About Dr. Joseph Fodero

I’ve been a board-certified plastic surgeon for 22 years. I started with good training in my field at the University of Michigan and have stayed current with techniques and technology ever since. My practice is based on tried-and-true procedures that work, not the next shiny new device or new injectable. I have always been on the cutting edge of my field and maintain an excellent reputation in my community. I do what I know works well. I always ask myself, If I run into a patient somewhere two years post-surgery, are they going to be happy with the work I did? If I can’t answer yes, then I don’t want their money. Right now, I do a lot of facial rejuvenation, including facelifts and eyes. At some point in most people’s lives, they can benefit from that kind of work. People who have lost a lot of weight present challenging cases. Body lifts are extreme plastic surgery. Those patients have typically lost around 100 pounds, with loose skin remaining on their abdomen, waist, and buttocks. My techniques have evolved to do that surgery efficiently, safely, and consistently, creating good results. If you come to me as a patient, you will get complete comprehensive care. I provide a very thorough, honest consultation, and you will be educated on your procedure in a way that is superior to most practices. You will receive meticulous post-op care and the complete support of my entire team and myself.
