This 28-year-old woman was unhappy with the size of her breasts and the way they had begun to hang lower on her chest. She wanted to find a qualified surgeon who performed breast enlargement in Los Angeles, but she was concerned that breast augmentation might make her breasts look unnatural. After meeting with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker, she felt confident that a breast augmentation and a breast lift could make her breasts look full and perky without making them look unnatural.
To minimize scarring, Dr. Stoker recommended that her implants be inserted through incisions made around the areolas, or the darker skin around the nipple. An incision around the areolas instead of an incision underneath the breast fold ensures that the scar blends in better. Typically, the scar is hidden by the darker skin and can be hardly noticeable when it fades. Additionally, Dr. Stoker was able to perform a breast lift through these same incisions to address the droopiness of her breasts.
After her procedure, this patient's breasts look perky, full and natural. She was very content with the new look of her breasts and grateful to Dr. Stoker for performing her augmentation and breast lift in Southern California.
After having a breast augmentation in Europe, this 25-year-old woman felt that her areolas (the skin around the nipple) were positioned unnaturally low, especially from a profile view. She was satisfied with her current implants, not wanting to replace them with newer Los Angeles breast implants, but she was bothered by her inverted nipples and wanted them corrected in addition to repositioning them with a breast lift.
When nipples are inverted, they appear to point inward. It can be caused from a number of things, but it can be treated through plastic surgery. To address her concerns, Dr. Stoker performed bilateral (both sides) inverted nipple repair to make her nipples look more natural. Dr. Stoker also made incisions only around the circumference of her areolas to minimize scarring, enabling him to perform a breast lift, repositioning her nipples without making further incisions.
As the "after" pictures show, her breasts look much more natural with the new position of her areolas. Additionally, her surgeon was able to successfully correct her inverted nipples, making them appear normal and symmetrical. Overall, she was very happy with her results and glad that she had undergone Los Angeles breast lift and nipple repair.
Discontent with her small breasts, this 22-year-old woman wanted to increase her cup size to a C. She was also concerned that having a breast augmentation might cause her areolas (the skin around the nipple) to increase in size, so when she met with Dr. David Stoker, she expressed her concerns and asked what options she had for increasing the size of her breasts while still having them look natural.
To address this concern, Dr. Stoker suggested that during her breast augmentation in Los Angeles, he could insert the implants through small, areolar incisions. This location for the incision would also allow Dr. Stoker to correct one of the patient's other concerns, the position of her areolas. She wanted her nipples to sit higher on her breasts, so during her operation, Dr. Stoker performed a breast lift in addition to the augmentation to reposition her nipples.
The entire procedure was done through the incisions made around her areolas. Her implants were inserted into submuscular pockets which make her breasts look more natural despite being larger in size. There was only minimal scarring around her areolas and the patient's breasts look fuller and proportionate. Dr. Stoker was able to maintain the size of her areolas while giving her the look she wanted. Overall, this patient was happy that she decided to have both an augmentation and a breast lift in Los Angeles.
This 23-year-old woman wanted her breasts to be fuller and more symmetrical. Her right breast drooped slightly more than her left and the nipple was positioned about one centimeter lower than her left side. Additionally, her right nipple was half an inch larger in diameter than her left. Unhappy with her breasts' appearance she wanted to find a Los Angeles breast augmentation surgeon with had a lot of experience working with cases like hers. She made an appointment with Dr. David Stoker to discuss her options for breast enhancement.
To address her right-side asymmetry, Dr. Stoker performed a breast lift with the incision limited to around the nipple to minimize scarring and to match her left side. Her breast implants were inserted through areolar incisions (around the nipple) and placed into a submuscular pocket. This placement often gives patients a natural slope and shape without inhibiting breast function.
After her surgery, this patient's breasts were dramatically larger and more even than before. Her surgeon was able to improve the size, shape and position of the breasts by combining augmentation and a breast lift in Southern California. She was very pleased with her results.
This 37-year-old mother came to Dr. David Stoker unhappy with how her breasts had become smaller, droopier and enlarged at the areolas (the skin around the nipple). She wanted to restore her pre-pregnancy appearance by undergoing breast enlargement in Los Angeles.
Because her breasts had begun to droop, Dr. Stoker recommended a breast lift in addition to a breast augmentation. While the augmentation would make her breasts fuller and shapelier, augmentation alone cannot fix sagging. Instead, breast lift surgery is required to restore the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest.
During her surgery, Dr. Stoker placed her implants underneath her pectoral muscle, a method that typically yields a natural-looking shape and slope of the breasts. For this patient, the "after" pictures show a dramatic improvement in the appearance of her breasts. Her surgeon was able to adjust their position and enlarge them, making them similar to how they looked before she had children. She was very content with the results of her Los Angeles breast lift and augmentation procedure.
This 28-year-old woman had never had children, but her breasts had begun to droop, making them look older than they should for her age. Unhappy with her breasts' appearance, she began looking for a Los Angeles breast implants specialist who could help her look her age. She made an appointment with board-certified plastic surgeon at Dr. David Stoker, determined to enhance the look of her breasts.
