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 »

New 5 Star Rating: “Dr. Stoker is Amazing!”

Dr. Stoker is amazing!  He is a wonderful doctor and has great bedside manner. He listens to you and never makes you feel like you are being rushed.  I am very happy with his work.  He was well recommended by a friend of mine who is also a doctor and interned with him.  She knew how he worked in the operation room and highly recommended him.  After talking to her and numerous doctors, I went and booked dr. Stoker.  The results are amazing.  His office staff is wonderful too.  They really prepare you for the surgery.  And because they prepare … Continue reading »


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. I am over the moon with my results and still cannot believe that for the first time in my life I have a flat belly and even sized breasts. I would not go to anyone else for any plastic surgery procedure. From Vitals

New 5 Star Review of Dr. Stoker

Simply put – Dr. Stoker and his office are the best. My wife had a major weight-loss 6 years ago, and had come to the point where the excess skin needed to be removed. Dr. Stoker sat with us for almost an hour the first time we met to go over all of the pros/cons and suggested procedures. Turns out, he suggested less work than she thought she needed! From the moment we walked in the door, his staff made us feel comfortable and welcome. As the person watching from the outside, they made me feel part of the process … Continue reading »

Fellow Physician Gives Dr. Stoker 5 Star Rating

I am completely thrilled about the outcome of my breast augmentation that Dr Stoker performed. After breastfeeding my two daughters, the size of my breasts were reduced and my hips were significantly larger.  Clothes did not fit me properly and I did not like what I saw in the mirror.  As a physician, wife, and mother, I spend my days caring for other people but rarely have the time to take care of myself.  I am so happy that I made the decision to get a breast augmentation.  As mothers, we need to feel self confident about ourselves ( in … Continue reading »

New 5 Star Review: “Dr. Stoker is a Talented Surgeon”

I had liposuction on my inner thighs done by Dr. Stoker several months ago.  I opted for local anesthesia instead of general and was able to drive myself home after the procedure.  There was some discomfort during the procedure, but there is no way to see what is happening.  If a little discomfort and awareness of the procedure is scary to you then general anesthesia is a better option.  I started walking 2-3 miles within 2 days after my procedure.  That really helped me to get great results during recovery.  I am so thrilled with the results today, I wonder … Continue reading »
