This 64-year-old woman desired an extreme makeover following a gastric bypass that resulted in a 100 pound weight loss. She wanted to remove much of the extra skin that remained. Dr. Stoker performed in two stages a tummy tuck, pubic lift, buttocks lift, laser breast lift and reduction, and power-assisted liposuction. She is shown before and four weeks after her second operation.
This 32-year-old woman lost approximately 150 pounds through diet and exercise. She underwent two stages of surgery by Dr. Stoker. First he performed a buttocks lift, thigh lift and tummy tuck with a circumferential incision around her waistline. He later performed a Laser Bra breast lift and arm lift. These photographs were taken before and three months following her surgery.
This 46-year-old New Yorker knew she needed a skilled surgeon to help with her loose abdominal skin. After years of living with obesity, she decided she had had enough, and shed over 120 pounds through hard work, diet, and exercise. She kept the weight off, but unfortunately, her skin did not "snap back" afterward. She decided to fly from New York to California for a tummy tuck in Los Angeles because she knew that she was looking for much more than an ordinary "nip and tuck" and she wanted a surgeon who was a world leader in body contouring surgery.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, they reviewed her health history together and discussed her goals. Body contouring after massive weight loss involves different steps for each patient, but in almost every case the surgeon will need to remove a large patch of excess skin from the lower abdomen, and sometimes also tighten up the thighs, arms, and back. During her procedure Dr. Stoker removed a large portion of lower-abdominal skin that measured 2 1/2 feet vertically and extended from hip to hip.
This patient's Beverly Hills area plastic surgery results far exceeded her expectations, and she is extremely happy with her new shape. This patient is a great example of how smooth and firm the results can look in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Her new figure has opened up a whole world of opportunities for her, and she flew back to New York with a big smile on her face.
