Facial Feminisation Surgery

Facial Feminisation Surgery Glasgow

Facial Feminisation Surgery (FFS) is used to better define and enhance what are known as “secondary sexual facial characteristics”.

The face is recognised as the defining factor when it comes to determining someone’s sex when meeting them for the first time. For many individuals wishing to make the change from male to female, it is easy to alter their body shape with careful choice of clothes and the use of padded garments or non-surgical prosthetics. However, for the face to appear truly feminine it is almost impossible without some level of surgical intervention and this is what we call Facial Feminisation Surgery (FFS).

FFS is not one single procedure, it is a combination of facial procedures which address the key features that require alteration to give a feminine appearance. For transgender women, FFS is increasingly becoming the first procedure to be considered rather than gender reassignment, sex change surgery or hormonal therapy because it enables them to integrate socially as women.

It should also be noted that in the case of some Gender Fluid individuals who based on their social circumstances may to choose to interact on occasion in a male gender role and in other circumstances may wish live socially in a desired female role. For this group, some feel that FFS allows them to integrate better in female social circles after having had FFS.

While many FFS patients are actively wishing to alter their sexuality in some way, some women who are happy being female simply may feel that some of their features are too masculine and would wish to have FFS to address these concerns.

FFS includes all the procedures described in the other sections of our website however there are some other more specialised procedures which are commonly used within FFS.

  • Hair line Adjustment / Hair Transplanting
  • Brow Position / Shape Adjustment
  • Forehead Contouring
  • Cheek implants / Augmentation / Lifts
  • Lip Augmentation / Lip Lifting

  • Adam’s Apple Correction / Tracheal Shave
  • Recontouring of Jaw and Check Bones (Removing square jaw angles)
  • Rhinoplasty (Aimed at achieving feminine nasal features)
  • Ear Reshaping

As mentioned above this is a complex area of surgery from both a physical and emotional perspective and these considerations will be taken into account by the surgeon at the initial consultation. The surgeon will advise what procedures may be required and what can realistically be achieved in the correction these facial concerns.
