  • Can Facial Plastic Surgery Turn Back the Clock on My Appearance?

    One of the main reasons why plastic surgery patients choose facial procedures is to reduce the signs of aging that appear in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. With over 20 years of surgical experience, Dr. David Whiteman understands that facial plastic surgery can significantly rejuvenate a person’s appearance. While these procedures can restore a more youthful appearance, Dr. Whiteman always reminds patients to maintain realistic expectations and understand that plastic surgery does not slow down the body’s natural aging process.

Cosmetic injectables such as Botox® smooth out wrinkles on the forehead and near the eyes. Facial fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks and lips. Since these procedures are non-surgical, patients can benefit from minimal to no downtime and shorter treatment times as injections typically take 10-20 minutes to complete.

    For patients with more noticeable signs of aging such as deeper wrinkles and lines and/or lax skin, Dr. Whiteman performs a variety of facial procedures from rhinoplasty and eyelid lifts to facelift surgery. During a facelift, he removes excess, sagging skin and re-tightens muscle and tissue to smooth wrinkles and refill areas of lost volume. Patients who are only concerned with certain areas can choose mini facelift or brow lift surgery to target isolated areas of concern.

    In addition to facial procedures, Dr. Whiteman performs a variety of plastic surgery procedures for the breasts and body.

    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.
