Facelift Surgery DallasMany Dallas women and men feel that their faces are aging faster than they actually are. That’s a totally normal experience! In fact, a variety of factors such as sun exposure, genetics, or smoking can cause your face to age at a faster rate than your actual age. While we’ve yet to discover the true Fountain of Youth, many patients of Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Surgery Center feel that he has the “magic” touch of helping patients regain their youthful appearance and look great for their age!

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is an elective plastic surgery procedure chosen by many Dallas area residents to address issues of the lower third of the face. With this procedure, Dr. Bassichis can:

  • Reshape the lower portion of the face to remove excess and unwanted skin that makes you look older than you actually
  • Remove deep creases around the mouth and nose, making you appear wrinkle-free!
  • Address hanging skin under the chin and in the neck often called jowls.

How Do I Know if I’m a Good Candidate?

Dr. Bassichis carefully screens potential Dallas patients to not only make sure he can provide them with results that make a difference, but that anyone he operates on is healthy enough for elective plastic surgery. This means in order to become a patient you must:

  • Share your full medical and mental health records.
  • Pass a pre-op appointment from your general physician.
  • Be in good, overall health.

Will People Be Able to Know I’ve Had Work Done?

Dr. Bassichis aims at making you look like the best version of you, so people won’t know you’ve undergone a facelift unless you tell them. While they’ll likely notice your more youthful look, they may think you’re just using some special anti-aging cream that Hollywood celebrities swear by!

Best of yet, there will be no telltale scars on your face to tip others off that you’ve had elective surgery. When performing a facelift, Dr. Bassichis makes incisions:

  • Under your chin to address loose cheeks and jowls.
  • Above and around your ear in your hairline to tighten up your mid-face.

What Will My Surgery Day Be Like?

Many people who choose to get facelifts have never undergone surgery before, so they’re understandably nervous and curious about what surgery day will entail. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect:

  • You’ll arrive on surgery day having fasted at least 12 hours, so you can have general anesthesia administered for your surgery (which puts you completely asleep).
  • You’ll initially be called back to a pre-op room, where you’ll be prepared for your procedure by a team of nurses and medical professionals.
  • Once it’s go-time, you’ll be wheeled back to the operating room.
  • The anesthesiologist will insert an IV to administer general anesthesia. You’ll be completely asleep in seconds.
  • Bassichis will get to work on your personalized surgery.
  • You’ll be transferred to a post-op room, where you’ll be monitored by nurses and medical professionals until they’ve determined you’re safe to go home.
  • You’ll be driven home by a friend or family member because you can’t drive after receiving general anesthesia.

Rhinoplasty DallasIf you haven’t already learned through your online research, you should know that rhinoplasty is one of the most common elective plastic surgery procedures not only performed in Dallas, but throughout the United States. And in fact, it’s performed for so many different reasons – from elongated noses to reducing the size of nostrils to functional rhinoplasty – that no two patients have the same treatment plan for their surgery.

Still, the idea of having one’s nose worked on can be a little anxiety producing to some patients- especially since the nose is not only such a prominent facial feature but so important for breathing. During his consultations with potential patients, Dr. Bassichis is often asked how a patient’s nose will be molded during rhinoplasty surgery. The answer – it all depends on what you are trying to achieve.

Nose Modeling for Removing a Nasal Hump

Some Dallas residents seek out Dr. Bassichis’ skill and experience because they have an unwanted nasal hump. Whether they don’t like the way it makes them look head-on, or they dislike their facial profile, these patients simply want their nasal hump gone.

Molding the nose for removing a nasal hump is a very unique process. First, Dr. Bassichis gently shaves the hump down, making it unrecognizable. Then he performs a procedure called lateral osteoplasty – also known as breaking the nasal bone – so that the exposed open roof from shaving the nasal hump down can heal.

Molding Your Nose to Improve the Look of Your Nasal Tip

The nasal tip is an important feature of your nose, and some patients are unhappy with the way their nasal tips naturally looks. Rhinoplasty can surgically change this. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, Dr. Bassichis may lift your nasal tip, round it out, or narrow it.

Slimming Down a Wide Nose

Sometimes, Dallas residents feel their nose is just too wide for their other facial features, and they want it to be surgically corrected so that it’s more narrow and proportionate with the rest of their face. In this case, Dr. Bassichis will perform a procedure called alar baser reduction, which means that he narrows down wide nostrils by removing tissue in between them. Next, he breaks wide nasal bones, if present, to make them appear more narrow. Finally, depending on your desired goals, Dr. Bassichis may even extend the nose to give it a narrower appearance.

The Many Ways a Nose Can be Molded During Rhinoplasty

As you can see, since there are so many different things rhinoplasty can address, there’s no one way a nose is modeled for the surgery. It all depends on the aesthetic goals you are trying to accomplish. If you have questions about the molding and surgical techniques that will be used during your nose job, just ask. Dr. Bassichis will be happy to explain them to you so that you are fully informed about your upcoming procedure.
