Top Facelift Doctor Blends Surgery With Non-Surgical Treatments To Boost Anti-Aging Outcomes


The desire to look younger is nothing new, but the recent trend to blend surgical and non-surgical procedures has made anti-aging simpler—and more effective—than ever before. 

Just ask Dr. Benjamin Bassichis, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has repeatedly been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor. 

From his Dallas-based boutique facility, Dr. Bassichis explains that he firmly believes a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation—one that includes both surgical and non-surgical procedures—provides superb natural-looking results that allow patients’ own beauty to shine.

By utilizing an integrated approach, Dr. Bassichis says he is able to address skin quality, facial volume and surgical needs to deliver truly natural aesthetic outcomes which are custom for each patient. “For us, there are no ‘cookie cutter’ approaches when it comes to facial plastic surgery,” he asserts. “With our integrated methods, each patient receives a layered custom treatment plan to address all their aesthetic concerns.”

He uses a facelift as an example of how surgery can be enhanced with non-surgical treatments like Botox and Juvederm. “Maintaining and optimizing the results of a facelift can be achieved more naturally and effectively than ever before with facial filler injections that are used at the time of the surgical procedure,” he asserts.

Additionally, anti-aging treatments like Fractionated C02 Laser resurfacing—when used as a facelift supplement or by itself—are clinically proven to deliver younger-looking skin. “This innovation represents state-of-the-art technology for effectively treating wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, and other facial irregularities to achieve significant improvements in facial skin tone, texture, and tightening,” Dr. Bassichis says. 


“When choosing a surgeon for your facelift, experience and expertise are everything.”


Despite the seeming simplicity of the integrated approach, Dr. Bassichis advises patients to seek out a surgeon who has extensive experience and exceptional skills. “When choosing a surgeon for your facelift, experience and expertise are everything,” he asserts. He instructs patients to work a surgeon who specializes in aesthetic facial plastic surgeries and is board certified in the area that they wish to have surgery. Dr. Bassichis is double board certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery.

“Just because a doctor did an excellent job on one part of your body, doesn’t necessarily mean they are the right doctor for another area,” he explains. Said another way: Your doctor may be a superb surgeon for non-facial surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation, abdominal liposuction, and hand surgery, but this does not qualify him or her as an expert facial surgeon.

To that end, Dr. Bassichis advises patients to ask the doctor specific questions like:

  • What is your specific area of specialty? 

  • What percentage of your practice is devoted to plastic surgery of the face? 

  • Are you board certified? Is it area of medicine they are treating you in?

  • Do you have medical privileges at an accredited hospital or surgery center? Where?

And always ask to see examples of the doctor’s work and seek out patient testimonials. 

The results achieved by combining skincare, non-surgical treatments and judicious surgery have never been more natural or appealing. But to ensure the best results, work with a surgeon who builds a customized plan for your face and has the training, skill, and experience to deliver natural and beautiful results.
