Being 45 this year I decided it was time to do something cosmetic. Several different individuals including my internal medicine doctor and my hairstylist all referred me to Dr B and now I see why. He is a good listener and provides even better results. He was very polite and professional and made me feel at ease - the staff was so nice too. I was plagued as a teenager with severe acne and had several acne scars I wanted treated. I spent good money on non-invasive injections, acne scar revision, and laser services and they are WORTH EVERY PENNY. He does not do procedures that you do not need - just helps optimize the treatments that will work best for you. My skin looks great and I actually look younger and refreshed. I now am one of the pleased people that recommend Dr B and that is why I am writing this today. I cannot thank the Dr. enough for the confidence he has given me in my appearance.

When my daughter announced her engagement it was a two-fold blessing. One I was gaining a great new son-in-law and two I decided I wasn't going to look old and fat in the wedding pictures. Thank God, I had a year to make the transformation. I had a group of friends and husband that cheered me on and I lost 20 lbs. I needed a miracle so my dermatologist sent me to see Dr. Pruitt. I needed a lot of work! I had facial work done and 8 weeks later a tummy tuck. My daughter and husband love the more energetic and younger looking me. I am so thankful to Dr. Pruitt and my husband for all their support! They can take all the wedding photos they want. I feel great!

Wonderful experience, I would do it again. Dr. Pruitt answered EVERY question I had and then some (and I ask a lot). I was never anxious about my surgery or outcome because I knew I was in the best hands possible with him. Carolyn his nurse is fantastic and answered any question I had as well. Stephanie in the front office is great. She always answered my calls and questions too. I love the outcome of my surgery. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pruitt and his team for any cosmetic or reconstructive surgery you many need. THANK YOU!

For cosmetic surgery, my friends told me that Dr. Pruitt was the best kept secret in Dallas. When I found out he does not advertise or self-promote because he does not have to...he is already busy. My friends that are in-the-know said he is guy to go to for facial surgery. I am so glad I did. The process was fairly easy. Dr. Pruitt and his wonderful staff held my hand through the whole experience. Now I look amazing and I feel much more youthful and confident. Wish I had done it sooner. Best money I ever spent. --Sam F.

Dr. Bassichis was referred to me by many people for anti-aging. Dr. Bassichis and his knowledgeable and professional staff went above and beyond in thoroughly explaining the entire process. I was adamant that my face would look rejuvenated but totally natural looking. My results from Dr. Bassichis are perfect and reflect exactly what I discussed with Dr. Bassichis. I highly recommend Dr. Bassichis for his attention to detail, creating a comfortable environment and listening to and respecting his patients.

Dr. Pruitt and his staff are professional and his office has a very calming atmosphere. Dr. Pruitt put me at ease and was very knowledgeable when addressing the goals that I would hoped to achieve. His recommendation was that I wait a few years before having any facial procedures. He said I could have work done now but I would be better off waiting 3 or 4 more years and the benefit I would receive later would greatly out way the risk of having surgery now. I appreciated his honesty! -- Dianne B.

Since I deal with surgeons, medical staff and surgical facilities on a day-to-day basis in my job, I am aware of what goes on behind the scenes. I must say, Dr. Pruitt and his staff were stellar. The anesthesia provider was great (no nausea, no general anesthesia, no pain) and the surgical facility was clean. The nurses were very nice and my surgery and post-operative care were great. I was very impressed with the entire'operation'! -- Katie C.

I really liked the atmosphere of feeling like I was Dr. Pruitt's only patient instead of a number. After surgery the nurse made sure we had the number to contact the doctor if we needed anything after surgery-which made me feel more secure. Dr. Pruitt and his staff could not have been more professional and caring. I am so pleased with my facelift results. - Tracey H.

Dr. Pruitt and his staff took such great care of my daughter that I decided to see him for a facelift. I never felt scared or hesitant about the procedures he recommended. He and the staff answered all my questions and explained the phases of recovery, so I felt prepared for my procedures. I cannot thank you and your staff enough for the great care.

I am very happy with my tummy tuck results. However what has impressed me the most was when I called the office concerned about an issue, Dr. Pruitt came back to the office after surgery to see me. He could have put off until the next day, but he didn't. It turned out to be nothing, but I was worried about it. I was very impressed!
Tips & Advices
Plastic surgery comes from the Greek word “plastikos,” which means “to mold” or “to change.” Plastic surgery is a specialty in the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It includes cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, but also includes reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and burn treatment.
The vast majority of cosmetic surgical procedures occur on an outpatient basis. With more extensive surgery, such as a tummy tuck, a previous health condition, or monitoring is needed, the doctor might require a short hospital stay.
Depending on the procedure, cosmetic surgery can cost anywhere from several -hundred dollars for facial “filler” injections to $20,000 for extensive invasive surgery. In addition to the surgeon’s fee, the patient or insurance company will be responsible for a surgical facility fee, anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, and other miscellaneous costs related to surgery.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the top five cosmetic surgical procedures in 2016 were:
  • Liposuction (414,335 procedures)
  • Breast Augmentation (310,444 procedures)
  • Tummy Tuck (181,540 procedures)
  • Eyelid Surgery (173,883 procedures)
  • Breast Lift (161,412 procedures)
Common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures include Botox injections, laser hair removal, and laser skin resurfacing.
While there is no definitive age minimum or maximum for a given procedure, most doctors won’t operate on minors for cosmetic reasons. Beyond the actual surgery, the risks of general anesthesia should be a major consideration for elderly patients.  Good doctors will advise patients against a procedure they think is unnecessary, carries unwanted risk, or won’t produce the desired outcome.
