This 25-year-old woman wanted to have a slimmer, fitter body. She had been unhappy with the look of her abdomen and had recently begun considering liposuction in Los Angeles. She decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Stoker.
When she met with her surgeon, she expressed her concerns and asked what her surgeon recommended. Her surgeon explained that he prefers power-assisted liposuction, or PAL, because it is faster and more efficient than traditional tumescent liposuction. During the procedure, her surgeon would use a vibrating liposuction cannula to dislodge unwanted fat and suction it out. With careful and even strokes, she would see spectacular results without her skin looking uneven or unnatural.
Eight months after her Los Angeles plastic surgeryher "after" photos were taken. As her photos show, her body looks slimmer and more streamlined; she has a very flat stomach and thinner thighs following her procedure. She was thrilled with the results of her liposuction and felt a great boost in confidence after surgery.
This 47-year-old man didn't like the look of his abdomen, where stubborn fatty deposits had accumulated over time. Wanting to have a fitter and more streamlined figure, he decided to research surgeons who performed liposuction in Los Angeles, finally making an appointment at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
During his consultation, his surgeon listened carefully to this patient's concerns as he examined his abdomen. His surgeon agreed that liposuction would effectively treat this patient's abdomen and suggested that he undergo power-assisted liposuction, a safe and efficient method of fat removal. By making small incisions and then using a small, vibrating cannula, or liposuction device, his surgeon would be able to suction away unwanted fat quickly in a way that promotes proper healing.
After the surgery was completed, this patient was instructed to wear a compression garment to maintain his newly-contoured figure. He returned to Dr. Stoker's Practice 4 months after surgery to evaluate his progress and to take his postoperative photos. As can be seen in these "after" photos, his abdomen and flanks are smoother and flatter than before. He was very happy with his new, fit appearance following his Los Angeles plastic surgery.
This 24-year-old woman was unhappy with the look of her thighs, hips, flanks and back. Wanting them to have a slimmer, smoother appearance, she decided to find a Los Angeles liposuction specialist to help her achieve the figure she wanted. After some consideration, she made an appointment with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
Liposuction can be performed using a number of methods, but her surgeon preferred the quick and efficient method of power-assisted liposuction, or PAL. This method can treat a variety of areas on the body that traditional liposuction cannot and produces excellent results. For this patient, her surgeon suggested that he use PAL to treat all her areas of concern, resulting in a generally slimmer and nicely contoured figure.
Her surgeon was able to successfully remove the fat on her back, hips, flanks and thighs to produce a more hourglass figure. Six months after surgery, she looks fitter and has a more streamlined figure, as can be seen in her "after" photos. She was very happy with the results of her Los Angeles cosmetic surgery.
This 33-year-old woman had liposuction done by another surgeon and was left with uneven thighs afterwards. The surgeon had taken out too much fat from her lateral thighs, giving her an unnatural and asymmetrical appearance. Disappointed with the results of her previous surgery, this patient decided to look for a Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could help correct the look of her thighs. She made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice to find the help she wanted.
Her surgeon examined her thighs and concluded that power-assisted liposuction could dramatically improve her figure. Power-assisted liposuction is one method of liposuction where an electric motor assists the surgeon in moving the suction device, the cannula, to better remove fatty deposits. The added assistance makes the process easier for the surgeon and doesn't tire him or her as much as traditional liposuction.
By using this method, her surgeon was able to reinvent her figure, sculpting a streamlined and even body that looks younger and healthier. The "after" photos show this dramatic improvement two months after surgery. After having poor results from her previous liposuction surgery, this patient was thrilled with the results of her second surgery and glad that she had come to Dr. Stoker's Practice for Los Angeles liposuction surgery.
As a runway model, this young woman was concerned about the fatty deposits on her inner and outer thighs which disrupted the smoothness of her body's curves. Wanting to find a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who had lots of experience performing liposuction, she scheduled a consultation with one of the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When she met with one of our surgeons, she expressed her desire to trim down her thighs to a more desirable runway shape. Her surgeon recommended that she have power-assisted liposuction, a method of liposuction that is very effective at removing fatty deposits rapidly and efficiently.
Power-assisted liposuction, sometimes called PAL, is one method among many for liposuction. With PAL, a small electric motor vibrates the liposuction cannula, aiding the surgeon by amplifying the motion of the tool which helps to dislodge deposits faster, thereby making the removal process easier.
After her surgery, her body appears more streamlined. Her inner thighs have been slimmed and are no longer touching each other. Her outer thighs also follow a uniform curve downward, giving her a sexy and sleek appearance. She was absolutely thrilled with the results and she was able to resume work on the runway within ten days of her liposuction in Los Angeles.
Even though this young woman was very fit, she still wanted an improved figure. She came to Dr. Stoker's Practice to find plastic surgery in Los Angeles that was right for her.
During her consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, she told her surgeon that she was unhappy with the shape of her inner and outer thighs as well as the unevenness on her flanks and abdomen. Her surgeon recommended that she have power-assisted liposuction on the areas she was dissatisfied with, mainly her abdomen, flanks, hips and thighs.
With power-assisted liposuction, a small electric motor attached to the liposuction tool is able to remove fatty deposits rapidly and efficiently and it is sometimes better at reaching hard-to-treat areas than other methods of liposuction. By using this method, her surgeon was able to tackle multiple areas of concern for this patient, giving her the touch-up she wanted in all the areas she was concerned about.
The "after" photos were taken the day after her surgery, so the preoperative markings and slight bruising is clearly visible. However, a noticeable, immediate change in her shape can also be seen. The bruising will fade shortly after surgery, but the results of her liposuction surgery in Los Angeles will last for a long time, assuming she take proper care of her body and maintains her weight.
This slender woman was already at her ideal weight, but the shape of her thighs made it hard to fit into jeans. Tired of having trouble with her clothing, she decided to find a Los Angeles plastic surgery specialist who could sculpt her ideal figure.
During her consultation, this patient explained to her surgeon how she was bothered by her thighs and he recommended power-assisted liposuction to reshape them. Some surgeons find that power-assisted liposuction can be more efficient than other types of liposuction since the electric motor attached to the liposuction cannula (the tool used to remove fat) vibrates to dislodge fatty deposits more readily. By using this method, her surgeon was also able to slim her thighs to a more desirable shape.
In the "after" photos, her body appears much more uniform since her thighs make a tighter line along her body. She was extremely pleased with the results of her Los Angeles liposuction procedure and has a much easier time fitting into jeans.
