Time for a Holiday Nip/Tuck?

The holiday season is well-known for being the time of year when Americans spend the most money shopping. But holiday spending sprees these days extend to more than electronics and clothing; as it turns out, this is also the time of year that they spend the most money on cosmetic surgery. There are two main contributing factors: the desire to look great at social gatherings and the extra time off for recovery. It’s natural to want to look your best, especially when you know you’re going to see relatives for the first time all year. Getting together with family can … Continue reading »

Recycle Unwanted Fat with a Brazilian Butt Lift

Many people desire to have a more shapely body with slimmed contours, but diet and exercise alone has not given them the results they want.

Depending on the patients needs, Dr. Stoker will harvest fat from target areas of the body such as the torso or thighs and then transfer that to the behind to create a smooth and sexy shape. According to Real Self, 93% … Continue reading »

Regain Your Figure with a Mommy Makeover

Women who go through pregnancy and childbirth will often see changes in their body that are attributable not only to the weight they gain but the stretching of skin over the expanding abdomen. Most women will gain anywhere between 25 and 50 pounds during pregnancy, some of which they will lose easily after the baby is born and some that will be more stubborn. Even the best exercise and weight loss routine will not have an effect on skin that sags due to loss of elasticity and the breakdown of the underlying structure that supports the skin and surrounding tissues. … Continue reading »

Why Liposuction is About More Than Just Looking Good (Clinical Studies Prove It!)

When people have difficulty losing weight despite dieting, exercise, and even medication, they will probably start thinking about having liposuction or a tummy tuck. Los Angeles plastic surgeons like myself stand ready to help these patients if they decide to pursue these surgical options. I often say to patients – both on my website (drstoker.com) and in person – that tummy tuck and liposuction are among my favorite procedures to perform. Why? Because the results are so dramatic and immediate. There is no substitute for the look on a grateful patient’s face when they see themselves minus the undesirable pads of fat, bulging thighs, and drooping … Continue reading »

Have you been working hard to try and shed excess fat to achieve a flat and toned midsection, but seem to not be getting the results you desire?

Boost your confidence and achieve the flat toned midsection you want with tummy tuck surgery performed by Dr. Stoker. He is able to help both men and women increase their self-esteem level … Continue reading »

Why People Choose to get Plastic Surgery

There is a magnitude of reasons why people choose to undergo plastic surgery procedures. Ultimately, these reasons break down into two groups. Patients will choose to undergo plastic surgery to improve in the aesthetic appearance of their body, or they will opt for plastic surgery for reconstructive reasons. Aesthetic plastic surgery is performed for patients that are focused on fixing a particular part of their body that has made them feel self-conscious.  On the other hand, for patients seeking reconstructive plastic surgery, they are looking to correct areas of the body either damaged due to injury or a congenital birth … Continue reading »

5 star review: Best Healing Time and Little Scarring

I went to Dr. Stoker concerned about healing time and scars because my dermatologist had indicated that I do not scar well and tend to develop keloids. She had noticed this with some moles she had removed. Dr. Stoker’s expertise with mommy makeovers had me back to work in a week and I never had any dark or purple bruising. My scars look great and already fading after only 8 wks. I never had more than 12 cc of drainage and I truly think that it was due to his delicate touch with the lipo and the minimal tissue trauma … Continue reading »

What Body Lift Surgery Can Do For You!

Patients that choose to have body lift surgery are typically people that have a large volume of loose and sagging skin in multiple areas on their body. This excess skin is typically the result of a massive weightloss and the skin was unable to bounce back to its original orientation on the body. The main goal of body lift surgery is to bring the patient’s body back to a state of normalcy and create a shape that is much more desired. After losing a large amount of weight and years of aging, the skin becomes less elastic and causes the … Continue reading »
