After losing 135 pounds through gastric bypass surgery, this 40-year-old mother of two and nurse wanted to reshape her body through Los Angeles plastic surgery After meeting with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker, he recommended a buttocks lift, lateral thigh lift, tummy tuck, and power-assisted liposuction. During these procedures, he would remove the excess skin around her hips and thighs. By performing liposuction as well, she could appear more toned and shapelier.
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.
A contestant on the popular NBC show, the Biggest Loser, this 27-year-old man lost 220 pounds through diet and exercise. Many individuals who have lost substantial amounts of weight want to correct issues such as excess skin. For his body contouring, this man chose Dr. David Stoker for his post-weight loss surgery in Los Angeles. After evaluating the patient, Dr. Stoker recommended an upper body lift and abdominoplasty.
Dr. Stoker has become known for its success in helping patients who have lost weight regain their body's tone and shape before their weight gain and loss.

In other cases, combining procedures into one surgery minimizes downtime. Our practice's surgeons are experienced in customizing each treatment plan to the individual patient's health and surgery goals.
This woman had lost a substantial amount of weight and wanted to learn about body contouring options. She decided to investigate options for reshaping her body through cosmetic surgery in Los Angeles.
When she came in for her consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker. After evaluating her body, Dr. Stoker recommended a body lift, tummy tuck and posterior lift.
After her surgeries were completed, she experienced a full recovery before she returned three weeks later for her "after" photos. As shown in her photos, her body looks slimmer and toned.
This 46-year-old woman from Los Angeles felt that she would look much better without the excess skin on her buttocks, hips, and flanks. She wanted to find a surgeon she could trust to help her create a more appealing physique that diet and exercise alone could not help her achieve. After consulting with her surgeon at Dr. Stoker's Practice, she decided on a posterior lift and power-assisted Los Angeles liposuction procedure.
This woman's surgeon wanted to target all of her areas of concern, so he performed a posterior lift to tighten and tone her buttocks and flanks. Often, this type of procedure enhances other areas as well, as the body is lifted and smoothed. Her surgeon also administered power assisted liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat cells from her flanks and hips to sculpt softer, more defined contours of her waist and hips.
This woman is very happy with her new body after her Long Beach area plastic surgery procedures. Her photos are taken 15 months post-operatively, and show the dramatic improvements that have developed during her recovery process. While the surgical scar that circles her lower abdominal muscles is still slightly visible, it will continue to fade over time.
