Why Best Plastic Surgery?

What Best Plastic Surgery does and why and how it does it, is different to other Los Angeles area plastic surgeons. We are known for treating our patients like friends, not like numbers or profit centers.

Our patients like us, and all you have to do is see our reviews to know that. Our number one competitive advantage is that people come back to us, and recommend that their friends and family come to us.

What makes our business unique and better than the competition is the level of care. We have a process that ensures patient satisfaction, and our Chief Surgeon is always available to answer your concerns. Except maybe when he is actually in surgery, giving other patients the looks that they desire!

We can also mention our awards won, distinctions given, number of procedures done, company philosophy (we promise to keep it short), and our interesting company history. But really, it all comes down to you.

Liposuction & Body Sculpting

Body sculpting procedures are used to reshape the body’s contours. Procedures include:

  • liposuction to remove unwanted fat,
  • tummy tuck to remove excess and drooping abdominal skin, and
  • body lift procedures including arm lifts and thigh lifts that reduce the effects of massive weight loss.

Hi-definition liposuction can help recapture patients’ youthful body, neck or facial appearance. It can also be used to create a more muscular look. For examples of Dr. Walker’s high quality body sculpting results, see his before and after pictures.

Liposuction is performed to sculpt the body for more desirable contours while removing excess fat. Dr. Walker can remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms and under the chin. He uses only liposuction techniques proven safe and effective including tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction. It is important to note that liposuction surgery is not a means of weight loss. Rather it is a method to remove stubborn fat to create a more perfectly contoured body – often accompanying a tummy tuck or body lift surgery. Dr. Walker’s training in the United States, Europe, and South Africa, makes him pay careful attention to Ethnic shape diversity in order to give patients the personalized results they want.

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is the most common plastic surgery procedure for flattening the stomach. Women who have stretched muscles and skin after pregnancy, and men and women who experienced massive weight loss (especially after gastric bypass and other weight loss surgeries), are good candidates for a tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck removes excess skin from the middle and lower abdomen and tightens the abdominal wall. The tummy tuck can also be easily performed within 2 – 3 hours, depending on the size of the patient, and other areas of fat that can be removed and transferred at he same time. There are many different types of tummytuck, including the mini tummy tuckpanniculectomylipoabdominoplasty, and others. Dr. Walker customizes his surgical approach for every tummy tuck to best fit each patient’s size, shape,  and surgical goals.

Face Lift

A full or mini face lift will not stop aging, but can rejuvenate, and refresh your look, creating a more youthful appearance and reducing the most visible signs of aging by removing, or replacing fat, and tightening skin and muscles.

Dr. Walker specialises in the most advanced techniques to allow for cosmetic results that look healthy and natural, not “wind-tunneled” or overstretched. Face lift techniques include: liquid face lifts (fat transfer, with stem cell technology available ), minimally invasive face lift under full, or local anesthetic, mid-face lifts, Mini or full face lifts and deep plane facelifts. Also fractionated laser resurfacing, radiofrequency skin and face tightening (for those not ready for, or too young for a full or mini-facelift) as well as care for acne, and other scarring.

Dr. Walker’s training in South Africa has given him particular expertise in treating African and African-American skin. In particular, he has extensive experience treating Keloids, and hypertrophic, or thickened scars.

Breast surgery

Breast surgery is available to increase or decrease breast size, or to alter breast shape, height, and nipple protrusion. Breast surgery procedures include breast augmentation (breast implants), breast lift, fat transfer to the breasts, breast reduction, nipple reconstruction, breast reconstruction, and reshaping breasts after pregnancies and breastfeeding for a more flattering shape. For examples of Dr. Walker’s high quality breast surgery results see his before and after photos.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation uses FDA approved silicone or saline breast implants to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. Breast Augmentation is performed by placing breast implants under the muscle through a small incision made through the areola, through the armpit, under the fold of the breast or through the belly button (TUBA).

An expert in the field, Dr Walker uses the most advanced breast augmentation techniques, including fat transfer to the breasts (with or without stem cells), to create breasts that looks and feel natural. Dr Walker also specializes in revision breast implant surgery, removing old implants, adding bigger or smaller implants, reshaping and optimizing the previous surgery results to maximize cleavage, coverage, and position of the implants. Breast augmentation is sometimes performed alongside a breast lift to achieve the best results.

Breast lift (Mastopexy)

breast lift (breast mastopexy) is a surgical procedure performed to lift and reshape sagging breasts.

After pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss (or even just due to time and gravity), breasts begin to sag and the areola enlargens and points downward, or is positioned at the bottom, rather than in the middle of the breast. Breast lift surgery lifts and reshapes the breasts by removing excess skin and improving the placement of the areola. In some cases this can make the breasts appear smaller so often time a breast lift is often accompanied by breast augmentation to restore or add fullness. One size definitely does not fit all with breast lift procedures. Breast lift techniques vary based upon the degree of sagging that the breast has. There are also several different types of breast lift procedures, and one size definitely does not fit all. A personal consultation is important to evaluate which kind of breast lift is best for you.

Dr Walker is well versed in all the latest advances in breast lift surgeries, with further qualification as a wound healing expert. As a result he is able to take extra care to minimize scarring, and to help scars fade after surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat transfer to the buttocks)

Fat transfer to the buttocks, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, is Dr Walker’s specialty procedure. A form of fat grafting, the Brazilian Butt Lift enhances flat or poorly-shaped buttocks to give each patient a more pleasing figure. Excess fat is removed through gentle liposuction, from a donor site such as the abdomen, hips or thighs and is strategically injected into the layers of the buttocks using a precise method to ensure natural looking results. Dr Walker specializes in large volume fat transfers to the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is the often the preferred method for buttock augmentation by plastic surgeons because the technique utilizes the patient’s own fat and has a significantly reduced complication rate compared to butt implants. For examples of Dr. Walker’s high quality body Brazilian Butt Lift results, see his before and after pictures.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery is a relatively minor plastic surgery procedure with a big impact. Blepharoplasty can remove that “tired’, or “heavy” look from bags and wrinkles around the eyes with minimal scarring. Upper eyelid surgery addresses concerns with excess skin and wrinkles, while lower eyelid surgery reduces puffiness and eyelid bags. Both types of eyelid surgery leave no visible scars. Blepharoplasty surgery leaves patients looking younger and more rested. Eyelid surgery is often performed alongside a face lift or brow lift to enhance plastic surgery results.
