This 64-year-old woman desired an extreme makeover following a gastric bypass that resulted in a 100 pound weight loss. She wanted to remove much of the extra skin that remained.

She is shown before and four weeks after her second operation.
This 32-year-old woman lost approximately 150 pounds through diet and exercise. She underwent two stages of surgery by Dr. Stoker.

These photographs were taken before and three months following her surgery.
This 46-year-old mother wanted to improve her curves, lift her buttocks, and tighten her skin. She decided to learn more about her options for plastic surgery in Los Angeles and scheduled an appointment with Dr. David Stoker.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, he recommended a buttock lift and power-assisted liposuction. In addition to the body contouring performed during a buttock lift, power-assisted liposuction in Los Angeles has become a popular new method for permanently removing unwanted fatty bulges and creating more attractive body contours.
During power-assisted liposuction, the tip of the suction tube vibrates at a rapid speed. This vibration loosens the fat cells so that the surgeon can gently suction them away with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues. In addition to maximizing the effectiveness of the fat removal and helping patients to be more comfortable, it minimizes bruising. It has been particularly successful for many patients when combined with body contouring procedures such as the buttock lift that this woman chose.
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.
After losing a significant amount of weight, this woman wanted to reshape and tone her buttocks. To learn more about her options to improve that area, she contacted Dr. David Stoker for a consultation.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, she expressed her concerns. After listening to her carefully, her surgeon evaluated her body and recommended a posterior lift. That procedure would remove the excess skin on the buttocks. During the surgery, the physician would also tighten the skin to remove her wrinkles, leaving her with smoother, more toned buttocks.
Many individuals who have lost weight experience excess skin and sagging. Cosmetic surgery in Los Angeles after weight loss can alleviate those concerns and improve their self-esteem. After this patient's posterior lift, her buttocks appear more toned, with the excess skin resulting from her weight loss removed.
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.
