There are innumerable studies of the merits of plastic surgery many of which focus on subjective concerns including self-esteem and satisfaction. However another study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal looked at the effect of plastic surgery on depression, but used an interesting indication of success: the use of antidepressants. Involving 362 patients who had cosmetic surgery over a 1-year interval, according to study findings approximately one-third of patients who took antidepressants and underwent cosmetic plastic surgery discontinued these medications after the operation. Furthermore, 98 percent of patients reported a marked improvement in self-esteem following surgery. Eighty-seven percent of patients reported satisfaction following their surgery, including improvements in their overall body image.  The patients also reported less negative body image emotions in social situations. While plastic surgery cannot be the only variable, it can clearly be beneficial to the appearance and the psychological status of patients. However, reflecting on this study in relation to our practice here at ADVANCED, we often feel that it is not only the  fabulous results, but that the positive interactions between our compassionate surgeon and patients and the genuine support  of our amazing staff can truly change the quality of a patient’s life forever.

Beautifully yours,

Does everyone remember the 1998 Oscar Awards where Actor Roberto Benigni joyously climbed over seats (and people!) to excitedly accept his award? Well, he won for an incredible movie entitled “Life is Beautiful” which is an unforgettable tale set in the 1940’s where a man played by Benigni attempts to save his family and survive the horrors of a Jewish Concentration Camp. But the essential messages of the movie are that love, family and imagination conquer all and are the true secret to a Beautiful Life.

At ADVANCED we think a lot about beautiful lives – especially the lives of our patients who we help with everything from skin cancer reconstruction to cosmetic facial plastic surgery.

ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center, led by Dr. Benjamin Bassichis, offers patients high-quality elective procedures. We focus on the face, head, and neck with services such as facelift surgery. Dallas patients rely on us because of our experience, targeted expertise, and excellence in care.

ADVANCED provides a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures to decrease signs of aging and to improve the attractiveness of the patient’s appearance. Two of the most common are our facelift and mini facelift.

Dallas patients sometimes come to us knowing which specific procedure they would like. Others want to explore both options before making a choice. Below, learn more about these two procedures.

Facelift Surgery

You may have seen friends, family, or people in social settings who look as though they have “had work done.” Unfortunately, with an unskilled facelift surgeon, Dallas patients get results that look taut, drawn, or pulled out of place.

As a knowledgeable and expert medical practitioner, Dr. Bassichis takes the time and uses the skill required to provide natural-looking results. His aim in facelift surgery is not to change the way Dallas patients look. Instead, his goal is to restore their appearance to its more youthful state.

With a facelift procedure, Dr. Bassichis helps Dallas patients rejuvenate the lower third of the face. He uses the procedure to create greater support for the underlying facial tissues. This moves the facial features into their natural, more youthful state. He also removes excess skin, which can otherwise cause sagging and drooping. The result is a smoother and younger-looking contour.

Mini Facelift

Dallas patients may wish to address lines and wrinkles in their lower face and neck. However, they may not want to invest in the time and cost of a full facelift, especially if they can achieve great-looking results with a more narrow procedure.

In these cases, the mini facelift may be a better fit. Dr. Bassichis uses minimally-invasive and clinically-proven techniques in this procedure to address heavy jowls, wrinkles, and loose skin. As with a facelift, Dallas patients can gain a significant increase in attractiveness by improving the most visible signs of aging.

Often, Dr. Bassichis combines the mini facelift with other procedures for Dallas patients, such as fat transfer, custom filler injections, facial implants, and neck lifts. He will discuss all of the options available and help the patient choose the one that fits with his / her comfort level and goals.

Making the Decision

By scheduling an initial consultation with ADVANCED, you’ll have an opportunity to talk with Dr. Bassichis and his staff about the option that best fits your needs. For some Dallas patients, a mini facelift and a combination of other procedures can provide the impact that they are seeking. Others are great candidates for Dallas facelift surgery because of the rejuvenating and lasting effects it provides.

The MiniLift™ procedure by ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center provides patients with a great alternative for refreshing their appearance. With our mini facelift, Dallas men and women can get natural-looking and attractive results with a shorter recovery period.

Whether it’s due to gravity, genetics, or the passage of time, the lower face and neck can gain weight and develop loose skin that detracts from your appearance. Through a mini facelift, Dallas patients can erase the jowls and wrinkles that appear in these areas. Learn more below about the procedure, ADVANCED, and our lead surgeon, Benjamin Bassichis.

