October 2017 – Although it is been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the brow since 2002, the FDA recently approved the use Botox for forehead lines. This is the third area of the face to attain FDA approval, with the other two areas being between the brows (glabellar lines) and the lines around the eyes, also known as “crow’s feet.”

Botox has long been used in the forehead by physicians, but now it is official. Nothing is more effective to smooth mild to even severe forehead lines. As well, Botox can even provide a non-surgical browlift when the right amount is injected above the brow.

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, over 7 million Botox treatments were performed in 2016. Botox is considered safe when used by experienced, certified injectors, and is very versatile. Small amounts can be used in other areas of the face to tweak a patients smile, bunny lines on the nose, smooth neckbands, and get rid of chin dimples in addition to the three FDA approved areas of use. It is even used medically to treat a number of ailments, including excessive sweating and neck pain.

“Botox works by relaxing the muscles in your forehead to smooth the lines and prevent them from worsening,” says Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Benjamin Bassichis. “They key to great results is to start early and remain consistent.”

For more information on Botox for forehead lines, we invite you to call 972.774.1777 for your complimentary cosmetic consultation.

A recent scientific article in the medical journal Cutis took a detailed look at the data regarding Microneedling Therapy With and Without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). According to data, microneedling continues to evolve with a range of applications in skin care. As well, as PRP has gained popularity, there has been increased interest in its utilization to amplify the regenerative effects of microneedling. Although the number of direct comparisons examining microneedling with and without PRP is limited, the available evidence indicates that the addition of PRP may improve cosmetic outcomes. These results have been demonstrated in the treatment of acne scars, but favorable effects may extend to other indications including skin texture and quality.

While microneedling alone can provide an excellent result in many instances, certain patients may benefit from increased improvement with the addition of PRP to their microneedling. We invite you to contact our office to see how microneedling therapy with or without Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can improve your facial appearance.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Dallas

Creating the right proportion to balance facial features is the focal point of any rhinoplasty. Dallas patients with a bulbous nose often want to achieve this by:

  • Reducing the width of their nose.
  • Shaping the tip of their nose.
  • Extending the tip of their nose.

In some cases, even a slight change can drastically improve your nose and the overall appearance of your face. Your facial plastic surgeon will review possible treatment options and guide you through a consultation to determine the best approach to your rhinoplasty.

How Will Rhinoplasty Fix My Bulbous Nose?

The tip of your nose is made of cartilage, tissue, and skin. Dallas patients who want to fix the bulbous tip of their nose can have a number of different procedures depending on the:

  • Desired result: Shape, size, and width of your nose.
  • Overall appearance: Your nose should strengthen and enhance other facial features. The optimal size will vary based on the patient.
  • Problem addressed: Having a bulbous nasal tip can mean a variety of things. Each patient will require a unique approach that suits the individual situation.

During a consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and receive answers to questions that you have about your rhinoplasty. You should always go in for a consultation before deciding on the facial plastic surgeon that’s right for you.

Our Approach

The techniques we use at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center are tailored to each patient’s needs. Cartilage can be added for patients who feel that their noses are too flat. Excess tissue can be removed from the nose if a patient finds a nose is too wide. We encourage you to come in for a consultation to find out more about how we can help you.

To schedule your rhinoplasty consultation, call our Dallas office at 972.774.1777.

Rhinoplasty Dallas

Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, involves reshaping the nose for either functional or cosmetic reasons. After surgery, most Dallas patients will need to wear a nasal splint and dressing to keep their nose in the right position for healing.

The Effect of Your Nasal Dressings on Sleeping Position

Dallas patients who undergo rhinoplasty often ask if a certain sleeping position will affect their result out of fear of jeopardizing their results. While it does help you to some extent, there is no evidence that changing position will affect your outcome. At least, not noticeably.

It Helps to Sleep on Your Back

Sleeping with your head propped up on pillows can help reduce swelling and relieve any congestion that you’re experiencing after rhinoplasty surgery. Most patients benefit from sleeping on their backs because they breathe better – similar to the way that it helps to prop yourself up with pillows when you have a cold. Sleeping propped up also prevents blood from collecting and causing your nose to bruise and swell.

If You Roll Over Your Rhinoplasty Results Will Not be Ruined

The point of a surgical dressing and nasal splint after rhinoplasty is to protect your nose from shifting while it heals. While you may feel uncomfortable if you turn to your side or stomach while you sleep, it is very unlikely to affect the results of your rhinoplasty. Even if you wake up with your nose pressed against the pillow.

The only downside is that you may experience more swelling and bruising, and more discomfort, as you heal. So when you go to sleep, try to stay on your back but don’t worry if you wake up in a different position.

Rhinoplasty Dallas

 

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures for teenagers. A safe and effective way to permanently reshape the nose, adolescents as young as 15 or 16 can safely undergo rhinoplasty. The reason for this age limitation is simple: that’s when your nose stops growing.

