Jude LaBarbera, MD Plastic Surgery, is one amongst the highly experienced breast plastic surgeons in Gilbert, Scottsdale, Phoenix and surrounding Arizona areas. Dr. Jude offers breast augmentation, breast lift (mastopexy), breast reconstruction and breast eduction procedures. These cosmetic breast surgeries help create an aesthetically appealing look for women who are self-conscious about their breast size and shape. All breast procedures performed at LaBarbera Plastic Surgery are designed to enhance patients’ self-image by restoring or enhancing the curve, shape, and contour of the female breast form.


Breast augmentation is the perfect way to balance uneven breasts, enhance a small bust, or restore fullness and shapeliness that may have been lost due to weight loss, child-bearing, or aging. Breast implant surgery is an outpatient procedure at Dr. LaBarbera’s in-office operating room under general anesthesia. The recovery duration varies depending on the type of implant and the patient’s healing ability. Most of Dr. LaBarbera’s breast implant patients are back up within 1-4 weeks.



A breast augmentation with lift combines two of the most popular breast enhancement procedures to reshape, add volume, and lift the breasts. This combination surgery is very common with women whose breasts appear deflated or saggy due to pregnancy, aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics. Many women seek this procedure because it provides them with the best results. Breast augmentation with lift is an outpatient procedure that is carried out at Dr. LaBarbera’s offices under general anesthesia. Most patients are able to recover in 8-10 weeks.



While many women love large breasts, these aren’t always a blessing. Overly large breasts can cause physical discomfort and make you self-conscious. Dr. Jude LaBarbera performs breast reduction to help patients alleviate physical discomfort, and/or meet their aesthetic goals. Breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia at Dr. LaBarbera’s modern cosmetic surgery office in Scottsdale and Gilbert, AZ. The procedure takes between 2-4 hours to complete, and most patients recover within 2-5 weeks.



Women who are dissatisfied with the results of a prior breast augmentation can have revision surgery to meet their desired goals. Many patients who have this procedure at the LaBarbera Plastic Surgery are women who are displeased with the cosmetic results of a breast augmentation job, or that experience persistent pain due to prior surgery. Dr. Jude LaBarbera works carefully with each patient to meet the desired outcome hopefully once and for all. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes 2-4 hours to complete. In many cases, patients are sent home on the same day to continue with recovery. The majority of Dr. LaBarbera’s breast revision patients are back up within a week.



Breast reconstruction surgery helps women who have undergone a lumpectomy or mastectomy (to treat cancer) feel and look beautiful again. This procedure may be performed at the same time as the mastectomy, or at later date. During the surgery, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia (induced sleep). Patients may need to stay at the hospital for up to 5 days per procedure for monitoring. The procedure duration and surgery time will vary depending on the extent of the reconstruction.



Gynecomastia is the benign enlargement of breast tissue in men. This condition may be caused by genetics, a certain disease, metabolic disorders, or a natural decrease in testosterone production. It may also be a side effect of medication. In about 25% of gynecomastia cases, the underlying cause is unknown. Dr. Jude LaBarbera performs gynecomastia surgery to help his male patients achieve a firmer, more masculine chest. Gynecomastia surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. The procedure takes 1-2 hours to complete, and most patients are back to work within 2 weeks.



Women may choose to remove or replace breast implants from a prior augmentation surgery due to medical or cosmetic reasons. The patient may have experienced an unforeseen issue with implants such as capsular contracture or rupture, or they may wish to alter the size or shape of their breasts for aesthetic reasons. In most cases, Dr. Jude LaBarbera performs the removal procedure on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The recovery duration is typically 1-4 weeks.



Women may have asymmetrical breasts that are disproportionate. This can be fixed with a variety of methods such as fat grafting, lifting a breast, or inserting an implant.