Minimally Invasive. Beautiful Results.

Dr. Bassichis’ procedure improves visible signs of aging by removing excess fat and tightening loose skin. He combines the surgical approach with non-surgical techniques that add volume and restore youthfulness throughout your face.

The entire procedure is customized to meet your personal needs. As a Dallas mini facelift patient, you will begin with an in-office consultation to discuss what you hope to achieve through surgery. Dr. Bassichis will talk with you about the best approach to reach your goals. As an experienced surgeon specializing in the face, neck, and head, he will also set your expectations for what is possible through surgical and non-surgical measures. Your satisfaction and safety are his priorities.

Depending on your health, you may choose to have the procedure in our fully-equipped surgical suite under local anesthesia and sedation. Alternatively, you may have the procedure at an accredited outpatient facility with the option for nurse-monitored overnight stay. Both services include a highly-trained surgical staff and physician anesthesiologist to ensure your comfort.

Dr. Bassichis is a double-board certified physician with expertise in all areas of facial cosmetic surgery. His nuanced and personalized approach to the mini facelift provides Dallas patients with natural-looking results that leave them looking refreshed and younger.

Support Services

Dr. Bassichis is recognized as a national expert in FDA-approved facial injectables such as Restylane and Perlane as well as non-surgical therapies that soften facial wrinkles, such as Botox. Facial fillers can restore cheek and under-eye volume; minimize wrinkles around the lips, nose and mouth; and reshape the chin or nose tip.

Dr. Bassichis uses these products to target areas of concern that go beyond the scope of the mini facelift. This allows Dallas patients to reap many of the benefits that come with a complete facelift procedure. It also lets them maintain their appearance over time in a non-surgical way.

Choosing the Right Option

The initial consultation with our offices gives you a chance to discuss both the mini facelift and facelift. Dallas patients can ask questions of our staff and Dr. Bassichis, get information about what to expect in our care, and make an informed and confident decision.

If you are looking for a less-invasive medical option that can smooth, tighten, and improve your appearance, contact ADVANCED by calling us at (972) 774-1777 or emailing us at

With plastic surgery, Dallas patients should understand that a variety of factors affect the method and results of a procedure, including:

  • The patient’s goals.
  • The physical makeup of the patient’s features.
  • The training and expertise of the surgeon.

One other important factor is the approach that their doctor uses in plastic surgery. Dallas patients who have the same procedure with two different physicians may have completely different experiences due to the way their medical practice works and the techniques and training of the surgeon.

That’s why it’s so important to choose the right physician for your needs. Double board certified Dr. Benjamin Bassichis and the professional team at ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center understand that the relationship between a medical provider and patient is a personal one. Below, we describe our approach to so you can see how we support your needs.

He performs these procedures on a daily basis, and his years of training help patients get life-changing results and a lifetime of facial health.

Dr. Bassichis is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology in Head and Neck Surgery, American College of Surgeons, and the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. His elite post-graduate experience focused exclusively on facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and he now teaches other physician about his field as clinical at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center and the Veterans Administration Hospital in Dallas.

Natural and Beautiful Results

At ADVANCED, we help patients achieve the change they want in a heathy, clinically proven way. Dr. Bassichis’ comprehensive approach to facial plastic surgery integrates a variety of techniques to achieve significant results.

Our Dallas patients get procedures customized to their unique facial structure, goals, and medical needs. With exquisite attention to detail, Dr. Bassichis ensures that changes are in harmony with existing facial features for the most optimal results.

Often, Dr. Bassichis will recommend a strategy that includes surgical and non-surgical techniques. As a nationally-recognized educator and researcher in Botox, Dyport, Restylane, Sculptra, and Juvederm, he combines techniques in facial plastic surgery, laser, and injectables to achieve natural and beautiful results that still maintain each of our patients’ unique appearances.

Safety is Our Priority

When they choose plastic surgery, Dallas patients need confidence that their physician is focused on their well-being. Our goal is to ensure optimized safety for our patients, better outcomes, minimized complications, and to give each patient the best opportunity for an uneventful and healthy recovery.  ADVANCED and Dr. Bassichis ensure the comfort and safety of patients in several ways.

