27/07/14 5 4 5 5 I am rating Roger Bassin after a recent surgery. The cosmetic surgery was related to excess belly and arm fat. I am very busy working in the behind the scene's camera stuff for a local network affiliate . But that said I still like to look good. I should be retired but I love my job. I try to keep up my appearance . The Dr. Bassin took a special interest in my case and worked with me even when I had to reschedule 3 times. The arms are looking way better the lipo has motivated me to work out more.I would recommend Roger Bassin to anyone . I am a real patient and can be contacted if you wish.

19/07/14 1 1 1 1 I had the worst experience ever with Dr. Bassin & I am deformed for life. My outer thighs are concave. So embarrassing I won't wear a bathing suit ever again. The office lied to me when I asked if he was a board certified plastic surgeon or I wouldn't have gone to him. He is an Opthamologist & I don't know how he can get away with doing plastic surgery. He doesn't know what he is doing & he doesn't care about his patients. He only wants the money. I don't know how the man sleeps at night. He is obviously a sociopath -- I've been to other surgeons to see if there is a repair & they just shake their head. One told me he's already seen 11 of Dr. Bassins patients and there are more on the books. Why can't anything be done about this butcher?  Respond

09/07/14 5 5 5 5 I felt compelled to post a review . The Bassin Center was good to me . I experienced a polite staff as well as the Dr Bassin I also spoke to Dr Mendoza. My issue was my the inner thigh area . I heard about the new Lipo they use . I went through the surgery with no problems . It did sting a little when they injected the numbing medication but other than that all was good. The cost for everything was not bad . My sister is scheduled for next month so I guess that means I liked what I see now.

04/06/14 4 5 1 2 When me and my husband arrived at the office, the staff was nice and helpful. The first interview with Dr bassin went well he sounded very convinced that the procedure will work very well. He also mention the procedure will be painless . The next time we saw him was at the time of the procedure, here things changed, everything seem to be in a rush nevertheless I stayed calm. Once the procedure started, my God it was very painful, and believe me I can take a lot of pain! I tried to tell him how painful it was, but he just did not seem to care at all an continued with the procedure despite that he can clearly see that I was in pain. To me seems that time and rush me out was mor important than anything else. He was done in less than 45 minutes and I had paid 5000 dollars. The results were not at all dramatic like he mentioned . His explanation is that this is how my body heals. I am relatively young 49 y/I so needless to say I extremely disappointed, what a waste of money, time and pain.  Respond

11/03/13 5 5 5 5 While discussing the vision problems I was having with my eye doctor, he recommended that I see Dr. Bassin about my upper eyelids as they were drooping and affecting my vision. While I was there we began talking about other things. I decided to go ahead, at the age of 74 years old and just go for it. I got a QuickLift, NaturalFill to my face, and my eyelids done. Everyone at the Bassin Center was great! Nancy, the nurse, was wonderful, and my overall experience was excellent. I am very happy that it is my same face and I just look refreshed. I am receiving lots of compliments about my new look. Dr. Bassin is very down to earth.  Respond

28/02/13 5 5 5 5 My husband and I were on a cruise and when I looked at the photos of myself I wasn't happy at all. I had way too many wrinkles. Then, my husband and I were watching the Dr. Oz show featuring Dr. Bassin. I liked what I heard and decided to go and see him. I am very pleased with his work and feel I made the right decision.  Respond

11/12/12 2 1 2 1 I am also a victim of Bassin. I too sought his expertise with sagging jowels after hearing about him on Dr. Oz. After a 5 minute consult, he said a surgical procedure would be overkill, and recommended the Endimed Thermacool procedure, which supposedly damages the collagen which then forces new collagen to develop tightening the skin. His assistant Amy performed the procedure, she was quick to show me the "immediate" results after completing the right side of my face. It was visibly tighter, but then she informs me that this immediate result is temporary and it will take between 3 and 6 months for the final result. I knew something was fishy then. I had ZERO results from the scam treatment. When I contacted Amy and went back to show my lack of results, she contacted me a week later and said she spoke with Dr. Bassin who offered to give me a $800 discount to repeat the procedure or a discount on Juvaderm injections! He got my money and I got nothing. He and his staff are crooks  Respond

16/10/12 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Bassin after talking to a friend about my growing interest in removing a mole I had close to my eye. She urged me to see Dr. Bassin instead of a general plastic surgeon because of his vast experience in facial plastic surgery. I was put at ease after my consultation with him as he was friendly, down to earth, and interested in my concerns. A simple procedure that was high risk due to the moles location turned out to be a breeze. No scaring and zero recovery. He did an amazing job and treated my procedure with as much caution and respect as he does his more complicated and serious surgeries.

