Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)
Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is a term used to describe a number of facial surgery procedures designed to transform the features of the face from masculine to feminine.
Women’s faces are typically more oval-shaped than men’s, which are usually more square-shaped. The facial features of a woman’s face are usually softer, smaller rounder and more delicate than a man’s. Their eyebrows often rest higher and are more arched. They have generally shorter, flatter foreheads with rounded hairlines. A feminine nose is usually straighter and its tip is often smaller and slightly upturned.
Facial feminization surgery involves the surgical manipulation of the chin, neck, jaw, nose and brow through procedures such as:
- Eyelid Lift
- Brow Lift
- Neck Lift
- Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
- Chin Surgery
- Ear Surgery
- Facial Liposuction
- Facial Fat Grafting
While there are general characteristics that comprise a gender’s overall aesthetic, every patient is unique. At Zinsser Plastic Surgery, we don’t just recognize your individuality, we celebrate it. The design of your facial feminization surgery will be tailored to your specific needs and anatomical structure.
MTF Transfeminine Top Surgery
The ultimate goal of transfeminine chest contouring is to help you feel more comfortable and confident in your own body. By aligning your internal sense of self with your external physical characteristics, breast augmentation surgery can provide you with an elegant, natural-looking figure and an improved level of self-esteem.
In the procedure, Dr. Zinsser will create a beautiful, feminine chest contour with the placement of saline or silicone implants. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zinsser will work closely with you to understand your unique goals. He will answer your questions, address your concerns and customize a treatment plan tailored specifically for you.
FTM Transmasculine Top Surgery
If you are a transgender man or non-binary individual who wants to attain a more masculine or less feminine look by reducing the size of your breasts, transmasculine top surgery may be your ideal solution. In addition to removing breast tissue and excess skin, the procedure also often involves the repositioning and resizing of the nipples.
For so many of our patients, masculization surgery achieves more than just a flatter chest and a more masculine appearance; it allows them to live more authentically, with improved self-esteem and a body image that is more aligned with their inner selves. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zinsser will discuss all of your options and explain what you can realistically expect from your top surgery results.
