"Barbara SorianoWhen I lost over 30 lbs a couple years ago, I was not happy with the way my neck and my breast looked. I started researching plastic surgeons that could help me with a neck and breast lift. I consulted a few in New York and New Jersey, but wasn’t satisfied with what they were offering. Then, after taking my cousin’s advice, I started to look for a doctor in Miami. That’s how I came across Dr. Rosenbaum I read all his credentials and reviews, and I wrote an email to his staff. From the first response I got from Gladys, I felt confident that I had found the place to have my surgery. Not long after, I flew to Miami to meet Dr. Rosenbaum. Everything was great— his office, his staff ,the way he spent time with me explaining the surgery and recuperation, the fact that he does his surgeries in Mt Sinai OR and you stay overnight. Not to mention, the personalized care and attention. I was sure I had found the doctor I was looking for. Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, professional, experienced, and a lovely person. I must also praise his staff. Nora was upfront about all costs and explained the financial aspects of the procedure in a simple, honest way. Yoli, his nurse, is lovely, and very professional , while Gladys was there for me every time I needed her before and after my procedure. I am so glad I flew from New York to Miami to have my 2 procedures with Dr. Rosenbaum, and could not be happier with the results! He’s changed my life and confidence.!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 05, 2019

"Dr Rosenbaum changed my life for the best. I got exactly what I wished for and I couldn’t be more pleased with my amazing breast reduction results. From myfirst consultation, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious that he’s an expert in breast surgery from his detailed explanation of the procedure. He made me feel comfortable from the start of my journey. The staff was also incredible, Yoli was always available to answer any post of questions."- C.N. / Google / May 26, 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.
