What is Facial Feminization Surgery?

Facial feminization surgery

Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is a set of surgical procedures designed to help individuals who identify as female or who have gender dysphoria to achieve a more feminine appearance. This surgery involves making changes to the face, neck and forehead to create a more feminine appearance. FFS may include procedures such as adams apple shaving, brow lift, rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation, chin reduction, and jaw contouring. It can be done before or after sex reassignment surgery. The specific procedures involved in facial feminization surgery can vary depending on the patient's needs and desired outcomes. Here are some common procedures performed as part of facial feminization surgery:

  1. Forehead contouring: This procedure involves reshaping the forehead to create a more feminine appearance.
  2. Rhinoplasty: Nose reshaping surgery, or rhinoplasty, aims to achieve a more delicate and feminine nasal structure.
  3. Jaw Contouring: Jaw contouring surgery helps soften a prominent or square jawline to create a more feminine facial profile.
  4. Chin Reduction or Augmentation: Depending on the patient's needs, either chin reduction or augmentation may be performed to achieve facial harmony.
  5. Lip Lift or Lip Augmentation: These procedures aim to enhance the appearance of the lips, creating a more feminine shape and volume.
  6. Adams Apple Shaving: A tracheal shave procedure reduces the prominence of the Adam's apple, creating a smoother neck contour.
  7. Cheek Augmentation: Cheek augmentation involves enhancing the volume and contour of the cheeks to achieve a more feminine appearance. This can be done using implants, fat transfer, or dermal fillers.
  8. Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can help create a more feminine and youthful appearance by addressing droopy or heavy eyelids.

Preparing for Facial Feminization Surgery

Before undergoing facial feminization surgery, patients will typically have a consultation with their surgeon to discuss their goals and what they can realistically expect from the procedure. Your surgeon will also evaluate your medical history, any existing medical conditions and provide recommendations for a healthy lifestyle and preparation leading up to the surgery.

The Surgery and Recovery Process

Facial feminization surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete, depending on the number of procedures performed. During the surgery, the surgeon will make incisions in discreet areas and make changes to the underlying bone and tissue to achieve the desired feminine appearance.

The recovery period after facial feminization surgery is generally between 1 to 2 weeks, during which time patients may experience swelling and discomfort. Pain medication will be prescribed to help manage any discomfort, and patients will be advised to limit their physical activity for the first few weeks to promote healing. Most patients can return to work and normal activities after 2-4 weeks, although it's important to follow your surgeon's postoperative instructions for the best results.
