Having one breast that is bigger than the other is a common reason why many women visit me to discuss breast augmentation in Los Angeles. Breast asymmetry may vary in form, position, or volume, and can occur for many reasons, such as hormonal changes or as a result of surgical complications or injury. Typically, however, I classify breast size irregularities into 1 of 2 categories: congenital breast asymmetry and post-surgical asymmetry.   Congenital Breast Asymmetry: Women with congenital breast asymmetry generally have pre-existing differences in their breasts, including uneven breast size, irregular areola size or position, dissimilar breast crease position, or … Continue reading »

Satisfied Husband of a Breast Augmentation Patient Gives 5 Stars to Dr. Stoker

However, the reason I wanted to yelp him was more for the spouses who may feel a little uncomfortable with these types of procedures.  I certainly did.  However, working with Dr. Stoker was so simple and relaxing that all / any reservations I had quickly diminished as our initial consolation. Bottom line, he is accomplished, kind, and … Continue reading »

Breast Surgery after Weight Loss

Although many people may not think of breast surgery as a post-weight-loss procedure, breast enhancement is often needed to restore volume and shape. I offer many Laser Breast surgery procedures, which are particularly helpful for women who want to address two common concerns after weight loss: decreased breast volume and breast sagging.   How can laser breast surgery help?   Laser breast surgery is beneficial because it both lifts the breasts and restores a fuller, more youthful shape. This procedure involves using excess breast skin (which is normally removed during a traditional breast lift) to create an “internal bra” that … Continue reading »
