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.
This 36-year-old woman was unhappy with her body shape and wanted to look fitter and younger. Wanting to find a surgeon in Los Angeles who does liposuction, this patient came to Dr. Stoker's Practice to meet with a talented surgeon in order to discuss her options.
During her consultation, she and her surgeon decided that power-assisted liposuction could help her to look younger and healthier. Power-assisted liposuction is a specific type of liposuction where an electric motor oscillates the cannula, or the tool used to remove fat, so that the fat can be removed faster and the surgeon can target areas more precisely.
By using power-assisted liposuction alone, her surgeon was able to shed the excess weight on her flanks thighs and stomach, giving her a smoother and more even looking frame. Although this patient isn't a size two, the "after" photos show a dramatic decrease in the amount of fat on her body. As a result, her new figure appears years younger than it did in the "before" photos, giving her a fresher and healthier appearance. She was very happy with the results of her Los Angeles plastic surgery and glad that she had chosen Dr. Stoker's Practice to complete the procedure.
This 57-year-old woman was frustrated with the look of her body when trying to fit into certain clothes. She decided that she wanted to feel better about herself and began looking for a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who could advise her about the different procedures that would help her to feel more confident in the clothes she wanted to wear. Finally, she scheduled a consultation with one of the knowledgeable surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice to discuss her options.
During her consultation, her surgeon suggested that they perform power-assisted liposuction in order to slim down her flanks, hips and stomach and give her a more ideal figure, allowing her to fit more easily into her clothes. By using an electric motor, power-assisted liposuction allows for the more precise and faster removal of fat. By using this tool, her surgeon was able to dramatically thin her figure.
In the "after" photos, the patient's body appears smoother and more even now that the excess fat on her flanks and stomach has been removed. After her liposuction surgery in Los Angeles, she was very pleased that she looked better and fit into clothing better.
This 38-year-old woman was bothered by the fatty bulges on her stomach and hips that were worsened by the abdominal scar from previous surgery. She wanted to find a doctor who could perform liposuction surgery in Los Angeles, to help smooth her body so she could feel more confident in the way she looked. She decided to make an appointment with one of the highly experienced surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
With her surgeon, she decided to undergo power-assisted liposuction. When liposuction is power assisted, an electric motor causes the liposuction tool to move in specific patterns designed to improve the procedure's efficiency. Without an additional procedure like an abdominoplasty, this patient's surgeon was able to achieve substantial improvement with liposuction alone.
In the "after" photos, the fatty bulges that once haunted her hips, stomach and flanks are strongly diminished, leaving this patient with a leaner and healthier look. Since the surgery, she has been very pleased with the evenness of her stomach and hips and is very content with her Los Angeles plastic surgery.
This 23-year-old woman was uncomfortable with her shape and the fatty rolls that appeared beneath support straps. She wanted to find a talented surgeon in Los Angeles for liposuction, in order to create a more hourglass and feminine figure. She came to Dr. Stoker's Practice looking for help to fix her trouble spots.
During her consultation, she and her surgeon decided that she should have power-assisted liposuction to thin her hips, thighs and abdomen and give her the figure she desired. The difference between power-assisted liposuction, or PAL, and general liposuction is that in PAL, an electric motor directs and amplifies the motion of the liposuction cannula, the tool used to remove fatty deposits, to achieve more efficient results during the surgery. By using this method, her surgeon was able to successfully diminish the rolls around support straps and smooth her abdomen.
In the "after" photos, the rolls around her lower ribcage are completely gone and her hips seem to slope outward more femininely, giving her a more hourglass figure like she desired. Overall, she was very pleased with the results of her plastic surgery in Los Angeles.
This 30-year-old woman wanted to have a more ideal figure by trimming down her thighs and hips. She looked for a Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could help her with these troublesome areas. She made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice to find out more about liposuction.
