This 42-year-old woman worked out vigorously to achieve the figure she wanted, but she could not fix the changes in her lower abdomen, upper thighs and breasts that occurred following her pregnancies. After some consideration, she decided to find out more about plastic surgery in Los Angeles and ultimately, she contacted Dr. David Stoker for a consultation.
Since she had multiple areas of concern after having children, she would be undergoing a combination of procedures which is frequently called a mommy makeover. There is no set combination of procedures for a mommy makeover, but typically it includes breast enhancement, a tummy tuck and often liposuction. For this patient, she would undergo a breast augmentation with gummy bear implants, a tummy tuck and power-assisted liposuction on her abdomen and thighs to sculpt her body back to its pre-pregnancy figure.
When her surgeries were completed, she was thrilled with the results. Finally, her breasts were full and large, her stomach was flat and her thighs were slimmer and more even. She was very grateful to Dr. Stoker for performing her breast augmentation and tummy tuck in Los Angeles with such great results.
This 45-year-old woman was frustrated with her inability to reclaim her hourglass figure after having multiple children and after doing some research about plastic surgery in Los Angeles, she decided to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker to discuss a mommy makeover.
When she came for her consultation, she explained her frustration to her surgeon and asked which procedures might work for her. After examining her body thoroughly, Dr. Stoker suggested that she undergo a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift, power-assisted liposuction and a tummy tuck in Los Angeles.
To give her back her hourglass figure, he would liposuction her hips, stomach and thighs to remove excess fat and he would remove excess skin from her stomach with the tummy tuck. To fill out her breasts, he would place gummy bear implants after performing a laser breast lift on her breasts. The combined effect would make her look slimmer and more youthful.
When her plastic surgery was completed, she was very happy with the results. Finally, she had her curvy, hourglass figure back, with fuller breasts and slimmer hips and thighs.
This 35-year-old woman was a former model, but despite doing her best to maintain a slim figure, she could not alter the deflated look of her breasts and the excess, saggy skin on her abdomen that appeared after having children. Wanting to improve her body's appearance, she decided to pursue plastic surgery in Los Angeles, hoping to find a talented and experienced surgeon who could perform a mommy makeover. After some consideration, she scheduled an appointment with Dr. David Stoker.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, she discussed her particular concerns as he examined her breasts and abdomen. As can be seen in the "before" photos, even after giving birth, this patient's abdomen still retained some of the roundness it had during pregnancy. And, since the skin on her abdomen had been irreversibly stretched after her pregnancies, Dr. Stoker thought she was an ideal patient for a tummy tuck. He also determined that since her breasts had lost some of their fullness as well, he would perform a breast augmentation to make them fuller and more youthful.
After her tummy tuck and breast augmentation in Los Angeles were completed, this patient was thrilled with her larger, rounder breasts and her new, flat stomach. Her surgeon had removed the excess skin and had tightened the muscles on her abdomen to make it smoother and thinner. She was very pleased with the look and feel of her breasts with the gummy bear implants and was very happy with the restored look of her abdomen.
This 46-year-old New Yorker knew she needed a skilled surgeon to help with her loose abdominal skin. After years of living with obesity, she decided she had had enough, and shed over 120 pounds through hard work, diet, and exercise. She kept the weight off, but unfortunately, her skin did not "snap back" afterward. She decided to fly from New York to California for a tummy tuck in Los Angeles because she knew that she was looking for much more than an ordinary "nip and tuck" and she wanted a surgeon who was a world leader in body contouring surgery.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, they reviewed her health history together and discussed her goals. Body contouring after massive weight loss involves different steps for each patient, but in almost every case the surgeon will need to remove a large patch of excess skin from the lower abdomen, and sometimes also tighten up the thighs, arms, and back. During her procedure Dr. Stoker removed a large portion of lower-abdominal skin that measured 2 1/2 feet vertically and extended from hip to hip.
This patient's Beverly Hills area plastic surgery results far exceeded her expectations, and she is extremely happy with her new shape. This patient is a great example of how smooth and firm the results can look in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Her new figure has opened up a whole world of opportunities for her, and she flew back to New York with a big smile on her face.
This 47-year-old mother found that her body had changed substantially since having children. She felt that her breasts appeared "empty" because they had lost much of their volume, and she was unhappy with how her abdominal area seemed to stay flabby even when she tried normal methods of diet and exercise to reshape her body the traditional way. To find out how plastic surgery after pregnancy could help her restore her pre-baby body she made an appointment with one of the surgeons at Plastic Surgery.
After an in-depth consultation with her surgeon, this patient decided to undergo a mommy makeover plastic surgery including breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. To restore the volume in her breasts her surgeon placed 400cc silicone gel implants through incisions around the areola, positioning the implants behind the upper pectoral muscle. To tighten her abdominal muscles and remove the unwanted fat in her abdominal region she also underwent a tummy tuck. Power-assisted liposuction removed fat from her flanks, hips, and inner and outer thighs smoothly and precisely.
This patient is very pleased with the results of her mommy makeover. Postoperatively her body looks more fit and toned, and her breasts have a full, natural-looking shape. The smoother curves of her hips complement her tummy and breasts nicely, and she is very pleased with her Los Angeles tummy tuck, breast augmentation and liposuction procedures.
