"All I can say is WOW-Dr. Lawrence is my HERO! I am 44 years old and I am 7 days post op from a lower face and neck lift. I look amazing! My neck and jowls have bothered me since my 20s. I am so glad that I trusted Dr. Lawrence with my procedure. She is a rockstar surgeon. I had very little swelling and almost no bruising. My incisions are well hidden and I look incredible. I haven’t smiled like this in a long time. My husband and I looked at my pre-op photos today compared to the new me and he said... "Wow- you looked so unhappy in these and now you have a different glow to you!" From the consult to the surgery, Dr. Lawrence and her staff have gone above and beyond for me. They are so kind and have the best bedside manner. I had a mild freak out after surgery with the head wrap and Dr. Lawrence was happy to redo it for me (several times) until I felt comfortable. She totally put me at ease. Thank you Dr. Lawrence, Maryann, Aubrey and the entire staff. You have made me feel like myself again. I can’t thank you enough!"- M.B. / Yelp / Nov 02, 2023
"Everyone was very kind and helpful. It is a very pleasant office atmosphere."- D.E. / Yelp / May 05, 2023
"I’ve had several procedures at this office, and I’ve been very happy at the outcomes for all of them, One of the procedures was the PDO facelift. I had sagging jowls and a small chin that made them look even worse. I am scared of surgery, so I thought I’d look into the PDO. I didn’t look normal for about 3 weeks, which, for some reason, I wasn’t expecting. One side of my face was swollen and the other wasn’t - I thought maybe they’d messed up. I will say that Dr. Lawrence was very supportive, even offering to do the procedure again or something else to fix it if it remained a problem. The swelling finally went down, but then I didn’t see very much difference for the next several months. However, it’s now been a year, and the collagen production has kicked in. I now look 10 years younger than my age, did not pay a fortune, and did not have to take the risk that comes with any surgery.I see that the person I had for this (Angela) is no longer at the office,, but I wanted to explain my experience for people who might be considering this procedure. I am going to do it again in a few years."- S.H. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2023

The ideal candidates for after weight loss surgery are those who have loose skin due to losing a significant amount of weight. Most often, this issue is visible early on as the body gets smaller. If you are challenged by loose skin, after weight loss surgery at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery can eliminate the issue, and secure the tissue and remaining skin for a healthier, tighter look. It is important patients are close to their goal weight before considering skin removal surgery.
Plastic surgery to remove loose skin is almost always considered a major treatment. It is performed using general anesthesia and on average, takes about 3 – 7 hours, depending upon the combination of procedures combined. Usually, an overnight stay is necessary. A form of liposuction is usually integrated during surgery to remove isolated fat pockets, followed by the surgical removal of skin. Surgical skin removal does make larger incisions than most other cosmetic surgeries so varying degrees of scars will be associated with this treatment. During surgery, every attempt is made by Dr. Lawrence to make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Lawrence or a member of her team will give you in-depth scar healing instructions for an effective outcome.
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 limit swelling. For the average person, it takes roughly 2 – 4 weeks until you can go back to everyday activities, but depending on the level of invasiveness, it could take longer. Dr. Lawrence finds that most of her patients are back to normal around 4 – 6 months. Skin removal surgery can be life-changing for patients with amazing results that are immediate. Finally, you will feel confident and wear the clothes you want, and partake in activities without excess skin keeping you from the things you love to do.
