5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Hot Bod Back! - Duluth, GA

After having my first child at 17, second at 20 and my third and last baby one year ago at age 29 it's time to get my bod back!! I have weighed 220 at my worst and 140 at my best now. I am VERY active. I run at least 15 miles each week and CrossFit everyday. I have worked hard to get to where I am physically, but no matter what I do nothing is going to fix my stomach without a tummy tuck! I...

Great Results - Atlanta, GA

I had to have my breast implants replaced after many years (over 30) and I was very anxious about how I would look. Dr. Whiteman was very reassuring and the surgery was very successful, in fact, I look better than when I had it done the first time. I also had my double chin fixed and am extremely pleased with the result.

The "Breast" Doctor in Town - Duluth, GA

After having 2 kids and losing a lot of weight, I wasn't sure if I wanted to remove them all together and just get a lift or go with a smaller silicone gel implant and breast lift. (I had saline for 10 years) After discussing everything with Dr. Whiteman, I am glad I chose Silicone gel. They are BY FAR the better option and was not available when I had my 1st surgery in the 90's. They...

Dr. Whiteman Did an AMAZING Job - and the Results Are Still Great 7 Years Later! - Atlanta, GA

I was 5'4" and a size 34DD. After having 2 kids, they were a "low riding" DD. I used to joke that they looked like tennis balls in tube socks - no volume and very saggy. I went in for a consultation with Dr. Whiteman, who said that he had recently begun using a "newer method" called Le joeur? or something like that (keep in mind this was 7 years ago) where there is significant lift as well as...

Nostril Reduction and Nasal Tip Enhancement - Atlanta, GA

I am scheduled to have surgery the first week of May 2013. I am not getting a full rhinoplasty but more of a nostril reduction as well as enhancement to the tip of my nasal. I am hoping for natural-looking results. I decided to go with the surgeon due to his experience in ethnic rhinoplasty and his experience with Nene Leakes from the Housewives of Atlanta. Surgery done today. Nostril...

ByeBye Boobs N' Belly - Atlanta, GA

I am planning to go forward with it regardless of the costs or opinions of others. The comfort of fitting into a pair of pants with no hang time or muffin top is ideal for me at this point. I am only 31yrs old and have struggled with my wait for 20 of them and mostly in the belly & boob area. I can't wait to see my results.....tummy tuck here I come!!!!!

Feeling More Confident of Cc Size but Still Very Anxious! - Atlanta, GA

I am having my BA done a week from today. My surgeon has suggested I get 457 cc & silicone implants above the muscle. My husband & I are a little aprehensive about them being too large. I am only 5' & 109 lbs. However, I am a current deflated 36 B so I think I have alot of extra tissue or sag that he may be taking into account that I may not know. I do trust my surgeon so much...

Radiess is AMAZING...and So It Dr. Whiteman! - Duluth, GA

After over a year of research on this site an youtube, I chose 3 doctors to visit for consultations regarding facial filler (I'm in my mid 40's) and Rhinoplasty. Dr. Whiteman was the last office that I visited due to scheduling. The week prior to my appointment, I saw Dr. Whiteman on the show "I Dream of Nene: The Wedding" as Nene Leakes to her bridesmaids to Dr. Whiteman as a beauty treat. ...

This is my second time around - Breast Reduction - Atlanta, GA

This is my second time around. I had a breast reduction twelve years ago, went down to a D cup, after getting pregnant my breast grew back to a whopping 36h cup. So here I go again with severe back and neck pain and under breast rash. I am paying out of pocket because my insurance company did not approve my procedure. This is so worth it for me to get this done. This site and people reviewing...

2 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

About to Have Revision Surgery - Atlanta, GA

I got a chin implant one year ago because I wanted to improve my profile. Unfortunately, it shifted shortly after the surgery. I didn't have any trauma to the area. It just shifted - by a lot - which left my chin looking and feeling lopsided. I went back to Dr. Whiteman 3 times over the next few months complaining of the problem, but he wouldn't acknowledge it. Even though the...

The Healing Power of a Tummy Tuck

In recent years, the tummy tuck has emerged as one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in the US. Known in medical terms as an Abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens the muscles and removes loose skin and fat from the abdomen so that it appears flatter and more toned. Tummy tuck is a great remedy for the lower belly pooch that may result from excess fat or loose skin resulting from child birth. 2015 saw a 9% increase in the number of tummy tuck...

Cellulaze™ + Sculpsure™: The Cellulite & Fat Blaster Combo

Ridding yourself of excess body fat is certainly no picnic. Eating right, staying active and limiting stress can all help, but sometimes that is simply not enough. Fat that builds up in your arms & legs and around your derriere can be stubborn and resistant to these positive lifestyle changes, especially as we age. Not to mention the other adverse effects of carrying excess body fat like the accumulation of cellulite. Cellulite is caused by fat found beneath the skin that appears bumpy...
