Look Dramatically, Naturally Younger with Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery in Florida

POSTED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 AT 5:17 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

As a natural part of the aging process, the fragile skin around the eyes loses elasticity, leading to drooping upper eyelids and puffiness below the eyes. If you’re tired of dealing with excess skin and muscle around the eyes, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery. Leading Florida plastic surgeons Dr. Roger Bassin and Dr. Rigo Mendoza have years of experience performing upper and lower blepharoplasty in Florida.

Upper blepharoplasty in Florida is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper eyelid and restores the eyelid crease. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, so patients can go home the same day as their surgery. In many cases, upper eyelid surgery is combined with eyelid ptosis repair and/or an internal brow lift, which both share common incision lines.


Lower blepharoplasty is ideal for treating circles and bags under the eyes that can dramatically age the face. As we age, the tissue layer that cushions the area behind the lower eyelids breaks down, leading to bulging fat pads beneath the eyes and contributing to the appearance of puffy under-eye bags. In order to provide patients with optimal lower blepharoplasty results, Dr. Bassin has developed an effective method of repositioning the lower eyelid fat pads to fill in under-eye circles. By shifting the fat pads rather than excising them entirely, Dr. Bassin and Dr. Mendoza are able to prevent the hollowed appearance that is often a result of too much tissue removal in traditional blepharoplasty surgery. In addition to upper blepharoplasty, lower eyelid surgery is often combined with laser resurfacing and a cheek mid-facelift.

The recovery period following upper and lower blepharoplasty is typically fairly short. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for the first four to six days after surgery, and will be seen approximately six days after surgery for a post-operative visit.

NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ Tampa: Dreams Do Come True with the Latest Liposuction Technology

POSTED ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2011 AT 3:01 PM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

People dream of being able to remove the fat from unwanted areas, such as their thighs, hips, and stomach, and moving that fat to more pleasingly plump body features like the butt and breasts. NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ has the ability to make that dream a reality. Instead of inserting silicone implants in the buttocks, NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ in Tampa uses the body’s own fat, previously harvested using a procedure called AquaLipo®, to shape the buttocks to the desired proportions. This procedure is less invasive than silicone implants; patients who choose traditional buttocks enhancement with silicone implants can expect mild swelling for at least three months while NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ patients will experience only two to three days of mild swelling. Also, NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ uses the body’s own natural fat, so the results are permanent. This procedure allows you to enhance volume and shape without inserting foreign substances in the body, creating the curves you’ve dreamed of naturally.

Dr. Rigo Mendoza, MD, at The Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery’s Tampa location, offers NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ in Florida. Dr. Mendoza will perform AquaLipo® in Tampa to remove fat from an undesirable area, such as the stomach, hips, or stomach, to use later for the NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™. AquaLipo® uses a focused jet stream of water, instead of lasers, to break up fat inside the body. This liposuction technique allows the fat which is harvested to remain pure and is ideal for transplantation into the buttocks. AquaLipo® is also less invasive than previously used liposuction techniques; the procedure is relatively gentle, and patients will experience almost no recovery time. The fat which is harvested using AquaLipo® is then inserted into the buttocks using NaturalFill® to increase volume and enhance contours. NaturalFill®, much like AquaLipo®, is relatively gentle and painless; it does not require incisions or stitches, nor does it require general anesthesia. Individual patient results will depend on the amount of available donor fat tissue and the increased volume desired.

Dr. Mendoza, Dr. Bassin, and their staff are more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about NaturalFill® Natural Buttocks Enhancement™ in Tampa. You may contact Dr. Mendoza at The Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery at the Tampa, Florida location by calling 813.872.7800 or scheduling an appointment online. Dr. Bassin may also be reached at his Orlando, Florida location at 407.851.3888, the Melbourne, Florida location at 321.255.0025, and the Villages, Florida location at 877.333.3223.

QuickLift Florida: Get Natural Looking Facelift Results With Less Downtime With The QuickLift™

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2011 AT 1:23 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Here’s the thing about plastic surgery – it’s constantly evolving. What used to require a week’s stay in the hospital (say, a facelift) now can be performed with excellent results and minimal downtime as new techniques continue to become available. As lives get busier and busier, there’s an ever-increasing desire for instant gratification. Florida facial plastic surgeon Dr. Roger Bassin understands that his patients want excellent results with the least amount of downtime. He’s committed to offering these results in the least-invasive ways possible. Now, Dr. Bassin offers the QuickLift™ in Florida, a modified facelift procedure designed to address the signs of ages in the mid- to lower-face and neck. It provides natural-looking results with significantly less downtime.


So what’s the difference between a mini-facelift and a QuickLift™? Whereas a mini-facelift typically only tightens the skin, a QuickLift™ addresses the underlying facial tissues and muscles in addition to the skin. A QuickLift™ will give more noticeable results than a mini-facelift, but more subtle results than a full facelift.

With the QuickLift™, patients can return to their normal activities just one or two days post-operatively. Unlike older facelift surgeries, which require risky maneuvering around facial nerves and major blood vessels, the QuickLift™ procedure is relatively un-invasive. It is performed through two small incisions circling the ear. Through these incisions, Dr. Bassin lifts and tightens connective tissues and facial muscles and removes excess skin. According to Dr. Bassin, the results of the QuickLift™ are more natural than deep facelifts, which can result in an overly-pulled appearance.

Most of Dr. Bassin’s QuickLift™ patients are between the ages of 40 and 75 years old and have noticeable sagging on the mid- to lower-face. The procedure can be performed in-office and takes about one hour. In many cases, Dr. Bassin suggests NaturalFill® Natural Facial Filler™ be performed in conjunction with your QuickLift™ procedure. NaturalFill® for Face uses your own fat cells harvested from other parts of your body to smooth facial wrinkles and add volume to the cheeks and lips.

For more information about Dr. Bassin’s QuickLift™, please visit The Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery’s website or call us at one of our four Florida plastic surgery locations: Orlando, FL at 407.851.3888; Tampa, FL at 813.872.7800; Melbourne, FL at 321.255.0025, and The Villages, FL at 877.333.3223.
