This 42-year-old mother was unhappy with the way her abdomen looked after having children. The skin had remained stretched and she had retained a noticeable amount of weight around her waist and stomach. Wanting to regain the body she had before having children, she contacted our Los Angeles plastic surgerycenter for a consultation with Dr. David Stoker.
When she met with Dr. Stoker, he examined her abdomen and recommended that she have a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin on her stomach and to give her the figure she had wanted. By tightening her abdomen muscles, Dr. Stoker would restore the look of her stomach that had been altered by pregnancy. With the added touch of liposuction, her stomach and flanks would appear much flatter as well.
Five weeks after her tummy tuck in Los Angeles she returned to have her post-operative photos taken. Her abdomen is completely transformed; her stomach is flatter now that the excess skin and fat have been removed and her figure has a nice, hourglass contour. She was thrilled with the results of her surgery.
This 41-year-old mother had lost 60 pounds through diet and exercise, but was disappointed by the deflated appearance of her breasts and skin. She also had other areas that she wanted to rejuvenate to their pre-baby appearance.
At her consultation, Dr. Stoker discussed her options with her. His recommendations resulted in a tummy tuck, liposuction, and laser breast lift. Women often choose this combination of procedures for their mommy makeover. The Los Angeles tummy tuck, for example, can provide a toned, flat stomach, correcting areas such as sagging stomach skin that diet and exercise cannot always fully address. When combined with liposuction, it can be particularly effective. A laser breast lift is an innovative method of breast lift surgery that uses a laser to create an internal brassiere that lifts and shapes drooping breasts.
Eleven months following her tummy tuck, power-assisted liposuction, and laser breast lift in Los Angeles, she returned to have her "after" photos taken.

Reshaping patients' bodies after weight loss has become a specialization at our practice. Many individuals experience concerns such as sagging skin, fatty deposits that cannot be removed through diligent diets and exercise, and loss of volume in areas such as the breast.
For this patient, Dr. Stoker recommended power-assisted liposuction and a breast augmentation. For her breast augmentation, he placed 378cc cohesive silicone gel breast implants placed through an areolar incision into a submuscular pocket. In addition, to provide a toned, taut stomach without excess skin, he performed a tummy tuck in Los Angeles.

He prepared a treatment plan designed to repair her hernia at the same time as the tummy tuck and laser breast reduction.
Six weeks after her tummy tuck, umbilical hernia repair, power-assisted liposuction, and laser breast reduction breast reduction in Los Angeles, she returned to have her "after" photos taken. As these photos show, her stomach is slimmer and more toned, while her smaller breasts appear shapely and natural.

A breast lift in Los Angeles and tummy tuck are sometimes known as a Mommy Makeover when combined. A variety of options are available at our practice for these procedures. In this case, her surgeon used a Laser breast surgery technique. This procedure involves creating an internal, invisible support out of the patient's own skin to support the breast and add upper breast fullness. Her surgeon also corrected the sagging skin on her abdomen by performing a tummy tuck.

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 giving birth, this 38-year-old mother wanted to restore her body to its pre-pregnancy state. She had been exercising and eating right but couldn't seem to regain the muscle tone in her stomach. After months of work with no improvement, she set up a consultation with Dr. Stoker's Practice to discuss plastic surgery in Los Angeles.
Her surgeon listened intently as she expressed her frustration with the sagging skin around her stomach. He explained that during pregnancy, the abdomen muscles separate and weaken, making it difficult to regain muscle tone with diet and exercise alone. He examined her abdomen both standing and laying down to evaluate the degree of loose skin and excess fat tissue. After her assessment, he suggested that she would benefit from a tummy tuck in Los Angeles. Unlike liposuction, which flattens the stomach but does not help with skin laxity, a tummy tuck tightens the abdomen muscles. Eager to get her pre-pregnancy body back, she scheduled an appointment for surgery.
For the procedure, her surgeon removed excess skin and fat using a lower abdominal incision and then tightened the abdominal muscles. Within just ten weeks following her surgery, the patient shows a significant improvement in her waistline with very little fat and no sagging skin. She is very happy with her transformation.
