What is 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 adam's apple shaving, brow lift, rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation, chin reduction, and jaw contouring. It can be done before or after sex reassignment surgery.

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.

The cost of facial feminization surgery in Thailand can vary depending on the specific procedures performed, the surgeon's fee, and other factors such as the type of anesthesia and the facility used.
