In the January 2014 issue of Best Self Atlanta, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman has been featured in the “BestRX” section where doctors provide answers to frequently asked health questions. He advises patients to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle to prolong long-lasting body contouring results. With health and wellness as a large component of his practice, Dr. Whiteman reminds patients that liposuction and tummy tuck should not be weight loss solutions but rather an enhancing procedure to address areas that diet and exercise cannot.
This month, Dr. Whiteman features breast procedures for patients interested in enhancing their breast size with a breast lift and breast augmentation. Breast lift surgery addresses sagging breasts by re-positioning breasts to a more youthful area on the chest.

Traditional facial procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery are known to address the signs of aging and restore a more rested, youthful appearance. In addition to surgical procedures, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman also provides non-surgical treatments including Botox® and facial fillers to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. In a recent New York Times article, the term “baby face” was coined by patients who are seeking the round, plump cheeks that associate with a younger faces. Facial fillers are typically injected into targeted areas of the face where wrinkles appear, but now physicians have begun injecting fillers into cheeks for a fuller, lifted result.
During consultation, Dr. Whiteman discusses treatment plans with each patient to address their concerns. Facial fillers such as Juvéderm® and Expression® are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in human skin. Fillers stimulate skin to produce more of its own collagen so treatments last longer, typically up to a year or two.
As one of the most prominent areas of the face, the cheeks may deflate and show excess skin as age and gravity takes its toll. These fillers re-plump areas where creases and furrows develop while also lifting folds. Facial fillers are a great non-surgical alternative to cheek implants or facelift surgery as anti-aging treatments. Many patients choose injectables as there is minimal downtime and no surgery, scars, or incisions required.
