Body Plastic Surgery
Surgical body contouring procedures can dramatically restore balanced proportions to the body by creating tighter tummies or abdomens, and trimmer, slimmer buttocks, hips, and thighs. Whether your areas of concern are the result of fat accumulation, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, pregnancies, aging, or genetic predispositions, Dr. Joseph DiBello may be able to develop a personalized surgical plan aimed at helping you achieve the smooth, lean body contours you desire.
While our website does not feature before-and-after photos of our patients, you can be assured that you will have the opportunity to view Dr. DiBello’s extensive photo collection of patient’s results during your consultation at our office.

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, tightens muscles and removes excess skin and fat in the abdominal area—leaving patients with flatter, tighter tummies and abdomens. This procedure is especially popular with women who have experienced changes in the appearance of their midsection due to child bearing.
The mini-tummy tuck procedure focuses on improving the appearance of the abdomen below the navel. As with the traditional tummy tuck procedure, excess skin and fat are removed, while stretched abdominal muscles in the region can be tightened.
Liposuction is the art of removing fat from localized areas of the body. This technique is used to contour the legs, buttocks, abdomen, back, arms, face and neck. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with other body procedures to achieve better definition and provide more pleasing contours. While there are many different types of liposuction procedures, Dr. DiBello performs only the safest and most effective liposuction techniques.
Body lift surgery can be a great solution for individuals who experience loose folds of skin around the abdominal area, flanks, back, thighs, and buttocks resulting from massive weight loss. If you have worked hard to lose weight through dieting and exercise or by way of a bariatric surgery procedure, body lift techniques can help reveal the leaner contours of your new figure by removing excess inelastic skin. A body lift can also be suitable for patients who have experienced a significant loss of skin elasticity due to age, pregnancy, or heredity.
The presence of loose skin and fat deposits localized in the upper arm can be effectively addressed with arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty. This procedure can be performed using a variety of techniques with the goal of creating tighter, smoother upper arm contours. For patients who have lost significant amounts of weight, this procedure is frequently performed in combination with other body lift techniques to improve the overall appearance of the physique.
A mommy makeover is a surgical plan that combines multiple procedures to restore smooth, slender, youthful contours following childbearing. Whether one or multiple pregnancies have created the appearance of skin laxity, unwanted areas of fat, drooping breasts, and/or stretched abdominal muscles, a personalized mommy makeover can incorporate various techniques into a single operation (or phased surgeries) to achieve results that resemble one’s pre-baby figure.
