"I have had two procedures performed by Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery. In both cases, there was a simple, yet articulate explanation of the procedure as well as an opportunity to ask questions afterward. Very clean, very efficient and the entire staff was welcoming and professional."- M.M. / Google / Jan 12, 2024
"I used Dr. Foley for a breast reduction and a tummy tuck and let me tell you, I am in love with my body and it’s only been 3 weeks and I haven’t seen the final results yet. I have always been heavy chested growing up and after having 3 babies, I’ve had that mommy pouch I could not get rid of. I can can definitely say that this is the most I have felt comfortable and confident in myself thanks to Dr.Foley. Now onto his staff, I can’t say anything bad about them. As soon as you walk in they have the biggest smiles on their faces and take you back into the rooms right away. They are always there to help and are so kind and pleasant to get along with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get something done."- A.L. / Google / Jan 11, 2024
"I was referred to Dr. Foley by my Dermatologist to remove a lump in a sensitive area of my neck. Dr. Foley explained everything in detail, answered all of my questions, and made me feel at ease. My surgery went well and I highly recommend him."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jan 07, 2024
"I came to Dr Foley after several failed reconstruction surgeries after a bilateral mastectomy. I was devastated & in pain. From the time I entered his office, I was put at ease & knew I was in good hands. It was the best office & surgical experience I’ve ever had. Best of all, I look and feel like myself again. His expertise has restored me…. I’m one very pleased and grateful patient!!!"- K.M. / Google / Jan 04, 2024
"Dr. Foley treated me for a skin cancer removal and he was great! I had previously gone to 2 other surgeons for other skin cancer procedures and they were terrible compared to him. He was kind, companionate, very knowledgeable and patient. The entire staff was very nice and efficient. They were very clean, quick to get in and Dr. Foley called me himself with the pathology results - which I feel says a lot! He even had me come in when I had questions. I would highly recommend him to everyone!"- K.H. / Google / Dec 14, 2023
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.
