ADVANCED offers patients in Dallas facial plastic surgery that provides high-quality results through a minimally-invasive process. Our practice leader, Dr. Benjamin Bassichis, uses years of training and the latest medical techniques to give you a better experience. Learn more about our approach.

Issues to Consider

When they choose a facial plastic surgeon, Dallas patients often focus on the most immediate questions. They want to know what they will look like after their surgery. They ask about the cost of procedures, how soon they can show off their new look, and what to expect the day of their operation.

All of these are important questions to ask. Dallas facial plastic surgery is a significant undertaking, and you should be as knowledgeable as possible about the procedure you are having and the work your medical team will be doing.

However, an often-overlooked issue for patients when exploring doctors is how the surgery will blend in naturally with who you already are. It’s an issue we discuss with every patient who visits the ADVANCED practice, and it connects with our entire approach to surgery.

Our Minimally-Invasive Approach

Minimally-invasive procedures are treatments customized to your body that rely on the best surgical techniques and latest equipment.

To provide minimally-invasive facial plastic surgery to Dallas patients, Dr. Bassichis uses small and virtually undetectable incisions. As a result, patients get several benefits:

  • Less bruising and swelling in the face and in the area of the surgery.
  • A faster recovery from the procedure, which lets you enjoy your results sooner.
  • Outpatient procedures. Thanks to the approach Dr. Bassichis uses, you aren’t required to stay overnight at a medical facility.

ADVANCED Surgery

If you are seeking minimally-invasive facial plastic surgery, you have lots of options with ADVANCED. Dr. Bassichis performs the endoscopic browlift, mid-facelift, and necklift with tiny cameras and instruments. He can hide incisions in surgeries such as an upper eyelid procedure (“blepharoplasty”), and he can minimize scarring and provide shorter recovery times for surgeries such as chin and cheek implants.

This focus on minimally-invasive surgery means that you can refresh your appearance without looking as though you’ve “had work done.” It also means that you can enhance your attractiveness without losing who you are.

Choosing ADVANCED

Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers a highly-skilled licensed medical staff. As a patient, you will feel supported throughout your procedure and confident in the care you are receiving.

Dr. Bassichis and his team prioritize patient safety and comfort as much as excellent results. Both Dr. Bassichis and a licensed medical aesthetician oversee your procedure to ensure quality of care. For ongoing needs, ADVANCED offers the Medi.SPA, a relaxing environment for holistic facial health. The Medi.SPA staff provides several options for small steps towards healthy, beautiful skin.

Our end-to-end care is among the reasons that patients rely on ADVANCED from their 20s well into their 50s. We encourage you to explore the other benefits our practice offers.

Beauty starts on the inside. While cosmetic procedures and treatments can take years off of your appearance, upholding a healthy diet is key to maintaining a youthful appearance. These popular anti-aging foods have gotten the attention of many researchers for their nutritional contents, and may help slow the aging process. Consider increasing the effectiveness of your cosmetic treatment’s results starting with your diet including these healthy suggestions:

Berries– Blueberries in particular, but also cranberries, raspberries and blackberries are highly recommended for healthy aging. These tiny superfoods are packed with healthy antioxidants as well as flavor. Antioxidants protect our bodies against disease and aging factors. Berries are also helpful to maintain short-term memory. They’re loaded with antioxidants, phytonutrients, low in calories, and high in water and fiber to help control blood sugar and keep you full longer. And their flavors satisfy sweets cravings for a fraction of the calories in baked goods. Blueberries lead the pack because they are among the best source of antioxidants and are widely available. Cranberries are also widely available fresh, frozen, or dried. All can add flavor and nutrition to numerous dishes, from salads and cereals to baked goods and yogurt. Berries pack an incredible amount of nutritional goodness into a small package. Enjoy liberally!

Red Wine– While Dr. Bassichis does not recommend drinking alcohol excessively, there are properties in red wine that research studies show are effective in maintaining a youthful appearance. Red wine not only contains flavonoids, the antioxidant prominent in acai berry and common in other dark berries such as red grapes and blueberries, red wine contains a nonflavonoid called reservatol. Studies show that reservatol may help prevent clogged arteries. For you, this means improved circulation and stimulating a healthy blood flow to the face to create a natural, radiant glow. Cheers.

Parsley– A couple tablespoons of parsley can supply up to 150% of your daily recommendation of vitamin K. This vitamin not only helps absorb calcium to maintain strong bones, it is also effective in preventing and minimizing dark under eye circles. Vitamin K is resistant to absorption so it is recommended that you obtain it through fresh foods. Parsley is also a great source of Vitamin C – another fabulous and delicious antioxidant. Have you ever tried the wonderful Mediterranean dish called Tabbouli?

