"I have to admit, I was scared when I found out I had skin cancer on my face. Was I going to look funny? Was I going to be deformed? Dr. Foley did a fantastic job. You can’t even tell that I had anything done. I would definitely recommend him!"- C.W. / Google / Aug 13, 2023
"Initially I was told by a friend that Dr. Foley had an excellent reputation for cosmetic surgery. That was so true as Dr. Foley presents as knowledgable and sincere as he assessed my droopy eyelid issues. He guided me through the process due to having too high blood pressure when we first met. The day of surgery went very smoothly as Dr. Foley explained the procedure and reassured me that it would go well. I have a diagnosis of dry eye and need daily eyedrops - however after the surgery my eyes were fine and I have had no problems. I noticed almost immediately that I could see better than prior to my surgery. The procedure was not difficult and I would do it again as Dr Foley is truly the best"- D.S. / Google / Jul 19, 2023
"I have been getting Botox injections every 3 - 4 months for years and did feel that it was no longer as effective as it once was. I heard a new alternative was Daxxify and that it can last 6 - 9 months, making office visits less frequent. Dr. Foley is one of the only doctors in the area offering this new neurotoxin and did an excellent job sharing the risks and benefits. I did get the injections the same day and noticed two days later I was nearly wrinkle free. I am now two weeks out and there is no movement to the areas, and I am super excited to see if it lasts as long as studies show. Thank you, Dr. Foley, for your excellent customer service!"- J.W. / Google / Jun 22, 2023
"Dr. Folley and his team provide an excellent experience. There is zero pressure to have procedures performed. Dr. Folley has an excellent bedside manner, explains everything in detail, and does fantastic work. Another doctor of mine even switched his wife from another plastic surgery group to Dr. Folley. Don't hesitate if you are thinking of getting a procedure done. You will be in good hands and not regret the results."- J.D. / Google / Jun 04, 2022
"My experience with Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania has been an experience worth bragging about! The front staff is very pleasant kind and always willing to answer all your questions no matter how many you may have! From my very first appointment with Dr. Foley he listened to my concerns and validated all of them. He literally brought tears to my eyes when he agreed that I indeed had Diastasis Recti. He saw what I was seeing after I had been shrugged off and looked at as crazy by other physicians. Dr. Foley is very caring and down to earth. He took his time with me and explained everything with my surgery in great detail. He listened to all my concerns and took them ALL into consideration and took steps to put my mind at ease to make me completely comfortable for my operation. His bedside manner is something you do not see often. I also liked that he focused only on what I wanted fixed and solely that. He did not bring up or pressure me to fix other things with my body. He is an honest caring trustworthy plastic surgeon. He will be my surgeon for any other procedures that I may need or desire in the future. If your looking for a good honest plastic surgeon look no further! I am in love with his work!! He made me look perfect and restored my body and gave me my confidence back!"- H.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2022
After weight loss surgery is ideal for patients who have lost 100 pounds or more (either naturally or through bariatric surgery) and have loose skin in areas like their arms, chest, chin, and stomach. Losing a significant amount of weight is a great accomplishment and yields so many health benefits. However, it may leave you with excess sagging skin that do not reveal your new, well-earned figure. This procedure will tighten and eliminate excess folds of tissue to create an attractive, slim form. Ideal candidates are in good health and are near or at their goal weight.
What To Expect
Since this is a surgical procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia. Various incisions and techniques are used to remove excess skin. For example, a procedure may include liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lift, neck lift, and arm lift surgery. In some cases, Dr. Foley will schedule the procedures to be performed in stages for patient safety. A single surgery can last 5 – 7 hours. Following surgery, you will spend 1 – 2 nights in the hospital for observation. Recovery time can take up to 4 – 6 weeks. However, results will leave you with a slimmer, smoother contour to compliment your new form.
When undergoing after weight loss surgery, it’s important to have realistic expectations. The healing process is extensive and it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain results. You should plan to take time off work and arrange for a caregiver to assist you with everyday tasks until you are properly healed. Strenuous activities should be avoided until your doctor has cleared you. It’s important to follow all precautions and aftercare tips provided by your surgeon following your procedure.
