Wrinkles and lines in the upper face can create what is referred to as Crow's feet and other unattractive creases that lead a patient to look older than they are. For individuals who are suffering from moderate to severe wrinkles and are wishing to avoid invasive procedures, our New York, NY plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Bass, recommends Xeomin. Xeomin is comprised of similar substances as BOTOX, derived from the natural toxin botulinum type A, which is able to relax the muscles and smooth out lines in the upper face. Bass Plastic Surgery offers Xeomin injections as an alternative to BOTOX as it has no additives, making it a more suitable option for patients who may have allergic or adverse reactions to other injectables. Dr. Bass is happy to consult with each patient beforehand to ensure that they fully understand the benefits of Xeomin and our other FDA-approved wrinkle treatments.
"I had a breast reduction with Dr. Bass in July. Everything from the consultation to the follow up appointments to the office staff was wonderful. I'm so pleased with the results and should've done this years ago. Dr. Bass is attentive and very thorough. The office staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Bass!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 02, 2017

"I had surgery performed by Dr. Bass. I found him to be caring with more aftercare than to had anticipated. I am a patient at the Great Neck office and found everyone there to be helpful, thorough, and caring. I would highly recommend this practice."- M. / Healthgrades / Nov 18, 2020
"Great Surgeon for Male Rhinoplasty - Dr. Bass performed my rhinoplasty along with a medically indicated septoplasty. I'm happy with the results, in terms of both look and function (i.e. snoring is cured, breathing noticeably improved).Male rhinoplasty is a difficult procedure to get right; my understanding is that it has a lower patient satisfaction rate than most cosmetic procedures. Thus, it is especially important to find the right surgeon with the knowledge, skill and experience, who can discuss expectations in a clear and honest manner. I fully recommend Dr. Bass.Dr. Bass is very patient and caring, especially for a surgeon of his renown. Pre-operative consultation was very thorough and he was generous with his time. Recovery from any nasal surgery is unpleasant and good post-operative care is important; again, I'm pleased with his & his staff's empathy and responsiveness.Finally, I'm grateful that Dr. Bass was able to accommodate my schedule and coordinate with her colleague Dr. Franziska Huettner (another outstanding surgeon), so I could have multiple procedures with the downtime of one."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 23, 2020

Some of the best candidates for receiving the FDA-cleared wrinkle injection Xeomin will have:
- Moderate lines, wrinkles, and folds in the forehead, around the eyes, and other places in the upper face
- A desire for a nonsurgical option with no downtime
- A desire for natural-looking results
- Had adverse reactions to BOTOX and seek an injectable with no additives
- Realistic expectations for their outcome
What to Expect
Xeomin is performed at one of our Bass Plastic Surgery offices in New York, NY. It is a comfortable procedure that can take as little as 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Bass will mark the treatment sites beforehand so as to deliver precise and accurate injections for desirable results. A small prick may be felt during this time, but numbing creams can be made available upon request. There is no downtime typically associated with a Xeomin injection; however, some redness, tenderness, and swelling may result for a short time following the treatment.
The results from Xeomin typically take around 1 week to settle in and reveal smoother, tighter skin with continued improvement for up to 2 weeks. Depending on the case and how severe the wrinkles are, the injection can last for around 3 – 4 months. After the effects have become less visible, patients are invited to schedule a follow-up injection to maintain their appearance.