Avocado – The popular food is rich in monosaturated fats and many vitamins including vitamin C and vitamin E.  Avocado was once advised against because it was accused of being a fatty vegetable. In recent years, studies have shown that it’s a “good” kind of fat. In fact, monosaturated fats such as those found in avocado can actually help lower cholesterol. Vitamin E may be one of the most essential vitamins to beauty. It promotes healthy hair, skin, and nail growth. It acts as an anti-oxidant protecting the body against free radicals.  Vitamin C, more popularly associated with boosting the immune system, also acts as an anti-oxidant and helps build collagen to promote a youthful appearance of the skin. Vitamin C is particularly helpful after a cosmetic procedure because it promotes healing and rebuilds healthy tissues. Gorgeous guacamole!

Salmon –  is a super food because of its omega-3 fatty acid content. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids help protect heart health. That’s why the American Heart Association recommends eating fatty fish like salmon twice weekly. Salmon is low in calories (200 for 3 ounces) has lots of protein, is a good source of iron, and is very low in saturated fat. Omega-3 fatty acids inhibit certain molecules that lead to inflammation and resulting skin problems. They also support the normal healthy skin cell turnover that helps keep acne and wrinkles at bay. Dr. Bassichis enjoys his Salmon grilled with lots of fresh lemon (and perhaps a glass of the red wine mentioned above!).

Water – Water helps hydrate your body and leads to plump, healthy skin. Adequate hydration helps flush out toxins that can cause skin problems. It is also essential for skin metabolism and regeneration.   The old adage of 8 cups a day holds true –  and beautiful.

Enjoy and Be Healthy!

Beautifully (and deliciously) yours,
Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis

Dr. Bassichis combines this skill with an approach that empowers patients to make the right surgical decisions.

He and his staff understand how important it is that patients go into their procedure with realistic expectations. Dallas rhinoplasty surgery, both primary and revision, is one of the most Dr. Bassichis’ numerously performed procedures and he enjoys the nuances, challenges, successes derived from each case.

The Initial Consultation

As a candidate for Dallas rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will take time to discuss what your goals are for the procedure: essentially, what bothers you and what you would like to change. During this initial consultation, the doctor will analyze your existing nose, taking note of nasal bones, cartilage, and skin. He’ll also pay close attention to how your nose fits with the other features on your face.

You should use this time to provide Dr. Bassichis with any details about past trauma or surgery that you have had in the area of their nose. These factors are important for deciding the best approach to your case. Also, patients who have significant allergy problems, trouble with sleeping, or other symptoms associated with breathing problems should share these details as well.

Setting Expectations

Dr. Bassichis believes that a successful operation must achieve the patient’s personal goals. The only way to accomplish this is for the surgeon and the patient to have a shared vision for what the post-surgery nose will look like.

As part of an evaluation, Dr. Bassichis utilizes diagnostic tools such as digital imaging to demonstrate how your new nose will look. However, he will also explain the limitations of the procedure so that you understand what surgery can and can’t do. Often, surgical choices rely on the underlying structure of the nose or how the nose must work in harmony with other facial features. Dr. Bassichis looks forward to addressing each of these concerns.

One essential point that he helps rhinoplasty surgery patients in Dallas recognize: there is no one single perfect nose. Dr. Bassichis’ goal is to acheive a nose customized exclusively for you that compliments your face, achieves balance in your overall appearance, and gives you the natural-looking, attractive results you desire.

Everyone knows about Botox (or Dysport) to treat facial wrinkles and lines; however, did you know that Botox can treat excessive sweating as well? This versatile injectable can help those who suffer from hyperhidrosis – the medical condition of excessive sweating. By injecting Botox into the underarms, palms or wherever it is needed, the nerve signal that triggers sweating is blocked, which provides patients with perspiration relief for approximately six months. Many individuals including beauty pageant contestants, celebrities, nervous public speakers, politicians, business people, and others benefit from Botox to treat their excess sweating.
Underarm Botox injections can help prevent unflattering sweat stains on clothing – and subsequent criticism on the red carpet or embarrassment in the boardroom. Botox injections into the palms can minimize embarrassing or troublesome sweating during shaking hands or playing instruments or sports. In Dallas Fort Worth, Benjamin Bassichis MD FACS is the only Black Diamond surgeon injector ensuring experience and expertise for your treatments.  We look forward to answering all your questions about Botox at your personal consultation.

Beautifully yours,
