Target Problem Areas This New Year!

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 09, 2015 AT 3:09 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

The new year is here! What are your resolutions? Eating right and exercising regularly to shed pounds are great goals for the upcoming year. However, extreme loss in weight may result in troublesome areas of sagging skin for some patients. Stretched skin which has lost its elasticity typically does not respond well to diet and exercise. Here at Bassin Plastic Surgery, we can help smooth those problem areas so you can look your best in 2015. Some common areas where patients experience sagging skin include:

Hanging Upper Arms

One particular problem for many people who experience weight loss is the formation of loose and sagging skin around the upper arms. The best way to address this issue is through an arm lift. Also known as brachioplasty, the arm lift targets loose skin that’s hiding your muscles in order to give your arms more shape and definition. Normally, brachioplasty takes two to three hours to complete and the recovery time is about two weeks.

Rubbing Thighs

Another problem area for many is the inner thigh. Sagging skin can result in pain while walking or going for a run. Even worse, chaffing may occur. In some instances, the presence of sagging skin can cause your body to appear disproportionate. Address these issues with a thigh lift, performed at our Orlando office! Our doctors will lift and tighten up the skin around your thighs, easing discomfort and improving your appearance.

Sagging Stomach

The stomach is perhaps the most common problem area among patients, as that stubborn layer of belly fat is often one of the toughest areas to burn off. If your abdominal muscles have been stretched by pregnancy or large fluctuations in weight, you may be an ideal candidate for a mini tummy tuck. Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure can remove small amounts of skin and fat in the lower abs in a shorter amount of time than a standard tummy tuck. During the procedure, abdominal muscles are tightened and excess skin is removed. Most patients return to work within 1 to 2 weeks and the full recovery time ranges from 4-6 weeks.

Dr. Roger Bassin, Dr. Rigo Mendoza and our staff welcome any questions you may have regarding arm lift, thigh lift, mini tummy tuck, and any of our body contouring procedures. 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.

Reduce Cellulite & Achieve Bikini-Ready Thighs After Plastic Surgery in Tampa!

Uncomfortable excess skin and fat on your thighs can be both a cosmetic and health concern. Although exercise can burn fat and firm the shape of your thighs, running and lifting may also cause rashes and chafing from constant rubbing. Dieting is also a wonderful means of losing weight, and in combination with daily and focused exercise, has the potential to achieve noticeable results to the size of your thighs. Unfortunately, cellulite may remain despite dieting and exercising efforts. If you’ve attempted both exercise and diets and are unhappy with the appearance of your cellulite, Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery Tampa has several options to help you accomplish the beautiful results you’ve worked so hard to achieve. These options include treatments such as Cellulaze and Thigh Lift:

Cellulaze: Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery Tampa is The Patient’s Guide “Premier Provider” of Cellulaze. This scar-free, body contouring treatment targets the three structural problems linked to the cause of cellulite, so you can permanently reduce the appearance of lumps and dimples. These structural problems include thin skin, pockets of fat, and connective tissue. Exercise and diet alone can’t improve these features, but Cellulaze in Tampa specifically targets these causes of cellulite. Cellulaze utilizes the latest laser technology to break apart the connective tissue that holds fat in pockets under the skin. It shrinks pockets of fat and increases the production of collagen, tightening and thickening the appearance of thin skin.

Thigh Lift: If you are concerned about the size and shape of your thighs in addition to the appearance of cellulite, thigh lift may be your best option. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers thigh lift to remove excess fat and tissue. In addition to cellulite reduction, your legs will be shapelier, so your thighs will lessen the rubbing and chaffing that occurs during your running and exercise routine. Scars following thigh lift in Tampa are unobtrusive and easily hidden in a bikini; show off your beautiful, newly shaped legs this summer!

Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions you may have about Cellulaze and thigh lift in Tampa. 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

No Scar for the Summer with Plastic Surgery in Tampa!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 2013 AT 5:32 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Diet and exercise take time before results become apparent, and when they are apparent, results often aren’t as noticeable as you had hoped. In these instances, patients turn to plastic surgery to achieve a slimmer figure and more contoured body. Traditionally, patients interested in plastic surgery needed an invasive procedure to remove localized problem areas of stubborn fat from the stomach, flanks, thighs, hips, or bra bulge. At Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa, Dr. Roger Bassin and Dr. Rigo Mendoza offer the most advanced, least invasive, no scar methods of body contouring available, including Liposonix, Cellulaze, and Aqualipo, so you can enjoy a slim, beach body in time to also enjoy the summer sun.

Liposonix: Unlike traditional body sculpting techniques, Liposonix’s high-intensity, focused ultrasound energy penetrates the skin to the targeted fat layer beneath without harming surrounding tissue and skin cells. Patients often return to their daily activities the same day as surgery. The procedure only lasts one hour, and after only one treatment, patients will achieve a shapelier, sleeker figure in 8 to 12 weeks. In addition to its speedy treatment and results, Liposonix in Tampa is also non-invasive, rendering scalpels, stitches, and scars unnecessary.  

Cellulaze: A large portion of the population is concerned about Cellulite. Women store fat in pockets beneath the skin, and thick bands of connective tissue prevent exercise and dieting from impacting the pocket-marked bumps and dimples commonly known as cellulite. If you’re concerned about the appearance of cellulite, contact Dr. Roger Bassin, a Premier Cellulaze Provider! Cellulaze in Tampa targets the three main structural problems linked to the formation of cellulite— thin skin, pockets of fat, and connective tissue bands— using only a small micro-incision the size of a pen tip.

Aqualipo: Visionary advances in liposuction technology now provide a gentler liposuction technique, known as Aqualipo, to minimize bleeding, swelling, and ultimately downtime compared to traditional methods. Aqualipo utilizes water-jet technology to loosen fat cells before removing them from the body, limiting the damage to surrounding tissues, muscles, and blood vessels. The fat cells that Aqualipo removes are undamaged and can be used during a fat transfer procedure known as NaturalFill, if so desired.

Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about Liposonix, Cellulaze, and Aqualipo in Tampa or any of our minimally invasive, no scar procedures. 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 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 FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 AT 10:57 AM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

Living a healthy lifestyle, consuming a balanced diet, and engaging in regular exercise are wonderful means of remaining physically fit and losing weight naturally, but if skin has lost its elasticity, significant weight loss may produce unappealing skin sagging. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers both arm lift and thigh lift to restore the shape to your body after rapid and extensive weight loss.

Arm lift: People are often embarrassed of their sagging upper arms and constrict themselves to long sleeves even as the temperature begins to rise for the spring weather. Brachioplasty, also known as arm lift, can shape your triceps even after significant weight loss has left behind unmanageable and unsightly flaps of skin. If the noticeable rewards of weight loss are more subtle than you’d hope to achieve, learn more about this procedure and how others before you have benefitted from its results by clicking on the link below!
