Every year, many Dallas women and men visit Dr. Bassichis to inquire about getting a facelift. These patients specifically seek him out for his reputation of providing natural-looking results that provide clients with timeless beauty, not a worked-on, windblown look. One of the many questions Dr. Bassichis receives when consulting with patients about facelifts is, “How visible are my scars going to be after surgery?” Continue reading to learn more.

Dr. Bassichis Works to Disguise Facelift Scars

The good news for Dallas men and women seeking a facelift is that Dr. Bassichis works very hard to high scars when performing a facelift on the lower third of your face. He does this by:

  • Making a small incision underneath the chin to address sagging cheeks and jowls.
  • Making incisions in your hairline, above and around your ear, so scars are disguised when used to address the midface portion of your face.

And because Dr. Bassichis has a policy of working on making you look like the best version of you, not someone with a “windblown” look, not only will nobody see your scars, they’ll be none the wiser that you’ve had work done – unless of course, you tell them

What Makes a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Simply desiring to turn back the hands of time isn’t enough to qualify you to be one of Dr. Bassichis’ patients. In order to be accepted, you must:

  • Share your full medical and mental health history to make sure you are healthy enough for this elective plastic surgery procedure.
  • Pass a pre-operative examination by your Dallas general practitioner to clear you for elective surgery.
  • Fully listen to Dr. Bassichis about the facelift procedure, and communicate back to him that you understand that you know what will take place and what your anticipated results may be.

Your Surgery Day Experience

On the big day, you’ll arrive having fasted at least 12 hours prior. This is necessary because you’ll be receiving general anesthesia for your procedure, and surgeons and anesthesiologists alike prefer to perform elective procedures on patients with empty stomachs to prevent complications.

You’ll first be called back to a pre-op room, where a team of nurses and medical professionals will prepare you for your surgery. Then you’ll be wheeled back to the operating room for the big event.

Once the anesthesiologist has administered your anesthesia through an IV, you’ll quickly fall asleep, and Dr. Bassichis will get to work. When he’s done, you’ll be transferred to a post-op room where you’ll wake up and be monitored by nurses and medical technicians. You’ll need to arrange for a ride home from your surgery because general anesthesia and driving don’t mix.

Why Wait? Schedule Your Consultation today!

If you think your facial appearance makes you look older than you really are, or than you feel inside, there’s no reason to walk around Dallas that way. A facelift can be an excellent procedure to make you look great for your age.

Rhinoplasty Surgery DallasAll Dallas residents decide to see Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery for rhinoplasty surgery for different reasons. But among the most common is the desire to remove a nasal hump. This bulge on the nose can affect your facial look, not only straight on but your profile as well. Luckily, there are rhinoplasty surgery techniques designed to address this exact issue.

How Dr. Bassichis Removes a Nasal Hump

All rhinoplasty surgeries are different, so the techniques employed for your surgery will be different than those of other patients. If you’re coming to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery to have a nasal hump removed, Dr. Bassichis’ first step will be to gently shave the nasal hump down. Not only does this remove the hump, but it also gives you a more aesthetically pleasing look and profile.

After the nasal hump is shaved down during rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will perform a procedure called lateral osteotomy – also known as breaking the nose. While some patients are surprised to learn their nose must be broken to remove a nasal hump, it is actually necessary. Breaking the nose allows for the nose to narrow the nasal bone, thus closing up the open roof that is usually left when a nasal hump is shaved down.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty Surgery

While rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in Dallas and throughout the US, Dr. Bassichis has strict requirements to ensure his potential patients are healthy enough to undergo this elective plastic surgery procedure. They include:

  • Providing all your medical records
  • Being in good general mental health
  • Being in good overall physical health
  • Passing a pre-op exam from your general practitioner before surgery day

Not only does Dr. Bassichis exclusively focus on facial plastic surgeries, but he is also one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the Dallas area. A double board certified surgeon, Dr. Bassichis has the experience, skill, and technique to help you achieve the nose look you desire.*

Rhinoplasty DallasAsk Dr. Bassichis about rhinoplasty surgery, and he’ll tell you the truth – no two rhinoplasty surgeries are alike. Many Dallas men and women seek out his skill to address a variety of issues of the nose, whether they be cosmetic or functional, meaning they are issues that interfere with breathing.

Commonly, patients visit Dr. Bassichis for an initial rhinoplasty surgery consultation to ask if the surgery can address their nostrils, often desiring to make them smaller when potential patients feel their nostrils are too wide. This is definitely something that Dr. Bassichis can address with this elective plastic surgery procedure.

Reducing Nostril Size with Rhinoplasty Surgery

While you may think that reducing the size of wide nostrils is a relatively easy procedure, it’s actually something that requires a careful patient evaluation, an individualized treatment plan, and a lot of skill and technique.

Dr. Bassichis’ Approach to Reducing Nostril Size

While Dr. Bassichis understands that Dallas residents with wide nostrils may want to significantly reduce them, he cautions them to be conservative with their goals. That’s because flaring nostrils are a common facial expression, and you don’t want to lose normal facial expressions and functionality just because you’ve had plastic surgery. You want your results to look natural, and make you look like the best version of you. That’s why Dr. Bassichis works so hard on compiling an individual treatment plan for you and explaining what you might expect your results to look like.

The Actual Surgery

During your nostril reduction rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will create an incision in the crease of the nose – where your nostrils meet your cheeks. From here, he’ll remove a wedge of the nostril wall. The incision will then be sutured (stitched up). Depending on your desired results that you have pre-communicated with Dr. Bassichis, your incision shape may be:

  • Triangular
  • Rectangular
  • Diamond-Shaped

Typically, your nostril reduction rhinoplasty incision is hidden in the crease of your nose so that you won’t have any obvious scars. Nostril reduction may also make your nose appear smaller and narrower.*

Your Recovery Process

All surgeries have a recovery process, and rhinoplasty surgery is no different. Usually, when you get your nostrils reduced, you’ll return to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to have your stitches removed. You’ll likely experience redness in the treatment area for the first two weeks post-op, as well as swelling for the first three weeks after your surgery. This is normal and to be expected. You can resume your normal day-to-day activities the day after your nose reduction rhinoplasty surgery, though many Dallas patients prefer to take two weeks off from social activities, including work or school, while they recover.

Schedule Your Nostril Reduction Rhinoplasty Surgery Consultation Today
