The characteristics of a person’s face are often the first thing we notice when meeting someone. Male and female faces have distinguishing characteristics. Generally, a woman’s face is more oval-shaped than a man’s, which is typically more square-shaped. A woman’s facial features are usually rounder, smaller, softer and more delicate than a man’s.
Women have a rounded hairline with flatter, shorter foreheads. The eyebrows are usually higher and more arched. A feminine nose is straight to mildly concave, with a smaller and slightly upturned tip.
Facial feminization surgery (FFS) refers to a group of surgical procedures designed to transform the features of the face from male to female. FFS involves the surgical manipulation of the brow, nose, jaw, chin and neck through facial plastic surgery procedures such as:
- Brow lift
- Temporal lift
- Frontal bossing reduction osteotomy
- Reduction osteotomy of the supra-orbital rims
- Nasal tip refinement
- Zygoma augmentation
- Submalar augmentation
- Submandibular liposuction
- Neck lift
- Face lift (often SMAS)
- Platysma banding elimination
- Lip lift
- Chin recontouring
- Jaw recontouring
Although each gender comprises general aesthetic features, every patient is different. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to FFS or any other plastic surgery procedure. The design of your facial feminization surgery will be customized to your unique anatomical structure and specific needs.
How Much Does Facial Feminization Surgery Cost?
The cost of facial feminization surgery varies tremendously because the necessary procedures are individually tailored to each patient’s needs. Depending on their unique facial structure, not every patient will require a full FFS transformation.
The best way to determine the cost of your feminization surgery is through a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Feins. During this informative and confidential visit, Dr. Feins will assess your needs, offer recommendations and options and answer all of your questions, including potential costs.
Male-to-Female Chest Contouring
Male-to female (MTF) breast augmentation helps transwomen or non-binary transgender people achieve the feminine chest shape they desire. In the procedure, saline or silicone breast implants are placed to enhance the size and shape of the chest.
The ultimate goal of MTF chest contouring is to help you feel more comfortable in your own body. By aligning your physical characteristics with your internal sense of self, this procedure can provide you with a beautiful, natural-looking body contour and an improved level of self-esteem.
Female-to-Male Chest Contouring
Also known as top surgery, female-to-male (FTM) chest contouring surgery is designed to help transgender men on non-binary transgender people who want to attain a more masculine appearance by reducing the size of their breasts. The process often involves the removal of breast tissue and excess skin as well as resizing and repositioning the nipples. Our goal is for you to be “Beach Ready”.
For many FTM patients, masculinization surgery leads to improved self-confidence and body-image. During your initial consultation with Dr. Feins, he will discuss your options and set realistic expectations for your results.
Our Commitment to You
At the Office of Robert S. Feins, M.D., F.A.C.S., we firmly believe that transitioning men and women deserve the most compassionate and highly-personalized care available. Your safety and satisfaction are paramount.
When your gender is aligned with your body, you may have a greater sense of well-being and confidence moving forward in life. We feel honored to give the external shape to your internal form. We are committed to producing an outward reflection of your inner beauty with dignity, respect, safety and comfort.
