How FFS Surgery Helps Patients Who Just Want to Be Themselves

FFS Surgery Helps Patients

Facial feminization has been classified as a kind of “rebirth” for transgender patients.

Comparing FFS to Cosmetic Procedures

5 Facial Procedures with the Least Amount of Downtime

Least Amount of Downtime

If you’re thinking of getting a facelift or another significant surgery, but the prospect of a lengthy recovery has you second-guessing yourself, it may be wise to consider other options. Here, you will learn more about five different facial procedures with very little downtime (if any at all) that can rejuvenate your skin to make you look and feel decades younger.

#1 – Botox Injections

Botox is a simple, easy way to minimize and perhaps even erase the appearance of even the deepest wrinkles. During a session, your facial aesthetics team will inject the “problem areas” you describe with a small amount of botulinum toxin, which essentially relaxes the muscles just below your face. In turn, this relaxes the skin and helps smooth out wrinkles. Following each session, patients may experience a little discomfort, swelling, and redness, but this is temporary and typically goes away in a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months with most patients returning for treatments after four months.

Does Social Media Play a Role in Plastic Surgery Trends?

Social Media & Plastic Surgery

Each year, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reviews the surgical procedures that took place the year before. Per their latest report, 2017 was one of the busiest years for plastic surgeons to date. In fact, these experts believe that 2018 will be even busier, and they claim social media is driving demand for several popular procedures.

The Stand-Out Trends for 2017

The 2017 report showed that the average number of non-invasive procedures performed across the country has increased by some 25% since 2012, representing a huge increase in demand. What’s more, the millennial generation has embraced injectables – particularly dermal fillers and Botox – to the point that 80% of all the treatments performed in 2017 were cosmetic and non-surgical in nature. What is driving this dramatic increase in the number of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures? Per Patrick Byrne, the director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and an AAFPRS board member, it’s all about the selfie culture.

Voice Feminization

Voice feminization is an integral step in the journey undergone by transgender individuals seeking gender confirmation. But what is voice feminization exactly, and why is it so important?

What It is

Voice feminization is a process where a man’s voice is altered so that it can be higher pitched like a female’s. A man’s vocal cords are longer, which produce a deeper sound and more vibrations. These differences are very distinct and defining when it comes to a person’s gender.

Is the Traditional Facelift Changing?

Traditional Facelift Changing

A facelift is a common plastic surgery procedure which is medically known as rhytidectomy. It is one of the oldest forms of plastic surgery according to historical records. The invention of the facelift can be dated back to somewhere between 1901 and 1907.

Facelift History

Way back in the early 1900’s, the procedure we know today was obviously quite different. For starters, the results were mediocre at best, and the surgery came at a very steep price. There were a lot of complications, with the most common occurring due to infections from nonsterile practices and shoddy anesthesia methods.

Facelift or Botox

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure which allows the face to become firmer and more youthful in appearance. It aids in diminishing wrinkles and improving problem areas like sagging skin on the neck. The important thing to remember is that this is a surgical procedure, and as such it can require up to two weeks recovery time for some patients before they are ready to resume their daily activities.

The results of a facelift are permanent, although the effects of aging will begin to show again after an extended period. By taking loving care of your body and face after the surgery, you can extend the life of your facelift results for over a decade.
