It’s frustrating that physique is often determined by genetics and age. No matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you can still have stubborn fat deposits. In particular, fat tends to shift to the midsection in men and can become resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with it. For my male patients, liposuction is an effective way to regain a leaner abdominal area and chest. As a liposuction specialist, I’ve helped many Los Angeles and Santa Monica men feel more confident with and without a shirt.

We have a really healthy 43-year-old male who works out a lot and diets often. He's really into looking good, he takes great care of himself, but he wanted to take it to the next level. I performed AB etching to create the illusion of enhanced abdominal musculature. In particular, the rectus abdominis, six-pack muscles, are much more defined.... Read More

We have a great example of this 53-year-old male patient who worked out very hard, as you can tell from his muscular build. And he was also trying to eat healthily, but as he is now 53 years old, in the last 20 years, he's slowly gained a little bit of weight with each decade. And that's pretty typical. He was bothered by his appearance. He f... Read More

Liposuction Just for You

Like every man, you have your own individual anatomy and concerns about your physique. I make a point of understanding your goals as thoroughly as possible. During your consultation for liposuction, I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your specific needs.

Dr. Stoker Explains Liposuction for Men

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. I have refined my techniques to such a degree that I often perform the liposuction with local anesthetic alone. Through tiny incisions, I remove fat using small suction tubes called cannulas. What makes my liposuction procedure special is that fat is selectively removed. This keeps blood vessels, nerves and skin intact so the skin can contract around your leaner shape.

Why Choose Dr. Stoker
Professional Resume


The surgeon performing your liposuction is the most important factor determining your results. The technique a surgeon uses is also significant and can play a large role in the outcome of your surgery. The techniques I find most helpful include: power-assisted liposuction (PAL), tumescent liposuction, and laser liposuction. Each has its benefits, and the one I use depends on your skin tone, amount of fat and complementary procedures being performed. Generally, though, I recommend PAL because it gives me greater precision in sculpting the most desirable shape. It has the quickest recovery time, as well.

During your initial consultation, we’ll work together to customize the approach that works best for you.


Men of all ages can benefit from liposuction. As we get older, however, career and family obligations can take on a life of their own. It becomes increasingly difficult to find time to care for ourselves. Liposuction in Los Angeles often serves as the catalyst men need to commit to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. It’s important to note that liposuction is an excellent procedure for body contouring but not for weight loss. That is the role of diet and exercise.

Many of my male patients choose nonsurgical facial rejuvenation including BOTOX®, fillers or skin resurfacing to complement their liposuction. In today’s competitive workplace, looking energized can be as important as looking physically fit.


Liposuction surgery is safe and easy. Some patients experience moderate discomfort and soreness, but they tell me it’s easily managed with mild pain medication. In general, my patients recover quickly from liposuction and resume normal activities within 2 days.


No procedure is without risks, but the majority of complications associated with liposuction are minor. Possible risks include infection, skin damage or blood clots. All of these are extremely uncommon in my practice.
