For a complete tummy tuck, an incision is made along the abdomen above the pubic area, and another is made around the navel. Next, the abdominal skin is separated from the abdominal muscles and folded down. The muscles can then be sutured together to create a tighter, smaller waist. Excess skin a...

Services

Breast Surgery

  • Breast Augmentation

    The complexities of surgery including choice of implant, access incisions, anesthesia, subglandular, submuscular or dual plane implant placement needs to be fully understood by the surgeon performing this operation and is explained in detail by Dr. Fodor to his patients. Based on the preoperative examination, Dr. Fodor will determine and custom tailor the best approach and implant for each patient. In general, the postoperative size and shape is partially dependent on a patient’s body size and configuration. Choosing the appropriate implant size depends upon the size one would like to achieve, one’s own size and shape, and the configuration of the chest wall.
  • Breast Reduction

    Dr. Fodor recommends the procedure to women with excessively large breasts. The operation is designed to reduce the bulk of the tissue and to move the nipple and areola upward to the position it was in before the breast became excessively large and/or pendulous, or to the “ideal” position. The surgery usually involves both lifting and reducing their size. The selection of an appropriate surgical technique for any specific patient depends on a number of individual factors including size, shape, skin thickness, and laxity.
  • Breast Lift

    Complexities of the procedures vary greatly and, in some cases, a conservative approach with staging the surgery is wise. Selecting the best operation is challenging; the quality (thickness) of skin, glandular size, skin envelope to glandular ratio, symmetry and nipple position all play a role. The aging process continues relentlessly. Especially when an implant, which adds to gravity, was also introduced, secondary surgical procedures may be necessary to obtain and maintain in the long term a pleasing result.
  • Liposuction Only Breast Reduction

    No one wants to spend time recovering. Meanwhile we all want to look our best. The objective driving Dr. Peter Fodor’s practice is while paying attention to these general Patients’ desires, is to make them feel confident, sexy and comfortable while appearing natural.
  • Male Breast Reduction

    Gynecomastia a term derived from the Greek words “gyne” (woman) and “mastia” (breast), is indeed a more common condition than generally realized. The presence of gynecomastia in the general male population is estimated by some to be as high as 40 percent in adults and 60 percent in adolescents. In adolescents, excess weight, or “baby fat,” is often accompanied by an enlarged, fatty breast area. In most cases, this disappears in one or two years. In some individuals, however, the breast enlargement persists through adolescence and into adulthood. As this individual enters middle age, the midriff spreads, pads of fat gather at the waist (“love handles”), and additional fatty tissue accumulates at the breast. Between the ages of 50 and 70, therefore, gynecomastia becomes almost universal.

Facial Plastic Surgery

  • Buccal Fat Pad Removal

    This procedure seeks to give the face a more angular and chiseled look by reducing the size of the buccal fat pad normally located in the cheeks. The buccal fat pad, not unlike the appendix or tonsils, has no useful function after infancy.This surgery is recommended primarily for patients with decidedly round, full cheeks and is commonly performed in combination with cheek enhancement.
  • Chin and Cheek Augmentation

    According to Dr. Fodor, a younger face is more triangular in shape with the chin representing the tip of the triangle. With aging, as the malar areas descend, jowling occurs and the facial shape becomes more rectangular. In individuals whose facial contours have changed as a result of advancing age, as well as in individuals who have congenitally flat cheeks areas, malar augmentation can offer significant enhancement of facial aesthetics. Though implants offer the advantage of a permanent structural change, injectables may be a good alternative when a lesser degree of augmentation is sufficient and permanency of the result is not mandatory. In the future, with ongoing evolution of soft tissue fillers, injectable treatments may become an even better option with long lasting results.
  • Lip Augmentation

    While some individuals are born with thinner lips, aging can also cause lips to become thinner and “prune lines” can form. This may make allure of a youthful smile can disappear. In the past, this was irreversible. Today, new procedures have been developed to remedy this situation. Dr. Peter Fodor has been a member of a board of consultants tasked to design and give instructional courses for injectables to the face.
  • Ear Surgery

    Otoplasty is a common procedure used to correct large, uneven and misshapen ears. We know that body image and concerns about one’s appearance are developed as early as 2-3 years of age. When children are perceived to have deformities of the ears, they are often subjected to naïve, but nevertheless, cruel teasing. As a result, children as young as 4-5 years of age are frequently very determined to undergo ear surgery and are typically very cooperative.
  • Rhinoplasty

    Like other cosmetic surgeries, nasal reshaping (rhinoplasty) is a combination of art and science. Because surgery is not an exact science, some of the factors involved in producing the final results are not within the control of the plastic surgeon.
  • Neck Lift

    A neck lift can have a profound effect on appearance. Customizing the surgical approach for each individual is paramount in achieving the most aesthetic results in neck enhancement. Various choices are available, ranging from liposuction (lipoplasty) with or without chin augmentation to much more extensive operations such as a corset platysmaplasty and/or a full Face Lift. The length of recovery and the extent of scarring vary accordingly, and these are points that require thorough discussion between surgeon and patient during the consultation.
  • Shadow Top Border Endoscopic Forehead / Face Lift

    Dr. Fodor pioneered this state-of-the art approach to facial rejuvenation in Beverly Hills, Endoscopy. There is no visible scaring with an Endoscopic forehead lift or mid face as practiced by Dr. Fodor. The short incisions to introduce the Endoscopic instruments are placed behind the hairline and heal with scars that are difficult to detect, even by your hairdresser. Endoscopic procedures are less invasive than their traditional counterparts which allows a faster recovery with less postoperative swelling and bruising.
  • Facelift Surgery

    Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process can make skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. The muscles on the neck can slacken, too, causing you to look years older than you are. A rhytidectomy or facelift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face and neck, creating a more youthful appearance. Fresh, taut skin can make you look decades younger.
  • Short Scar Face Lift

    A “Short Scar” Face Lift is performed where the incision behind the ear is eliminated. In Dr. Fodor’s opinion, it works well for patients on whom the signs of aging have not significantly extended to the neck area.
  • Eyelid Surgery

    The aesthetics of the eyes, other than color, are determined entirely by the bony and soft tissue architecture surrounding them. Variations in the bony skeleton, such as underdeveloped cheek bones, when not recognized in advance of blepharoplasty, can negatively impact the final aesthetic result.

