Lynn Brandom, our nurse and patient care coordinator, is the first person you will speak with about body contouring after massive weight loss at our Florham Park, New Jersey office. Lynn truly understands and relates to our post-weight loss patients because, at one point in her life, Lynn weighed 220 pounds. After achieving a massive weight loss of 110 pounds, Lynn underwent many of the post-weight loss body contouring procedures that you will discuss with Dr. Fodero at your initial consultation.
In addition to Lynn, patient coordinator James Pullara has also undergone gastric bypass and body lift surgery along with other procedures performed by Dr. Fodero.
Both Lynn and Jim are qualified to answer your questions about the procedures and will provide you with invaluable support while you are under the care of Dr. Fodero.

Surgical treatments that lift and remove excess skin while re-sculpting and removing residual fat deposits allow for the most dramatic cosmetic improvements in post-massive weight loss patients. Due to the skin laxity issues these patience face, liposuction alone will not provide ideal results; however, the advanced liposuction techniques offered at our practice are often utilized during lift procedures to perfect and refine body contours. Read on for more information about the localized lift procedures we offer.
In lower body lift surgery, also called body lift, circumferential belt lipectomy, and thighplasty, Dr. Fodero removes excess skin and fat from the torso, tightens the abdominal muscles, and lifts and tightens droopy buttocks, thighs, and hips. For many patients that have lost over a hundred pounds, lower body lift surgery at our Florham Park, New Jersey practice is the best procedure to lift and recontour the midsection and lower body with a single operation. If needed, liposuction can be used to smooth and refine areas with residual fat deposits, further improving the overall results of the lift.
In general, Dr. Fodero does not combine procedures when performing lower body lift surgery. Because they have performed a large number lower body lift surgeries, Dr. Fodero and his team have had the opportunity to perfect their technique at all stages, which allows them to safely and effectively achieve superior results. Dr. Fodero takes meticulous care of his lower body lift surgery patients before, during, and after the surgery to minimize complications, shorten recovery, and make their overall experience as pleasant as possible. Contact Dr. Joseph Fodero today for more information about lower body lift surgery or call our office at 973-295-6565 to schedule your complimentary post-weight loss consultation.
During arm lift, or brachioplasty, Dr. Fodero re-sculpts the arms by removing drooping excess skin and residual fat from the arms and tightening the skin of the upper arms. Liposuction techniques may be used to further recontour the arms to give them a smoother, more toned appearance. In severe cases, excess skin from the arms, axilla (the under arm or “armpit “) and outer chest is also removed and tightened in what Dr. Fodero terms “extended brachioplasty. ” This procedure allows for more comprehensive contouring to restore a natural looking appearance to the arms after dramatic weight loss. Contact us today with any questions that you have about arm lift or schedule your complimentary consultation with Dr. Fodero by calling our office directly at 973-295-6565.
Some body contouring after massive weight loss patients do not require full lower body lift surgery and are better served with a traditional tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). During tummy tuck, Dr. Fodero removes excess abdominal skin, tightens the abdominal muscles, and draws the remaining skin taut across the upper and lower abdomen to give patients a smooth, slender waistline. Unlike lower body lift, tummy tuck does not improve the appearance of the lower back, hips, buttock, and thighs; however, because it is less invasive than a body lift, abdominoplasty can safely be performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, such as arm lift or breast surgery. Fill in our contact form for more information about tummy tuck or call our office to schedule your complimentary post-weight loss cosmetic consultation with Dr. Fodero.
After massive weight loss, some women are left with sagging breasts due to a dramatic loss of breast volume and an overabundance of excess skin. Breast lift, also called mastopexy, can treat this problem by elevating the position of the breasts, removing excess skin, and reshaping the breast to restore firmness and proper shape. If there is not enough tissue left in the breast or if the patient desires enhanced breast fullness, placement of a breast implant (breast augmentation) plus breast lift, called augmentation mastopexy, provides outstanding results. Dr. Fodero can also reduce the size of the areola to correct the appearance of the nipple area. Contact Dr. Joseph Fodero today for further information about breast lift and breast augmentation after dramatic weight loss.

Dr. Fodero’s goal is to provide you with a firm, attractive body through safe surgery. Several of the cosmetic procedures mentioned can safely be performed during a single operation, allowing maximum improvement within a single recovery period. Some patients will require more than one operation to safely rejuvenate the body, such as a lower body lift surgery followed by breast and arm surgery. During your body contouring after massive weight loss consultation at our Florham Park, New Jersey office, Dr. Fodero will determine which surgical approach will most effectively allow him to re-sculpt your body after massive weight loss.