Dr. Benjamin Bassichis is recognized by past patients and medical colleagues for his skill as a facelift surgeon. Dallas men and women turn to his services for high-quality care and excellent results.

Dr. Bassichis differs in many ways from the typical facelift surgeon. Dallas cosmetic physicians generally often many procedures outside of facial operations, such as breast augmentations and tummy tucks. However, Dr. Bassichis focuses exclusively on the face, head, and neck. As a result, he is able to…

  • Stay connected to the latest in technology and techniques.
  • Offers patients more experience in their specific procedure.
  • Provide a more nuanced approach and attractive results.

Dr. Bassichis and the team at ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center offer patients lifelong care, from maintenance procedures in their twenties to complete rejuvenation in their fifties. Read more about these services.


Through Dr. Bassichis’ work as a facelift surgeon, Dallas patients can completely refresh their appearance in a natural-looking and attractive way. His facelift focuses on lifting and repositioning the facial tissues to their naturally-occurring position. His technique moves these features upwards and not outwards. This helps patients avoid the overly-tight appearance that low-quality facelifts create.

To provide the best results, Dr. Bassichis uses custom facial filler injections and / or fat transfer to restore volume. Over time, the material in our faces moves downwards, making the upper face seem more hollow and the lower part heavier. Facial re-volumization helps create more beautiful results.


Literally a mini facelift, Dallas patients often choose the MiniLift as less-invasive alternative to the full facelift. Dr. Bassichis offers the service to people who want to address jowls, wrinkles, and loose skin in the lower face and neck. It’s best for those who want a significant improvement but prefer a faster recovery than the traditional work of a facelift surgeon.

Dallas patients who choose the MiniLift can expect the same level of care and support as with any of our procedures. Dr. Bassichis can customize the anesthesia to meet your needs and health requirements, and the procedure can take place in our state-of-the-art surgical suite or at a fully-accredited outpatient facility. Board-certified physician anesthesiologists perform all outpatient surgical center anesthesia.

Non-surgical Treatment

Patients who have slight but noticeable signs of aging or blemishes may seek less invasive procedures. ADVANCED’s facility offers the latest generation of lasers, light therapy and aesthetic technologies.

Our equipment can correct skin imperfections such as sun-damaged skin and rosacea. We can also improve facial skin tone and lines, address pigmented lesions, facial veins, and unwanted hair.

Also, Dr. Bassichis is a leading expert in facial injectables, and he personally performs each treatment to develop relationships with patients and to advise them about future facial care.

Whether you have limited needs or are interested in working with a facelift surgeon, we invite you to contact our offices. Dallas patients can reach us at (972) 774-1777 or

If you are just beginning your search, you’ve probably found that there are many options for a facial plastic surgeon. Dallas doctors often offer facelift, rhinoplasty (“nose jobs”), and other services as part of a cosmetic practice.

However, with each facial plastic surgeon, Dallas patients have to evaluate whether they will receive the right care and quality. Any surgery that deals with the face is a significant undertaking. You should take the time to learn about your doctor’s experience, work, and approach before making your decision.

Dr. Benjamin Bassichis specializes as a Dallas facial plastic surgeon. Learn below why patients rely on him for the best results possible.


Dr. Bassichis has spent years providing patients with medical services that prioritize safety, comfort, and beauty. He is board certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. A thought-leader in the field, Dr. Bassichis has authored more than 50 scientific chapters and papers.

Physicians and medical professionals receive training from Dr. Bassichis in areas that include facial injectables. He is a member of the National Educational Faculty for Botox, and he provides doctors with ongoing education in techniques such as Restylane, Sculptra, and Juvederm.

Dr. Bassichis leads ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center, a medical facility that also serves as a regional teaching facility for cosmetic laser companies. The combination of extensive academic training and a commitment to the latest technology makes Dr. Bassichis a provider of choice.


Many doctors have advanced training in plastic surgery. However, as with any field of medicine, the greater the degree of specialization, the more experience and knowledge you can expect.

As a facial plastic surgeon, Benjamin Bassichis focuses on Dallas patients who require facial, head, and neck procedures. Many other plastic surgeons offer a diverse range of services. As a result, they do far fewer operations in these areas.

Dr. Bassichis brings thousands of hours of experience to every procedure as well as an understanding of potential challenges and solutions. This allows him to sculpt beautiful facial features that flow naturally with the patient’s appearance.


