In Santa Monica and the Los Angeles area, people who have experienced a disappointing liposuction result the first time often go the extra mile to find a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience. Liposuction results that need correction require the high level of skill and experience of a body contouring specialist.
This 27-year-old woman already had a nice figure, but she was bothered by small fatty bulges that were obvious in certain clothing. Losing weight didn't make sense for this patient because she was comfortable at her current weight and felt that if she lost more weight through diet that her face and neck would look too lean. Instead, she began looking... Read More
This 23-year-old woman from Europe wanted to refine her figure, but since she is a model, she was worried that her face and neck would appear undesirably too thin if she were to lose more weight through diet and exercise. She came to Dr. Stoker's practice to find a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who could help her achieve the look she wanted without... Read More
As a specialist in body sculpting, it’s common for patients to seek me out to revise poor outcomes from liposuction done elsewhere. Many of these patients are candidates for revision liposuction or fat grafting. But while the need for corrective liposuction is common, plastic surgeons who can skillfully improve a contour problem may be more difficult to find.
It requires years of experience to deliver consistently pleasing results because corrective liposuction is difficult to perform. Each patient requires an individualized surgical plan. Most often, the approach involves at least two techniques and sometimes more than one session.
I have been performing corrective liposuction for many years and find the procedure very satisfying. I welcome you to request a consultation online or call

Liposuction results such as unnatural indentations, lumps, sagging, and creases can usually be improved with corrective liposuction. Depressions can be filled via fat transfer. I’ve been working on an exciting project with stem cell research with UCLA, where we have found that 90% of fat I remove is still alive after 96 hours in the laboratory. This is consistent with my clinical observation of excellent results with fat grafting. My gentle liposuction technique ensures that harvested fat cells have the best chance of surviving.
Areas that are overly prominent or lumpy can be treated with very gentle, precise power-assisted liposuction. The PAL system allows me a great deal of control so I can achieve fine sculpting for my patients.
Recovery from corrective liposuction is usually swift. Because I am careful to minimize tissue trauma and because the procedure is highly targeted, most people can get back to their lives in one or two days.

When you describe the concept of fat transfer procedures to patients, their faces tend to light up. “You can take fat from an area where I don’t want it and then put it where it will make me look better?” Fat transfer can offer the best of both worlds for the right patients. Even though… Read On
