Beautiful Brunette Female Smiling Looking Down With Chin To ShoulderIf you’re showing signs of aging on your face, but you’re on the fence about getting a facelift, we’re here to provide you with some information that may help you make your decision. Here are 5 benefits of having the procedure performed by Dallas facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center.

  1. Look Up to 10 Years Younger (With Results That Look Natural, Not Windblown)

One of the most common questions that Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis is asked during facelift consultations is how much younger the surgery can make a patient appear. While individual results will always vary, the skills and techniques that Dr. Bassichis uses can make you appear as much as 10 years younger than you actually are!*

Dr. Bassichis works diligently to make sure you have results that look natural. He knows that no Dallas plastic surgery patient wants obvious signs that tell the world they’ve had work done. He also knows you want to avoid the “windblown” look. With his advanced technical skills and artistic eye, Dr. Bassichis is able to provide patients with results that look natural and not surgical.*

  1. Fill in Sunken Cheeks

One of the most common complaints among patients desiring a facial plastic surgery is that their cheeks have hollowed out and sunken in. Through the combined use of facial fillers and specialized surgical techniques, Dr. Bassichis can add volume to the cheeks and tighten the surrounding skin to help them have a more youthful appearance.

  1. Eliminate Wrinkles on Your Mid to Lower Face

Nobody likes wrinkles. But with aging, they’re pretty much unavoidable. However, surgery can eliminate the wrinkling you’ve accumulated over the years on your mid to lower face. If wrinkles reappear in between your need for an additional surgery approximately 10 years after your first one, solutions like routine BOTOX®, laser treatments and/or chemical peels are a great maintenance option.

  1. Get Rid of Jowls That Hang Off of Your Jawline

Sometimes, one of the biggest complaints Dr. Bassichis hears from his Dallas patients is that they have jowls hanging below their jawline. Many of these patients don’t realize that a facelift can address this issue, too.

By making a small incision underneath your chin, Dr. Bassichis has the access he needs to remove these jowls from your face, so you have less facial drooping.

  1. Feel More Confident with a More Youthful Look That Reflects How You Really Feel Inside

Probably the best benefit of getting a facelift is that it helps you look as young as you feel inside. Many of Dr. Bassichis’ patients express that their outer appearance just doesn’t reflect how active and young they truly are – both mentally, physically, and spiritually. Facial plastic surgery lets the true you shine through so that you look as great as you feel on the inside!

Close Up Of Female Face Showing Wrinkles Around the EyesThere are some common misconceptions in the Dallas area about what a facelift can and can’t do. It probably has something to do with the fact that the procedure itself includes the word “face,” making many assume the surgery addresses the entire face. This often causes men and women to think that wrinkling around their eyes will also be taken care of.

Unfortunately, this is an incorrect assumption. However, all hope isn’t lost! Continue reading to learn more about what areas of the face a facelift addresses, and about your options for addressing wrinkling around the eyes.

What Areas of the Face Does a Facelift Correct?

A facelift performed by Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Bassichis is only designed to address the mid to lower face and addresses wrinkling and lost volume in these areas.

The surgery begins with Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center performing incisions in your hairline. The incision starts up above your ear, then goes around the back of your ear.

Through this incision, Dr. Bassichis has adequate access to address any facial wrinkling or lost volume you are experiencing in your mid to lower face. Wrinkles are moved, sunken cheeks are filled in, and patients are left with a more youthful facial appearance.

Additional Procedures to Make You Look More Youthful

Of course, as many Dallas residents know, the aging process doesn’t just affect your mid to lower face. As you age, it’s common to experience wrinkling around your eyes, especially underneath your eyes. But, there are a variety of cosmetic procedures available to address wrinkling around the eyes.

Getting Rid of Wrinkles Around Your Eyes

If you have wrinkling around your eyes, it’s likely that you won’t be satisfied with just a facelift. You’ll want your eye wrinkling to be addressed, too.

Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic options for addressing this exact issue. These include:

BOTOX® injections can be performed in our office by Dr. Bassichis, and other facial and laser treatments can be performed by our Licensed Aestheticians and Laser Technicians.

If your case of wrinkling around the eyes warrants a surgical solution, this surgery can be combined with other facial plastic surgeries, so you only have 1 surgical event.

Consult with Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to Discover Which Options Are Right for You

No matter how many YouTube videos you watch or before and after galleries you look at, it’s impossible for Dallas residents to self-determine which procedure they’ll need in order to address the wrinkling around their eyes. The best way to get an accurate treatment plan is to visit an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Bassichis will listen to all your facial concerns. Based on your problem areas and desired outcomes, he’ll suggest a comprehensive treatment plan to help provide you with the best possible solution.

Blond Woman Showing Facelift Results Touching Hand to Bottom of ChinMany Dallas residents experience facial wrinkling and lost facial volume, such as sunken cheeks, as they age. It’s (unfortunately) a completely normal and to-be-expected part of the natural aging process. And it’s exactly why so many locals turn to Dr. Bassichis for a facelift.

A common question about the procedure is whether or not the results from surgery will be permanent. Continue reading to learn just what you can expect when you get a facelift from Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis.

Expected Facelift Results

Generally speaking, Dallas residents can expect to look about 10 years younger when they opt for a facelift to address their facial wrinkling and lost facial volume. And with Dr. Bassichis’ technical skill and artistic eye, he’s able to perform this procedure in a manner that provides you with results that look natural, not windblown, so that nobody will know you’ve had work done unless you tell them. They’ll likely just think you’ve found a “magic” facial cream and you aren’t sharing your secret!

Dallas patients should know, though, that while results from this surgery can be long-lasting – up to a decade and sometimes even a few years longer – they aren’t permanent. This isn’t because the procedure fails, but because even if you have a facelift, the aging process (unfortunately) doesn’t stop. Eventually, you can expect to experience additional facial wrinkling and lost facial volume, despite having had surgery to correct these issues in the past.

Strategies to Get the Best Benefits from Facial Plastic Surgery

To extend your results and delay your need for a follow-up surgery, Dr. Bassichis provides his Dallas patients with a series of tips when planning facial plastic surgery. These include:

  • Getting a mini-lift in your 30s or 40s
  • Getting a full lift in your 50s, rather than your 60s, which may delay your need for a follow-up procedure in the future*
  • Undergoing a series of routine facial procedures after your surgery to fight off new signs of aging, including routine BOTOX® injections, facial fillers, and laser treatments and/or chemical peels

Learning More About Your Options

Whether you need facial plastic surgery now, or can delay it for a few years, you won’t be able to determine the best course of treatment on your own – no matter how much online research you do. Only at a consultation with a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, during which he will examine your face and listen to your problem areas and desired outcomes, will allow you to walk out knowing your best course of treatment.

While some patients may think surgery is immediately needed, they’re often surprised to learn that a series of injections with dermal fillers or BOTOX® or facial peels can provide them with results they’ll be pleased with, that can also delay the need for surgery to a future date.

To learn what treatment plan is best for you, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Dallas today by calling (972) 774-1777.

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.

Face lift DallasMany Dallas women and men who are unhappy with the aging look of their face inquire with Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to see if a face lift is right for them. And one of their most common questions is, “What parts of the face do a face lift correct?”

While some patients incorrectly assume that a face lift addresses the entire face, there are actually a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures to address different parts of the face. A face lift is designed to address the lower third of the face, by:

  • Eliminating deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
  • Addressing sagging or sunken cheeks.
  • Removing excess skin from the neck and lower face, often referred to as jowls.

Here is an explanation about how Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis achieves these goals when performing a face lift.

