What Is FFS?

Facial feminization surgery entails transforming what some may consider masculine features into softer, more feminine ones. There are many surgical techniques used in feminization, and these include things like jaw contouring, chin reshaping, nasal tip refinement, facelift, cheek augmentation, and more. Some of the techniques used in FFS are minimally invasive and require the injection of dermal fillers. Oftentimes, the process behind feminizing the face requires both. The FFS consultation offered by Palm Beach Plastics helps Dr. Mardirossian determine which of these procedures will work best for each individual patient.

Facelift Recovery

What is the Typical Recovery Time for a Facelift?

Facelift Recovery

Men and women who want to look younger and more vibrant turn to many different procedures these days. Some prefer Botox, some like facial fillers, and others go for the full package with a complete facelift. There are four stages to recovering from a facelift, and this recovery goes faster for some than it does for others.
 

 

Stage 1 – Rest

One of the worst things you can do for your body after a facelift is stay in bed. Although you will not feel like doing much for the first few days, and the painkillers may make it difficult to do much at all, you should feel good enough by the third or fourth day to move around a little. Chances are good that you will feel some fatigue and maybe a little nausea for the first few days, but these will quickly subside. Remember that movement lends to circulation, and when you can circulate the blood through your body, this helps speed your recovery. This first stage lasts about a week.

Fat Transfer

Is there an Advantage to Using your Own Fat to Transfer?

Fat Transfer

People who have lost volume in their face often want a more permanent solution than what dermal fillers provide. They may also have fatty deposits in certain areas of the body they would like to remove. A fat transfer to restore facial volume has numerous benefits, and here are just a few of them.

What is a Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure whereby fat is removed from one area of the body and then injected into another. This requires two procedures to be performed: liposuction to remove fat, and an injection to reinsert it into the area desired. In between these two procedures, fat must be purified to ensure it is sterile enough to be injected. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, but do require the use of anesthesia.

Why a Chemical Peel could be the Answer for your Skin

If you would like to improve the overall appearance of your skin, you don’t necessarily have to spend a great deal of money on expensive beauty products or undergo invasive cosmetic surgery.

Corrects Multiple Issues

Chemical peels can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne, scars, and scaly patches of skin, among other things. This means you do not need to undergo multiple treatments in order to improve the look of your skin.