Since her breasts were drooping, Dr. Stoker recommended a breast lift in addition to a breast augmentation. A breast lift surgery repositions the breasts higher on the chest to make them look more youthful rather than older, which this patient wanted. In addition, Dr. Stoker recommended a breast augmentation with her breast implants placed below the pectoral muscle. This placement typically provides a natural slope and shape of the breast while not inhibiting breast feeding should this patient choose to have children later on.
As the "after" photos show, this patient's breasts appear much fuller and shapelier than before. They sit at a youthful position on her chest while still looking natural, making her appear more her age. She was incredibly happy with the results and happy that she had chosen to have both augmentation and breast lift in Los Angeles.
This 33-year-old woman had undergone a breast augmentation procedure in another country, but felt that her upper breasts looked artificially full. She was also unhappy that her nipples pointed downward, so she decided to find a Los Angeles breast implants specialist who could make her breasts look symmetrical and natural.
Dr. David Stoker recommended that they replace her old implants with new silicone gel implants that had a smaller volume and base diameter. The silicone implants would give her a more natural slope on her upper breast, but implants alone could not correct her downward nipple position. Dr. Stoker suggested that they perform a circumareolar (around the nipple) breast lift to both breasts in order to make her nipples symmetrical in size and position.
With a circumareolar breast lift, the surgeon removes a circular patch of skin shaped like a doughnut around the areola skin (the skin around the nipple) and then repositions the nipple higher, suturing the skin around the nipple, which lifts the breast with no long, unattractive scars underneath or down the breast.
After her implants and were replaced and her breast lift in Southern California completed, she was given time to recover. After she had healed, the "after" photos were taken, showing great improvement in symmetry in her areolar size and position. Additionally, as the profile image shows, her breasts slope much more naturally and no longer appear too full. She was very happy with the improvement and glad that she finally had breasts that looked natural and even.
This 35-year-old mother had been unhappy with the way her breasts looked after having children. She wanted her breasts to look symmetrical and be a similar size to her shape before she breastfed her children. After doing some research, she decided to consult with Dr. David Stoker because she wanted to see an experienced Los Angeles breast augmentation surgeon.
After discussing her concerns about her breasts, this patient learned more about breast augmentation from her surgeon. For her particular case, Dr. Stoker believed that a breast lift would be best to reposition her breasts and eliminate her asymmetry. He recommended that she have a laser breast lift procedure in conjunction with her breast lift. In the procedure, Dr. Stoker utilizes the skin that supports the nipple, which is normally discarded after surgery, by internally suturing it to the chest wall after treating it with a CO2 laser. By adding the laser breast lift, the surgeon is able to lift a patient's breasts in a way that is natural and lasting.
Together with breast implants, the breast lift completely changed the appearance of this patient's breasts. Her areolas (the skin around her nipples) are now symmetrical and smaller than before surgery and her nipples are positioned evenly on her breasts. In her "after" photos, her breasts look fuller and more youthful. She was very pleased with the results of her breast augmentation and breast lift in Los Angeles.
After having five children, this 41 year old mother was bothered by all the changes to her body. Knowing that there are plastic surgery procedures available today such as tummy tucks in Los Angeles, she scheduled an appointment with plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker for a mommy makeover procedure.
During her consultation, she and Dr. Stoker together decided that to help her achieve the results she wanted, her mommy makeover should consist of a breast lift, liposuction, and a tummy tuck (not pictured).
During her procedure, her breasts were lifted using the laser breast lift technique, which is a popular choice at our practice for creating a look that lasts through an internal brassiere that uses a patient's own natural tissue. During her tummy tuck and liposuction in Los Angeles, her excess skin and fat were removed, and her muscles were pulled tighter together.
Her results turned out very well and she loves her new look. From the side view in particular it is easy to see that her breasts now appear to be very perky. Also, from the frontal view, both her breasts and nipples appear more lifted. This was a very successful mommy makeover procedure.
This is a 34 year old mother of two who wanted a mommy makeover. As a 4'10" woman weighing 115 pounds, she knew that having a breast lift combined with tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and liposuction in Los Angeles would help her achieve the look that she desired. She scheduled an appointment for a mommy makeover with Dr. David Stoker.
Her breast lift was performed using the laser breast lift technique. The laser breast lift uses a flap of skin that is specially prepared with a CO2 laser to create an internal brassiere that attaches to the upper chest wall. This serves much like the padding of a push up support to keep the breasts in their lifted position after the breast lift. For her tummy tuck and liposuction, her surgeon created an incision on her lower abdomen just below her bikini line where he removed excess skin and fat and retightened the abdominal muscles.
The procedure went very well; she now has more youthful-looking breasts that are a 34C support size. Also, her tummy appears very flat and smooth and is healing very quickly. She is pleased with the results of her mommy makeover by Dr. David Stoker.