10/10/12 5 5 5 5 I came to this office after viewing the website. I received EasyLift and thermage on my arms and stomach. Amy was professional, thoughtful, and tried to make me as comfortable as she could. I also chose the EasyLift because I could have an in office procedure and no anesthesia. It did not bother me to be awake. I will let you know about the thermage as results are not seen for 3-10 months. Its been 2 weeks since the EasyLift and I am very pleased. I feel like you really listened to my concerns and the results so far are wonderful. The nurses were great!

21/08/12 5 5 5 5 I had DOT therapy done at Dr. Bassin's Melbourne office on a Friday afternoon. The treatment was faster than I expected and felt exactly as explained. Each day following my treatment, my skin looked just like a bad sunburn, pealed and as soon as I followed up with my recommended facial, I have the most amazing skin. My old blemish scars, sun spot damage and age spots were gone! I am very happy with my results and would suggest DOT Therapy to anyone considering any skin treatment.

24/05/12 5 5 5 5 I was ashamed of my appearance all my later life. I stayed in the background because I felt everyone was talking about me and my severe deep wrinkles. I finally decided I was going to do something about it for me and feel better about myself. I received a mini facelift and Dot Laser Therapy. With the Mini facelift, the first 24 hours was very uncomfortable. But Dr. Bassin, Nancy and his staff are the most caring, wonderful and sweet people you could ever have. My results are Wonderful!!! Wonderful!! I am thrilled beyond belief. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!

23/05/12 5 5 5 5 I came to Dr. Bassin’s office because of my stomach. I have tried just to lose a few pounds to relieve the stuffiness. SmartLipo was the best investment. I went from a size 10 to size 6 in three months after the procedure. I should have exercised and taken better care of myself but with no exercise and diets, three years later I am still a size six! The staff was warm and welcoming. It was a wonderful experience. I have recommended this procedure to everyone I know.  Respond

11/05/12 5 4 5 5 My experience with Dr. Bassin and his staff has been wonderful. I found him to be very personable and his staff extremely helpful. I had my own body fat injected into my marionette lines and nasal labial folds and botox done. The procedure was nothing like the pain I had with Juvederm injections. It does take several weeks to see the full effects but I am very happy with the results. Especially since I have heard some positive comments on the outcome. I would not hesitate to use Dr. Bassin again.  Respond

06/05/12 3 4 1 3 I totally agree with all the reviews on this website. I just recently had a Aqualipo and when I went for my Postop, the Doctor nor the nurse had any time to see me. The woman (very nice) who saw me had no idea on how to answer any of my concerns. On the Postop Instructions it says to message the area two times a day for 3 weeks. What they fail to do is to explain how this would be done. If anyone knows, please post it. My experience with Dr. Bassin was pretty scary. I had a lot of bruising and looked like a monster. I was asked to go back, but not for Dr. Bassin to see me but just to take some pictures. I think he's really unprofessional. I would never recommend anyone that I know to him.  Respond

19/01/11 2 2 1 2 I had my brows lifted by Dr. Bassin in 2006. I went to Dr. Bassin office after seeing him on the local news. We also discussed filler around the mouth for fine lines. At this time Dr. Bassin said he would do the fillers at the time of the brow lift, so I would not have any pain. The day of the surgery, about 5 minutes before I was put under, I had to remind him of the fillers, that I had already paid for, and he told me that this was not a good idea! I could not believe he changed his mind 5 minutes before I was to be put under! He recommended fraxel at the time. I agreed. ( What else was I going to do?) I was very dissappointed with the follow up on my brow lift.( Or lack there of) I had to scheldule the follow ups, and there was no follow up pictures taken. Dr. Bassin also told me I could go out in public 1 week after the brow lift. This was a lie, I still had stitches in 2 weeks later! He rushed me in and out and I am uphappy with my results.  Respond

