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.
Patients with minor skin concerns and moderate to minimal wrinkling can benefit from non-surgical treatments. 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.
