There are certain characteristics of a face that are identified as feminine. Facial feminization surgery (FFS) encompasses the spectrum of facial plastic surgery procedures that can provide assistance to patients to affirm their feminine identity. There are also non-surgical treatments that can help a patient look more feminine for those that do not want to pursue surgical solutions. You may benefit from a combination of both surgical and nonsurgical facial feminization procedures.

BODY PROCEDURES

The is a lot of overlap between cosmetic plastic surgery and male to female (MTF) and female to male (FTM) body contouring and gender reassignment surgery. However, it’s in the fine detail of these procedures that you see the differences and having a plastic surgeon who pays attention to these details can make all the difference. While there are certain body contours that are considered traditionally female or male, each individual’s desires are taken into consideration so that the surgeon and the patient come up with a plan together during the transitioning journey.
