What you want is _not_ straightforward. I know no easy and also 
general way of omitting a data point from a Stata graph and also 
having it exert some offstage influence on the remainder of the graph. 

In my experience, when people think they want something like 
this using a logarithmic scale for the variable concerned is usually the 
best way forward.
