"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

What to Expect
The patient’s face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the procedure. A handpiece with a measure grade of abrasive grit will be rubbed over the surface of the skin while a graded amount of suction is applied. This polishes the skin while at the same time dead skin cells and other debris will be suctioned away and pores cleaned. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which plays a key role in skin firmness. The treatment also makes the skin more susceptible to the effects of masks and serums which can be applied during the same treatment. Treatment can take 30 – 60 minutes to complete.
There’s no downtime with microdermabrasion, but the skin will look pink and also feel dry and tight for about 1 day after treatment. A medicated moisturizer will be applied after the treatment to alleviate these side effects. There will be visible results right after microdermabrasion, where patients should experience smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin. For full results, 4-6 treatments are recommended every 2 – 3 weeks.
