Surgeon: Dr. David Stoker
This 39-year-old woman hoped to find a surgeon to help her diminish the fatty bulges on her hips and stomach and to diminish her abdominal appendectomy scar. After looking for a Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon, she made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
During her consultation, she and her surgeon decided that power-assisted liposuction as well as a scar revision would achieve the results she wanted. For scar revisions, a plastic surgeon can use a number of techniques in order to diminish the scar's appearance depending on the scar. There are topical treatments such as creams and gels, injectable treatments which can help fill-in concave scars, and surface treatments such as dermabrasion, laser therapy and chemical peels. Surgical treatments that involve skin grafting or other methods are also possible. With her surgeon's help, this patient also decided to have a breast lift and augmentation to rejuvenate her figure even more.
In the "after" photos, the patient's stomach appears much flatter and her hips are narrower and more even. Her scar is no longer concave and although it's still noticeable, it blends in more than it did before. She was very pleased with the results of her breast lift and augmentation, her scar revision and with her liposuction in Los Angeles.