Can Older Patients Get Rhinoplasty?

Although it is common for older teenagers to undergo rhinoplasty, anyone can get this procedure as long as they are in good health. Dallas patients come in for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Facial trauma. Getting hit by an object or a car accident are two of the main causes of nasal trauma. The nose can break with relatively little force and may look differently after healing.
  • Treatment for deviated septum. Patients with a deviated septum may not experience relief with oral medication or nasal sprays. Over time, breathing problems can worsen and require a septoplasty to center the septum.
  • Changes related to aging. Like other parts of the body, your nose changes shape as you age. Large pores, age spots, and a drooping tip are all telltale signs of aging.

Dr. Bassichis is double board-certified as both a facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor) with years of experience performing rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and combined procedures. He approaches each nasal surgery from an aesthetic and functional perspective to improve aesthetic appearance and breathing when needed.

Rhinoplasty for Aging Nose

It’s normal for your nose to droop and develop age spots as you grow older. What surprises many older Dallas patients is how much lifting the nasal tip can change their appearance. By raising a droopy tip, injecting fat or filler into the nose, and performing laser treatments, patients can rejuvenate their face and help balance other features.

To schedule your rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Bassichis, call our Dallas office at 972.774.1777.

Facelift Dallas

Losing the firmness of our cheeks and gaining jowls is an unfortunate product of aging. As we hit our 40s or 50s, our facial features shift and may leave us nearly unrecognizable when we look in the mirror. A facelift tightens up the skin and removes fat to help you regain your youthful appearance, addressing unwanted features such as sagging cheeks and jowls.

Contouring the Chin and Neck

Jowls are on the top of the list of concerns when Dallas patients come in for a facelift consultation. This sagging skin and fat hangs from the chin and neck hiding the natural contours of your face and making many patients very self-conscious. While a facelift traditionally focuses on lifting the middle third of the face, Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis considers a patient’s entire facial anatomy. This includes revealing the natural shape of your face by removing unwanted fat and skin that cause jowls.

This move toward individualized treatment focuses on your specific problems. Rather than simply lifting the tissue, Dr. Bassichis will evaluate where to apply his advanced surgical techniques for a result that takes at least ten years off your face.

Restoring Firmness to Cheeks

Sagging cheeks are the result of excess skin and a loss of volume. A facelift will tighten the skin but not restore the firmness of your cheeks. For smooth and supple cheeks, Dr. Bassichis recommends treatment with injectable fillers or fat injections.

Injectable fillers work by replacing naturally occurring hyaluronic acid for firmer skin. Fat injections replace fat that has shifted down with new fat from your own body. Both techniques leave patients with more natural results by completely restoring the skin’s volume.

To schedule your facelift consultation, call our Dallas office at 972.774.1777.

Facelift Surgeon Dallas

A facelift removes excess skin and fat that causes Dallas patients to look older than they feel. What it won’t do is restore skin texture, volume, and remove age spots. By choosing a facial plastic surgeon who can help maintain results rather than performing a one-time procedure, you will keep your skin healthy and youthful long after surgery is over.

#1 Board-Certification

What many Dallas facelift patients don’t know is that a doctor can take a weekend seminar to perform plastic surgery. Though the price for these doctors seems to be right, the results are often less natural because they have little idea about the intricacies of facial anatomy. By selecting a facial plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, you can avoid any confusion about qualifications. The facial plastic surgeons who receive this board-certification have six years of specialized training to perform plastic surgery and focus on exceptional and ethical patient care.

At Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we believe that only board-certified facial plastic surgeons should perform plastic surgery. What’s more, Dr. Bassichis is double board-certified, as both a facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist).

#2 Exclusive Specialization in Facial Procedures

Most Dallas plastic surgeons offer facelifts. The problem is that they also offer breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and a host of other procedures. A facial plastic surgeon who specializes exclusively in facial procedures will focus on the fine details of surgery rather than trying to be a jack-of-all-trades and master of none.

#3 Natural Results

To achieve the most natural results, there are a number of minimally invasive procedures that can take your facelift from good to extraordinary. By restoring volume with fat injections or injectable fillers, you will not only eliminate wrinkles but attain firmer skin.

As part of our plan for skin health, the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers patients a host of procedures to enhance and maintain the results of your facelift. We believe that providing a wide range of skin care treatments after your facelift will ensure long-lasting results.

Facelift Surgeon Dallas

If you’ve decided to get a facelift surgery in Dallas, you probably have a ton of questions about what you might need to do to select the right facelift surgeon for you and prepare for your surgery. Read on as we help guide you on how to prepare for your facelift surgery.

•    Select the Right Doctor for You.

