Facial Trauma/Breast Reconstruction
"In 1989, I was involved in a car accident that caused dramatic trauma to my face and body. Dr. Marc Wetherington took on the task
of repairing my burned body and reconstructing my face. His incredible work provided me with the self-confidence to pursue my dreams
with minimal evidence of that horrific accident. Since 1989, I have been a member of a Division I dance team, professional cheerleading
team, pursued advanced degrees including a Doctorate in Education, and was crowned Mrs. Georgia International in 2005. When my mother
was diagnosed with breast cancer twenty years later, there was only one surgeon to consider for her reconstructive surgery. Dr. Wetherington
has provided amazing care for two generations of my family and will continue to be my family's choice for plastic surgery." (P.G.)
The positive effects of having a full tummy tuck transcend far beyond the physical and are most notably apparent in the psychological gains reflected in self-esteem and confidence. The choice to have an abdominoplasty became clear to me after a considerable amount of contemplation as I moved through the process of reflecting on how two pregnancies had clearly affected and significantly changed my body. Prior to my final decision to have elective surgery, I found myself in the best physical shape of my adult life and at a weight 15 pounds less than my pre-pregnancy weight, yet the excess abdominal skin remained. Dr. Wetherington provided an environment of decision-making that was both caring and patient. He and his amazing staff guided me through the entire pre-op, intra-op, and post-op process with attention to every detail from emotional to physical to financial. I never thought having a tummy tuck could change my life as much as it did. I now carry myself with the poise and confidence that come with knowing I look my best. My greatest thanks to Dr. Wetherington and his team! (L.M.)
Upon my decision to have breast augmentation I began my search for the right surgeon. I was extremely nervous and had a lot of concerns
and questions. I consulted with two others surgeons before meeting Dr. Wetherington. I still had questions that I felt were not answered.
When I met with Dr. Wetherington he made me feel so at ease and really took the time with me and answered all of my questions and earned my
trust. I felt complete confidence in him as my surgeon. It was then I decided to choose him for my augmentation. I could not be happier
with the results! His staff was amazing and they took great care of me before and after the surgery. I have remained a patient of Dr.
Wetherington for over five years now and have since referred several friends and family to him. They too were very pleased with their results.
Thank you Dr Wetherington! (K.W.)
"I have had several procedures done over the past ten years and each time Dr. Wetherington has always taken his time in explaining
each step of the procedure....he never rushed through anything. He and his staff were there to answer any questions before and after the
procedure. I have and will continue to recommend his office to anyone. Thank you for being a wonderful surgeon and having a wonderful
Cancer survivor and Breast Reconstruction Patient
"When I finally decided it was time to take charge again by having a breast reconstruction I found Dr. Wetherington on the internet.
From my first appointment, my husband and I were impressed with him because we could feel he didn't just consider me a patient, but a
person who needed the least painful and least invasive surgical reconstruction possible to regain some of my life back. Now one and a
half years later, I am so grateful to Dr. Wetherington for giving me a precious gift, my newly developed self-esteem and new body!"
I did a lot of research about plastic surgeons when I moved to Rome, knowing that at some time I would need my eyelids repaired. I had
cosmetic eyelid surgery done years ago by another surgeon and the results were not the best, but I lived with it for years. I chose Dr.
Wetherington to revise my blepharoplasty and during the procedure he had to do a lot of repairs to my lower eyelids. Dr Wetherington was my
favorite; he did not push me into anything. Two years ago he did the surgery and I could not have been more pleased. It continues to look

"I'm very satisfied with my reconstruction surgery. Dr. Wetherington is a wonderful and professional surgeon. My husband and I feel
like we made a new friend during our time dealing with cancer and the follow-up surgery". (E.W.)
Breast Reconstruction/Facial Trauma
Our family has known and greatly respected, appreciated and trusted Dr. Marc Wetherington for over 20 years. In 1989, when my sixteen year
old daughter was injured in an automobile accident, Dr. Wetherington was the plastic surgeon on call and performed emergency facial reconstructive
surgery on her. During this traumatic time in our life, he was much more than just our doctor, but also became a trusted friend who not only
tended to the medical phase of her recuperation, but was also there to support our mentally and emotionally. And what was the outcome... she
was winner of a local beauty pageant three months following surgery, and was crowned Mrs. Georgia in 2005!
When in 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy, there was only one plastic surgeon for me... Dr. Marc Wetherington.
And on the first visit before any surgery had been done, he walked into the room and immediately remembered me as well as my daughter's surgery in 1989.
He and his staff have been most knowledgeable and professional, yet kind, caring and loving—a rare combination in today's medical environment.
They have been most attentive to my total well-being, and have help to make this reconstruction process a very comfortable one. Dr. Marc Wetherington
and his wonderful staff are simply the best. Northwest Georgia is very fortunate to have Dr. Wetherington; he will always be our choice of plastic
surgeons, no matter where we live or how far we have to travel to get to his office. Dr. Wetherington and his staff are total perfection! (Y.G.)
