    Customizing Mommy Makeovers with Breast and Body Contouring Procedures

    The popular term, “mommy makeover,” describes the combination of cosmetic surgery procedures to help women restore their pre-baby bodies. For mommy makeover, many mothers choose procedures that include breast surgery, liposuction, and/or a tummy tuck. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman specializes in breast and body contouring procedures and often customizes mommy makeover treatments for patients looking to reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    mommy makeover surgery in atlanta gaMommy makeovers typically include a breast procedure such as a breast lift or breast augmentation to address sagging breasts or breasts that have lost volume. Since the abdominal area is commonly affected by pregnancy, Dr. Whiteman also performs body contouring procedures to sculpt the area where excess skin develops from the stomach stretching. Tummy tuck surgery addresses excess skin and fat while re-tightening weakened abdominal muscles for a firmer, more contoured result. For isolated areas of stubborn fat, Liposuction can additionally sculpt the midsection and other areas such as the thighs, hips, and arms.

    While mommy makeover surgery is a comprehensive combination procedure, this treatment provides complete rejuvenation while reducing overall costs and complication risks. Additionally, these procedures minimize the total amount of downtime. Dr. Whiteman recommends for female patients to wait until after they are finished having children before considering mommy makeover as additional pregnancies can affect results.

    If you are interested in a breast or body contouring procedure or mommy makeover surgery, contact us today to schedule a consultation. Also, be sure to connect with Dr. Whiteman on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for the latest plastic surgery news.

    Health and Wellness: Maintaining Facial Plastic Surgery Results

    In previous health and wellness blogs, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman often discusses healthy eating habits and regular exercise routines for his body contouring patients. However, with over 20 years of experience performing procedures for all areas of the body including the face and breasts, he reminds patients that healthy lifestyles are also imperative to maintain facial cosmetic surgery results. A healthy lifestyle is necessary for overall health, and it is essential to prolong long-lasting results after plastic surgery.

    atlanta plastic surgeonDiet and exercise are still important for patients who undergo facial plastic surgery, but patients should also adopt a skincare regimen and avoid harmful habits such as smoking and excessive sunbathing. Many patients pursue procedures such as facelift and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to reduce the signs of aging. Proper skincare can improve facial surface appearance and texture as well as assist with healing and scarring from surgery. Patients should avoid smoking and sunbathing as they dehydrate skin and cause skin to be more damage-prone.

    While surgery does not completely stop the aging process, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation and skincare products can keep skin healthy and vibrant. Dr. Whiteman provides non-invasive treatments such as Botox® and facial fillers to further reduce wrinkles and fine lines. He also offers skincare products at Southern Plastic Surgery, P.C. and skin treatments such as peels and fractionated laser resurfacing at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center.
