In every consultation, Dr. Whiteman tells his patients that he will do his part in enhancing their appearance with a cosmetic surgery procedure, but is careful to remind his patients that it is of utmost importance that they do their part to maintain the results. For ALL patients, that means maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Especially for liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast reduction patients, keeping up with regular diet and exercise is the only way to maintain their results. But even cosmetic surgeries of the face, patients must maintain their health – such as quitting smoking – in order to facilitate healing.
Because plastic surgery and healthy lifestyles go hand-in-hand, Dr. Whiteman decided to launch a health and wellness section to southernplasticsurgery.com. The health and wellness section will provide patients with diet and exercise tips including: Common Diet Mistakes, Tips for Diet Success, Hidden Calories in Foods, Healthy Snacks, and a feature on how to correctly read food labels.
The health and wellness section will also contain a section of healthy, delicious, and low calorie recipes. All of the recipes have been personally made and approved by members of the Southern Plastic Surgery staff.
Dr. Whiteman hopes that, with the help of the health and wellness section of his website, that all his patients will make strides towards healthy, fit lifestyles to keep them looking and feeling their best!
After years of working with breast reconstruction patients and involvement on the board of The Sport of Giving, a local breast cancer (now all women’s cancer) nonprofit, Dr. Whiteman noticed an inspiring trend among these women. Becoming painfully aware that life is short, many survivors’ battles with the disease become a catalyst for them to start their own businesses and begin new careers that truly made them happy. Thinking of how great it would be to make others aware of these strong women and their new businesses, “Life After the Fight” was born.
Life After the Fight is a local business directory that ONLY lists the businesses of breast cancer survivors – an effort to promote and support these amazing women’s professional ventures as they move on with their lives. Through the forum of Facebook, Life After the Fight is also a way for these survivors to support and interact with each other.
We at Life After the Fight say that these businesses are built from the strength of the survivors that created them – so not only are you supporting breast cancer survivors, but your are getting access to and information on some GREAT businesses in the local area.

The market for facial filler and cosmetic injectables is one of the most competitive in the world of plastic and cosmetic surgery. So it is not surprising that each product is constantly trying to improve – a bonus for the patients and doctors that use them. Most recently, popular facial fillers including Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane®, are now FDA approved for use with lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic, which will gently numb the injection site, making the procedure much more comfortable for the patient. Facial fillers are effective for smoothing out deep folds and facial wrinkles, plumping up lips, and correcting scars and depressions; and now that these products can be used with lidocaine, the procedure is easier than ever!
Also new in the world of injectables is the Dysport® “Love it or Leave it” challenge. Patients can receive a $75 rebate if they try Dysport® – then after 15-30 days, if they love it, they can receive another $75 off their next Dysport® injection. Or they decide to leave it, patients can still receive a $75 rebate off a competitive treatment (Botox®).
For more information on any of these injectables, or to schedule a consultation, contact Southern Plastic Surgery.
