What is Facial Feminization Surgery?

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is a highly specialized plastic surgery. The plastic surgeon uses  World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) provisions to transform masculine features into a soft and feminine look. The surgery procedures are not the same for everyone.

That’s why if you want to achieve a truly natural feminine look, you must be comfortable with the meticulous care provided to you through leading-edge surgical and medical procedures. The various FFS surgical procedures Dr. Carson provides his patients include but isn’t limited to:

  • Forehead Contouring
  • Hairline Lowering/Forehead Reduction
  • Brow & Frontal Bone Reduction
  • Brow Lift
  • Temple Augmentation
  • Cheek Augmentation or Reduction
  • Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
  • Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift) 
  • Face Lift
  • Neck Lift
  • Lip Augmentation / Lip Lifts
  • Mandibleplasty/Jaw Reduction
  • Genioplasty / Chin Contouring
  • Neck/Submental Liposuction
  • Tracheal Shave
  • Earlobe Reduction

High-quality patient experience is critical during transgender procedures because you are now aligning your true gender identity with your physical being.

Questions and Answers About Transgender Surgery

There is no one feminine or masculine face that defines transgender surgery. But there is a feminine face that defines whom you represent and want to look like. Dr. C. Carson Huynh has performed thousands of procedures himself.

Dr. Carson has also consulted and worked with other plastic surgeons in performing many more facelifts and transgender surgical procedures. Few plastic surgeons have his experience and knowledge to help achieve gentle, precise, and effective plastic surgery results. 

You can choose from feminizing procedures, so please don’t think you have to choose a preordained look or timed process. In addition, you will have transgender hormone replacement before and after your surgery. 

Sometimes the feminizing effects of estrogen may appear after just a few doses. Other times it can take a longer amount of time. But regardless, those who are achieving the look and sense of being they’ve searched a lifetime to find are usually prepared to wait for the results as they develop.
