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 »

Wrinkles Aren’t Just Wrinkles

If you have been considering a wrinkle-reducing injectable treatment in Los Angeles such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, you may have heard that BOTOX is often used to treat “dynamic” wrinkles. What does this term mean? Well, there are many types of wrinkles, and each should be approached differently with regard to proper treatment. Three of the most common types of wrinkles are dynamic, static, and wrinkle folds. Dynamic Wrinkles   Definition: Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by repeated facial movements, such as smiling, squinting, or frowning. These often appear during muscle contraction as creases on the forehead, “crow’s feet” around the eyes, … Continue reading »

Couple Satisfied After Post Weight Loss Surgery with 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 »

All About Breast Asymmetry

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

Dr. Stoker is a phenomenal doctor.  My wife had a breast augmentation and we are both blown away with the results.  Personally, I felt his demeanor or “bed side manner” were superb.  My wife’s recovery was exactly as he expected it to be. 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 »

Liposuction and Local Anesthesia: Is it Safe?

Many of my Los Angeles liposuction patients are interested in using local anesthesia for their procedures, but they are worried about the risks. The truth is that all plastic surgery procedures carry some risks, and the same is true when choosing anesthesia. Your surgeon should be able to recommend the most appropriate type of sedation based on personal preferences, the procedure, and the size of the treatment area.   For liposuction procedures, I offer the following options:   Local Anesthesia   Local anesthesia can be used with or without oral sedation. This option is often chosen by men and women who … Continue reading »
