The New You Countdown For New Year's Eve

POSTED ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2014 AT 4:51 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

The New Year countdown is a celebration of the prior year and a new start for the year ahead. Many people watch the ball drop and attend glitzy parties to ring in the New Year right. If you’re hosting or attending a party this New Year’s Eve, you’ll want to look glamorous in preparation for that stolen New Year’s kiss. Visit Dr. Roger Bassin or Dr. Rigo Mendoza at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery for a New You Countdown:

THREE! Dress Up - Drop a size with Liposonix:

If you’re shopping for the perfect New Year’s outfit, a Liposonix treatment can help you slim and sculpt your figure! Liposonix is a non-invasive, one time treatment that can help you drop a full dress size. Only a 1-hour treatment to target stubborn exercise-resistant fat around the abdomen, and you can achieve permanent results without any subsequent downtime or stitches.

TWO! Cozy Up - Catch someone’s eye with Latisse Eyelash Enhancer:

Long, dark, luscious lashes can add a smoky, dramatic look to your appearance. Latisse Eyelash Enhancer can achieve that look without the application of makeup! One treatment of Latisse before bed nightly for several weeks, and your eyelashes will grow noticeably thicker, darker, and longer! Without continuous treatment, however, your lashes will revert to their original appearance.

ONE! Pucker Up - Plump your lips with Cosmetic Fillers:

To prep for your New Year’s kiss, you may want to consider cosmetic fillers to plump your pucker. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery offers a variety of cosmetic filler options at our Orlando office to enhance your pout, such as Perlane®, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Although these fillers require bi-yearly appointments to  maintain results, their results are noticeable immediately after treatment and are administered with a simple injection. Ask our doctors about NaturalFill® Facial Filler if you’re interested in more permanent results.


Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and our staff look forward to discussing any questions you may have about Liposonix, Latisse Eyelash Enhancer, cosmetic fillers, and any of our many non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in Orlando. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2014 AT 11:57 AM by Dr. Roger Bassin

The holidays are fast approaching! If you pass by the store racks boasting holly-jolly Christmas gowns and sparkly New Year's dresses, you can't help but wonder how to hide unsightly leg veins and still wear the dress of your choice, you may be a candidate for Excel V Laser Treatment!

At Bassin Plastic Surgery, we eliminate the challenge of masking your leg veins with our new, advanced laser vein removal treatment in Orlando. After only a few visits to our office, you can pick out a new holiday gown that flaunts your vein-free legs!

Excel V uses laser technology to zap away leg veins. It's pain-free, requires no downtime, takes only 30 minutes, and best of all, it's permanent! The procedure works by applying a high-powered green laser to the targeted area. The heat from the laser warms the vein and the vein disappears.

Unlike other laser vein treatments available, Excel V is unique because the laser adjusts to fit any skin tone and treats any vascular blemish, resulting in evenly toned skin. Say goodbye to creams, cover ups, and leggings! After Excel V, your legs will appear smoother and younger. You won't be able to resist buying dresses for the entire new year! Check out the results!


Excel V is a permanent method for leg vein removal.

Fat Removal: Fall In Love With Your Body With CoolSculpting

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2014 AT 11:31 AM by Dr. Roger Bassin

This season, Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery wants to help you fall in love with your body! Using our new, completely non-surgical CoolSculpting fat removal system, you can love every view of you. This body sculpting technique is FDA-approved to treat the flanks, abdomen, and thighs. It’s a safe and effective procedure that allows you to return to your regular activities immediately.

CoolSculpting is one of the most innovative procedures offered and with so many options available, it may be difficult to pick the right one for your needs.

Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger Bassin, will help you decide the best procedure for you, and whether you decide to use CoolSculpting, liposuction, or another body sculpting procedure, we will develop a treatment plan for optimal results.


CoolSculpting Vs. Traditional Lipo 



Traditional Liposuction


Using a cooling agent, the fat cells are frozen beneath the skin without the use of incisions. These frozen fat cells are later naturally expelled from the body. No anesthetics are involved. Patients may read a book, watch television, or take a nap during the procedure.

Using an inconspicuous incision, a cannula is inserted to suction fat from of the body under the skin using a surgical vacuum or syringe. Patients will receive local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia will be used during this procedure.


No downtime is involved. Patients can return to normal activities immediately.