As a patient, the approach your doctor takes may be just as important as any other factor. Not every facelift, rhinoplasty, or browlift is the same because each doctor prioritizes different aspects of the medical process.

Dr. Bassichis wants you to know what matters to him:

  • A holistic approach. He aims to provide natural-looking surgical results that allow your beauty to shine without appearing “done” or artificial.
  • Long-term relationships with patients. Whatever stage of life you are in, we want to guide your aesthetic choices from now into the future.
  • Patient safety and comfort. Medical doctors and licensed technicians support our anesthetic procedures, and Dr. Bassichis uses only proven techniques.

How can rhinoplasty help me?

Dallas rhinoplasty surgery is among the most common plastic surgery procedures, and the team at ADVANCED has extensive experience in providing patients with excellent results and patient care. If you are unhappy with the way that your nose looks, rhinoplasty may help. Dr. Bassichis can improve a nose that is too large or that has bumps along the ridge. He can also widen or narrow the shape, change the appearance of the nostrils, and give the nose greater balance among the other facial features.

With rhinoplasty surgery, Dallas patients can also fix problems that may be causing difficulty in breathing or sleeping. These may be the result of a deviated septum or broken nose, and the symptoms can be addressed separately or along with an aesthetic improvement.

Am I a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

With realistic expectation and good physical and psychological health, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery. There is no upper age limitation on rhinoplasty surgery; Dallas men and women may have the procedure so long as they are physically and mentally healthy. However, Dr. Bassichis will typically advise adolescents to wait until they have completed their growth phase or until they have reached emotional maturity.

Can I choose my new nose?

At ADVANCED, Dr. Bassichis utilizes  advanced techniques in digital photography and computer imagery to give you an idea of what to expect after your surgery. These tools help you visualize the way your face will look and discuss your preferences and goals in greater detail.

Dr. Bassichis uses preoperative planning to explain what you should expect with a healthy outcome as well as what surgery can’t accomplish. An open and honest dialogue allows patients to make the best decision possible and facilitates a healthy and enjoyable surgeon-patient relationship.

There are many reasons that people decide to have a facelift. Dallas’ Dr. Benjamin Bassichis and the team at ADVANCED Facial Plastic Surgery Center talk with patients every day about the choices they are making. Our consultation helps them to clarify their thinking; learn what is and what is not possible through surgery; and identify surgical and non-surgical options for improving their appearance.

Learn more below about making a change. Then, get in touch to discuss our work.

The Impact of a Dallas Facelift

If you are like many patients, the decision to have a facelift has a lot to do with what you see when you look in the mirror. This is the face that friends, family, and colleagues recognize when they look at you. It’s also the appearance that you most connect with your identity.

It’s for this reason that people often have reservations about getting a facelift. Dallas patients are concerned about making alterations to their appearance. They don’t want to make a change for the worse. They also may be afraid of changing their appearance so drastically that they no longer recognize themselves.

There are some good and important reasons to have the surgery as well. Namely, the appearance you see in the mirror may not be who you really are. Inside, you feel young, energetic, and full of possibility. The face looking back at you may have lines, wrinkles, excess skin, or an aged and tired appearance.

You don’t want to change who you are. Instead, you want to improve your appearance so that it matches the person inside without completely altering your physical identity. The right facelift team in Dallas can help you achieve this goal.

ADVANCED and Dr. Bassichis

Dr. Bassichis and his medical staff focus exclusively on cosmetic and plastic surgery for the face, head, and neck. This focus means that you receive expert care in the specific procedure you require. It also means that you are guided to the right option for your needs.

Dr. Bassichis’ knowledge of facelift, Dallas mini-lift, and non-surgical procedures gives patients a wide variety of approaches to improved physical beauty. In your initial consultation, you’ll have a chance to discuss the goals you are trying to achieve. Dr. Bassichis will help you to understand the different techniques; the advantages of each; and how they may be used in combination to provide you with the best results.

With the procedure, patients can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin in the lower face. To support their face lift, Dallas patients may also receive FDA-approved and medically-proven facial fillers. These products address hollows and sharper features in the upper face, and they create a smoother and more voluminous appearance. Combining the approaches allows patients to maintain their appearance for years to come.

If you are ready for the reflection to match the inside “you”, contact ADVANCED to learn more about our facelift procedure. Our Dallas offices are available at (972) 774-1777 and
