Facial implant - cosmetic plastic surgery to change the shape of the chin, cheek or jaw. This procedure is typically done to improve certain facial features, or to bring a certain aspect of the face into proportion with the rest of the facial structures.

Flap - A mass of partially detached tissue. A skin flap contains only skin. Flaps of hair-laden scalp can be used to treat baldness.

Flap surgery - one type of surgery that involves transporting healthy, live tissue from one location of the body to another - often to regions that have lost skin, fat, muscle movement and/or skeletal support. There are several different types of flap surgery techniques that may be utilized, depending upon the location of the flap and the structures that need to be repaired.

Fibrous Cysts - Fluid filled masses in the breast that 25-30% of women experience at one time in their lives. Some women develop more cysts than others which might affect the decision to get breast implants.

Forehead lift - the surgical removal of excess fat and skin, as well as a tightening of the muscles in the forehead area. It can correct sagging brows or deep furrows between the eyes. It is regularly performed in conjunction with a facelift in order to create a smoother facial appearance overall.

Face lift - See rhytidectomy

Fascia - A type of connective tissue used in lip augmentation to produce fuller lips. This product is made from human donor tissue.
