Dr. Bassichis, a double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and leading national expert in facial injectibles, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, is on the forefront of injectible technologies that have revolutionized facial rejuvenation. He is honored to participate in this unique philanthropic initiative with Allergan Medical to make the world a more beautiful place -- by both BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and helping our global friends in Africa.

I feel a personal obligation to participate in this project by donating my time and expertise. With everything that's going on in the world, this represents an example of effective world cooperation and community. I'm humbled to be a part of this visionary initiative to save vision in Africa.

Leading BOTOX® Cosmetic injector Dr. Benjamin Bassichis has been selected to represent Dallas, Texas, in a unique national fundraiser to be held at the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center on Friday November 16, 2007. All profits Dr. Bassichis' procedures will be dedicated to curing blindness in Africa through the Eyes of Africa Initiative of the One World Sight Project.
The Eyes of Africa Initiative will take the growing trend of women and men getting treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic in the United States and turn it into a philanthropic call to action to end blindness in Africa. Cataracts are responsible for almost half of the 7 million blind Africans despite the availability of a simple $25-50 procedure that could permanently restore their sight.

Allergan (makers of BOTOX® and BOTOX® Cosmetic) has donated enough product to support the fundraising initiative and the doctors are entirely donating their time.

After being selected to join this effort because of his extensive experience with the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce frown lines, Dr. Bassichis shares, "I feel a personal obligation to participate in this project by donating my time and expertise. With everything that's going on in the world, this represents an example of effective world cooperation and community. I'm humbled to be a part of this visionary initiative to save vision in Africa."

The Eyes of Africa Initiative is working to raise more than $250,000 in an effort to complete the first comprehensive training center for community ophthalmology in all of Africa, located in Moshi, Tanzania (near Mt. Kilimanjaro), and is made possible by a generous contribution of BOTOX® Cosmetic from Allergan Medical, a division of Allergan, Inc. More information about this project can be found at http://www.endblindness.org.

In addition to BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers the full spectrum of age-defying facial cosmetic and reconstructive procedures under the care of Dr. Benjamin Bassichis, a double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Bassichis focuses exclusively on aesthetic procedures of the face, head and neck. A leading national expert in facial injectibles, including BOTOX, Dr. Bassichis is on the forefront of these technologies that have revolutionized facial rejuvenation. Because Dr. Bassichis personally performs all injectible treatments himself, he has the opportunity to develop strong, long-term relationships with his patients. Other services offered include facial fillers, laser services, and surgical procedures including rhinoplasty, facelift, brow and eyelid surgeries. Please contact us to make your appointment to be involved in this amazing opportunity to beautify yourself while making the world a more beautiful place.
