A medical condition can make it very difficult to lose weight, but sometimes plastic surgery can help. This 27-year-old woman has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) that made it very difficult for her to reshape her body even though she dieted and exercised faithfully. She knew that liposuction is not a weight loss method, but she hoped that her healthy habits would make her a good candidate for liposuction in Los Angeles to improve her shape.
Her board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker examined her medical history and discussed her options with her carefully. Even though liposuction is not designed for weight loss, it can still create impressive results for patients who are already healthy and close to their weight loss goals.
Dr. Stoker determined that this patient would be a great candidate for surgery and recommended power-assisted liposuction for her entire midsection, along with a tummy tuck to flatten out her abdomen. Both procedures can be performed at the same time, under general anesthesia, so that the patient can recover quickly and avoid the costs of separate procedures.
After completing her recovery, this patient is happy to show off her shapely new curves. She looks and feels much slimmer and more attractive, and says that her results exceeded even her own expectations. She is very pleased with the care and results she received from her Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon.
Tummy tucks can often remove stretch marks very effectively. This 36-year-old woman had had multiple pregnancies, and found that afterward she had a disproportionally large amount of excess weight, as well as obvious stretch marks, around her abdomen. She had trouble fitting into clothing and did not like the shape she saw in the mirror, so she decided to do something about it.
She chose to meet with Dr. David Stoker to talk about Los Angeles liposuction and tummy tuck to improve her shape. She was happy to learn from her doctor that a full tummy tuck can often remove all or most of the stretch marks related to pregnancy and weight loss, and she decided on a combination surgery that would pair the tummy tuck with power-assisted liposuction.
Her surgery went very well. Dr. Stoker successfully tightened her abdominal wall, removed excess fat, and trimmed away her excess skin. She healed nicely, and she is very excited to be able to show off her new, more attractive body contour. As her photos show, her tummy tuck gave her a smoother, sexier shape and reduced her stretch marks dramatically. Her procedure also reduced the tattoo at her hip, but this will be simple to correct and she is very pleased with the work of her Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon.
Diet and exercise helped this mom lose over 100 pounds, but she still needed extra help to take care of her loose abdominal skin. She was only 38, and felt that the loose skin left behind after her weight loss made her look and feel older. After research and careful consideration of her options, she decided to set a time to meet with Dr. Stoker to discuss tummy tuck in Los Angeles.
Dr. Stoker explained that it's very common for women and men to have plastic surgery after weight loss, and that a tummy tuck and liposuction could also help reverse some of the changes her body had undergone after pregnancy. He recommended an extensive tummy tuck to remove the extra skin and fat from her lower abdomen. Some women will need a bit of liposuction to refine their results, but her surgeon felt that this patient would get a very smooth, tight contour with a tummy tuck alone.
Afterward, the difference is obvious: she has a firmer, flatter body that shows off her curves and muscle tone much better. This patient was so happy with the results of her Beverly Hills area plastic surgery after weight loss, she even urged her sister to schedule a surgery with her doctor to remove an even larger amount of excess skin. Both procedures went beautifully, and both patients were extremely happy with their results.
This 42-year-old woman felt that diet and exercise were not working for her, and decided to look for a Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon who could give her advice on how to get a slimmer waist. She learned about board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker and decided to meet with him to better understand her options.
At her consultation, Dr. Stoker explained to her that plastic surgery is not a replacement for weight loss, but that she was still a great candidate for surgery. Like many women, this patient had large, uneven deposits of fat around her abdomen that made her look much heavier and less healthy than she really was. They talked over her options to give her a shape that would fit her healthy habits, and Dr. Stoker recommended an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with power-assisted liposuction (PAL).
Power-assisted liposuction in Los Angeles uses a vibrating liposuction wand to remove larger, thicker patches of fat such as the ones around this patient's abdomen. Since the vibrating wand removes fat very gently, it helps prevent bruising and allows patients to heal more quickly and comfortably.
After her tummy tuck and extensive liposuction, the patient was thrilled with her transformation. Her whole body looks slimmer, and from the side and rear views it is obvious that her new curves flatter her body beautifully.
