Most of our patients have reported immeasurable boosts to their self-confidence after undergoing body lift surgery. Mothers can restore their bodies to pre-pregnancy form. People who recently lost a lot of weight can have the excess skin removed and muscles tightened. You’ll be able to fit into clothes you want to wear, and you will have increased confidence in social settings. Dr. Fodero can tone and shape the contours of your body in a way that meets your aesthetic needs.


Although rare, there are risks associated with body lift surgery, as with any surgical procedure. Dr. Fodero takes great care in reducing any risks that may exist during and after the procedure. These risks can include fluid building under the skin and infection. There is some scarring involved, but Dr. Fodero places incisions in areas that will be most discreet when performing body lift.


There are two main types of body lift procedures. A lower body lift reshapes the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and small of the back. An upper body lift contours the breasts, upper back, and, if desired, the arms. Both procedures can be combined in a full body lift. A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Fodero will help you determine the treatment plan is best for you.

The procedure itself is performed under general anesthesia and usually requires between three and eight hours, depending on the extent of work that is done. After making a discreet incision, Dr. Fodero can remove excess fat tissue and skin and tighten the underlying muscles for a more toned look. The incisions are then closed. Our team helps our patients experience a recovery process with minimum discomfort.
