A contestant on the popular NBC show, the Biggest Loser, this 27-year-old man lost 220 pounds through diet and exercise. Many individuals who have lost substantial amounts of weight want to correct issues such as excess skin. For his body contouring, this man chose Dr. David Stoker for his post-weight loss surgery in Los Angeles. After evaluating the patient, Dr. Stoker recommended an upper body lift and abdominoplasty.
Dr. Stoker has become known for its success in helping patients who have lost weight regain their body's tone and shape before their weight gain and loss. In some cases, in addition to planning different procedures such as a male breast reduction and tummy tuck in Los Angeles, the surgeon can stage the procedures for a more manageable recovery. In other cases, combining procedures into one surgery minimizes downtime. Our practice's surgeons are experienced in customizing each treatment plan to the individual patient's health and surgery goals.
This 28-year-old man felt uncomfortable with the look of his chest. A condition known as gynecomastia, this patient's breasts had an excess of tissue and fat resulting in protruding breasts. After living with the issue for a while, he decided it was time to find a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon who frequently treated gynecomastia. Eventually, he contacted Dr. Stoker's Practice for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
When he came in for his consultation, his surgeon examined his breasts and suggested that using power-assisted liposuction on his chest was the best course of action. Since this patient did not have an excess of breast tissue, only an excess of fat, liposuction alone could smooth his chest and give him a more masculine look. Using small, barely noticeably incisions, his surgeon could remove the fat quickly and efficiently with the assistance of a small, vibrating cannula – the device used to remove fat during power-assisted liposuction.
This patient saw immediate improvement and a much flatter chest once his body had time to heal. His "after" photos were taken two months following his liposuction in Los Angeles and show a noticeable decrease in breast size. He was very happy with the results.
This 24-year-old man was uncomfortable with the look of his chest, especially when he wasn't wearing a shirt. He had accumulated fat on his breasts, creating a condition called gynecomastia which resulted in enlarged breasts. Wanting to have a more masculine appearance, he decided to research different Los Angeles plastic surgery centers to find one that performed male breast reduction. He eventually scheduled a consultation at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When he met with his surgeon, he asked what his options were for treatment. His surgeon first examined this patient's breasts and concluded that he would only need to perform liposuction to reduce their size. He would use a swift and effective technique called power-assisted liposuction to remove the fatty deposits that had accumulated and would only need to make small incisions to perform the surgery. Once the surgery was completed, the patient would wear a compression garment to promote better healing.
Two months after his Los Angeles liposuction, this patient returned to have his "after" photos taken. His breasts are clearly flatter in his "after" photos and show no real signs of surgery. He was very happy with the results of his surgery and felt greater confidence when not wearing a shirt.
Many men choose cosmetic surgery after weight loss to help trim away loose skin and lingering fat. At age 19, this young man had lost almost 100 pounds through diet and exercise, but even though he was pleased with his new shape overall, he still felt self-conscious about the extra skin that was hanging from his abdomen and chest. He researched his options for different cosmetic surgeons and decided to meet with board-certified Beverly Hills area plastic surgeon at Dr. David Stoker.
At his consultation he explained that he was interested in male breast reduction surgery and possibly a tummy tuck. Dr. Stoker examined him and agreed that he would be a great candidate for both procedures, and they scheduled a time for surgery.
A tummy tuck is very similar for both men and women, but male breast reduction is very different from female breast reduction. Unlike women, some men can get good results with liposuction alone, and even in cases where men will need some skin or glandular tissue removed, the incision is much smaller and positioned differently. The result is a firmer, flatter, and more angular appearance that fits much better with the male physique.
This young man's combined procedure has dramatically improved his body contour, and the results are evident even at this point in the healing process. His chest looks flatter and firmer, his tummy tuck in Los Angeles has tightened his abdomen considerably, and his whole body looks much younger. The small scars on his chest are still visible this soon after surgery, but they will continue to fade, and in about a year they should be very difficult to notice.
