Aqualipo® in Tampa is a less-invasive liposuction technique which uses a jet stream of water to break fat cells apart from connective tissue and suction it from the body. This procedure is gentle, doesn’t require any patient down time, doesn’t produce any scars, and doesn’t need any more anesthesia than a simple local. What it does is enhance your natural curves and contours by suctioning pure, undamaged fat from the body that may be used in a fat transfer procedure, called NaturalFill. Dr. Mendoza performs NaturalFill in Tampa on patients who would like to transfer the fat they removed during Aqualipo® to a more appealing location. People who have Aqualipo® in Tampa performed on their abdomen, thighs, or chin, often choose to have NaturalFill® in Tampa performed on their breasts, buttocks, hands, or face to sculpt their contours and smooth away fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. Join us February 4th for Bassin Center  for Plastic Surgery Tampa’s Plastic Surgery Seminar to discuss the latest cosmetic procedures being offered and watch the revolutionary procedures in liposuction and fat transfer, Aqualipo® and NaturalFill®, performed right before your eyes! A continental breakfast will be provided for your convenience.

Rodger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about Aqualipo® and NaturalFill®. 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.

Begin the New Year with a New You with Vaginal Rejuvenation in Tampa, Florida

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 AT 4:15 PM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

When 2012 strikes and the lips you’re been dying to kiss all year pucker in your direction, lean in, confident that wherever the kiss may lead, whether it’s just to another round at the punch bowl or an early party exit, you’re prepared for the situation. Many women are embarrassed or tolerate sexual and physical discomfort due to the shape and appearance of their labia folds. The thickness of their clitoral hood or widened vagina from childbirth may lessen stimulation. Overly large labia may also become uncomfortable and may chafe, especially during strenuous physical activity, such as running or other forms of exercise. Whether your dissatisfaction stems from its cosmetic appearance, sexual hindrance, or physical discomfort, Rigo Mendoza, M.D. offers vaginal rejuvenation in Tampa at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa.

Vaginal rejuvenation in Tampa, Florida offers a variety of options to modify and enhance the different features of your labia, clitoris, and vagina, including labia reduction, labia contouring, labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, fat injections, labia majora reduction, labia majora augmentation, vaginal narrowing, and vaginal tightening. At Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa, Dr. Rigo Mendoza does not use lasers to perform vaginal rejuvenation in Tampa because of the risks involved. Many of our patients commonly come to us for vaginal rejuvenation because of the loss or reduction of sensitivity and permanent loss of crucial labial tissue. Anesthesia and recovery time may vary depending on the individual procedure and features chosen for vaginal rejuvenation in Florida. Dr. Mendoza will discuss the recovery time and specific after-care instructions with each patient, including the time one should abstain from sexual intercourse and tampon use.  Patients can expect to schedule a post-operative appointment with Dr. Mendoza one week after vaginal rejuvenation.

Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers vaginal rejuvenation in Florida, so woman can feel more comfortable, confident, and satisfied with their bodies. Prepare for the different outcomes of your 2012 kisses and consider whether vaginal rejuvenation in Tampa is right for you. Rodger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about vaginal rejuvenation. 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.

Hanging Decorations without Hanging Skin with Armlift Tampa

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2011 AT 4:56 PM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

Lights twirled around trees, outlining houses like gingerbread wonderlands, mistletoe dangling from doorways, and sliver ornaments twinkling on red and green holly decorate houses on every block. When you reach up to drape a set of lights over the bannister this holiday season, however, the lights may not be the only thing hanging. Loose, sagging skin in the upper arms is a common problem as people age. Skin loses its elasticity through the years, and if someone loses sudden, drastic weight, excess skin is likely to occur. Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers brachioplasty, or arm lift in Tampa, which will shape your upper arm to give you a more pleasingly toned and less sagging appearance.

Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. performs arm lift in Tampa, Florida at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa or in any of our other Florida locations. Patients are often embarrassed by their sagging skin. Many have worked hard to lose weight, and the reward for their perseverance and dedication is skin that has lost its elasticity. Arm lift in Florida gives patients the upper arms they deserve. General anesthesia is used during the procedure, and the procedure typically takes two to three hours to complete, depending on the extent of the targeted skin and amount of excess fat. Although results from arm lift in Tampa are excellent and satisfying, permanent scars will be visible on the underside or back of the arms after surgery. Patients can usually return to work seven to ten days after arm lift in Tampa. They will be required to wear compression garments for two weeks after surgery, but sutures will dissolve on their own.

Hang ornaments, cinnamon sticks, and wreaths this holiday season without the self-conscious embarrassment of sagging, excess upper arm skin. Let flickering lights and burned cookies be your only concern while family and friends gather and remark on how lovely your decorations and your arms look this December. Rodger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about arm lift. 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.

A Lift to Your Body for a Lift to Your Life with Breast lift Tampa

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2011 AT 10:04 AM by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

The size and shape of women’s breasts naturally change as they age. Significant weight loss and gain, hormonal fluctuations, childbirth, breast feeding, and the natural process of aging are only some of the life changes that cause breasts to droop and sag, a condition called ptosis of the breasts.  This can be physically uncomfortable, even painful, as well as aesthetically displeasing. Back, neck, and shoulder pain as well as irritation and rashes can develop where moister becomes trapped and the skin rubs due to ptosis of the breasts. Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. offers mastopexy, or breast lift in Tampa, to provide women relief from the pain, irritation, and appearance of sagging breasts. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers a variety of breast surgeries to meet every patient’s individual needs. Dr. Mendoza can also combine breast surgeries such as breast augmentation and NaturalFill® Natural Fat Transferalong with breast lift to yield overall most satisfying results.

Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. performs breast lift at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa. The specifics for your individual breast lift in Tampa procedure will depend upon the extent your breasts have sagged and the techniques needed to restore them as close to their original appearance as possible. Dr. Mendoza can use a combination of techniques, such as removing skin, the addition of implants, or utilizing NaturalFill® Natural Fat Transfer to achieve the fullness, lift, and contours desired. Scars will be easily hidden behind a bra or bathing suit as incisions are made under the breasts and around the nipple. Breast lift in Tampa will be performed in an outpatient surgical facility, and patients typically return home the same day as surgery. Although it may take six months to a year for swelling to completely diminish, patients are able to return to work within one to two weeks, depending on the patient’s overall health and job requirements. Dr. Mendoza will discuss specific post-operative care which patients should engage in during the recovery process to help with healing, pain management, and understanding what to expect. Mild swelling should ease within three months, at which time patients should already feel the benefits of their breast lift. A life filled with back, neck, and shoulder pain, irritation under the breasts, and body image dissatisfaction is no way to live. Breast lift in Tampa provides a lift to your body as well as a lift to your quality of life, so you can enjoy the breasts you once had before the passing years stole their contours and perk.

Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about breast lift. You can contact us at our Melbourne office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa office at 1.813.872.7800, our Villages office at 1.877.333.3223, and our Memphis office at  1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza.

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.


* PATIENTS INDIVIDUAL RESULTS MAY VARY

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.