One of the most important things that you can do in preparing for facelift surgery in Dallas is selecting the right doctor. You want a doctor that you have good chemistry with, and more importantly, a doctor that is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery. As you are interviewing doctors during consultations, ask them several questions about their experience, including where they went to school and performed their internship and residency, why they got into the field of plastic surgery and what awards or recognitions they have. During your consultations, your doctor will examine your face to determine your skin elasticity and bone structure, to ensure you are a good candidate for facelift surgery. You will also discuss the specific procedures your doctor will be performing on your face, discuss your expectations for facelift surgery and get an idea of realistic results. Remember, when it comes to selecting a facelift surgeon, you are in charge.

•    Quit Smoking.

Most facelift surgeons will recommend that you quit smoking at least 2 weeks before your facelift surgery and 2 weeks after, as smoking alters blood flow, and may negatively impact your healing process. But, for many other health reasons, it’s best if you quit smoking altogether. If you need help quitting smoking, ask your facelift surgeon for help getting into a smoking cessation program.

•    Discuss Your Medical History with Your Facelift Surgeon.

Facelift surgery can be an intense procedure, and it’s important that you discuss your full medical history with your facelift surgeon before moving forward with your facelift. Your facelift surgeon may recommend some changes based on your medical history. For example, if you are prone to high blood pressure, he or she may prescribe you blood pressure medication before surgery.

•    Stop Taking Certain Medications.

Certain medications, such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, may increase your risk of bleeding during and after your facelift surgery. If you take any of these drugs or supplements on a daily basis, your Dallas facelift surgeon will recommend you stop taking them at least 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks after your facelift surgery.

•    Wash Your Hair.

To avoid infection, you’ll likely be instructed to wash your hair the night before and the morning of your facelift surgery.

•    Avoid Eating.

Because you’ll be receiving anesthesia for your facelift surgery, it’s important that you don’t eat anything after midnight the night before your surgery. You should also avoid consuming any alcohol for 48 hours before your facelift surgery.

•    Arrange for Transportation and Aftercare.

Because you’ll be receiving general anesthesia for your facelift surgery, you will be staying overnight at our facility. It is also best to arrange for someone to pick you up and drive you home after your surgery, and that you have someone stay with you during the first 1 or 2 critical days of recovery.

Now that you’re prepared for facelift surgery, what are you waiting for? Call Dr. Bassichis in his Dallas office at (972) 774-1777 to schedule a facelift consultation today.

Mini Facelift Dallas

You may have heard that there are two Facelift procedures – a Facelift and a Mini Facelift. And you may be wondering, “What are the differences between these two?” We here at the Dallas Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center have done all the research for you. So sit back, relax and read on has we explain the differences between a Facelift procedure and a Mini Facelift procedure.

What is a Facelift?

If you’re considering a facelift procedure in Dallas, you couldn’t have found a more skilled plastic surgeon than Dr. Bassichis, who is double board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that “turns back the hands of time” to provide you with a more youthful, beautiful face. The actual surgery involves rejuvenating the lower third of the face and neck by lifting the skin, providing volume restoration with facial filler injections and/or fat transfer and removing unnecessary, sagging skin from the face and neck. All incisions are hidden in folds or creases, so they are unseen and avoid hair loss or abnormal hairlines.

Dr. Bassichis doesn’t take a “one size fits all” approach to plastic surgery. He customizes every facelift procedure to provide the best results for each client. Additionally, his office has a Medi Spa, where you can continue your facial rejuvenation process after you’ve recovered from your Facelift procedure. At the Medi Spa, you can receive the latest technologies in lasers, light therapy and aesthetic technologies in a spa-like, yet medical facility where all procedures are done under the supervision of Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis.

What is a Mini Facelift?

Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis also performs Mini Facelifts, which he has coined, the MiniLiftTM.

A Mini Facelift is similar to a Facelift, but requires less surgery and thus, less recovery time. During a Mini Facelift surgery, the most visible signs of aging are addressed by eliminating excess fat, then tightening the skin of the neck and lower face. Dr. Bassichis’ Dallas spa, the Medi Spa, is also available to Mini Facelift patients after they have recovered from their procedures.

Am I a Candidate for a Facelift or a Mini Facelift?

Generally speaking, people with the following characteristics are good candidates for plastic surgery:

  • Are in good health, both medically and psychologically.
  • Do not smoke, or can promise to quit smoking two weeks before and two weeks after their plastic surgery procedure.
  • Are not obese.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Have friends or family who can provide support while you are healing from your procedure.
  • Have realistic expectations.

This last requirement for plastic surgery – having realistic expectations – is going to be one that Dr. Bassichis will go over with you in fine detail if you are considering between a Facelift and a Mini Face Lift. Do you want a complete youthful appearance? Are you in the early phases of aging and trying to get rid of unwanted wrinkles and sagging skin, but don’t see yourself as a candidate for a full Facelift? These are the types of questions that Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis will ask you as you decide between a Facelift and a Mini Facelift. 

Start the Discussion Today

If you’re ready to talk about Facelifts and Mini Facelifts, there’s no better time to start the process than today. Call Dr. Bassichis at his Dallas office at (972) 774-1777.
