What is facial feminization surgery for patients in the United States?
FFS surgery is a personalized set of surgical procedures through which we modify and sculpt the facial skeleton.
It’s about altering features that people generally associate with the masculine gender by softening their shape and modifying them to more “feminine” parameters. It’s essentially about reversing the effects of puberty on the skull.
The surgery is appropriate for anyone who wants to alter what they consider to be “masculine features”. Cisgender men and women may be candidates for FFS Surgery. However, the majority of patients are women assigned-male-at-birth who identify as binary and therefore opt for a medical male-to-female gender transition.
We achieve the natural FFS results that our patients want from their face feminization surgery by basing our work on the following pillars:
- A philosophy centred around the preservation of family or ethnic traits, that adapts to personal or cultural preferences yet also allows for changes for aesthetic reasons.
- High-tech planning with 3D diagnostics to decide which are the essential and optional procedures, depending on the patient’s main goals. More efficient techniques, such as the hidden crown approach to forehead reduction, that has the added advantage of producing grafts for simultaneous hair transplants.
- Hidden incisions for all procedures, especially the adam’s apple reduction. An intraoral approach with ultrasonic instruments and osteotomy guides to reshape the jaw also is free of visible scars. These progressive methods permit more predictable results, reduce trauma to surrounding tissue, thus making recovery easier.
- An aftercare program that provides the perfect healing conditions which helps avoid complications.

FFS results in the United States
It’s natural for patients to be concerned about how their needs will be met once they leave Marbella and return to the United States.
Rest assured that for at least a year after surgery our Postoperative Care Specialists will continue to follow up with you, no matter where you’re based.
Our patients are encouraged to complete our FFS surgery before and after satisfaction questionnaires, about both the process and the results. Over the years, feedback from these surveys has shown that patients are generally very satisfied.
