Happy New Year from Dr. Whiteman & the Whole Southern Plastic Surgery Family!

Cheers from everyone here at Southern Plastic Surgery. 2017 feels like it came and went in a flash. It’s certainly been a great been a great year at Southern Plastic Surgery and our Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center and we all have a lot to be thankful for. The last year brought us some great times like our recent Holiday Open House celebration, many new patients, and plenty of opportunity to provide outstanding aesthetic results with cosmetic surgery and many nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. 2018 offers us a new year of possibilities and experiences we can’t wait to discover.

    Southern Plastic Surgery and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center have come closer than ever to achieving our shared goal of providing the metro Atlanta area with the finest surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments available. Acting as two centers with one specific purpose, Southern Plastic Surgery and Laser Lights embrace the opportunity to provide all our patients with the world class treatment, professionalism, and discretion they deserve.

    Dr. Whiteman was a guest surgeon and lecturer at the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS) in Toronto, during which he received an award for his contributions to the world of cosmetic surgery.

    Laser Lights was honored to once again be named Best Laser Hair Removal Facility in Best Self Magazine’s “Best of 2017” contest. We would like to thank our amazing staff, patients, and everyone else who helped make this award possible!

    We launched a Southern Plastic Surgery Instagram account to help provide our patients with a little more access to Dr. Whiteman and everything going on at Southern Plastic Surgery and Laser Lights including exclusive photos, videos, and info on special promotional offers.

    Four of our Southern Plastic Surgery interns, Tiffany, CC, Jim, and Jeremia completed their internship programs with Dr. Whiteman. We can’t wait to see where their careers in medicine and cosmetic surgery go from here!

  We made numerous media appearances including Dr. Whiteman appearing on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Bravo. Just recently, our Laser Lights practice administrator Jackie Madison and licensed medical aesthetician, Emily Hutchinson were featured on Women on the Move with Kim McNair.

2017 was a big year here at Southern Plastic Surgery and we have even higher hopes for 2018. We will continue to seek out new procedures and treatments to help provide our patients with as many options as possible to achieve the aesthetic change they desire.

Answering Common Questions About Fat Transfer Injections

There is no question that fat transfer is becoming more and more popular with cosmetic surgery patients across the country. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), fat transfer injections to the face, breasts, and buttocks all increased significantly between 2015 and last year. Still, despite its surging popularity, I have noticed that patients still have plenty of questions about what they can and can’t do with fat transfer. That’s why I’ve taken some time to answer some common questions about how fat transfer injections can help my patients achieve their personal aesthetic goals.

Answering Common Questions About Fat Transfer InjectionsQuestion 1: What is the difference between facial fat transfer injections and facial filler injections?

Both fat transfer injections and dermal fillers can rejuvenate a patient’s face by plumping up areas of lost volume and improving the facial contour. The biggest difference between fat transfer and facial fillers is that fat transfer uses a patient’s own organic material, whereas facial fillers use a synthetic material instead. This makes fat transfer for the face a bit safer for certain patients, especially those who are allergic or sensitive to certain products.

Question 2: Can I dramatically increase my breast size with fat transfer injections?

Unfortunately not. Though fat transfer injections to the breast are very popular right now, they cannot replicate the dramatic increase in breast size that a breast augmentation procedure can provide. Instead, fat transfer for the breast is perfect for patients who seek a more modest, natural-looking increase in breast size, or those who want to correct a mild or moderate asymmetry.

Question 3: Will my fat transfer procedure lead to much scarring?

One of the many things my patients love about fat transfer is the minimal scarring it leaves. Because liposuction incisions are typically small, the scars left behind are also small (often just a few millimeters long). I also try to make incisions in less visible locations. Even the more visible scars left after liposuction will fade over time. Scarring may be more visible for patients who require larger liposuction cannulas or those with more darkly pigmented skin.

I hope this was educational for patients who are interested in learning more about this fantastic, versatile procedure. If you think fat transfer injections may be right for you, it’s important to bring this up during your liposuction consultation where I will determine if you have the necessary amount of fat in donor sites required for fat transfer.
