Excellence in Facial Gender Surgery

After a decade in Facial Feminization Surgery and more than 1300 patients of all gender identities, our multidisciplinary team of facial feminisation experts–FFS surgeons  specialising in facial gender confirmation–offer highly predictable results. Our Facial Gender Harmonization procedures are adapted to be as aggressive or subtle as required, while always staying within realistic and safe parameters.

Our priority is the continued development in the field of facial feminization surgery:

  • Innovating new surgical instruments and technologies for FFS surgery,
  • Collaborating on international scientific research and investigation and
  • Training and Education programs for the next generation in the field.

Regardless of gender identity, our goal is for predictable, naturally feminine results , yet without visible scars.

Facial Feminization Surgery or FFS is most frequently sought by trans-feminine individuals who  wish to undergo a male to female medical transition. Many of these facial feminization patients affirm that FFS Surgery has formed an essential part of their transition, as evidenced by the hundreds of video testimonials by facial feminization surgery patients on our YouTube channel.

The initial objective of face feminization surgery is to minimize the masculinity of certain features, revealing the more feminine version that existed before the hormonal changes of puberty. Facial gender surgery accomplishes this by altering bony and soft tissue.

Examples of the feminising FFS procedures offered are forehead reconstruction, jaw reduction, chinplasty, upper lip lift, tracheal shave (thyroid cartilage reduction or Adam’s apple reduction), facial features harmonisation, forehead-to-nose transition and cheek augmentation via facial lipofeminization (FLF or a type of fat grafting), feminising rhinoplasty and others. The specific surgeries recommended by the facial feminization surgeons will depend on each person’s unique facial harmony and needs. Remember, a face can be read as feminine even while having some typically masculine features. many patients who seek FFS surgery prefer a more conservative approach.

Notes on facial feminization sSurgical pProceduress Notes: Hairline advancement (aka hairline lowering or scalp advancement for a shorter forehead) is only recommended in very specific cases, although feminization of the shape of the hairline can dramatically enhance the results of FFS surgery; this can be done with hair transplants, as in a forehead and orbital reconstruction via coronal approach with simultaneous hair transplants. Also, our FFS surgeonswe do not normally employ chin implants. Soft tissue work, such as a neck lift, may or may not be performed simultaneously with FFS, depending on the surgical plan and the individual.

The facial feminisation process beings long before a patient enters the operating room. Although clinical in nature, it is a journey that begins in the heart and mind when a person first considers face feminization surgery as a way to restore harmony between their outward appearance and their essential self.
