"I had a neck lift, lower facelift and an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) Dec 2019 by Doctor Rosenbaum. If I would have known how little pain and downtime involved with this surgery I would have done this 5 years ago. I was out to dinner with friends within 4 days! I love the results and I already have 2 friends signed up to do their facelift. My husband tells me how beautiful I am everyday and friends tell me how young I look (15 years younger) or the people that don’t know keep asking what skin care products are you using? I did not even want to look at myself in the mirror and now I welcome the mirror. Smile lines gone, sagging Jowls gone and my Neck! I never thought it was possible to have a neck with no wrinkles. I’m am so pleased not only with the results but the interaction throughout the whole process with Doctor Rosenbaum. I interviewed plastic surgeons in Boca Raton that friends told me about and I was so uncomfortable so I put it off (years passed and more and more Botox). Then a lightbulb went off and I remembered Doctor Rosenbaum and within that moment I knew I was going to have him perform my facelift surgery. When I went into his office to talk to him I was at ease (still a little nervous) but I trusted him that he had my best interest at heart and he understood exactly what I wanted. So if I can say two things Doctor Rosenbaum is your doctor for your facelift and if you are nervous don’t wait. Also his staff Yoli and Noora were so wonderful I can’t say enough good things."- K.S. / Google / Jan 09, 2020
"I couldn’t be happier with the care, service and outcome I received from Dr. Rosenbaum and his entire staff. Time and nursing several babies took its toll and I decided to get a few consults for a breast lift. Dr. Rosenbaum made me feel extremely comfortable. He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed, pressured to make a decision, or pushed to do anything. Dr. Rosenbaum listened to my concerns and helped me decide the best course for me. I felt well prepared for what to expect after surgery. I went home the same day and had no pain from the breast lift. The care and attentiveness provided by Dr. Rosenbaum made me certain I had made the right choice in choosing him as my surgeon. Special mention for Nora who helped coordinate appointments and hospital scheduling, and Yoli who made herself available for anything and everything, and always with a warm smile. The entire staff was warm, professional and as helpful as could be. I couldn’t be more pleased for having this cosmetic procedure done by Dr. Rosenbaum. Highly recommend!"- M.R. / Google / Dec 19, 2019

"I had a great experience with Dr. Gary R. He is an excellent surgeon and is a perfectionist. I am really amazed with the results of my breast reduction. He exceeded my expectations! His staff was also very caring and very willing to help. Without a doubt I recommend Dr. Gary for anyone who is looking to get breast surgery."- F.A. / Google / Dec 13, 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.
