Understanding Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)
Facial feminization surgery is a collection of surgical procedures designed to alter facial features, enhancing feminine characteristics and creating a more harmonious appearance. It is a highly personalized process that takes into account each individual’s unique facial structure and desired outcomes. FFS can include various procedures such as forehead contouring, rhinoplasty, jaw reshaping, chin augmentation, teeth reshaping or smile makeovers and more.
The FFS Procedure
Facial feminization typically involves a series of procedures tailored to meet the individual’s specific needs. While the exact combination of surgeries may vary, here are some common procedures often included in FFS:
- Forehead Contouring: This procedure involves reshaping the forehead to create a more feminine hairline and reduce the prominence of the brow ridge.
- Rhinoplasty: Nose reshaping can help achieve a more delicate and feminine appearance by refining the shape and size of the nose.
- Jaw Reshaping: By altering the jawline, FFS can create a softer and more feminine facial contour.
- Chin Augmentation: Enhancing the chin can improve facial balance and create a more feminine profile.
- Lip Lift: This procedure shortens the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose, resulting in a more youthful and feminine appearance.
- Smile makeover: reshaping the teeth whether using the natural teeth or utilizing veneers or crowns to achieve the desired image.