22/07/10 5 5 5 5 I wanted to find out about spider vein removal on my legs. I went in to see Dr. Bassin about this. First I had the Sclerotherapy procedure done and was so pleased with the results that I made an appointment to discuss AquaLipo on my arms and abdomen. After my AquaLipo procedure I had NaturalFil on my smile and marionette lines. The procedure was not painful at all and I was fully awake for the entire time. The AquaLipo took about a week to recover from, the first day being uncomfortable. The NaturalFill gave me slight bruising, but it was not painful at all. My belly fat was reduced significantly, as was my upper arm fat. I now can wear sleeveless blouses with pride and went from a size 10 to a size 6 in my pants size. I am very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Bassin. His personality is very down to earth and he shares his knowledge with other doctors.  Respond

I would recommend this procedure to anyone who is having the same troubles I was.  Respond

13/04/10 2 3 2 2 Do not use this doctor for plastic surgery, He is not a trained member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which says a lot. Also,it looks like Dr. bassin and his staff have filled this site with good reviews to affect his rating and advertising. I had 4 small proceedures done by this Doctor of Opthamology and 3 of them had a bad outcome. He is not skilled and he rushes through his operations. I was in his office a few weeks ago, hoping to get my money back. 11 patients were waiting to see him. Some of us got to talking about our experiences. 8 of us were very unhappy with the outcome of our surgeries. His neck and eye lifts are very bad and no one was satisfied. Dr. Bassin likes to recrute patients from The Villages in Florida, a retirement community of 75,000 or so. There is an unending supply of victims here. Some of us are getting together to publicize how bad his work is. Truly, do not use this doctor. He is unskilled and you will only be unhappy.  See Responses

11/10/09 2 2 2 2 The office staff seems very disorganized which is a shame because once your surgery is done you will never see or hear from Dr. Bassin again. In my experience, pre- and post-operative followup is sketchy and inconsistent, including response to post-operative problems. Dr. Bassin does not seem to do all of the surgeries, and you are asked to sign a form agreeing to this. I would have to agree with other posters that, once your check is cashed, the office seems to lose interest pretty quickly. In fact, I was never called by the office with an appointment to have my sutures removed (I had to initiate the call), and I was later told that traveling to the office for post-operative pictures is "not really necessary", making me wonder whether this doctor stands behind the quality of his work.  Respond

I received excellent compassionate care by not only by Dr. Bassin but his entire office staff. The Smart Lipo was a WONDERFUL success.

29/04/09 1 1 1 1 After having my 4th child I was very sensitive about the belly fat. My in laws are all a size 3 and they missed no opportunity to rub it in especially my mother-in-law who lives with us. My husband trying to make me feel better told me to get the "smart lipo" if not the dumbest thing I have ever done then a close second. They care about your money. I lost only my money no weight and on top of that I have 2 horrible scars to remind me of my stupidity. Do not trust him. Ten months later I am still in pain and they never scheduled a follow up visit even when I called to complain of the pain. Save your time and money we can't all be wrong. The office and staff will woo you along with the Dr. but remember once you pay you will be forgotten. I wish I could turn back time and save my money and more importantly my health because since his procedure my body has not been the same and not in a good way.  See Responses

He used an old fashioned power-assist unit briefly. Needless to say, I got no results. Still went through the recovery from severe bruising and swelling from the PAL unit, but without the benefit.

09/12/07 1 1 1 2 Beware of the equipment failing during your thermacool procedure . You'll quickly find that there is no gaurantee . I had the procedure and the thermacool machine was inconsistent throughout and I was quickly dismissed as a patient to get rid of me and my overall dissatisfaction at having spent $3,500 for literally nothing. That the machine kept beeping this annoying beep and then the technician got flustered and kept fiddling with the machine turning it on and off several times, resetting it and swapping out the cord was indicative that the maching that they use for the procedure was not working properly. If you offer a quality service you back it up with a gaurantee. Dr. Bassin does not do this. Beware.  Respond
