"Still me, only younger! My main fear when I considered a lower facelift was not looking like myself after surgery. But while the surgery did change how I looked in terms of how old I looked, I was tremendously happy with how natural and refreshed my face looked. My skin is more taught, the sagginess in my neck is gone and the jowls are gone. Dr. Rosenbaum far exceeded my expectations in skill and professionalism. I am very happy with the results. I look 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum!"- G. / Healthgrades / Feb 07, 2019

"(Double mastectomy reconstruction)Dr. Rosenbaum is an outstanding doctor and brilliant surgeon! My medical situation was complicated, resulting in a double mastectomy performed a year apart. The outcome of my final breast implant surgery is absolutely ASTONISHING!!! My new breasts are perfectly symmetrical, look very real and so natural, that I can hardly believe it myself. I highly recommend Dr. Rosenbaum and consider him the BEST plastic surgeon in Miami, if not the entire world!!!"- W.H. / Healthgrades / Jan 15, 2019

Plastic surgery to remove loose skin is usually performed as an inpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. It is performed using general anesthesia and on average takes about 3 – 7 hours, depending on the combination of procedures in your treatment plan. Some liposuction is usually integrated during surgery to remove pockets of fat, followed by the surgical removal of skin. This surgery does make larger incisions than most other cosmetic surgeries, so you will have scarring. During your surgery, every attempt is made by Dr. Rosenbaum to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Rosenbaum or a member of his team will give you detailed post-surgical instructions so your incisions heal to flat, thin scars that blend as much as possible into your normal skin.
What to Expect
Once released from our care, it is important to allow a week or two to recover at home. Tubes may be implanted near the incision sites to help control drainage and medical garments should be worn to assist with swelling. For the average person, it takes roughly 2 – 4 weeks until you can go back to normal activities but it could take longer. Dr. Rosenbaum finds that most of his patients are back to normal around 4 – 6 months. Skin removal surgery can be life changing for patients with amazing results that you can see right away.
