This 51-year-old man was bothered by premature aging on his face. He felt that he appeared angry or grumpy even when he was happy inside. Dr. Stoker performed a facelift, upper eyelid lift and carbon dioxide laser resurfacing of his lower eyelids. He is shown before and three months following his surgery. He now feels it is easier for him to smile and he is particularly pleased with his natural-appearing result.
This 61-year-old woman was bothered by the laxity in her neck and jowls that was becoming more noticeable in recent years. Dr. Stoker performed a lower facelift and necklift, along with laser resurfacing of her eyelids, to achieve a more youthful appearance. She is shown before and eight weeks following her surgery.
This 66-year-old woman came to Dr. Stoker's Practice to reduce the amount of age-related wrinkles and sagging in her skin. She specifically wanted fewer lines around her eyes and mouth and tighter skin around her jaw line, but she wasn't sure which procedure was right for her. So, she called to request an initial consultation.
During the meeting, she met with her plastic surgeon and expressed her wish for a rejuvenated appearance. As a leading cosmetic surgeon in Los Angeles, he offered his professional advice and recommended face lift surgery with carbon dioxide laser resurfacing. He mentioned that a Los Angeles face lift would firm and tighten the skin and reduce the look of "jowls" while the laser resurfacing treatment would erase wrinkles and improve skin tone. Since combining these procedures would give her the overall effect she was looking for, she scheduled an appointment.
Only one month after her surgery, she visited her surgeon again to take her post-operative photos. The pictures revealed a much younger looking appearance with fewer wrinkles and firmer skin around the jaw. She is very happy with her results and would highly recommend Dr. Stoker's Practice.
This 47-year-old woman was interested in total facial rejuvenation. Concerned about the look of her brow, eyes, lower face, lips and skin tone, she decided to look for a Los Angeles plastic surgerycenter which staffed skilled surgeons experienced at performing multiple facial surgeries. After some research, she decided to schedule a consultation with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice.
When she came in for her consultation, she discussed her concerns with her surgeon and asked him what he recommended for her. Since she had multiple concerns and would need multiple surgeries to address them, her surgeon recommended that she combine some of the procedures to minimize her recovery downtime. He would perform the surgical procedures, the facelift, eyelid surgery and brow lift, together and once she recovered from surgery, he would perform the lip augmentation and carbon dioxide laser skin resurfacing.
This patient was given time to recover from her Los Angeles eyelid surgery , facelift, brow lift and non-surgical procedures before these "after" photos were taken. As can be seen in the photos, she looks dramatically younger and very refreshed. The skin along her jowls and jaw has been smoothed and tightened and her eyes appear more alert and open. She was very pleased with the results of her procedures and was happy she had decided to come to Dr. Stoker's Practice.
This 53-year-old woman was interested in taking a few years off of her appearance. She was mainly concerned with the skin along her jaw and the heavy, excess skin above her eyes. Knowing that a skilled Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon could subtly rejuvenate her face without making her look unnatural, she decided to contact Dr. Stoker's Practice for an appointment.
During her consultation, her surgeon asked her about her concerns and what changes she would like to see. She explained how she was unhappy that the skin on her jaw and above her eyes had begun to sag with time, making her look older and tired. After examining both her eyes and lower face, her surgeon suggested that she consider having eyelid surgery and a facelift. The combined procedures would give her face a more comprehensive rejuvenation than they would alone, and both could be performed concurrently to minimize her recovery downtime. Together, she and her surgeon agreed that she would have a short-incision facelift and eyelid surgery.
After her surgeries were completed and she was given time to recover, these postoperative photos were taken. As can be seen in the photos, her face looks fresh and younger. Her eyes look alert and more open following her surgery. When asked what she liked most about her eyelid surgery and facelift in Los Angeles, she said she was particularly happy with the smoothing of her skin and the definition along her jaw.
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 61-year-old woman came to Dr. Stoker's Practice because she wanted to shave a few years off of her appearance. She has been unhappy with the look of her neck, lower face and eyes for some time and decided to look for a Los Angles or Santa Monica plastic surgeon who could help her turn back the clock.
When she came in for her consultation, she and her surgeon discussed which surgeries would best address her concerns. He surgeon suggested that she consider a facelift, which would treat the sagging skin along her jowl and neck, and eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, which would treat the sagging skin above her eyes. He would use a less-invasive technique, called a short incision facelift, which has minimal visible scaring and promotes a quicker recovery in addition to using the latest laser technology to encourage better healing with the blepharoplasty. To minimize the recovery time even more, her surgeon would perform the procedures in conjunction with each other rather than in separate stages.
When her consultation was over, she eagerly scheduled her surgery and when her Los Angeles blepharoplasty and facelift were completed, she was thrilled with the results. As can be seen in her "after" photos, this patient's face is dramatically rejuvenated; her eyes appear more open, alert and youthful and her jowl is smooth, taut and even. She particularly enjoyed her natural and younger appearance after surgery.
