Mommy MAkeover

Dr. LaBarbera may perform a breast procedure (augmentation, lift, or reduction), in conjunction with liposuction and a tummy tuck. The number and type of procedures to be performed as part of the Phoenix mommy makeover are customizable and personalized aimed to deliver the best mommy makeover AZ can provide.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects overly saggy muscles and skin in the tummy area – usually as a result of weight loss or pregnancy. The incision type and surgical technique used is determined by how much excess tissue needs to be removed. After a tummy tuck, many men and women are able to achieve a tighter, firmer, and more aesthetic abdominal profile.


This is a state of the art procedure designed to take excess fat from unwanted areas and use it to augment the buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift is a great choice of procedure for women who desire fuller, more rounded buttocks. Because fat is extracted from other areas of the body during this procedure, many patients additionally benefit from a new, sexy overall body contour.

Body Lift

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.


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.


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.

Arm Lift

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.

Thigh Lift

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.

Rectus diastasis refers to a condition where the abdominal muscles (rectus abdominis) separate or widen out, resulting in a stomach that appears to stick out. During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes a lot of changes to accommodate the developing fetus. In some cases, the abdominal muscles will separate to make room for the new body.
