"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

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
You are an ideal candidate for scar revision surgery if you:
- Have an unwanted scar from a traumatic accident
- Have undergone a surgery that left behind a scar
- Feel self-conscious about your scar
- Do not have acne or any other skin disease around the scar
- Do not smoke and are in good health
What To Expect
Prior to the procedure, you will undergo a one-on-one consultation with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment. During this time, your doctor will also create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all your cosmetic goals and concerns. There are several techniques used for scar revision and typically, treatment plans utilize a combination of the following methods:
- Surface Treatments are used to reduce the physical appearance of scaring, which helps to reduce pigment discoloration and smooth rough skin texture. Treatments vary from chemical peels, light therapy, and skin bleaching.
- Skin Grafting is a more advanced method that is commonly used for more severe scarring. Typically, skin tissue is taken from the thigh and applied to the scarred region to diminish its appearance.
- Injectable Treatments are frequently used for scars that have a sunken or intended appearance. This method produces long-lasting results but will need to be repeated to maintain a smooth appearance.
- Topical Treatments are used to treat minor surface scars and commonly include gels, lotions, and compression tapes.
Since treatment is dependent on the size, shape, and severity of the scarring, results and recovery will vary. However, it is common for patients to experience swelling or minor discomfort for the first few weeks following surgery. During this time, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun and from physical activities that may potentially cause irritation to the wound site. It’s also important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Optimal results may take 6 – 12 months to become visible, but will produce long-lasting outcomes.
