Facial Feminization Surgery – Male to Female

transgender transition

Facial feminization surgery, sometimes referred to as simply FFS, is one of the most coveted surgeries among transgender individuals seeking to transition. This surgery is designed to soften the more masculine facial features and deliver a more feminine, rounded, contoured face.

What’s Involved in Facial Feminization?

While this is the number one most common questions asked by those interested in facial feminization surgery, it’s also one of the most difficult to answer. Every single surgery is custom-tailored to the patient’s individual needs. First, the surgeon discusses the patient’s vision for her face. Then, the surgeon will recommend a list of procedures designed to help the patient achieve those results.

What It’s Like to Make the Transition

ffs transition

The word “transition” means different things to different people. Sometimes, a transition is mostly a social event, and in other cases, it requires a great deal of surgery. If you’ve been considering transitioning, you’re probably curious to learn how other people felt throughout the process. Here, you can learn about three transgender women’s journeys.

Making the Decision

Some women claim that they went most of their adult lives without ever realizing their issues with their genders. For example, in some cases, women don’t make the transition until their 40s – when their kids have all but grown and gone on to college. It’s important to note that all three women say transitioning wasn’t a choice or something they weighed intellectually – it reflected who they were, and something they felt they must do to truly be themselves.

FFS Transgender

One Amazing Transgender Transition Discusses her Transformation

FFS Transgender

Transgender Stef Sanjati, age 20, has always struggled to look at herself in the mirror – even to the point where she would spend 5 hours a day applying makeup in an effort to appear more feminine. However, she was recently able to have Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) performed and is planning to undergo Sexual Realignment Surgery (SRS) at some point as well.

Costly but Well Worthwhile

Before having the $45,000 FFS surgery, Ms. Sanjati said that it wasn’t a matter of her disliking herself; she felt that the person staring back at her from the mirror simply didn’t reflect who she truly was. “For myself, waking up and looking in the mirror is like pressing reset on your favorite gam every day. Losing all progress, going backwards, never reaching your potential. It’s incredibly frustrating, not seeing what you see in your head in the mirror. I don’t think I have uploaded an untouched photograph since before I started my transition – I nip and tuck at my face, reducing my jaw here, enlarging my cheek there… all with the goal of looking more like what we perceive as feminine,” she said.
