Five Things Dr. Bachilo Will Never Do
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olga Bachilo understands the importance of prioritizing the safety and well-being of her patients. Her passion for her work and her commitment to her patients are evident in the outstanding results she achieves. In her practice, she has made a conscious decision not to perform certain procedures, as they may not align with her values or pose unnecessary risks to her patients. In this blog, we will discuss the five things that Dr. Olga Bachilo would not do and the reasons behind her decisions.
Buccal Fat Removal
Buccal fat removal is a surgical procedure that involves removing the fat pads from the cheeks, resulting in a more defined and sculpted appearance. However, Dr. Bachilo does not perform this procedure. While it may seem like a quick fix to improve the aesthetics of the face, the procedure has a high risk of complications, such as infections and scarring. The removal of too much fat can lead to hollowed or sunken cheeks, resulting in an unflattering appearance, and this procedure is irreversible and the correction can be very costly. Additionally, as we age, we naturally lose fat in the face, and the buccal fat pad can provide support to the overlying tissues. Removing it can result in premature aging and a less youthful appearance. Dr. Bachilo prioritizes the health and well-being of her patients, and she believes that the risks associated with buccal fat removal are too high.
Dimpleplasty is a cosmetic surgery that creates permanent dimples on the face by making an incision in the cheek and forming a small depression. While the procedure may be popular, Dr. Olga Bachilo does not perform it. Dimples are typically associated with youth and a happy disposition. However, facial expressions are dynamic and change throughout the years, which may affect the appearance of the dimples, as patients age, the location will shift. Additionally, dimpleplasty is not reversible and can lead to complications such as infection, scarring, and nerve damage. As a responsible and ethical surgeon, Dr. Bachilo believes that the risks associated with the procedure and long-term effects outweigh the aesthetic outcomes.
Undereye Filler Without Addressing Cheek Volume Loss/ Support
The use of fillers under the eyes has become popular in recent years, as it can improve the appearance of dark circles and hollowness in the area. However, Dr. Olga Bachilo does not perform this procedure without first addressing cheek volume loss/support. The cheeks provide support for the under-eye area, and treating the loss of volume in the cheeks is crucial to prevent a “pillow face” appearance. As we age, our bones shrink, and skin, muscle, ligaments get affected by gravity, therefore not addressing overall facial appearance but only one part, will not only not fix the initial issue, but accentuate disproportionate aging process in other areas. The undereye area is closely connected to the cheeks, and addressing one without the other can result in an unnatural appearance. As a result, Dr. Bachilo believes that addressing cheek volume loss/support is essential before performing undereye filler injections.
Facial Threads without Addressing Volume Loss with Fillers
Facial threads are a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting special sutures into the skin to lift and tighten the facial tissue. However, Dr. Olga Bachilo does not perform facial threads without first addressing volume loss with fillers. Facial threads alone may not provide the desired results and can lead to an unnatural appearance. Moreover, facial threads can have a high risk of complications, including infection, lumpiness, scarring, and nerve damage. By addressing volume loss with fillers first, Dr. Bachilo can ensure that her patients achieve the best possible results and avoid unnecessary risks.
Have Plastic Surgery with a Non-Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Finally, Dr. Bachilo would not recommend having a plastic surgery with a non-board-certified plastic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is a specialized field, and only board-certified plastic surgeons have the training and expertise to perform safe and effective procedures. They have undergone extensive training in plastic surgery and have passed rigorous exams to obtain their certification. In contrast, a cosmetic surgeon may have a medical degree but may not have undergone specific training in plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons will not have the same level of training or experience and may not adhere to the same industry safety standards. Choosing a non-board-certified cosmetic surgeon can put the patient at risk of complications, unsatisfactory results, and a less safe surgical experience.
In conclusion, Dr. Olga Bachilo is a highly experienced and ethical plastic surgeon who prioritizes patient safety and satisfaction above all else. She would not perform procedures that can lead to an unnatural appearance, premature aging, or an increased risk of complications. Additionally, she would not recommend having plastic surgery with a non-board-certified plastic surgeon. Patients who are considering plastic surgery should always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who can offer them the best possible results and a safe and comfortable surgical experience.
