What is facial feminization surgery?
Facial feminization surgery or FFS is an operation involving cosmetic modification of facial features.
The aim is to introduce masculine characteristics more typically into a feminine form. FFS is commonly followed by transgender women or persons assigned to non-dual transsexuals at birth (AMAB). It can also appeal to women.
The FFS is tailored to each person and can cover every aspect of the face and neck. FFS mainly focuses on bone structure and nose. Soft tissue studies such as facelift and neck lift can also be included if necessary.
How is FFS done?
When combined, the malaise and non-softened faces exhibit a series of subtle differences to the face interpreted as a male or female from a scale. Each area of the face is covered in separate procedures:
Forehead procedures shape the forehead by shaving hard angles and reducing the importance of the brow bone. The eyebrow can be easily shaved when the eyebrow protrusion is smaller and the eyebrow bone itself is thick.
Excessive shaving of the eyebrow may cause a hole in the sinus cavity. Therefore, people with larger eyebrows require more processing. In these cases, the anterior portion of the brow bone is completely removed and temporarily exposed to the back of the sinus cavity. The removed bone is then flattened and replaced, so it is flat.
With hairline reduction process will reduce the forehead lenght and make the hairline same as a woman.
The forehead is accessed through an incision in the scalp. The most common approach is to cut along the hairline, which allows the scalp and hairline to physically move forward and reduce the entire hairline. This was the only procedure available for many years. Hairline progression has become the default standard, although sometimes it has a masculine effect.
The simultaneous hair transplantation with a standard hairline progression will cause the transplanted hairs to be rejected by the healing tissue surrounding the incision.
Hair transplantation allows surgeons to target hairline areas that require reinforcement without unnecessarily advancing parts that do not need aesthetics.
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as nose job, also will be needed to maket he face more feminin.
Transsexual rhinoplasty is no different from standard cosmetic rhinoplasty. However, a surgeon experienced with FFS can sometimes provide better results, especially when multiple surgery will be done and change the face at once.
In the case of less extreme changes, rhinoplasty can be performed without an external scalp. The rhinoplasty will be done with close technique and there wont be any visible scar.
Cheek enlargement is a less-used procedure. It is recommended only by some surgeons in some cases.
Cheek enlargement may include cheek implants or fat grafts. For many people, when the synthetic hormones begin to redistribute body fat, the cheeks are sufficiently full on their own. This makes a surgical procedure unnecessary.
Male and softened faces have different proportions of skin on the lips (up to the naval base) and under the lips (up to the chin end).
The unobserved faces tend to have a shorter distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose. The upper lip is usually curled upwards. A male face can be given a lip lift. This shortens the distance on the lip and adjusts the lip direction.
Genioplasty changes the jaw. Surgeons typically approach along the gingiva line along the jaw and chin in the mouth.
Some jawbones require jaw reduction. In this procedure, the bones and protrusions are shaved and smoothed.
At other times, a jaw magnification is recommended. In this case, surgeons select the lower part of the jawbone to a wedge. Then they move away from the jaw and re-insert in the forward position. Alternatively, a jaw implant may be used where appropriate.
