Your Placement Options for Breast Implants

Breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States. Though there were over 300,000 breast augmentations performed nationwide just last year, no 2 procedures are exactly alike. When women seek breast implants at my Los Angeles plastic surgery center, I customize the procedure to fit the patient’s specific needs. Implant size, shape, material, and profile, along with incision placement, are just a few of the choices you must make before your procedure. Additionally, implant placement is something you will need to discuss with your surgeon. In this post, we will discuss the benefits of each placement option. … Continue reading »

Exercising After Breast Augmentation: What You Need to Know

A majority of the women I see for breast augmentation in my Los Angeles practice lead active lives. It’s simply part of our culture–Angelenos love to be outdoors and on the move.

Breast Enhancement & Body Image

Body image and self-esteem directly influence one another. Having a positive body image is an essential part of having a healthy self-esteem.

Breast enhancements for those who are dissatisfied with their current breast size or breast asymmetry can enhance appearance and boost self-confidence. Before one decides to have surgery, it is always best to meet with a surgeon with the knowledge and … Continue reading »

Typically breast augmentation is sought out by women that are unhappy with the current shape or size of their breasts. Having breast augmentation can help these women not only feel more beautiful, but can also help them with a boost in their self-confidence.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE – 5 Stars

I had a tummy tuck and breast reduction with laser bra lift two years ago and I am getting ready to go back for a neck lift. Dr. Stoker was warm and informative as well as skilled in his craft.

Fellow Physician Gives Dr. Stoker 5 Star Rating

I am completely thrilled about the outcome of my breast augmentation that Dr Stoker performed.
