The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures

During consultations, Dr. David Whiteman meets with patients who often express aesthetic concerns for more than one area of their face and/or body. At Southern Plastic Surgery, P.C., Dr. Whiteman offers procedures like facial rejuvenation and mommy makeover surgery that combine cosmetic treatments into a single procedure. Combining procedures lends other advantages in addition to overall rejuvenation as patients can avoid having two or more separate operations and recovery periods to reduce facility and anesthesia costs and overall downtime.

discussing options with plastic surgeonMany patients interested in facial procedures may want to smooth wrinkles and furrows while also addressing features like the nose or eyes. Cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), facelift, and rhinoplasty can all address signs of aging including drooping skin, wrinkles, and lines. Botox® and facial fillers can also be applied with surgical procedures for improved anti-aging results. By combining procedures, Dr. Whiteman can help patients achieve a more refreshed, balanced look.

Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery can be performed at the same time to restore breasts for a more youthful look. Breast augmentation and reduction adjust breast shape and volume while a lift removes excess skin and tightens the areas surrounding the breasts. In addition to the breast procedures mentioned above, body procedures can be combined as well.

Body procedures can be combined to achieve a leaner contour as liposuction removes unwanted fat while abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) eliminates loose, hanging skin. Breast surgery and body contouring procedures are commonly combined in a procedure known as mommy makeover to help women achieve pre-baby bodies.

It’s important for patients to have good overall health prior to choosing combination procedures as time under anesthesia is longer and complication risk can increase. After surgery, Dr. Whiteman strongly recommends adapting a healthy diet and regular exercise routine to maintain and improve plastic surgery results. Dr. Whiteman shares his special interest of health and wellness through his blog including exercise and diet tips, healthy recipes, and safely healing from your procedure.

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.
