As we transition into winter and our schedules quickly fill up with family, friend and work events, it is sometimes easy to forget to take the time to maintain a healthy lifestyle.   At Southern Plastic Surgery, Dr. David Whiteman often stresses to his patients the importance regular exercise and nutritious eating has on not only staying healthy, but maintaining plastic surgery results; however, sometimes despite our best efforts, patients may have isolated areas of exercise and diet resistant fat.

Dr. Whiteman’s November featured procedure is liposuction, a popular body contouring procedure that helps patients achieve a more contoured aesthetic. During liposuction, Dr. Whiteman uses a thin hollow tube (a cannula) to loosen and remove excess fat with a vacuum suction through small incisions.  Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess skin and fat around the lower midsection in addition to tightening abdominal muscles to create a firmer, smooth contour.

In addition to body contouring procedures, Dr. Whiteman has over 20 years of plastic surgery experience performing breast procedures such as breast augmentation and breast reconstruction.  From now until December 31st, 2013, patients who received Mentor® breast implants and refer a friend who also chooses Mentor® implants will receive a Visa® pre-paid gift card for $100 or $250 as a thank you for sharing their positive experience.  Offering saline, silicone and cohesive silicone gel implants by Mentor® for breast augmentation, Dr. Whiteman meets with each patient to discuss the various types of implants available and address any questions you may when deciding the right implants to give you the best fit to meet your aesthetic goals.
