Experts in facial feminization surgery

Regardless of gender identity, our goal is for predictable, natural results for your most feminine look–without visible scars. Examples of the feminising FFS procedures offered are upper lip lift, tracheal shave (thyroid cartilage reduction or adam s apple reduction), facial features harmonisation, forehead nose transition and cheek augmentation via facial lipofeminization (FLF or a type of fat grafting). Facial feminization surgery FFS is most frequently sought by TNBI individuals who identify as trans-feminine and wish to undergo a male to female medical transition.

Surgical Procedures Notes: Hairline advancement (aka hairline lowering or scalp advancement for a shorter forehead) is only recommended in very specific cases. Also, we 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. Get to know the basics of what is FFS surgery.
