA

I have had gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, since I was around 4-5 years old. (See first picture) This year, being my first in college, I finally decided to fix this very frustrating issue, which was seemingly progressing for the worst throughout the years. (See second picture) After countless attempts at fixing or at least concealing my gynecomastia through various medications,...

A 70-year Old Female Who Was Getting Depressed when Looking in the Mirror! - Irvine, CA

From the moment I entered Dr. Sundine's office, I was totally at ease. The friendliness of the staff, the surroundings and most of all, the instant rapport I experienced with Dr. Sundine alleviated any concerns I had about undertaking a facelift procedure. My husband attended the appointment with me and he had the very same impressions. Dr. Sundine's easy but totally professional manner convinced us that we had found the perfect doctor to perform my procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Well Worth It - Costa Mesa, CA

I had a visibly collapsed rt nostril & wasn't able to breathe. I've had multiple facial reconstructive operations for a birth defect. I consulted with a number of surgeons and many said that nothing could be done about this- after meeting w/Dr Sundine I felt comfortable&confident he could help. He answered all of my questions patiently and explained the procedure and process. Post op care has been a positive experience with no wait time and the office staff's responsiveness being timely and considerate. Toni has been kind and compassionate thru the entire process. Dr Sundine surpassed my expectations - the results are amazing! It takes courage to commit to any life changing action and with Dr Sundine's knowledge, skill, and compassion I feel I was in the best hands.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Great Doctor and Great Results! - Costa Mesa, CA

He was recommended to me by a family member in the medical profession locally. When you first meet Dr. Sundine, you feel very comfortable, he puts you at ease. He was highly recommended by a member of the local medical community, which is important to me since I previously had a very bad experience. Dr. Sundine is a great surgeon, and the results were remarkable, more than I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone seeking plastic surgery, he is an artist.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Phenomenal! - Orange County, CA

Making a decision to alter your appearance is a difficult one, even when it is something you have wanted to do for a long time. Finding the right surgeon, and environment makes it that much easier. The very first time you walk into the office there is an immediate feeling of ease that comes over you. Toni, her easygoing, yet informative nature, the fact that there is never a wait, or really anyone else in the office to make you feel uncomfortable is wonderful. There is no "factory" feeling in Dr. Sundine's office, and I am sure that many of you in Orange County understand that description. Dr. Sundine is wonderful, an ethical, brilliant doctor who takes the time to understand his patients needs and wants and ease their fears. The phone calls I made in my effort to come to a decision about implant size, the emails, the visits and questions were only addressed with the utmost of patience, care and attention. The end result is a beautiful, natural looking breast augmentation and a longstanding relationship with a phenomenal surgeon. Thank you Dr. Sundine and staff for offering your personal best every time.

The Best Decision! - Newport Beach, CA

I was nervous before the surgery and he totally put me at ease, he answered every crazy question I had and was so kind about it. He spent a great deal of time with me, I haven't ever waited in the waiting room more than five minutes but any time I needed to see him after the surgery he was there. He even met me at the office on a Saturday to look at something I was worried about, which ended up being nothing. I love this office!!! Dr. Michael Sundine made me feel totally at ease and actually listened when I explained what I wanted. His office staff made sure I was completelly prepared so there wasn't anything I wish I knew beforehand and there haven't been ANY down sides to it. I'm so thankful to Dr. Sundine and his office staff for every detail of my experience and how they have changed things for me. (Costa Mesa, CA)