Addressing Wrinkles and Sagging or Sunken Cheeks

To address the lower third of the face, Dr. Bassichis performs a hairline incision in his patients up, around and below their ears. This “hidden” incision gives Dr. Bassichis access to the skin needed to tighten up loose skin and remove unwanted, sagging skin.

Removing Jowls

For a face lift, Dr. Bassichis also makes hidden incisions in his Dallas patients to remove unwanted jowls around the lower face or the neck. By making a small incision at the bottom of the chin, he is able to gain the access needed to remove these unwanted facial features.

Am I a Candidate for a Face Lift?

Dallas men and women desiring a face lift surgery at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center must meet certain criteria that Dr. Bassichis has set for his patients. These include:

  • Having the issues that a face lift can address
  • Being in good overall general health, and providing access to your medical records
  • Being in good mental health
  • Passing a pre-op exam for elective surgery before your procedure

Your Experience on Surgery Day

When you arrive for your face lift surgery, you’ll have needed to fast for at least 12 hours. This is because both surgeons and anesthesiologists alike feel it is unsafe to perform elective procedures on patients with a full stomach, as general anesthesia may cause nausea, and give you the risk for aspirating in your lungs.

When it’s time to go backstage, you’ll first be called to a pre-op room where nurses and medical technicians will prep you for your face lift. When it’s go-time, you’ll be wheeled to the operating room. The anesthesiologist will insert an IV in your arm to administer general anesthesia, and you’ll be asleep in seconds.

After your asleep, Dr. Bassichis will begin his work on your face lift, making the hidden incisions we discussed to give you a new, rejuvenated facial look. After your surgery is complete and you have been stitched back up, you’ll be transferred to a post-op room where you’ll awaken and be monitored until it’s determined that it’s safe for you to go home. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home as patients who receive general anesthesia are not allowed to drive the same day.

Face lift DallasIf you’re a Dallas man or woman who is interested in getting a face lift, it’s likely that you want to make sure you’re going to get a good return on your investment. After all, not only do you have to undergo elective plastic surgery but since face lifts aren’t covered by insurance, they’re an out-of-pocket expense, too. You want to make sure that you’re choosing to undergo the procedure at an ideal time in your life when your results are likely to last the longest. It makes complete sense!

Even though you might be showing signs of aging in your face earlier in your life, plastic surgeons like Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center – where he exclusively performs facial plastic surgery procedures – recommends that Dallas men and women wait until they are at least in their early to mid-forties before electing for the elective plastic surgery procedure. The reason? This is the ideal age to ensure that you’ll have the most long-lasting results!

What if I’m Too Young for a Face Lift, But Feel Like I Look Older Than I Am?

If you feel like your face looks older than you are, but haven’t quite hit the big 4-0, there are still other, non-surgical options for you to look more youthful and address your problem areas. At Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Bassichis works with younger patients on a variety of dermal fillers and injections, all designed to help you look like the best version of you. You can always consult with Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to see which dermal filler might be the right solution for the problem areas you want to address.

Am I Too Old to Get a Face Lift?

Some patients beyond their 40s fear they’ve waited too long to get a face lift procedure. That’s not always the case. If you’ve had a face lift in the past, but feel like time has negated your results, you can always get a revision face lift. Additionally, if you’ve never had a face lift before, combining a variety of procedures such as a face lift and brow lift may give you the results you desire.*

Talk to Dr. Bassichis at Any Age

Regardless of your age, if you’re unhappy with your facial appearance, Dr. Bassichis can likely come up with an individualized treatment plan for you. Whether you want to address wrinkles, sunken cheeks, jowls or other facial issues, there are several surgical and non-surgical procedures that may be right for your unique case.

The only way to know what procedure or combination of procedures is right for you is to schedule an initial consultation at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center. When you do this, Dr. Bassichis will perform a full facial examination, listen to your problem areas, and design a unique treatment plan, just for you.

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.

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.

If you’re interested in this elective plastic surgery, call Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center today to schedule a consultation 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.
