The study also found that on a 100-point facial feminization score (with 100 denoting complete satisfaction), the average score for patients before FFS was 47. 2, which then increased to an 80. 6 satisfaction score at six months after surgery—meaning patients reported a rather significant improvement in satisfaction with their facial features post-procedures.
As with any procedure, when seeking a facial feminization surgery specialist, look for a board-certified doctor who has experience treating patients with these specific procedures.
Facial feminization surgery, also referred to as FFS, is an increasingly popular combination of procedures that involve softening masculinized facial features into a shape more typically recognized as feminine.
Some common facial feminization procedures include surgeries like brow and orbital reduction surgery, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, jaw reduction, lip lifts and neck liposuction.
A study in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), states that a typical FFS patient will undergo an average of 4. 2 procedures per patient.
Nonsurgical procedures will, however, allow the patient to try out facial feminization treatments and tweak the results as they go.
The key to optimal facial feminine surgery results is balance and harmony, so be sure that your chosen doctor’s aesthetic matches your personal goals and wishes.
Some doctors prefer that their patients start the transformation process slowly and build up to more invasive procedures so they may live with their results for some time before committing to a more permanent change.
FFS is sought after by patients of any and all genders. These treatments go beyond the traditional binary roles of “male or female,” and include trans-feminine, gender-queer, gender fluid, two-spirit and more.
