At the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we invite you to make your surgery as healthy an experience as possible. Although you can be assured that Dr. Bassichis and his staff will take excellent care of you throughout the entire surgical process (and beyond!), there are many things that you can do as the patient to facilitate your best and healthiest healing. Our holistic approach to a healthy surgery includes elements of good nutrition, selected homeopathic remedies to promote recovery, and most importantly the positive mental attitude that will reflect the best ways of preparing the mind, body and spirit for a safe and easy recovery. We like to have our patients consider that their cosmetic procedure can be a beginning to a healthier overall lifestyle.

Good nutrition is as important before and after surgery as it is at any other time. Many medical studies have documented the improvement in post-operative healing that accompanies good nutrition. A balanced diet containing essential nutrients, protein (necessary for wound healing) and calories and good weight management are basic essentials of good nutrition. Sugar and alcohol are well known to suppress wound healing, and should be eliminated. Caffeine withdrawal is bad enough at any time, but worse when compounding a post-operative experience. Good hydration is always important — drink at least 64 ounces of water per day (Our body is 70% water!). Regular exercise for healthy cardiovascular fitness and weight management is another important facet of a healthy lifestyle and will improve your overall health as well as the outcome of your elective surgery. You may wish consult your primary care physician prior to initiating any new exercise regimens. For your pre- and post-operative period (and hopefully for always), we profoundly urge you to cease smoking.

We hope you enjoy the best of health and beauty as you embark on your healing cosmetic surgery journey. Peace.

Beautifully yours,
Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis

Do you ever wonder how young you’ll actually look after your facelift? A recent study reported that plastic surgery procedures took an average of seven to ten years off patients’ appearances, with more extensive facial surgeries reversing the clock even more dramatically.
Another interesting recent study indicated that nasal surgery or rhinoplasty has the most positive additional side effect of taking one-to-two years off patients’ perceived ages.
The study also said that as well as looking younger, the goal of facial plastic surgery is also to make people look generally healthier, happier and more refreshed. And often, that can be more important than perceived age itself.
At ADVANCED, no matter what procedures our patients select, they have that confidence that comes from knowing they are taking good care of their facial health. We think that our patients’ inner radiance and beauty is what truly shines….it is our privilege to help them reveal it.

When it comes to facial plastic surgery, Dallas patients need to make a well-considered choice when selecting a doctor.

Any procedure that involves the face must be conducted carefully. The changes that a doctor makes in one area must complement the other aspects of your face. They should look natural and should add to your overall attractiveness. The right surgeon will help ensure that the result is a significant improvement and that the surgery achieves your personal goals. 

For procedures as important as these, Dallas facial plastic surgery patients choose Dr. Benjamin Bassichis and the team at ADVANCED. ADVANCED provides high-quality services, caring staff, and the professionalism and skill you need.

Options for Facial Plastic Surgery

Dallas patients can choose from among ADVANCE’s procedures, including…

Facelift: Refresh your appearance by removing fat deposits and excess skin and by adding structure to your underlying facial tissues.

Mid-facelift: A more targeted procedure with a faster recovery, the mid-facelift can rejuvenate eyes that appear hollow, soften smile lines, and lift the corners of the mouth.

Browlift: Address signs of aging in the area above the eyes. Dr. Bassichis’ facial plastic surgery process for Dallas patients hides and minimizes scars.

Fat Transfer: Restore your face’s youthful contour and shape, and help improve your skin’s texture and tone with a 100% natural solution.

In addition to these procedures, ADVANCED serves patients with rhinoplasty; Minilift™, facial implants; and other surgeries. The breadth of our expertise is matched by the precision and artistry of Dr. Bassichis’ work.

Medical research has shown that aging skin is the result of more than just years on the calendar. Exposure to environmental elements like sunlight (Ultraviolet or UV rays), smoke, and air pollution all contribute to skin aging. Not only does this lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation – it can lead to more serious skin conditions, including skin cancer. While skin cancers are almost always curable when detected and treated early, the surest line of defense is to prevent them in the first place.

Here are some sun-safety habits that should be part of everyone’s daily healthcare:
1.     Avoid unnecessary sun exposure, especially during the sun’s peak hours (10am to 4pm) and always seek the shade.
2.     Cover up with sun protective clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat, and UV- blocking sunglasses.
3.     Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30+ on the face (don’t forget your ears) and body.
4.     Avoid tanning salons.
5.     Examine your skin from head to toe every month.
6.     Have a professional skin examination annually (try “birthday suit on your birthday” to remember!).

For those who wish to have that “healthy-looking” glow, there are alternatives. Sunless tanning products allow you to achieve an instant, natural-looking tan and in no way contribute to developing skin cancers. But even with your “sunless” tan, remember to wear sunscreen!

Scientific evidence has shown that a topical antioxidant program can help prevent photoaging and the onset of more serious skin conditions. Topical antioxidants have been clinically proven to provide up to eight times the skin’s natural protection from UV damage. Broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreens are a crucial part of the daily prevention process as well. However, antioxidants can protect your skin from the sun in ways that sunscreens can’t. When used together, antioxidants and sunscreens provide more complete photoprotection – preventing photoaging and wrinkle formation, while promoting good skin health. Additionally, we always advise our patients that while department or drug store skin products can be very elegant, the pharmaceutical grade products available in Physician’s offices often contain higher percentages of the active, therapeutic ingredients and therefore can be more effective.

One ounce (about a shot-glass worth) of sunscreen is needed to cover the average exposed areas of an adult. Applying less substantially reduces your protection. There is no such thing as a “waterproof” sunscreen or all-day protection. The FDA only requires testing sunscreen for 80 minutes in still water. Sunscreen needs to be re-applied every two hours to maintain protection. Water resistant sunscreen needs to be applied to dry skin, as sunscreen does not adhere to wet skin.

The most important step in a healthy skin care regimen is that you protect your skin from the damaging UV rays proven to be responsible for premature signs of aging—and the major culprit in causing skin cancers. An SPF level 30 or higher is recommended for the optimal protection of your face. Be aware that SPF only tells you how much UVB protection the product provides. To obtain broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection, look for sunscreen that contains an effective physical sunblock (ex. over 5% zinc or titanium oxide) or a chemical sunscreen absorber that protects in the UVA range. The sun’s UVA rays are constant throughout the year, so sunscreen must be worn on cloudy days and in the winter.

Over the course of your life, you should pay close attention to all parts of your skin. Familiarize yourself with it, so you’ll notice any changes that might occur, such as any change or development in a mole or skin growth that might indicate skin cancer. Whenever you have a question or concern, make sure you consult your Dr. Bassichis or your physician.

It is always our pleasure to take wonderful care of your facial heath at ADVANCED!

Beautifully yours,
Drs. Michelle and Benjamin Bassichis
