Plastic Surgery for Men

Women aren’t the only ones who seek elective cosmetic procedures. Recently, the number of male patients opting to undergo both facial and body cosmetic surgery in order to restore their appearance has substantially increased. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the top five male cosmetic procedures performed in 2012 were nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reduction, and facelifts. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman has maintained a thorough knowledge and expertise in utilizing various specialized techniques to produce the most natural-looking results specifically tailored to the male physique.

Typically, male patients seek a more defined nose with a higher bridge while women elect for more subtle results. For other facial procedures such as eyelid surgery and facelifts, Dr. Whiteman integrates the same personalized techniques to enhance dynamic facial features that most men possess.

Though many men typically lead a very active lifestyle in which they’re consistently burning calories, they also have those few “problem areas” that they would like to address as well. To help patients get rid of excess weight that diet and exercise can’t control, Dr. Whiteman performs multiple body contouring procedures including male tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast reduction. For men who suffer from gynecomastia, which is when breast glands rapidly grow to an unusual size, causing overly large breasts, Dr. Whiteman removes excess fat, tissue, and skin and then uses liposuction to produce a flatter chest.

No matter what gender you are, Dr. Whiteman strives to produce the most optimal results as well as meet each patient’s personal needs and goals.

Erase Time with Facelift Surgery

The case remains true that we can’t stop aging, but the signs can certainly be combated. If you’re looking to revive and rejuvenate your appearance, double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Whiteman recommends facelift surgery for patients wanting to fight the effects of aging and keep looking as young as they feel!

facial plastic surgery atlanta ga dr david whitemanThere are multiple factors that can contribute to the aging process including pollutants, sun exposure, and gravity, which all aid in deteriorating the suppleness of our skin. A youthful appearance tends to be a sign of fullness and triangular whereas aging tends to be empty and square.  To turn back the block on your look, Dr. Whiteman offers various facial rejuvenation procedures including a full or mini facelift. For patients who have more noticeable signs of aging such as lax skin, or deep wrinkles and fine lines, Dr. Whiteman performs a full facelift in which excess and sagging skin is removed and the muscle and tissue is re-tightened to refill areas of lost volume and to smooth wrinkles.  A full facelift also restores the neck line, jawline, and removes turkey neck.

Patients who are only concerned with specific and isolated areas of the face may opt for a mini facelift. During a mini facelift, Dr. Whiteman reduces wrinkles and sagging skin by making smaller, hidden incisions without affecting the brow and eye areas. Additionally, a mini facelift can also address jowls on the lower third of the face, including the neck and requires minimal downtime.

Dr. Whiteman likes to remind patients that though these procedures can restore a more youthful appearance, it is important to keep realistic expectations and understand that plastic surgery does not slow down the body’s natural aging process. In addition to surgery, there are also everyday regimens such as exercising, healthy eating, limiting UV exposure and using sunscreen faithfully that can all help aid in prevention.

Heat Things Up this Summer with Dr. Whiteman’s June Featured Procedure

For women who want to adequately fill out their swimsuits, tank tops, or sundresses this summer, double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman performs various breast-related cosmetic procedures to help patients look and feel their best, no matter what they wear! This month, Dr. Whiteman is featured in Best Self Magazine and invites patients to take the first steps towards achieving the look they desire for their breasts.

body contouring atlanta gaDuring an initial consultation, Dr. Whiteman will discuss medical history, goals for a particular breast procedure(s), including different breast enlargement techniques and implant options that showcase the most natural looking results. Dr. Whiteman offers silicone, saline, and gummy bear breast implants for breast augmentation surgery. Determining which implant is right is best done by taking measurements, and trying on various implant sizes to determine the best size and type of breast implant to be used. Breast augmentation is ideal for individuals who may feel insecure about small breasts, have lost firmness due to childbearing, or have lost a large amount of weight.

If you’re looking for a bit of a lift, Dr. Whiteman performs a breast lift, or mastopexy surgery, for patients whose breasts have changed due to the effects of aging, gravity, weight changes, or childbirth. Dr. Whiteman uses multiple techniques when performing a breast lift and it is based on the size and shape of your breasts, the degree of sagging, as well as other contributing factors. When performing the surgery, the position of the breasts are raised and firmness is increased by removing extra skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the contours of the lifted breast. For minor correction to the placement of the breasts, Dr. Whiteman also performs mini breast lift surgery as well.

By combining breast augmentation surgery with a breast lift, patients can see an increase in the volume of their breasts while a lift will provide them a more youthful placement on the body, with the most natural looking results for each unique patient.
