"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I was referred to Dr. Foley through a friend for removal of basal cell cancer on my upper lip. Originally, I was scheduled for MOHS through dermatology at a local medical teaching facility. The EOB - for the teaching facility - for the biopsy and initial visit showed very high charges, including a "facility fee" of over $700. I was informed that I had to wait almost five months for the procedure. That's when I started looking for alternatives. Thankfully, I found Dr. Foley. Cancer removed, clean edges, no scar and the procedure was done the week I called for an appointment. The cost? A small fraction of what is charged at the medical teaching facility. Did I mention the staff? Very professional and friendly. Lesson learned - getting the best health care solution does not have to be expensive."- M.S. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2020

Best Candidates for After Weight Loss Surgery
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 with After Weight Loss Surgery
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.
After Weight Loss Surgery Other Considerations
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.

Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you.
