Facial Feature Remodeling Surgery (FFRS)
For decades everybody talked about Facial Feminization Surgery when one tried to change the facial features from male to female ones. Now it is time to introduce a new concept, with a more appropriate and global name.
It refreshes and rejuvenates the look by correcting those traits that contribute to make you look older and tired, such as the “bags” on the lower eyelids and sagging upper eyelids. It removes eyelid puffiness caused by excess of fat inside the eyelids. It improves the sight by trimming down the upper eyelids when they droop too much and interfere with the vision. It doesn’t remove crow’s feet and it doesn’t remove dark circles under the eyes.
The surgeon makes the incisions along the natural folds of the eyelids, this way the resulting scars will be disguised. On the upper eyelids the incision is done along its natural folds, and on the lower eyelids it is done just below the eyelashes. In some cases, the incisions extend some millimeters beyond the corners of the eyes. Working through these incisions the surgeon removes the excess of fat that accumulates beneath the skin. He also trims the excess skin of the bags that give the eyes that sagging and tired look. Then he closes the incisions with stitches.
If you have bags but you don’t need to have any skin trimmed, the surgeon may do a transconjuctival blepharoplasty. In this procedure, the incisions are made inside the eyelids and they leave no visible scars, but it is necessary for the skin to be thick, firm and elastic, so it is generally indicated for young patients.
With this procedure your eyes will look fresher and more suggestive and your face will look much more relaxed and young. You will be able to appreciate the results after a few weeks, and they are usually permanent. The scars will become almost invisible after a few months.
