Introduction - Face2Face Clinic | Helping trans women transition successfully


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.

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.

Do I need Facial Feminization Surgery?

FFS could potentially offer a solution in the following situations:

  1. For transgender women who struggle to feel comfortable with their reflection.
  2. For transgender women who experience that specific facial features expose them to misgendering, causing distress.
  3. In cases of dissatisfaction with certain facial features that one would prefer to align more with a feminine appearance.

This surgical procedure has the potential to enhance "passing," enabling individuals to live more confidently as the women they are, without concerns about being addressed incorrectly. FFS can assist individuals in expressing their authentic identity in an improved manner, contributing to a more positive self-image. This, in turn, may lead to increased self-confidence and reduced social anxieties and phobias, common challenges faced by the LGBTQI+ community. However, it's crucial to remember that this decision is personal and should be carefully considered with the necessary professional guidance.


These are all the procedures that can be part of FFS:
