This 56-year-old woman complained of breast asymmetry and capsular contracture. She also desired larger breasts. Dr. Stoker performed breast capsulotomies and correction of her breast asymmetry. He replaced her implants with 475cc, textured, anatomical shape, cohesive gel “gummy” implants placed under the muscle through areolar incisions. He also corrected the depression that she had on her right areola. She is shown before and six months following her surgery.
This 46-year-old woman desired fuller and more ideally shaped breasts. She developed some droopiness of her breasts in the years since her first breast augmentation. Dr. Stoker removed her existing implants and replaced them with 600cc smooth silicone gel implants placed through her existing areolar incisions. She is shown before and three months following her surgery.
This 43-year-old mother complained of breast asymmetry and changes in the shape of her breasts following pregnancy. She had breast implants placed years earlier by another surgeon. To improve her breast symmetry and shape, Dr. Stoker performed a capsulotomy, right breast lift and replacement of implants with 507cc midrange profile, silicone gel implants. She is shown before and one year following her surgery.
This 28-year-old woman flew in from Europe for corrective surgery after having a poor outcome from breast augmentation performed in her home country. After carefully considering her options, she elected to remove her implants and reconstruct her breasts. Dr. Stoker performed her surgery and was able to restore the shape she had before her breast operation in Europe.
This patient had breast asymmetry and left capsular contracture years after having breast augmentation by another surgeon. Dr. Stoker performed breast capsulectomies and replacement with new silicone gel implants. She is shown before and approximately two months following her surgery.
This 45-year-old mother wanted to have smaller breast implants and a breast lift. She decided to have a consultation with a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who performed breast implant revision surgery and chose Dr. Stoker's Practice.
After listening to her concerns, her surgeon recommended removing her current saline implants and replacing them with smaller, 290cc midrange profile silicone gel implants. He also suggested that she have a breast lift.
When women are considering breast implant revision in Los Angeles, they know that it is important to choose their surgeon carefully. For that reason, the board-certified plastic surgeons at our practice make sure to discuss thoroughly the options open to each patient, including the type of implant, size, and incision.
Three months after her breast enhancement, these "after" photos were taken. Her breasts appear much more natural and are more proportional to her frame. She has been wearing silicone scar tape to help the incision scars to fade, which have temporarily resulted in pale lines around the incisions.
This 28-year-old woman had saline breast implants from another surgeon and developed "capsular contractures." This condition occurs when excessive scar tissue forms around the breast implants, causing it to harden and take on a distorted shape. Even though she had her previous implants removed, her breasts still looked misshapen. Knowing she needed a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon she could trust, she called for a consultation with Dr. David Stoker.
She met with Dr. Stoker and explained the plastic surgery complications she had faced as well as her wish to improve the look and size of her breasts. After a brief physical examination, he recommended a breast augmentation revision in Los Angeles to enhance the size of her breasts. Additionally, he suggested a capsulotomy to remove the scar formation and prevent capsular contractures from developing again. She tried on a variety of implant sizes under support and settled on the 550cc silicone gel implants, which are typically chosen over saline implants because of their more natural feel.
For the operation, Dr. Stoker first placed an incision through the areola to perform the capsulotomy and then inserted the implants. Her breasts now look noticeably fuller with a more natural, rounded shape. She is very happy and confident in her appearance.
This 47-year-old mother was dissatisfied with a previous breast augmentation surgery, resulting in capsular contracture. Additionally, pregnancy and thin tissue coverage also contributed to her breast deformity. She searched for a Los Angeles plastic surgery practice that would help her correct her breasts and provide a more natural look. After meeting with the surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice, she decided upon a breast lift and replacing her saline implants with silicone gel implants, as well as abdominoplasty.
Her surgeon performed a breast capsulotomy, a breast lift, replacement of her old implants with silicone gel implants, as well as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). Her surgeon used incisions around the circumference of the areolas. Her breasts were lifted to create a more symmetric look, and her new implants reduced the appearance of rippling. After two months following her surgery she returned to Dr. Stoker's Practice to take her "after" photographs. She is incredibly satisfied with her implant replacement and breast lift in Los Angeles.
After having undergone breast augmentation and liposuction at another plastic surgery center, this 38-year-old woman wanted to increase the size of her breasts further and improve their shape. After looking for a board-certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon, she found Dr. Stoker's Practice and scheduled a consultation.
She expressed her concerns to her surgeon during her consultation. Because she was unhappy with the shape of her silicone implants, her surgeon recommended that she have 500cc cohesive gel implants placed through incisions around her areolas (or the skin around the nipple). These implants would mimic the feel of real breast tissue and when placed properly, would give her more natural-looking breasts. During her surgery, her surgeon removed the silicone implants and inserted her new gel implants into a desirable position.
Five months after her Los Angeles breast augmentation revision, she returned to have her post-operative photos taken. As can be seen in her photos, her breasts appear much more even and fuller than in her "before" photos. She was very happy with the results and was thankful for her surgeon's care and precision when performing her surgery.
Years after receiving disappointing results from other surgeons, this Los Angeles woman chose Dr. Stoker to help her achieve the results she had wanted all along. 19 years ago, this woman received breast augmentation with silicone implants in a procedure performed by another surgeon. Two years later, also from another surgeon, she had also received a circumareolar mastopexy (breast lift) to correct the diameters of her areolas. Over the next two decades, she developed a progressive deformity of both breasts, and at age 45 she decided to meet with Dr. Stoker to discuss how plastic surgery after pregnancy could help.
During her examination, her surgeon found that she had developed capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue around the implant pocket) on each side. Her areolas were enlarged and puffy, and she had highly visible scars around each. Her right implant had also ruptured, she had developed a "double bubble" deformity on the underside of each breast where the implant was positioned poorly, and she had also lost fullness at the sides of her breasts, creating an imbalanced shape.
After discussing her options thoroughly with Dr. Stoker, she decided on a combination procedure that would correct the excess of scar tissue (capsulotomy), replace her implants, and elevate her new breast mound. In her procedure her surgeon removed her old implants and performed capusulotomies on each side to refine the implant pocket, then placed new textured 275cc moderate-plus profile silicone gel implants in a submuscular position. During the same procedure he performed a breast lift (mastopexy) on each side to reduce her areola size and eliminate her double bubble shape.
In her postoperative photos, taken just six weeks after her breast implant corrective surgery and Beverly Hills breast lift, the patient shows obvious improvement. Notice in the 3/4 view photos how her revision surgery has not only corrected the position of her breasts, but also refined their shape and projection so that they look much more natural. Her scars are healing well, and she is already very pleased with her results.
