  • Popular Love it or Leave it Dysport Rebate Extended Through September

    In a previous blog, Dr. David Whiteman announced the Dysport® “Love it or Leave it” Challenge – a special rebate encouraging patients to try Dysport® over the longstanding competitor Botox®. After over 90 percent of patients choosing to “Love it” and receive another injection of Dysport®, the makers are extending the special until September 30, 2010.

    The extended special works the same: if you take on the challenge of trying Dysport®, you will receive a $75 rebate on a 300 unit injection. If you “love it” – you will receive another $75 rebate on a second injection of Dysport® (resulting in $150 in savings). If for whatever reason you decide to “leave it”, you can receive a rebate on a second injection of a competition product. More information and rebate form can be found on DysportUSA.com.

    Dr. Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery offers injections of both Dysport® and Botox® if you are interested in taking on the “Love it or Leave it” Challenge. Both products work by relaxing the muscles in the face to smooth out wrinkles and prevent future wrinkles from forming.

    Helping Women Reclaim Their Bodies After Pregnancy with Mommy Makeover Surgery

    As most new parents will attest, having a baby is life changing. As most mothers will also attest, being pregnant and having a baby are also body changing experiences (some of those changes are little less welcome than others.) After listening to the stories of several post maternity patients, Dr. David Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery is now spotlighting his surgical skills with mommy makeover surgery.

    While all mommy makeover surgical plans must be custom tailored to each mother’s concerns and health histories, Dr. David Whiteman’s mommy makeover surgery often consists of tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty), to tighten the abdominal muscle and/or remove skin that is stretched with the baby’s growth, liposuction of small areas of fat, and breast augmentation or breast lift procedures to remedy the effects of breast feeding and to restore mothers’ bodies to their pre-baby appearance.

    As evidenced by his previous blogs, Dr. Whiteman is a major proponent of responsible, health-oriented life changes– not quick fixes. He understands the extreme pressure on new mother’s to instantly bounce back to their pre-baby appearance, but emphasizes the fact that major physical changes take time stating:

    “It takes nine whole months for a baby to fully develop. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect that reversing the effects from those changes could be instantaneous.”

    Also important to note, mommy makeover surgery is only suitable for women who are done having children; as additional pregnancy could reverse surgical results. To schedule a consultation, call Dr. Whiteman’s office or visit his website to develop a plan to get you back to your pre-baby best!
