Surgeon: Dr. David Stoker
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.
