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.
This 64-year-old woman lost over 100 pounds following gastric bypass. She also exercises every day, but was unable to tighten her skin. In two stages, Dr. Stoker performed a tummy tuck, buttocks lift, breast lift and liposuction. She is shown here before and four weeks after her second stage surgery.
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. Dr. Stoker performed an abdominoplasty and pubic lift to restore her figure. She is shown before and seven weeks following the surgery.
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.
