5 Star Rating from a Revision Rhinoplasty Patient

Dr. Stoker is a brilliant surgeon.   He fixed a botched rhinoplasty for me almost a year ago.   Dr. Stoker performed over 15 different procedures to open up my nasal passages which had threaded back together during the previous surgery 7 yrs. earlier.  I was able to fully breath through my nose for the first time in 7 years.  On top of that he made my nose look like a models by taking some cartiledge from behind my ear which he used to widen the top of my nose between my eyes and to make sure my nasal passages … Continue reading »

Another 5 Star Review from a Satisfied Liposuction Patient

Dr. Stoker is an amazing doctor who gave me the body that I tried to achieve with diet and exercise but unfortunately due to genetics could not get. Dr. Stoker did liposuction of my abdomen, flanks and hips and then I got a Brazilian but lift. I could not be happier with the results and the service that I received throughout the entire process. I had gone to 4 other doctors while searching for the best price and best doctor and Dr. Stoker was by far the best and most qualified to do the work. My body looks so natural … Continue reading »

New 5 Star Review: “I Love My Tummy”

First contact I had with Dr. Stoker’s office is when I brought a friend to her post surgical appointment. I met Tammy, Dr. Stoker’s nurse, she was amazing(love you Tammy).

He said that I was a good candidate not an excellent one but he could make a substantial difference in my appearance. What I liked about him is that he is a realist. He is confident … 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 »

Losers and Winners – Massive Weight Loss

One group of patients I particularly enjoy working with is the community of men and women who have lost large amounts of weight.  Whether these patients have conquered obesity on their own or undergone weight loss surgery, Los Angeles area residents who have fought to achieve their ideal weight are inspirational patients.   It’s particularly rewarding for me as a plastic surgeon to meet a weight loss patient in my consulting room.  They’ve done the hard work already, while I get the opportunity to put the finishing touches on their new physique.   This was the case when I met … Continue reading »

“I Cant Say Enough Good Things About Dr. Stoker and His Staff”

I am so incredibly happy with the results from my surgery with Dr. Stoker. It all started for me with a deviated septum that was causing me a lot of sinus infections and migraines. I went to Dr. Stoker on a recommendation from a trusted friend to see what could be done. In addition to having my deviated septum fixed, I also asked for some cosmetic work on my nose. I have wanted a new nose since I was a teenager, but was always nervous of how it might change the way I look. Dr. Stoker did exactly what I … Continue reading »

Clinical Research

The field of medicine advances largely through clinical research performed by doctors and scientists around the world.  Within an individual practice like mine, participating in research projects not only benefits my particular specialty, plastic surgery, it also brings opportunities to my patients.   I’ll give you a couple of examples.  Several years ago, as silicone breast implants were poised to be reapproved by the FDA, I was chosen by two manufacturers to conduct clinical trials of the next generation of silicone gel implants—those that came to be known as gummy bear breast implants.  I gained early expertise with these new … Continue reading »