Body Contouring Surgery

  • Arm Lift

    Aesthetic surgical reshaping techniques for the upper arms will depend on individual patient needs and range from liposuction alone to extensive tissue resection. The resulting scars also vary from inconspicuous to significant.
  • Tummy Tuck

    No matter how much they exercise and stick to a healthy diet, some people cannot rid themselves of fat pockets and extra, loose abdominal skin. Multiple pregnancies are also a culprit. Dr. Fodor usually suggests that these patients undergo a tummy tuck also known as an abdominoplasty.
  • Buttock Augmentation

    Full beautiful bottoms are a sign of youth and vitality, and enlargement procedures are becoming increasingly popular. Statistically, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) notes that buttock augmentation took one of the top spots recently for the most significant increases in the number of procedures performed, by a whopping 58 percent!
  • Body Sculpting

    Many individuals predestined by birth will develop isolated, stubborn fat deposits out of proportion to the rest of the body. The Baby Boomer Generation is entering the age of a variety of hormonal changes. These changes result in a tendency to develop undesirable fatty accumulations over the abdomen, waist (“muffin top”), under the waist (“love handles,” “watermelon rolls,” and “hip rolls”) and under the buttocks at the top of the thighs (“banana rolls”) as well as on the inner thighs and inner knees. Women who have always experienced difficulty with “saddle bags” can also notice an increase in the outer thigh area. In addition to the abdomen and hips, men commonly notice an increase in volume of the breasts.
  • Liposuction

    Many patients travel to Los Angeles to take advantage of Dr. Fodor’s expertise in liposuction. He has written extensively on the topic in addition to having developed or helped to develop many of the innovative techniques that are widely used today.
  • Vaser Liposuction

    Ultrasound delivered internally via the solid, grooved probe with the, “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance” or VASER device., is an effective method of pre-treating fatty deposits for lipoplasty or liposuction. VASER, also known as Vaser Assisted Lipoplasty (VAL) is a technology that requires significantly reduced levels of ultrasonic power for fat fragmentation than other, earlier technology, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) devices. UAL devices are very different from VASER technology.
  • VASERsmooth

    This novel technique works through the use of VASERsmooth. VASERsmooth is a specifically designed ultrasound powered instrument that breaks apart fatty tissue. This technique will treat unwanted skin dimpling and contour irregularities.
  • Non Surgical Body Sculpting

    Vaser Shape is a non-surgical procedure that will allow you to smooth, firm and shape your body. Through the use of ultrasonic energy, Vaser Shape reduces unwanted fat bulges and at least temporarily the appearance of cellulite.

Skin and Facial Rejuvenation

  • KYBELLA®

    KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area. It is a non surgical minimally invasive treatment.
  • Dermabrasion

    Dermabrasion is a procedure used to improve the skin’s texture. It is used to smooth fine wrinkles and the uneven surfaces that result from scarring, acne, or similar problems.
  • Fat Transfer

    As we age, gravity repositions fat tissues, causing a decrease in volume in facial features, wrinkles and creases then become more prominent. Based on research, the loss of facial fat is a very significant component of facial aging. Breasts also lose volume and shape, while hips and thigh fat pads swell, along with the abdomen.
  • Fat Injections

    Fat injections involve the injection of one’s own fat– taken from other parts of the body– into the lips or to fill fine lines and wrinkles.
  • BOTOX®

    BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are product names for botulinum toxin which is injected for reduction of facial muscle activity. Botox is often used in combination with tissue fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, to achieve cosmetic enhancement of facial shape and some degree of facial rejuvenation.
  • Chemical Peels

    Light chemical peels that improve skin color, texture and luster are performed by a licensed Esthetician.Deeper chemical peels are performed at by Dr. Fodor with a dilute acid that is generally reserved for wrinkle lines. To begin the procedure, the face is first washed to remove any excess oil.

Testimonials

Exceptional plastic surgeon! Dr. Fodor is a gifted and truly talented plastic surgeon. My daughter and I both had rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Fodor and both of us are extremely happy with our results. Our experience with Dr. Fodor and his staff have been positive from our initial consultation to post surgery bedside manners and follow up appointments. All our questions and concerns were addressed in such a way that made us feel comfortable and we were not nervous about the outcome. Surely, we made the right decision. Our noses both look beautiful, very natural, we can breathe better and the best part is people can’t tell we had rhinoplasties unless we choose to tell them. Thank you Dr. Fodor for your amazing work and for making us look beautiful!

Dr. Fodor’s skill in liposuction procedure and depth of experience is unmatched. I had liposuction with him in 2006 and when I decided it was time to do it again, I did not hesitate to choose him. Luckily he has not retired yet!

Dr. Fodor was an excellent surgeon. Everything from preoperative visits, the procedure and post-operative care was so thorough and meticulous. I experienced so little discomfort post-op, I couldn't believe it! Dr. Fodor also available by phone with questions after the surgery, even over the weekend. I am extremely happy with the outcome of the procedure. It is much better of a result than I expected. We are lucky to have Dr. Fodor available in the Aspen, Colorado community.
