Hair Restoration in Florida with NeoGraft

POSTED ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 02, 2011 AT 5:52 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Your Advancing Hairline:

The passing years can take its toll on your physical appearance, and one of the first features affected along with sagging lower eyelids and fine wrinkles, lines, and facial folds is hair loss. Despite being one of the first signs of aging and the advanced technology available for other beginning signs of aging, such as blepharoplasty, laser treatments, and NaturalFill®, traditional battles against hair loss have bordered on primitive, leaving long, noticeable scars around the head. At Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa and Orlando locations, however, NeoGraft is revolutionizing the field of hair restoration. Roger Bassin, M.D. and Rigo Mendoza, M.D. will transplant the hair follicles from the back of your head to the front of your scalp where your hair has receded. The NeoGraft inTampa procedure is painless, involves no surgery, no linear scars, and provides natural, permanent results.

Outgrow Genetics

NeoGraft in Orlando is the most technologically advanced procedure in hair restoration. Results from your NeoGraft in Tampa hair restoration is a slow process. Like natural hair, your restored hairline takes time to grow. Once the grafted hair sheds within two to three months, your new, advanced hairline will grow like natural hair within four to six months. After generations of inherited hair loss, NeoGraft in Orlando provides a solution which outgrows genetics. Ideal candidates for NeoGraft in Orlando are patients whose hairline is thinning, but hair on the back of the head is still thick enough to use as donor follicles. Dr. Bassin and Dr. Rio Mendoza will discuss the individual results you can expect from your NeoGraft in Tampa hair transplant restoration during your initial consultation at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa, Orlando, or Melbourne Florida Locations.

NaturalFill Face Groupon for Orlando & Melbourne Florida

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2011 AT 6:03 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

As the years pass, facial features begin to soften and become less defined, skin folds, wrinkles, and sags, and the lower eyes lids and cheeks sallow. The telling symptoms of age have been unavoidable until now; NaturalFill® Facial Filler uses a person’s own fat cells to plump lower eyelids, lips and cheeks and smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Roger Bassin, M.D. at The Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery is now offering a $999 NaturalFill® Facial Filler Groupon  in his Orlando and Viera Florida offices. The Groupon begins midnight tonight and will be sold until midnight on Saturday December 3rd. This procedure typically runs for approximately $2,100, so patients will be saving $1,101, a 52% discount. The Groupon expires June 6th once purchased, and patients must complete an initial consultation by March 6th 2012 for the Groupon to remain active. Groupons are limited to one use per person for one NaturalFill® in Florida procedure. Patients may buy an additional Groupon as a gift for someone else, but anyone using a NaturalFill® Facial Filler Groupon  can only use one Groupon per procedure, whether they purchased the Groupon themselves or received it as a gift. Anyone who purchases a NaturalFill® Facial Filler in Orlando and Viera, Florida Groupon and discovers they are not eligible for the procedure during their initial consultation will receive a full refund through Groupon.

Roger Bassin M.D. pioneered Aqualipo® and NaturalFill® in Orlando, Florida as the newest and most innovative technique in liposuction and facial fillers. Aqualipo® is water-assisted liposuction which uses the Body-Jet® to gently dislodge fat cells from the body. Compared to traditional liposuction, Aqualipo® in Orlando is quicker, safer, uses only local anesthetic, and requires next to no recovery time. The NaturalFill® Facial Filler procedure uses the fat cells that were harvested during Aqualipo® to fill the desired facial features in order to achieve a younger appearance, such as smoothing the creases from nasolabial folds and marionette lines, or plumping lips and lower eyelids. Your pure fat cells which are harvested during Aqualipo® in Orlando are considered the Fountain of Youth because of their rejuvenation properties. The results achieved during NaturalFill® are nearly permanent unlike most other facial fillers and wrinkle relaxers because no foreign chemicals are being introduced into the body; NaturalFill® in Orlando and Viera, Florida uses only your body’s own natural fat cells. Dr. Bassin has years of experience in both Aqualipo® and NaturalFill®, and has even performed both procedures live on Dr. Oz!

