This 55-year-old woman came to Dr. Stoker's Practice hoping to reverse some of the age-related changes that had been accumulating over the past decade. She expressed concerns about the sagging skin along her jaw and the heaviness of her eyelids, which can be seen in her "before" photos.
During her consultation, her surgeon examined her face and asked what she wanted to change exactly. To address her concerns, her surgeon recommended that she have eyelid surgery and a facelift in Los Angeles. In addition, he suggested that she consider having chin augmentation to add balance to her profile and give her a more prominent jaw line. All three procedures would give her comprehensive rejuvenation and take years off of her appearance. What's more, her surgeon could safely perform all three procedures during the same surgery to minimize her recovery downtime.
When her Los Angeles cosmetic surgery was completed, she was given time to recover before we took these "after" photos. After a smooth recovery, her face looks youthful and her eyes look alert and striking. When asked how she felt about her new appearance, she said she was thrilled with the results and would recommend her
This 44-year-old woman desired a smaller nose and more prominent chin. Dr. Stoker performed a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation with an Implantech Extended Anatomical Chin Implant, size small. She is shown before and six weeks following surgery. Her results will continue to improve over the next year.
This 71-year-old man wanted his appearance to better match the youthful energy that he felt on the inside. Dr. Stoker performed a facelift, necklift and chin augmentation to achieve his goal. He also performed a subtle secondary rhinoplasty procedure to create a more natural look. The patient is shown before and five weeks following his surgery.
This 35-year-old woman was very unhappy with the look and shape of her nose, which she felt was very prominent and hooked downward, distracting from her other facial features. After considering surgery for a while, she felt it was time to have a smaller, more feminine nose. She began looking for a Los Angeles rhinoplasty specialist to achieve the look she wanted, eventually scheduling a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
When she met with her surgeon, she expressed a concern about dramatically changing the look of her nose. Her surgeon explained that although the transformation would be dramatic from the profile view, it would not change her appearance entirely, or in other words, she would not look like someone else. He also suggested adding chin augmentation as well to balance her profile even further, but even with this addition, she would still see effective and subtle, rather than dramatic, improvement. After the specifics of her surgery were planned, she was eager to have a new look.
Her "after" photos were taken after she had recovered from her Los Angeles plastic surgery. They show a radical transformation in the proportions of her face and in the femininity of her nose. She now has a smaller nose with a feminine contour that balances nicely with her new chin. She was thrilled with the results.
