Scottsdale and Gilbert surgeon Dr. Jude LaBarbera offers a wide range of body procedures including mommy makeover, tummy tuck, liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, body lift, arm lift, thigh lift, Brazilian butt lift, and more. These procedures are designed to shape all parts of the body, from the breasts to the tummy, arms and the buttocks. Exercise and dieting can help you gain the body shape that you desire. However, for some patients, dieting and exercise alone don’t produce the desired bodily results. Dr. Jude LaBarbera performs body cosmetic procedures to help his patients remodel any aspect of their body and invigorate their appearance so they can feel more confident than ever.


This plastic procedure reshapes and slims the body by extracting excess fat from the arms, hips, thighs, abdomen, back, and other areas. Liposuction is a great procedure choice for patients who are looking for a more proportional, shapely and firmed body contour. A liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. How long the procedure takes to complete will vary depending on the amount of excess fat that needs to be removed. It may be carried out as a standalone procedure, or combined with other procedures to achieve the patient’s desired results. Patients are able to see the full results of this procedure within a few months.



A mommy makeover is a combination of personalized procedures that will reverse the changes caused by pregnancy, and restore your youthful curves and figures. This procedure is carried out at Dr. LaBarbera’s ultra-modern operating room under general anesthesia. The entire procedure may take 3 hours or more to complete. Because mommy makeover is an invasive surgery involving a large area of the body, overnight stay is required at the facility for post-surgery monitoring. The recovery duration will vary depending on the patient and the extensiveness of the surgery. Patients are advised to keep off heavy lifting and strenuous activities for 6-8 weeks after surgery.



Tummy tuck plastic surgery helps men and women who have a loose, sagging belly achieve a flat, well-toned abdominal profile. This is usually an outpatient procedure that’s carried out under general anesthesia. In some complex cases, overnight stay at the LaBarbera clinic may be required. Patients will be given pain medication and issued a compression garment for added protection after surgery. Most of Dr. LaBarbera’s tummy tuck patients are back up within 6 weeks.



A thigh lift plastic procedure reshapes the thighs by removing excess tissue and skin, resulting in an overall smoother skin, and contoured lower body. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 2 hours to complete. A thigh lift is typically an outpatient procedure but in some unique cases patients may be required to stay for the night. Most of Dr. Jude LaBarbera’s thigh lift patients record full recovery within 4-6 weeks.



Buttock enlargement is the ideal procedure for patients who desire a fuller, shapelier butt. This is an outpatient procedure that may be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The surgery takes about 2-4 hours to complete, depending on how much fat grafting needs to be done. Patients are required to not apply weight on the butt area over the first 2-3 weeks after surgery. The full results of the butt lift procedure are evident within 6-8 weeks.



Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure aims to correct hanging, misshaped, and discolored labia minora (the inner vaginal lips). Disproportionately large and deformed labia may cause embarrassment or physical discomfort to women.



For individuals who are self-conscious about wearing sleeveless or short-sleeved tops and dresses, arm lift surgery contours your arms to achieve a smoothed out, tight appearance. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes about 2 hours to complete. Although an arm lift is an outpatient procedure, an overnight stay may be required in some complex cases. Most patients recover within 4-6 weeks.



Body lift procedure removes excess fat, skin, and soft tissue from the flanks, back, and abdomen. This leads to a slimmer, well-toned appearance. Body contouring is performed under general anesthesia, and may involve liposuction. The length of surgery and duration of hospital stay varies depending on how many procedures need to be combined in one setting. Recovery after a body lift is often slow, but the benefits of this procedure far outweigh any challenges.
