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.

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.

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 »
