Double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Whiteman meets with each of his patients to discuss facial plastic surgery to address concerning signs of aging. Many patients do not realize that there are various options in addition to traditional facelift surgery to meet their unique concerns. Dr. Whiteman uses his extensive surgical experience to find the best treatment to provide the most natural results.
In fact, facelift surgery can be performed on specific areas of the face for patients with moderate to minimal signs of aging. Using smaller incisions to target certain areas of the face, mini facelifts rejuvenate areas of concern for patients. A mini facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin without affecting the brow and eye areas. Mini facelifts can also address jowls on the lower third of the face, including the neck.
As the eyes are one of the first facial features to show signs of aging and lax skin, Dr. Whiteman can perform eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to smooth skin and wrinkles around the upper and/or lower eyelids. In addition to smoothing wrinkles, lower eyelid surgery can remove under eye bags. This procedure can also be performed in combination with other treatments such as a brow lift which addresses wrinkles on the forehead.
Other procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and chin augmentation can be performed to enhance facial aesthetics. During rhinoplasty, the patient’s nose shape and size is sculpted to provide facial balance and a more youthful appearance. Genioplasty, or chin augmentation, can give an individual’s chin a more prominent position to balance their overall aesthetic.
Facial fillers and cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm® and Botox® can also be used as individual anti-aging treatments and in combination with plastic surgery to maintain results. Many patients with minimal signs of aging prefer these treatments as there is no downtime.

Southern Plastic Surgery reminds patients that the best way to prevent premature aging such as wrinkles and fine lines is through sun protection. The sun’s harmful UV rays can not only cause permanent sun damage, but can also ultimately lead to skin cancer.
Double board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. David Whiteman stresses to each of his patients how important a proper skincare regimen is year-round. Southern Plastic Surgery offers patients two high-quality skincare product lines including NIA 24™ Niacin-Powered Skin Therapy and our Private Label All Natural Skin Treatments to protect and promote healthy skin.
Our sun damage prevention lotion is oil free and absorbs instantly for complete broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB ultraviolet rays. Our private line offers sun damage prevention and treatment in the form of a skin lightener gel to help fade age spots, freckles, and sun-damaged skin. Other skincare products available at Southern Plastic Surgery include cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreens for your everyday skin routine.
Even with proper skin care and protection, time will result in some skin changes like decreased elasticity. Laser skin resurfacing uses laser technology to remove areas of damaged, wrinkled skin and can be especially for areas around the mouth and eyes. Patients with deeper wrinkles and lines or areas of lost volume may benefit from cosmetic injectables including Botox® and Restylane®. In addition to cosmetic injections, Dr. Whiteman is highly skilled in facial plastic surgery procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), browlift, and facelift to provide patients with a more youthful, natural look.
