Introduction

Facial feminizing surgery, also known as FFS surgery, is a term that encompasses a whole bundle of procedures in which the male face is feminized. Many trans women feel insecure because their appearance does not match who they are on the inside. FFS surgery can help them live as the confident woman they have always been.

According to scientific studies, facial feminizing surgery is very effective in reducing the psychological stress caused by gender dysphoria. It has also been proven that a reduction in misgendering has a positive impact on both personal and professional life.

This is due to some existing anatomical differences between male and female faces and skulls.

Characteristics

What are the differences between a male and female face?

Male characteristics

  • A male face is larger, more square, more angular and has a more pronounced nose.
  • A male skull has a prominent and high chin, firm jaw angles with an almost right angle and a bony bulge above the eye sockets (frontal bossing).
  • A man's eyebrows tend to be heavier, straighter and closer to the eyes.
  • A man's lips are thinner and longer.

Female characteristics 

  • A female face is smaller, more oval, has softer lines, larger eye sockets involving and higher-set eyebrows.
  • A female skull has a convex (bulbous) forehead, a less pronounced chin and rounded jaw corners.
  • A woman's eyebrows are thinner and arch, so they are further away from the eyes.
  • A woman's lips are fuller.
