This 29-year-old woman had a severe amount of sagging skin on her abdomen and in her breasts following her multiple pregnancies. At her age, she felt that her body looked too old and worn, not at all reflecting how old she really was. Wanting to do something about it, she researched plastic surgery in Los Angeles and found Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When she came for her consultation, her surgeon examined her body as she explained her concerns. It was obvious that a tummy tuck would primarily treat the large, sagging rolls on her stomach and with the added help of power-assisted liposuction, her surgeon hoped to completely flatten out her stomach. To address her large, pendulous breasts, her surgeon suggested that she undergo a Laser breast surgery and reduction. With the combined breast surgery, her posture would improve and she would look more like her age. After discussing everything with her surgeon, she was eager to get the surgery underway.
When her Los Angeles liposuction, tummy tuck and breast surgery were completed, she was excited about the results. She now had a more hourglass figure, with full, perky breasts with a smooth and streamlined abdomen. She was very happy that she looked 29 again and fit better into clothing.
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.

This 55-year-old Florida woman heard about Dr. Stoker's Practice and decided to make the trip to California for a consultation because she was generally unhappy with her body after having children. Her breasts were very large and sagged and she was carrying excess fat on her abdomen and flanks. Knowing that a mommy makeover could help improve her figure and reduce her breasts to a more manageable size, she was eager to discuss her options for Los Angeles breast reduction surgery and liposuction.
When she met with her Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, she explained her concerns as he examined her body. Fortunately, she did not have any excess, stretched skin on her abdomen from being pregnant, so she would not need a tummy tuck. Her abdomen could be treated using only power-assisted liposuction, a method which combines traditional tumescent liposuction with faster fat dislodging through a vibrating liposuction tool. Combined with a breast reduction and Laser breast surgery, liposuction could help restore her pre-pregnancy body.

After breastfeeding her children, this 38-year-old mother was disappointed that her nipples had begun to point downward. She also felt that the sagging and large size of her breasts made her look overweight in certain outfits since her breasts hung over her abdomen. Knowing that a skilled Los Angeles plastic surgeon could help her, she scheduled a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
Since the sagging and size of her breasts were her biggest concerns, her surgeon recommended that she have a breast lift and a breast reduction. A Lift would help to restore her breast to a more attractive position on the chest, and with the added effect of the Laser breast surgery, the patient's breasts would maintain their perkiness after surgery. The Laser breast surgery is a procedure that can supplement a breast lift, where the surgeon creates an internal "support" that supports the breast tissue. It was developed to limit the chances of the breast "bottoming out" after surgery, or the tissue drooping below the nipple.
With both these procedures combined, this patient's breasts have now been restored to a more youthful position. Her California breast reduction successfully made her breasts a more comfortable size while still maintaining their femininity and natural contour. Afterwards, she was very happy with her smaller and perkier breasts.

Usually, there is a section of skin that is discarded during a standard breast lift procedure, but this patch of skin was utilized with the laser breast surgery procedure; first it was treated with a CO2 laser and then it was sutured to the chest wall to support the breast tissue after surgery.
For this patient, her surgeon moved the tissue hanging below the breast to a higher and more youthful position and then created the internal support. To finish the procedure, her surgeon also reshaped her areolas so that they were more ideally sized.
After her surgery, she was very pleased that her breasts were full and perky and that her areolas were symmetrical and round. She was very glad she had seen her surgeon for her Los Angeles breast lift.
