FFS Evaluation: Photo tips

January 18, 2014

To receive an evaluation by email or correspondence, we will need the following:

  1. A precise description of what you would like to change with FFS.
  2. Three photos: frontal, profile and 3/4 lateral (or 45 º), such as in the example at the bottom of the page.
  3. Your full name and surname, country of residence, and contact telephone or Skype/Google+ username.

Keep in mind the tips below:

  • Don’t hold the camera yourself and try not to use mirrors.
  • Keep the camera at least 6 feet (2 metres) away from your face.
  • Camera Angle: The camera should be at eye level. Try to keep your head and gaze horizontal
  • The pictures should be well lit and in focus, but not in direct sunlight.
  • Keep a blank expression, without a smile.
  • It is best to turn your whole body to get the different angles rather than just turning your head.
  • Keep your hair tied back so your cheeks and forehead are revealed
  • Picture Size. Up to 1 MB is sufficient
  • Try to have a blank, neutral color background
  • Don’t wear glasses.
  • Make-up: It’s fine to wear light make-up, but avoid heavy eyeliner or eye-shadows.

2.Tres fotos: un perfil, frontal, y 3 / 4 laterales (o 45 º) como en el ejemplo arriba.

Por favor, tenga en cuenta los siguientes consejos:

  1. No sostenga la cámara usted mismo y trate de no usar los espejos.
  2. Mantenga la cámara por lo menos 6 pies (2 metros) de distancia de su cara.
  3. Ángulo de cámara: la cámara debe estar a nivel de los ojos. Trate de mantener la cabeza y la mirada horizontal.
  4. Las imágenes deben estar bien iluminadas y en foco, pero no en la luz solar directa.
  5. Mantenga una expresión relajada, sin una sonrisa.
  6. Lo mejor es dar vuelta a su cuerpo entero para obtener los diferentes ángulos en lugar de girar la cabeza sola.
  7. Mantenga el cabello recogido hacia atrás para que sus mejillas y la frente se revelan.
  8. Tamaño de la imagen. Hasta 1 MB es suficiente.
  9. Trate de tener un fondo claro, con color neutro.
  10. No use anteojos.
  11. Maquillaje: Está bien usar un poco de base de maquillaje, pero evite el delineador de ojos muy marcadas y las sombras.

    1. Dear Jessica, Thanks for visiting us. Yes, that´s right. More procedures mean a longer surgery and therefore more operating theatre costs. It also depends on the type of procedures, some are more complicated than others and take more time. If you would like an evaluation with a quote, please send photos to info@facialteam.eu. Thanks!

    1. So much depends on the individual case. Please send us photos and the info requested by filling in the form on our website. Our quotes range from 6.000 – 12.000 Euros normally for one or two procedures.

  1. What is the average cost of 2 surgeries in your Brazil location? Also what is the currency your Brazil location accepts?

    1. Hello! Normally we encourage English-speaking patients to attend our Marbella location, which is better prepared for this language. The currency is Euro. In Brazil, the costs are basically the same, but payment is in USD or Brazilian reais. The total depends on what the two surgeries are and how long the surgery is. The first step is to have a consultation with the surgeon, either in person, videoconference, or simply by sending photos by email. Please fill in our form on this website. Thanks!

  2. How much it cost a forehead surgery in Brazilian reais? I mean i would do it in FacialTeam here, in Brazil.
