This 64-year-old woman lost over 100 pounds following gastric bypass. She also exercises every day, but was unable to tighten her skin.

This 42-year-old woman lost over 100 pounds through diet and exercise. The loose skin on her abdomen was a constant reminder to her of her past struggles with weight.

This 42-year-old mother was unhappy with the way her abdomen looked after having children. The skin had remained stretched and she had retained a noticeable amount of weight around her waist and stomach. Wanting to regain the body she had before having children, she contacted our Los Angeles plastic surgerycenter for a consultation with Dr. David Stoker.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, he examined her abdomen and recommended that she have a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin on her stomach and to give her the figure she had wanted. By tightening her abdomen muscles, Dr. Stoker would restore the look of her stomach that had been altered by pregnancy. With the added touch of liposuction, her stomach and flanks would appear much flatter as well.
Five weeks after her tummy tuck in Los Angeles she returned to have her post-operative photos taken. Her abdomen is completely transformed; her stomach is flatter now that the excess skin and fat have been removed and her figure has a nice, hourglass contour. She was thrilled with the results of her surgery.
This 41-year-old mother had lost 60 pounds through diet and exercise, but was disappointed by the deflated appearance of her breasts and skin. She also had other areas that she wanted to rejuvenate to their pre-baby appearance.
At her consultation, Dr. Stoker discussed her options with her. His recommendations resulted in a tummy tuck, liposuction, and laser breast lift. Women often choose this combination of procedures for their mommy makeover. The Los Angeles tummy tuck, for example, can provide a toned, flat stomach, correcting areas such as sagging stomach skin that diet and exercise cannot always fully address. When combined with liposuction, it can be particularly effective. A laser breast lift is an innovative method of breast lift surgery that uses a laser to create an internal brassiere that lifts and shapes drooping breasts.
Eleven months following her tummy tuck, power-assisted liposuction, and laser breast lift in Los Angeles, she returned to have her "after" photos taken.

Reshaping patients' bodies after weight loss has become a specialization at our practice. Many individuals experience concerns such as sagging skin, fatty deposits that cannot be removed through diligent diets and exercise, and loss of volume in areas such as the breast.

When she met with Dr. Stoker, he recommended a buttock lift and power-assisted liposuction. In addition to the body contouring performed during a buttock lift, power-assisted liposuction in Los Angeles has become a popular new method for permanently removing unwanted fatty bulges and creating more attractive body contours.
During power-assisted liposuction, the tip of the suction tube vibrates at a rapid speed. This vibration loosens the fat cells so that the surgeon can gently suction them away with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues. In addition to maximizing the effectiveness of the fat removal and helping patients to be more comfortable, it minimizes bruising. It has been particularly successful for many patients when combined with body contouring procedures such as the buttock lift that this woman chose.

Two months after her Los Angeles liposuction, tummy tuck, buttocks lift, and thigh lift, she had her "after" photos taken at our office. Her photos show a much slimmer woman with a more balanced figure.
This 41-year-old woman was proud of her recent 100lb weight loss, but was displeased with the sagging in her breasts, abdomen, and buttocks. She knew that plastic surgery would provide the "finishing touches" on her new look so she reached out to Dr. David Stoker.
During the consultation, she met with Dr. Stoker and discussed her transformation. The effects of diet and exercise had provided her with a slimmer body, but the excess skin was causing her to feel insecure. She wanted to celebrate her weight loss and newfound confidence with flattering clothing but claimed that certain outfits didn't fit properly. Dr. Stoker congratulated her on her achievement and suggested a Los Angeles tummy tuck and buttocks lift to remove the extra skin and give her a tighter, more toned appearance. He also recommended a face lift to reduce the look of "jowls" and a Los Angeles breast lift to give her a more youthful figure.
The procedures were performed in two stages: the first included the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and buttocks lift, and the second involved the breast lift and face lift. She is pictured four weeks after her first operation and shows less rippling in the buttocks and a tighter, flatter abdomen. Her breasts are also perkier and have a more youthful contour. She is very pleased with her firmer body and knows that her scars will fade significantly over the course of the year.