Dr. Bassin and his staff welcome any questions or concerns you may have about the Aqualipo® or NaturalFill® procedures. You can contact us at our Orlando, Florida office at 1.407.851.3888, our Melbourne, Florida office at 1.321.255.0025, our Tampa office at 1.813.872.7800, our Villages office at 1.877.333.3223, or our Memphis office at 1.877.333.3223 or you may request  an appointment online for a personal consultation with Dr. Bassin.

Get the Flat Abs You Desire with a Tummy Tuck in Tampa

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2011 AT 5:03 PM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

Do you dream of a firm, flat abdomen? For many people, a flat stomach seems like an unattainable goal. Muscles become weak, skin stretches, and excess flab in the mid-section becomes impossible to lose no matter how much you diet and exercise. If this sounds familiar, consider tummy tuck surgery performed by Tampa board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rigo Mendoza. Dr. Mendoza performs abdominoplasty surgery at the Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery.

Abdominoplasty, frequently referred to as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat and repairs stretched abdominal muscles. Often, women who have had babies or patients who have lost a significant amount of weight are good candidates for this procedure.

 During a tummy tuck procedure, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mendoza will make an incision across the lower abdomen to remove excess skin and repair abdominal muscles. Once the necessary excisions and corrections have been made, a second incision may be necessary to reposition the naval. While scarring will be visible, it can generally be concealed by bathing suits and undergarments.


Dr. Mendoza performs tummy tucks in a surgical facility using general anesthesia. In most cases, patients are released to go home on the same day as their surgery.  Typically, the full recovery period for abdominoplasty surgery takes between four and six weeks, but light activity can be resumed almost immediately.


To learn more about tummy tuck surgery in Tampa, please visit the Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa’s website. Dr. Mendoza and his staff will be happy to discuss this procedure with you. Please call 813-872-7800 or request an appointment online for more information.

Bassin Center Offers New, Smarter Approach to Facelift Surgery with Smartlift

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2011 AT 4:58 PM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

Like the rest of our bodies, our skin changes over time. No matter how carefully you protect your skin from overexposure to the sun and other elements, it inevitably loses its elasticity and firmness. Luckily, Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure that combines the results of a facelift surgery with the skin-tightening benefits of Smartlipo™.  This incredible procedure, called a Smartlift, can help to treat the visible signs of facial aging, including sagging skin and excess fat under the chin.

When it first became available, Smartlipo™ was primarily used on the neck and abdomen to remove unwanted fat and tighten the skin. Recently, this laser technology has been used when performing facial procedures. During Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa’s Smartlift procedure, Smartlipo™ is used to gently free the skin from the underlying tissue, reducing the bleeding that is often present during a facelift procedure by coagulating small vessels in the face. Using this technology, the Tampa Smartlift is able to provide patients with all of the same benefits as a traditional facelift surgery in a much gentler manner. Ultimately, this means a shorter operation, quicker recovery, less swelling, less bruising, fewer complications, and improved skin tightening when compared to traditional facelift surgery.

The incision for a Smartlift is made along the natural folds in front of the ears. The Smartlipo™ laser is used to gently separate the skin from the tissue underneath. After the skin is elevated, the underlying facial muscles are tightened. Once the necessary corrections are made, the skin is repositioned and any excess skin is removed.


In many cases, patients decide to combine a Smartlift with other facial rejuvenation procedures, including laser skin resurfacing or NaturalFill® Natural Facial Filler™. If you’re considering any combination of these facial rejuvenation techniques in Tampa, your procedures can be performed in a hospital, surgical center, or in Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa’s in-office operating room.

For more information about the Tampa Smartlift, please visit Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa’s new website. Dr. Rigo Mendoza would be happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding this or any other procedure offered at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa. Please call 813-872-7800 or request an appointment online for more information.
