So many trees and shrubs were damaged by the latest freeze so you are in good company! Historically, another freeze is possible until the third week of February so hold off pruning until the end of the month. By then you'll see new growth appearing and you can prune away the dead leaves and branch tips on your ficus. I think your ficus will recover by the end of the summer. Best wishes with your landscape.
