A human face differs by gender. This difference is caused by hormones exposure during the different stages of development. Despite the fact that a woman and man differ physically, some patients want to look feminine – especially transgender individuals. Is this even possible? It is with the help of facial feminization surgery or known as FFS. This is a type of surgery that involves a series of surgical interventions to make a face appear more feminine. 

What is Facial Feminization

Facial feminization is a procedure done to alter typically male facial features and make them look more female. This surgical procedure may include brow lift, rhinoplasty, and cheek implantation to name a few. The need to do facial feminization is important especially for those transgender patients who are not comfortable with the structure of their faces. Wouldn’t it be ideal for a transgender woman not just to feel like a  woman but also to look like one? 

A person’s face is not necessarily to be considered as the basis of your gender. However, it may have a big impact on a person’s ability to socialize around and be comfortable with their identity. Whether we like it or not, it is a person’s face that we often notice, if not the only part of a human body that most people will notice. So, for those people who feel the need to make their face look more feminine, facial feminization is perfect for them.

Reasons To Get Facial Feminization

Today when the world pays more attention to the physical look of a person more than his or her character, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more and more people planning to get facial feminization. 

Facial feminization also proves to help minimize the negative effects of gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is the condition wherein a person is struggling with the gender assigned to him or her and to the gender which the society identifies him/her with. Gender dysphoria can be a serious problem as is lowers the self-esteem of the person. With this, individuals with gender dysphoria may have a hard time expressing their selves through the way they act and the way they dress. 

Through facial feminization, individuals will be able to look and act the way they wish to. Rest assured that with facial feminization, you are enhancing how you look to appear more feminine but still remaining your true self. There are different procedures that you can choose from with facial feminization depending on the facial parts that you want to enhance.
