About Skin Tightening
At birth, you have a full stock of the nutrients collagen and elastin that keep your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. However, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin of your body and face decreases in resiliency, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags.

"Breast augmentation was something that I had been thinking about since my third daughter was born 19 years ago. But as a stay at home mom/wife, it just never seemed to be “the right time”. I waited, patiently, until at last the timing was right! I did a lot of research and talked to many people. Dr. Basile was one of three Plastic Surgeons that I met with before making my final decision. From my initial consultation, I knew that I had found my plastic surgeon.Dr. Basile and his entire staff are nothing short of exceptional. First impressions are everything… when I arrived at the office, which by the way, was beautiful, clean and smelled AMAZING, I was greeted by Ashley, the patient care coordinator. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her welcoming smile. She put me in a consultation room where we talked for a bit and then she said Dr. Basile would be right in… and I don’t think I even waited five minutes to see him.The time everyone took with me was amazing, I never once felt rushed. Dr. Basile is a highly skilled surgeon with a good eye. I had done my research and when I went to my appointment I knew EXACTLY what I wanted. He listened as I explained, in detail, what I hoped my end result would be, then he offered his suggestions on what he thought would give me the best results.At my pre-op appointment he thoroughly explained the procedure and technique. Went through all of the medications and recovery, discussed any questions I had, and again, went through all of my “wish photos” that I showed him. From the time I had my consultation until now I called (or emailed) several times, I had a gazillion questions and Ashley was always patient, kind, courteous and professional. She ALWAYS made me feel like there was no silly question and regardless of how busy she was, I felt as if she was my very own personal patient coordinator, like I was their only patient.Finally - SURGERY DAY! I arrived at the surgery center at 6:30am. Feeling nothing more than excited! Dr. Basile came in, drew on my chest with a marker, and asked me again if I had any questions. Enter Operating Room, (ok, NOW maybe I’m feeling nervous) sleepy time, Dr. Basile “working his magic”, wake up, feel fine, go home. Took meds as prescribed. Saw Dr. Basile first thing the next morning.The meds made me sick, (which is typical for me) but as far as pain, I really didn’t have any. I also didn’t have ANY bruising, not at all. I followed Dr.’s orders exactly as they were given to me. I had a “slight” complication, which was absolutely NO FAULT of Dr. Basile or the surgery center, (it was something that would have happened regardless of who my surgeon was) Dr. Basile handled it in a way that eased my mind. He’s not a “wait and see” doctor, when I called to say something was wrong, he had me in his office that day, even though I had just seen him 2 days prior. I saw him every few days for the next 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 months after that. I am now a little over 6 months post up, doing great and have very minimal scars already, and they will still continue to heal. I’m beyond happy with my results.I could go on and on, but the bottom line is Dr. Basile gave me exactly what I asked for. My Experience with Dr. Basile and his staff was exceptional. I highly recommend Basile Plastic Surgery."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Apr 25, 2018

"Dr. Basille and his assistant Marissa have been absolutely fabulous. After researching extensively for a good surgeon for breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, I finally chose Dr. Basille due to his extensive knowledge, his politeness and honesty. I loved his no frills approach and how thorough he was. He listened and went over all my options in detail. The cosmetic industry is overwhelming and choosing a cosmetic surgeon can be daunting and tiresome. So I am hoping by leaving this review and being so exhilarated by my results, I have done the hard work for so many. If you want a meticulous Dr who will make you look amazing look no further."- A.L. / Google / Mar 16, 2023
"I can’t say enough good things about Dr.Basile and his entire office! From the moment you walk in you’re greeted by smiling faces. I have had both disport and filler with Dr. Basile. I’ve been having both for many years and had it done at many places and he is by far the best with placement. I am extremely happy to have found him. He is very kind and makes you feel at ease. I have also seen both Diana for laser hair removal and Alissa for skin care. Between the three you have a an absolute dream team."- E.R. / Google / Nov 28, 2022

Surgery for skin tightening, or "lifts" like a face or body lift, are still the best option to improve loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option if you don't want to have cosmetic surgery. ThermiTight may be done on many areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this treatment:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
- Want to enhance the appearance and health of their skin
To start the session, the skin to be treated will be sanitized to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. Local anesthesia options may be considered if you would prefer; however, many patients feel that any possible pain from the radiofrequency energy is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a handpiece with a small electrode will be inserted underneath the skin of the area being treated. The radiofrequency energy released by the handpiece heats up the tissues to a safe level and encourages the body to begin the production of elastin and collagen that will firm and tighten the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and if multiple areas are being treated. Once the session is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your daily routine.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening appointment, the affected skin can be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and you will clear up naturally in several days. In your consult, Dr. Basile will talk about methods to care for the treated skin at home after your session, like keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun and environmental damage. Many patients won't have noticeable improvements right after their session. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a slow process, you should have the total results of the procedure around several months after your session, though you may begin to see some results after around one month. Your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin. You may require several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, Dr. Basile can help you determine your personalized plan for treatment to meet your concerns and goals.
