Body Procedures

Dr. Patronella has spent more than 20 years studying what makes our bodies beautiful and has dedicated himself to understanding the diverse demands of his patients. Beyond his intuitive ability to master multiple body procedures, his compassion for his patient’s cosmetic goals makes the imaginable turn tangible.

Below is a list of body procedure options to get you one step closer to the 100 percent patient satisfaction that Dr. Patronella champions.

  • True Form Tummy Tuck®

    True Form Tummy Tuck®

    True Form Tummy Tuck® is a technique specially designed to satisfy the cosmetic demands that a traditional tummy tuck can not adequately meet. The True Form Tummy Tuck® defines authentic characteristics by creating subtle contours and natural-looking body lines. Dr. Patronella goes the extra length to carefully accentuate various abdominal angles for a more graceful and natural result than what the average tummy tuck can achieve.

    Dr. Patronella pays close attention to the importance of incision lines to create a more natural progression across the lower abdomen and pubic areas. A lower abdominal incision is thoughtfully placed on the bikini line for convenient concealment under swimsuits or underwear. Additionally, when desirable, Dr. Patronella combines his True Form Tummy Tuck® with liposuction to slim the waistline and other adjacent areas to blend their appearance with the rejuvenated abdomen.

  • True Form Body Contouring®

    True Form Body Contouring®

    True Form Body Contouring® offers patients a combination of procedures that work in tandem to make the ideal aesthetics come alive within the natural lines, curves, and contours of your appearance. Dr. Patronella strives to use this unique approach to achieve results that look natural, not surgical. True Form Body Contouring® addresses the upper and lower body as one harmonious silhouette instead of as two separate entities.

    True Form Body Contouring® also takes into account the aesthetic ideals for feminine and masculine physiques. Through a combination of techniques, including liposuction of excess fat, removal of loose skin, skin lifting, and fat grafting, Dr. Patronella reshapes the body to craft a more sensual you.

  • Mommy Makeover

    Mommy Makeover

    Mommy Makeover is a transformative choice for women looking to reverse the dramatic physical changes that can often arise from pregnancy and childbirth. Enjoy your feminine beauty once again with Dr. Patronella’s restorative and beautifying approaches for your breasts and body.

    Dr. Patronella’s signature True Form Tummy Tuck® is designed to sculpt a beautiful abdomen and the elegant nuances which accentuate it. By tightening the abdominal muscle wall, removing lax skin and excess fat, and employing advanced suturing techniques, he gets rid of a stubborn tummy pooch to give you a svelte abdomen.

    Dr. Patronella frequently combines the True Form Tummy Tuck® with liposuction to create a more proportionate silhouette and the hourglass shape many women desire. By suctioning fat from the waist and other regions which may be bulkier than desired, Dr. Patronella creates smooth transitions between adjacent regions for more authentic-looking results.

    Breast enhancement techniques fight the effects of aging, gravity, and the fluctuation in the volume that may have been caused by weight changes, milk production and breastfeeding. Whether you desire added volume, lift, or a reduction in size, Dr. Patronella customizes the breast surgery procedure to fit your goals and unique anatomy.

    Mommy Makeover surgery is one of the most popular procedure combinations Dr. Patronella performs. The results are frequently transformative both physically and psychologically for his patients, restoring a woman’s body and enhancing her emotional well-being.

  • Liposuction


    Liposuction eliminates fatty deposits from problem areas, such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, to reveal more ideal proportions. Dr. Patronella’s years of skillful experience allow liposuction to be applied in less common areas like the neck, knees, and ankles. This can help patients achieve sleeker silhouettes by removing double chins, getting rid of ‘cankles,’ or slimming the arms.

    Liposuction is a shape-enhancing tool rather than a weight-loss procedure, although you may experience some weight loss as a result of fat removal from areas in which it has been resistant to reduction.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift

    Brazilian Butt Lift

    A Brazilian Butt Lift provides volume, curvaceousness, and eye-catching angles for women looking for authentic enhancements to their backside. Dr. Patronella applies his mastery and philosophical approach to the Brazillian Butt Lift by removing unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and placing this fat in the buttocks to highlight its size, shape, and projection.

  • Arm Lift

    Arm Lift

    Arm lift surgery (or brachioplasty) removes excess skin and tissue of the upper arm for a more sculpted and youthful contour. Arm lift surgery allows the underlying muscles to be more exposed and defined while smoothing and tightening the arms. Dr. Patronella’s arm lift approach may be combined with liposuction to trim fat and counteract the signs of aging and weight fluctuation.

  • Body Lift

    Body Lift

    Body lift surgery designed by Dr. Patronella can accurately sculpt your body’s ideal contour, awarding you with tighter skin, a more toned profile, and beaming self-confidence. With a lower body or buttock lift procedure, Dr. Patronella tightens the skin and deep tissues of the waist, hips, outer thighs, and buttocks to restore their tone and shapeliness. This is typically combined with a True Form Tummy Tuck® to create a balanced, smooth lower body.

  • Post Weight Loss

    Post Weight Loss

    Depending on the number of areas you would like to address, Dr. Patronella offers an array of body contouring procedures to make the unflattering aftereffects of dramatic weight loss vanish. After determining the most effective procedure/s for your post weight loss surgery, Dr. Patronella can get to work restoring firmness, tone, and elasticity to the body.
