Facial plastic surgery is very demanding; the results should be appreciable yet subtle. Dr. Whiteman strives to provide his patients with a youthful, natural look. He uses a variety of techniques from surgical procedures to cosmetic injections to achieve the results seen in our gallery. Whether you’re looking to our Atlanta, Georgia office for blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), ear surgery, or other minimally invasive procedures; or you’re seeking injectable treatment or other non-ablative, non-surgical treatments, Dr. Whiteman and our staff at Southern Plastic Surgery will strive to give you exactly the results you’re looking for.
At our Atlanta, Georgia office, blepharoplasty—also called eyelid surgery—is one of our most common procedures. From the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the skin simply losing elasticity with the passage of time, the skin around your eyes may begin to sag and droop, giving you a sleepier, less alert appearance. During a visit to our Atlanta office for eyelid surgery, excess fat, skin, and muscle around your eyes is removed, reducing the amount of tissue to “bunch up” around your eyes. Following the procedure, you will appear more alert and awake, though the results will be so subtle that even close friends will most likely not realize that you have had surgery. Our blepharoplasty patients may consider our Eye Package, intended to help maximize the benefit of the surgery.
Otoplasty, more commonly referred to as ear surgery or ear pinning, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head, or to reduce the size of large ears. Your face and ears will appear more balanced, and you may discover increased self-esteem. At his Atlanta , Georgia office, Dr. Whiteman has performed countless ear surgery procedures.
Smoothing the skin above the eyes, a forehead lift (or “browlift,” as it is sometimes known) can remove frown lines that make a person appear tired, sad, or angry. Because the incision is made near the hairline, scarring is minimal. You will look fresher, younger, and more alert after your browlift, though nobody will be able to tell what has changed.
A person’s lips are one of their most important facial features, framing smiles and words. We offer various procedures that can increase or decrease the size of your lips in order to improve appearance, including injectable treatments.
Liposuction is used to remove undesirable pockets of fat from the body, including the face and neck. A double chin can not only detract from your appearance but may also cause you to feel self-conscious. Advanced liposuction techniques can create impressive results.
