The modern approach to cosmetic rejuvenation seeks to emulate youthful, full facial features. Dr. Bassichis' holistic approach to facial rejuvenation incorporates millenium anti-aging technologies, including facial fillers, to provide natural youthful results that allow his patients' own beauty to shine. Facial fillers are a wonderful way to achieve maximum cosmetic results with minimum recovery time.
There are numerous facial injectable products available which can be used to restore the facial volume and fill out wrinkled or uneven areas of the face. For the safety of his patients, Dr. Bassichis uses only FDA approved products on his patients, including Restylane, Perlane, Collagen, Juvederm, Sculptra, Hylaform, Artefill, Radiesse and fat transfer. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Bassichis can recommend which facial filler or fillers can achieve the enhancement you desire. The exact injectable or filler used is individualized for each patient, based on the location of injection, the desired effect, and longevity. As well, for optimized results Dr. Bassichis personally performs all injectable treatments himself. The result you'll see is a restoration of younger, smoother facial contours without an invasive surgical procedure. Facial filler treatments may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a chemical peel, or a surgical procedure, such as a facelift.
Frequently used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips and improve "lipstick lines," facial fillers are also highly successful in reducing crows' feet, laugh lines, wrinkles around the lips, nose and mouth, nasolabial folds, and lines on the cheeks and forehead. They can also plump out hollow cheeks and undereye areas, reshape the chin or nose tip, or fill acne scars. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face.
Dr. Bassichis is a nationally recognized expert in facial injectables having written chapters and articles on the subject. As well, he is one of the elite doctors selected for both the Medicis Advisory Council (producers of Restylane) and Allergan's National Education Committee (the makers of BOTOX®). These committees are composed of distinguished physicians skilled in the art of administering Restylane and BOTOX injections. As well, Dr. Bassichis serves as a regional and national trainer teaching other health professionals how to inject BOTOX, Restylane and Sculptra. The Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center is one of the select practices chosen to carry the FDA approved permanent filler, Artefill.

Why do we need volume restoration?
As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling and chewing. This aging process also leads to loss of fullness in the face seen as a loss of cheek fullness, the appearance of sagging lower cheeks and lips (nasolabial folds), the thinning of lips, and the appearance of hollows in the temples. When the facial volume that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped-up diminishes over time, leaving laugh lines, smile lines, facial creases and hollowness remain. We are happy to discuss facial volume restoration with you at your next consultation with Dr. Bassichis.
