Also checkout 

1. -twoway lfit- in official Stata 

2. -modeldiag-, a user-written package
(use -search- to find location) 

With 2., see e.g. -regplot- within -modeldiag-. 

For example, suppose you 

sysuse auto, clear 
gen gpm = 1/mpg
regress gpm weight 

-regplot- works on the last regression-type results. By 
default you get a scatter plot of the response versus 
the (first) predictor named, plus a smooth curve 
of the just fitted relationship.
