"I am writing this review in hopes that others would have the privilege to have the best doctor in the world make your body into a master piece. I had gastric bypass 2.5 years ago and needless to say after losing 110lbs my body was just deflected. I thought after losing all this weight I would feel fabulous but I didn't. I actually felt worse. So began my hunt for a plastic surgeon to help me regain my confidence. My search went through 10 plus surgeons until I found Dr. White I normally wouldn't have paid for a consultation but I had read so many positive reviews and set through so many dreaded consultations I thought what the heck lets give it a try. So I called and scheduled my appointment. I walked into the office it was so different, then the moment came when Dr. White walked into the room and I have to say all of my fears and worries just disappeared. He spent over two hours talking with me and my husband answering all of our questions he wasn't like the rest he genuinely cared about me and hearing all of my needs, wants, and desires. So the time came when we talked about cost YES the dreaded part. I will say this he is not cheap by any means but the ole saying is so very true "you get what you pay for". And believe me he is worth every penny he charges! So now your thinking how would I know this? Well I also had several Weightloss friends that were having tummy tucks at the same time as I was so we walked this journey together and my journey compared to theirs was worth the money I paid extra for. My poor girlfriends that had their surgery is now having to come see Dr. White to fix all the horrible work their surgeons did. Dr. White spent 10 hours on my body yes 10 hours he took his time he made me perfect and to think I never even needed 1 pain pill and not even 1 bruise was caused on my body. Dr. White has completely changed my life he truely cares about people and takes pride in his work. I can not begin to thank him enough for the new me!"- R.A. / Google / Nov 18, 2016
"I had debated for years on whether or not to have a breast augmentation, I was worried I wouldn’t be pleased with the results I obtained, whether they turn out too big, too small, resembling chicken breasts, etc.. but I knew as soon as Dr. White spoke with me in the consultation that he would make them perfect! I loved that his consultation was different from most others, it wasn’t about numbers on the implant, it was about my body and what would fit perfectly. He pointed out things I never even noticed about my breasts before! I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! I feel more confident and sexy! Even my mother in law compliments me everyday about how good I look since I did the procedure. I highly recommend Dr. White!"- K.B. / Google / Aug 01, 2018
"I have wanted to get augmentation for over 15 years. I have went to numerous surgeons over the years and never felt right. Then Dr. White fell in my lap...literally! Haha!

I’m in love with my new look. They literally are beautiful! I put my whole heart and trust is Dr. White. He delivered results that are absolutely incredible!!!! I highly recommend his technique, his approach to perfection and his kindness. I’m for sure will be a reacurring patient! He and staff are the best!"- T.S. / Google / Jul 28, 2018
"Dr. White is truly an artist. If you are considering breast augmentation, just go set up a consultation to hear what he has to say. Dr. White listens to what you are looking for and gives you implants based on what’s best for your body shape. After meeting him and his staff, my husband felt he was the best surgeon. The procedure was less painful than I expected and my recovery time was short. It was so fun and exciting to find out what my size was! My husband loves Dr. White and my new look!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jul 26, 2018
"Dr. White and his staff we're amazing to work with. they made me feel comfortable during my entire procedure from the consultation, day of surgery to post op. I love the customer care and attention to detail they provide. Dr. White is a perfectionist and very thorough with explaining the procedure I was about to receive and what to expect. Needless to say I was amazed with my results I don't know why I didn't go to him any sooner. I got a gynecomastia lipo procedure and so happy about my experience and results that I will be returning to him for a second procedure in October. My fiancé was with me through the entire process and loved Dr. White so much she decided to choose him for her breast augmentation surgery and is in love with her results. I would highly recommend Dr. White and his staff to anyone searching for a excellent plastic surgeon."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jul 19, 2018
Types of Injectables
The market for injectable fillers has exploded over the last decade; offering numerous options and brands for patients to consider.
A fat transfer is a process that takes fat from one body part and directly transfers it to an area of the face to add volume. This type of filler offers good results, but may not last as long because the body will naturally absorb some of the injected fat.
Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids. It can be derived from the human body or animals (known as bovine collagen). Collagen feels very natural when injected. It is commonly used in the lips for lip augmentation.
Calcium hydroxyapatite is a substance found naturally in human bones. It is a mineral-like compound and one of the heavier derma fillers. This particular filler treatment is generally used for deep crevices and creases.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in the human body. It can be found in connective and skin tissue and cartilage. It is extracted, reformulated and then offered as a derma filler. It is a popular choice because of its compatibility.
Polylactic acid is a synthetic substance created and used as a filler. This particular substance works differently than the other fillers because, once injected, it stimulates collagen production. Therefore, results will not be immediate but will appear gradually over time.
The primary semi-permanent filler on the market today is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). This filler contains a low concentration of microspheres suspended in a larger amount of purified collagen gel. PMMA is more solid and heavier than most other fillers. It is used for deep wrinkles, deep contours and crevices, and is sometimes used as a permanent implant during reconstructive surgery.
During/After the Procedure
Prior to treatment, the practitioner will assess various aspects of the face and make marks directly on the skin to note where the injection sites will be. The face will be cleansed and a local anesthetic will be applied to help numb the top layer of skin. Using a syringe with a fine needle, the filler will be injected into the marked areas until the desired fullness has been achieved. Most patients are pleased with their results. While this will vary by filler product, most will produce results lasting from 3 months to a full year.
The price for an injectable filler treatment will vary depending on how many syringes will be needed and product used.

Injectable Filler FAQ's
Are Fillers Safe?
All injectable fillers on the market today are FDA-approved and are safe to use. It is important to discuss the differences between each filler treatment to decide which is the best choice for your specific situation.
The results of each injectable filler treatment will vary. On average, most will last between 3 months and a full year. Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane are among some of the most common fillers and usually last 6 months or longer. Fat injections will last the shortest amount of time because a portion will reabsorb into the body within several months.
Fillers VS. BOTOX?
Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to smooth the skin’s surface. BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin offer a result that looks and acts similar, but with a different approach. These treatments use a neurotoxic agent injected into the skin to temporarily freeze overactive muscles causing wrinkles. When the muscles relax, the visible wrinkles on the outer layer of the skin relax and soften, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance.
