Your Facial Feminization Surgery in Buenos Aires, Argentina

The gender of a person can be perceived just by glancing at his or her facial features. FFS surgery will make others see at first sight what your right gender is.

Your bones are the key

Any person can tell whether a face is masculine or feminine just by looking at the facial features. This ability starts during the earliest childhood, even before learning which the genital differences are. However, most people wouldn't be able to put into words what exactly makes a face look female or male, nor have they even thought about this. The shapes and profile that we see are determined by factors hidden within: the bones constituting the forehead, nose, jaw and chin.

Although many masculine-faced women can get a satisfactory feminization through relatively conventional facial surgery, many others need to seek a change in the deepest layers of the face, altering the proportions of the facial skeleton. In the early eighties, Dr. Douglas Ousterhout introduced the concept that it was possible to achieve the feminization of a male face by using cranio-facial surgery techniques that were so far just intended to fix cranial malformations or injuries from accidents. Since then, the set of surgical procedures performed to reshape the facial bones and give them feminine proportions is called FFS (Facial Feminization Surgery). In this section, we explain step by step what these surgeries consist of.

Can Facial Feminization Surgery be combined with a face lift?

Although some FFS specialists prefer to perform face and neck lifts in another surgery some months later than the bony Facial Feminization, both kinds of procedures can be combined in just one surgical act with very good and especially natural results. When the face lift is performed in one surgery with the feminization of the facial skeleton, it must be understood as a complementary procedure that repositions the soft tissues in a way that brings out the feminization acquired on the facial bones (that would otherwise get concealed, not fully appreciable) and as a factor that sums up into the whole facial transformation rather than as a facelift per se, usually intended for just rejuvenation. In terms of rejuvenation it might result less perfect than when performed alone but, but the combination has a great benefit for the mature patients: it produces an immediate younger appearance that allows them to recover and enjoy in the right gender many years they spent living in the other one.

Something else to consider is that doing Facelift and Facial Feminization Surgery all together means an important saving in money, flights, time off and healing time, and the relieve of having to pass through the pain and inconveniences of the recovery just one time.

Partial facial feminization surgery

Some patients don’t need to undergo a full facial feminization surgery to obtain a satisfactory degree of feminization. In some cases, a surgery of just forehead and nose can be enough for them. This is because the relative importance of the forehead in the perception of the facial gender is much higher than the relative importance of the lower face, as the forehead affects something crucial: it affects the way the eyes look. It is amazing how something as abstract as the look of the eyes can be changed by reshaping hard bone. A male bone frame around the eyes gives the look the fierce, severe or even grim character of the predators, probably an heritage from the age when male were hunters and fighters and women stayed at home caring after the children. Feminization surgery of the forehead and nose gives the patient’s eyes the look of the female eyes. This look, so appreciated by romantic poets, is not female because of anything in the eyes themselves (which are the same flesh balls in both males and females), but because of the shape, thickness and especially the projection of the bones that surround them.

READ ABOUT EACH PROCEDURE OF FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY

Forehead Feminization Surgery

When brow bossing protrudes it results the most telltale of male facial areas. Most of times it must be set back through a surgery called forehead reconstruction to feminize it properly. Thick orbital rims give the eyes a male look. Their feminization is achieved through grinding/burring them down (shaving).

+ info
Nose Feminization Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Female noses that are considered pretty are usually smaller overall. Their bridges are usually shorter, thinner and straighter, and the tips are well defined… Nose feminization surgery or Feminizing rhinoplasty gives a male nose these attributes which are crucial for facial harmony.

+ info
Chin Feminization Surgery

Vertical and/or horizontal reduction of the chin is usually done together with the jaw tapering surgery. A smaller, pointier chin is clearly perceived as a feminization of the facial outline.

+ info
Jaw Feminization Surgery (reduction)

Female facial frames are narrower than male ones. The best way to narrow a male face (and a get a consequent feminization of the whole facial outline) is reducing the jaw width, whether by removing the rear angles and/or by tapering the sides.

+ info
Cheek Feminization surgery (augmentation)

Full, high placed, well defined cheekbones are expected in female faces. If yours don’t match these characteristics, then your Facial Feminization Surgery might include cheek implants.

+ info
Upper Lip Feminization Surgery

The average distance between nose and mouth is shorter in females. This facial characteristic allows more teeth exposure and indicates youth too. The procedure that reduces the tallness of male upper lips and rolls the vermillion border out is known as upper lip lift (or lip shortening).

+ info
Brow Lift

Eyebrows contribute to make the eyes look female or male: they are more than facial indicators of moods and emotions. Their placement, shape and arch can get a permanent feminization through surgery.
