For Roger Bassin, M.D., water acts as a powerful tool to help reshape and contour areas of the hips, arms, legs, breasts and tummy in a minimally-invasive procedure that uses the gentle sculpting of water-assisted liposuction.
“Aqualipo® is a procedure I trademarked and pioneered to help improve the liposuction procedure, and to help decrease bruising, swelling and bleeding,” Dr. Bassin said. This correlates to a reduced medical risk, another benefit of the design process.
During the process, which is completed in about 30-45 minutes per targeted area in the doctor’s office, fat in targeted areas is gently flushed from the body by water-assisted liposuction. By gently removing the fat with the aspiration unit, the Aqualipo® process avoids the aggressive and traumatic actions of conventional liposuction.
“It’s especially helpful for stubborn areas that can’t be toned with diet
and exercise such as bra bulges, love handles, double chins and excess fat in the neck, arm, abdomen, thighs, knees and, for males, in the abdomen, love handles, and breast area,” he says.
The technique permanently removes fat cells, and also promotes skin tightening for superior, more sculpted results. As a bonus, the fat that is harvested from the treatment areas is so pure, says Dr. Bassin, that it can be transferred to other areas of the body to contour the face, lips and hands. Superior to temporary tissue fillers, collagen or implants, NaturalFill® – also developed by Dr. Bassin – uses the body’s own natural fat as filler with less risk, downtime and no need to return for maintenance.
Bassin, an eyelid and facial plastic and re-constructive surgeon, has been innovating healthcare solutions for clients since he came to Brevard in 2004.
He graduated magna cum laude from George Washington University ￼in Washington, D.C., and was accepted to the Medical School at George Washington University as part of their Early Selection program.
He then completed an internship at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital and a residency in Ophthalmology at the prestigious Mount Sinai Medical Center, followed by a two year fellowship at the University of Illinois Chicago, where he also received liposuction training.
When he’s not tending to clients, Dr. Bassin divides his time between family life (he’s celebrating 10 years with wife Stephene, and has two growing kids), training other surgeons in the pioneering procedures he’s developed, and making television appearances showing his methods to curious (and often appreciative) audiences around the country. Dr. Bassin is Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Liposuction Surgery. He has been chosen as one of the world top doctors by The Leading Physicians of the World.
Dr. Bassin’s latest innovation, LazerLiftTM is a minimally invasive facelift procedure that can be performed in as little as 20 minutes in the office. Patients can view Dr. Bassin and LazerLiftTM on “The Doctors” television show at LazerLift.com.
Dr. Bassin was twice featured as an international expert for his patented Aqualipo® and NaturalFill® procedures on the Dr. Oz show.
￼Dr. Roger Bassin has offices in Melbourne, Orlando and the Villages.