Patients are required to wear a compression garment and treat surgical site post-op. Bruising, swelling, and bleeding are common within the first week or so of recovery.


Fat is gradually removed as fat cells expire and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Results can be seen in 3 weeks, with gradual improvements occurring over a period of 4-6 months.

Fat is instantly removed by suction. Swelling may take a while to dissipate, slowing the final result. 


Enjoy a new you this season after CoolSculpting! For more information on CoolSculpting in Orlando, contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223.

Tackle Aging Features To Restore Your Youth!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2014 AT 9:22 AM by Dr. Roger Bassin

We all want to hold onto our smooth skin, graceful neck, and youthful appearance for the long run, but in time, these defining features may begin to fade, adding unwanted age to our appearance.  At Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery, we know the most common trouble spots for aging are our neck, eyes, and facial wrinkles. We offer specialized, non-invasive procedures, such as LazerLift, dermal fillers, and cosmetic injectables for each of these aging areas, so you can once again embrace your youth! 


Turkey Neck

Turkey neck is the skin underneath your chin that is loose and sagging, resembling a gobbler. A result of aging, weight loss, or even genetics, turkey neck impedes your chin’s appearance, making your sagging jowls more prominent. To reduce signs of turkey neck, our Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger Bassin, recommends LazerLift, a no scalpel, no scar neck lift. Using laser technology, LazerLift tightens and smoothens the lower face and neck. This procedure takes less than an hour to complete, giving your neck and chin more definition and renewed youth.


Under Eye Bags

Bags under eyes can make you look tired and worn, although you may feel energized. Dermal fillers can eliminate under-eye bags with targeted injections deep beneath the skin’s layers. These fillers last 6-12 months, depending on the filler and the severity of your condition, and they can smoothen under-eye bags, mimicking the results of the permanent, more invasive procedure, blepharoplasty



The first signs of aging are wrinkles. Although some may appreciate these “lines of wisdom” others feel wrinkles prematurely age their face. BOTOX® Cosmetic, a cosmetic injectable, relaxes the facial muscle that causes wrinkles, leaving your face substantially smoother. This FDA-approved procedure lasts four to six months, and is most effective with repeat applications.

Roger Bassin, M.D.Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to any questions you may have regarding LazerLift, Dermal Fillers, or Botox. Discover if you qualify for one of these procedures by contacting us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza.

Fat Transfer For A Boo-tiful You This Halloween!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2014 AT 2:13 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Celebrate Halloween with a new you! While others are dressing up to play the masked beauty, you can avoid the tricks and reveal the beauty inside you! Treat yourself to rejuvenation this Halloween! At Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery, we offer fat transfer, a natural method for enhancing volume and eliminating lines without the use of synthetic materials!  Using Aqualipo, a fat removal system that utilizes a water jet to gently flush fat from the donor area of your body, Dr. Bassin is able to acquire your own, natural fat for a transfer to the desired area.


Although our bodies don’t come in one shape, our clothes do. Not being able to fill out our jeans or dresses can be a frustrating situation. Using fat transfer, we can improve the shape and size of your buttocks. Fat transfer also guarantees a much more natural-look and feel to your buttocks than buttocks implants. The results from fat transfer are permanent, unlike implants which require replacement in ten to twenty years.


Similarly to fat transfer to the buttocks, fat transfer to the breasts is also permanent. Fat transfer creates a much more natural-looking result, adding volume to all the right areas for a more voluptuous chest. Although fat transfer is meant for subtle augmentation, fat transfer can smooth-out irregularities, enhance curves, and correct edging around existing breast implants. 


Cosmetic injectables are often recommended for correction of facial lines and wrinkles. These fillers, unfortunately, are not permanent. Using fat transfer, our plastic surgeon is able to soften fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas of your cheeks. The fat transfer is permanent, and does not require maintenance treatments like cosmetic injectables. 


Our hands are one of the first features to show age. The thinned-out appearance in our hands can reveal the unwanted appearance of bones and veins. Using fat transfer, your hands can appear as dainty and youthful as your 20 year old self! Unlike collagen injections and tissue fillers, this treatment will last!

Dr. Bassin has some anti-aging tricks so you can treat yourself this Halloween! Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff welcome any questions you may have regarding Naturalfill in Florida for fat transfer. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza
