Breast Revision Surgery Helps Patients with Previous Augmentation Complications or Change of Heart

southern plastic surgeryFor most women considering breast augmentation surgery, the thought of having to redo the surgery is probably the last thing on their minds. The reasons for breast augmentation revision are numerous, but the most common include capsular contracture, switching from saline to silicone implants (implant exchange), weight- or age-related changes, and cosmetic concerns.

While the majority of plastic surgery patients are pleased with their breast augmentation results, there are always one or two individuals whose results did not turn out as they expected. Heidi Montag, former reality television star, has brought this issue to the forefront of American gossip magazines as she recently talked about regretting her multiple plastic surgery procedures including liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, chin reduction, brow lift, and buttock augmentation.

Dr. David Whiteman does his best to prevent these incidences through education and by discussing patient desires, needs, and expectations before surgery during a thorough consultation and determining which procedure would best benefit that person’s individual situation. Continue reading

southern plastic surgeryEliminating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Radiesse® is a facial filler that works to plump areas of the face that have lost volume over time. Radiesse® can also be used as a supplement along with Juvederm® and Restylane® for those with deeper lines that Juvederm® and Restylane® cannot fill on their own.

Collagen gives the skin elasticity and volume to keep us looking young and smooth. Unfortunately, collagen deteriorates as we age leaving the skin lax and producing facial lines. Radiesse® refills these lines and helps the skin naturally reproduce more of its own collagen. Because it contains phosphate and calcium ions naturally found in bones and teeth, allergic reaction is minimized with results from Radiesse® typically lasting a year or more.

Radiesse® is an excellent non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation and is often the preference of those who do not yet need the dramatic results of plastic surgery, but would like to subtly revitalize their appearancesto achieve their cosmetic goals. Used most often for erasing smile lines, marionette lines (wrinkles on the cheeks), and jowls, Radiesse® can be used to rejuvenate the appearance of hands as well.
