In the arena of facial feminization, a particular set of plastic surgery and craniofacial procedures are performed to soften and redefine facial features. As such, facial feminization surgery (FFS) is often part of gender confirmation for transgender individuals. Yet, it can also benefit females that feel as though their features are too masculine looking. With this in mind, there are varying techniques and methods used to perform facial feminization surgery (FFS), as noted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In addition, a number of factors need to be considered before choosing which options best suit each individual.
When it comes to plastic surgery of any kind, individuals usually have an ideal image in mind, hoping to conform to what they see in a magazine or on social media. Yet, given the highly personalized nature of facial feminization, it’s always best to seek surgery for yourself. This begins with having a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
Facial feminization is generally a good option if an individual has been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, or if a person has been living as a member of their desired sex. For women hoping to reshape masculine features, common complaints relate to the forehead being too high or pronounced, the brow being too heavy, eyes that are deeply set or a jawline that is too wide or angular.
Depending on a patient’s existing facial characteristics and features, as well as their unique desires, a plastic surgeon may opt for one surgical procedure or a series of procedures. These include:
- Scalp or Hairline Advancement
- Brow Contouring or Forehead Feminization
- Brow Lifting
- Feminizing Rhinoplasty
- Cheek Implants
- Jaw Reduction and Chin Recontouring
- Adams Apple Reduction
- Lip Lift
