Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is an important aspect of the gender affirmation process aimed at synchronizing a patient’s facial appearance with their gender identity. FFS is an umbrella term referring to a group of procedures which are used to emphasize a feminine appearance.
These procedures include:
- Scalp/Hairline Advancement
- Brow Contouring/Forehead Feminization
- Brow Lifting
- Feminizing Rhinoplasty
- Cheek Implants
- Jaw Reduction and Chin Recontouring
- Adams Apple Reduction
- Lip Lift
Typically, the scope of a patient’s needs are assessed during their consultation and an individualized treatment plan is designed that will involve some, if not all, of these procedures. They can be done either simultaneously or in stages. Additionally, some patients may also benefit from other facial cosmetic procedures, especially liposuction, buccal fat pad removal, blepharoplasty and face and neck lifting to help further refine and feminize their appearance. We work closely with a broad spectrum of providers at Mount Sinai’s Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (link) along with numerous other providers throughout the New York region and United States to make sure we are providing the best possible care for patients.