After consulting with her doctor, this patient decided to undergo power-assisted liposuction in the areas with which she was most uncomfortable. During power-assisted liposuction, an electric motor moves the liposuction cannula (the tool used to remove fatty deposits) in specific patterns in order to increase the cannula's efficiency. Many surgeons find that power-assisted liposuction makes the procedure easier to complete.
For this patient, her surgeon was able to successfully slim down her thighs, hips and butt to create a thinner, more streamlined look. In the "after" photos, the patient's thighs are much thinner and her hips and butt appear smoother and straighter without the extra budges on her thighs. After the surgery, this patient was very happy with the results and glad that she had come to Dr. Stoker's Practice in Los Angeles for liposuction.
This 36-year-old woman was unsatisfied with the shape of her body and wanted to have a more feminine, hourglass figure. Liposuction seemed like a good option and so she wanted to find a talented doctor to perform her plastic surgery in Los Angeles. She made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice in order to find out what her options were to get the body she wanted.
Together with the suggestion of her surgeon, she decided to undergo power-assisted liposuction, which would remove the fatty deposits on her hips and stomach without diminishing the size of her breasts, which diet and exercise can do, so she could truly have an hourglass figure.
After her procedure, this woman's body was noticeably thinner and looked more youthful. She is no longer carrying around the excess weight on her thighs, hips and stomach. Instead, her stomach appears flatter and her thighs look healthy and slim. However, she still has curves which she is happy about. She feels it was a good decision to have liposuction in Los Angeles.
This 27-year-old woman and her roommate both wanted to improve their figures in order to feel more confident in general and when wearing their swimsuits. They both came to Dr. Stoker's Practice to have liposuction. In Los Angeles, the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice see many patients who want to feel more comfortable in their swimsuits. Liposuction is one of the common ways these surgeons help their patients achieve the results they desire.
This woman and her roommate underwent power-assisted liposuction to help slim them down for bikini season. In this technique, an electric motor helps the surgeon remove fatty deposits more easily, sometimes allowing the surgery to be completed in far less time.
In the "after" photos, this woman appears to have dropped a few pant sizes after her procedure. Her body is thinner and smoother without having undergone a more drastic surgery like a tummy tuck. As a result of her Los Angeles plastic surgery, she felt more comfortable in a bathing suit following the surgery, as illustrated here in the post-operative picture where bikini tan lines are clearly visible.
This 23-year-old woman from Europe wanted to refine her figure, but since she is a model, she was worried that her face and neck would appear undesirably too thin if she were to lose more weight through diet and exercise. She came to Dr. Stoker's Practice to find a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who could help her achieve the look she wanted without compromising the look of her face and neck.
The solution was power-assisted liposuction, where an electric motor helps the fat-removal process by moving in specific patterns which facilitate the fatty deposits' release more easily. With this, her surgeon was able to achieve the results she desired by trimming down her waistline and legs to her desired size.
As the "before" and "after" photos show, the change was not very dramatic, but she is slimmer than before. For her, this is exactly what she wanted and she was very happy with the results of her liposuction surgery in Los Angeles.
This 27-year-old woman already had a nice figure, but she was bothered by small fatty bulges that were obvious in certain clothing. Losing weight didn't make sense for this patient because she was comfortable at her current weight and felt that if she lost more weight through diet that her face and neck would look too lean. Instead, she began looking for a Los Angeles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could help her remove those fatty bulges easily.
At Dr. Stoker's Practice, she underwent power-assisted liposuction surgery in Los Angeles to sculpt a more ideal figure. With power-assisted liposuction, the added assistance of an electric motor helps the surgeon more easily remove fatty deposits sometimes making the procedure more time-efficient. For this patient, the excess fat on her hips and legs was removed, leaving her body looking more streamlined and even. She also did not have to lose weight to achieve her results, which meant she could keep the shape of other areas of her body. After the procedure, she said she felt much more confident in her favorite bathing suit (pictured here) following the precise liposuction.
