Dr. David Stoker, a liposuction authority in Los Angeles, has authored a plastic surgery textbook chapter focusing on effective liposuction planning and techniques.

Board-certified plastic surgeon and liposuction authority Dr. David Stoker ( has recently contributed a chapter on liposuction techniques in the new medical textbook Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Stoker is regarded as a pioneer in new liposuction techniques, and in his chapter provides updated information on the latest procedure approaches for liposuction surgery in Los Angeles.

"Liposuction is more popular than ever, and the methodologies we use are constantly improving," explains Dr. Stoker. "I work hard to stay at the forefront of the latest developments, and I'm very pleased to be able to share my insight and experience in this way."

Dr. Stoker collaborated with New York plastic surgeon Dr. Gerald H. Pitman to write the chapter, offering detailed information to help plastic surgeons plan and execute liposuction procedures accurately. This information forms the groundwork for subsequent chapters focusing on specific techniques and procedures ranging from lipoabdominoplasty to ultrasonic liposuction.

"Today's techniques mean we can treat a broader range of patients and remove fat from practically any area of the body, but at the same time, the variety of options means it's more important than ever for surgeons to stay up-to-date on the latest innovations," explains Dr. Stoker. "For me, writing this chapter was about being able to share my experience in ways that will help other surgeons and patients stay updated and informed, and in the end make better Los Angeles liposuction surgery choices."

A graduate of Stanford University and board-certified plastic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. Stoker is a recognized authority in Los Angeles liposuction techniques that allow for smoother, more effective removal of fat. In addition to performing liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures in Marina Del Rey, California, Dr. Stoker instructs other surgeons about the latest techniques, and even teaches a course on body contouring through the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Stoker's body contouring procedures cover the full spectrum from standard tumescent liposuction to [Smartlipo™ laser liposuction, but he says that staying up to date on procedures is about more than just offering the latest options.

"Great results start with accurate assessments of a patient's cosmetic needs and health history along with their goals, so to that end Dr. Pitman and I worked to present our insights in ways that help surgeons adjust their approaches to the individual patient," he explains. "My goal is to share the techniques I've learned and developed so that other doctors across the country can help their patients achieve more satisfying results."
