This 36-year-old woman wanted to have a stronger chin to balance out the proportions of her face so she began looking for a skilled plastic surgeon in Los Angeles who could advise her. After some consideration, she scheduled a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
During her consultation, she expressed her concerns as her surgeon listened carefully. He explained to her that chin implants were a safe and effective solution to her problem, and by using only a small incision below her chin, he would insert the implant with minimal scarring. She had the choice between a silicone and an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) implant, both of which have a history of safety. Once the implant was placed, the improvement would be immediate and would last.
Following her Los Angeles plastic surgery, this patient's profile is more defined like she had originally wanted. Although it was a subtle change, her appearance was dramatically altered as can be seen in her after photos. From the profile view, her chin is balanced with the shape of her face, rather than being recessed. Overall, she was very happy with the results of her surgery and felt more confident in her appearance.
This 38-year-old man prided himself in having a very athletic physique, but felt that his moderately recessed chin was inconsistent with the rest of his appearance. He was also concerned about the look of his heavy eyelids which made him look tired, even though he wasn't. Wanting to improve his appearance, he decided to contact Dr. Stoker's Practice for a consultation after hearing about the Los Angeles cosmetic surgery center.
When he met with his surgeon, he explained his concerns as his surgeon listened intently. To achieve the look he wanted, his surgeon suggested that he have chin augmentation to treat his recessed chin and eyelid surgery to open up his eyes and make him look more alert. His surgeon would perform the chin augmentation by making a small incision under the patient's chin and inserting an implant. After his surgeon completed the chin augmentation, the surgeon would remove excess skin and fat to improve the look of the patient's eyelids.
After his Los Angeles eyelid surgery and chin augmentation were completed, this patient was given time to recover before these "after" photos were taken. As can be seen in his photos, his eyes are more open and his chin is more in balance with the rest of his profile. He was very happy about the results of his surgeries and felt that his face was more consistent with the rest of his appearance.
This 28-year-old woman wanted to have greater definition of her jaw and neck so she began exploring her options for plastic surgery. After researching several centers for plastic surgery, she decided to meet will a skilled Los Angeles plastic surgeon at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
This patient was unhappy with the fat that had accumulated on her neck and that seemed to draw attention to her slightly recessed chin. To address her concerns, her surgeon recommended that she undergo both facial liposuction and chin augmentation. With a chin implant placed through a small incision under her chin, this patient would achieve noticeably definition in her profile safely and easily. And, with the added liposuction, the improvements would be even more dramatic. The procedures could be performed conjointly to minimize her downtime following surgery.
As can be seen in her "after" photos, this patient experienced a dramatic improvement in the balance of her profile and in chin definition after her Los Angeles liposuction and chin augmentation surgery. When asked how she felt about the changes, she said she was absolutely thrilled and was happy that she even looked a little slimmer afterwards.
This 51-year-old woman came to Dr. Stoker's Practice because she wanted a more youthful-looking neck and jaw. Her primary concern was with the "turkey neck," or excess skin and fat on her neck, which had developed with time. After reading about plastic surgery, she began looking for a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon who could help her achieve the look she wanted.
When she came in for her consultation, her surgeon examined her neck and jowl and determined that although she had good skin elasticity on her neck, her chin was recessed, making it challenging to treat her neck with liposuction alone. To best achieve the look she wanted, he recommended that she have chin augmentation which would provide for a more attractive neck and profile. Combined with liposuction, the procedure would create a youthful and distinguished profile.
After her surgeon placed a chin implant to balance her profile, he performed liposuction on her neck to refine her face even more. When she recovered after her Los Angeles liposuction and chin augmentation, she came in for a post-operative evaluation, when these "after" photos were taken. As can be seen in the photos, her profile has been radically transformed. Her chin balances well with the rest of her face and her neck has a youthful and slim contour. When asked how she felt about her new appearance, she said she was thrilled with the results.
