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 mother wanted to improve her curves, lift her buttocks, and tighten her skin. She decided to learn more about her options for plastic surgery in Los Angeles and scheduled an appointment with Dr. David Stoker.
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.
