Rhinoplasty DallasSometimes, Dallas men and women who consult with Dr. Bassichis about getting rhinoplasty surgery ask if the procedure will negatively affect their smile. After all, these residents still want to be able to show off their pearly whites every time someone makes them laugh or makes them happy! The reason for this concern, however, is valid. Since rhinoplasty surgery takes place so close to your upper lip, some who desire a nose job are concerned that they will have a stiff upper lip following their surgery, and be unable to smile the natural, normal way they used to before they had their procedure.

Thankfully, when you choose to work with double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis of Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, you don’t have to worry about this complication.* That’s because Dr. Bassichis has years of experience performing nose jobs, and he has the skill and technique to make sure he doesn’t interfere with your lip muscles.*

A Note About Your Recovery Time

While rhinoplasty patients don’t have to worry about long-term effects on their smile prior to surgery, it’s important to remember that nose jobs do have a recovery time period. Immediately after your surgery, you may notice that you have a less profound smile than usual. This is normal and to be expected, because your body is healing. Within a week or two of your surgery, however, any numbness that you feel on your nasal tip and upper lip should go away, and you can smile like normal!

A Special Note to Those Choosing Rhinoplasty for Nostril Reduction

Some Dallas residents specifically want a nose job because they feel their nostrils are too large for and unproportionate to the rest of their face. While Dr. Bassichis works diligently with these patients to help them achieve their desired results, he also takes a conservative approach. That’s because flaring nostrils are a natural side effect of many facial expressions, including smiling, and he wants your future smiles to look natural.

Sharing Your Questions with Dr. Bassichis

Whether you’re worried that rhinoplasty will affect your smile, or result in some other undesirable side effect, Dr. Bassichis encourages you to ask all your questions – even if you think they are silly – during your consultation with him. He’s there to help explain the nose job procedure to you and make sure you are completely certain you want to proceed before you are booked for a surgery day. So don’t be afraid – fire those questions away!

Face lift DallasHave you heard of the mini face lift? If so, you might be wondering if that, or a traditional face lift, is right for you and your unique situation. After all, every Dallas woman and man ages differently, and their surgical needs are different, too. So which one’s right for you?

A Mini Face Lift Explained

A mini face lift is a shorter and less invasive elective plastic surgery compared to a traditional face lift. Dallas patients often choose a mini face lift if they are just beginning to show signs of aging on their face, such as slight jowling, minimal wrinkles, and sagging of the facial skin and neck.

Since a mini face lift is less invasive, it also means that smaller incisions are used during the procedure. Of course, your incisions will be hidden in your hairline and underneath your chin, but since they are smaller incisions, there’s less downtime and your recovery from the surgery will be faster.

One important factor to remember if you are interested in a mini face lift, though, is that since it is such a less invasive procedure, it’s results aren’t meant to last a lifetime. But if you’re in your 30s and are showing signs of aging that make you look a decade or so older, getting a mini face lift now may postpone your need to get a traditional face lift later.*

A Traditional Face Lift Explained

A traditional face lift is the procedure you’re probably thinking of when you hear the term “face lift.” It involves making incisions in a patient’s hairline up, around and below the ear, as well as underneath the chin. From these incisions, Dr. Bassichis can eliminate deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth, tighten up your skin, and remove unwanted sagging skin around your lower face and neck.

A traditional face lift is usually recommended for patients who are at least 40 and tends to have longer lasting results than a mini face lift. But remember, the aging process never stops. Even if you get a face lift at 40, you may require a revision face lift later in life.*

What’s the Right Choice for Me?

While your age might help clue you in on whether or not a mini face lift or traditional face lift is right for you, the best way to determine which procedure you should proceed with is by consulting with Dr. Bassichis of Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center. A double-certified plastic surgeon who works exclusively on plastic surgery facial procedures, he has the skill and experience to know what procedures will work best for individual patients.
