Who is FFS for?


FFS is for anyone who wishes to soften or harmonize the underlying structure which gives shape to their face.
People of all genders seek facial feminization to improve certain features which they are uncomfortable with or feel are out of balance with the rest of their face. Although a great majority of patients are trans women, bone sculpture is also in high demand by cisgender men and women for the treatment of overly masculine facial traits. Common procedures include, among others: Mandibular reduction, jaw reshaping, chin surgery, liplift/lip surgery, rhinoplasty (nose feminization), and hairline feminization which may or may not be combined with soft tissue treatment such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or neck liposuction, etc. Ultimately, the goal is to reduce certain exaggerated features for an overall more balanced, feminine look.

What does FFS entail?


First, since each case is completely different, a personalized evaluation is always required initially, which should mark the beginning of in-depth conversations about what your ideals are and adjusting these to realistic expectations given your “base” features and the anatomical limits placed for safety.

Every face is unique and each ffs surgeon has a different approach and philosophy so it is best to do plenty of research. It is also important to understand that there are variations in methods for each facial feature, which are adapted especially according to the individual patient needs. For this reason, FACIALTEAM does not have a standard price list since each patient´s treatment is so distinct. For example, a forehead feminization takes many factors into account: type and location of incision, immediate or delayed hair transplants, the volume of the entire forehead, the height of the eyebrows, the format and height of hairline, the distance of the brow ridge (bossing) prominence, the quality of the soft tissue in the area, the transition between the nose and the bossing, the projection of the orbits, and more. This example shows how precise facial feminization can be, with a high grade of predictability, but that it is not a “cookie-cutter” treatment which is the same for everyone. Finally, this type of craniofacial surgery can be as aggressive or subtle as possible: the real point is providing exactly the optimal type of approach indicated for you. More procedures does not equal more feminizing just as removing more volume will not ensure a well-balanced and feminine face.
