What is MTF Facial Feminization?
Though we may not always be able to detect exactly why it is typically easy to discern a woman’s face from a man’s. Facial feminization surgery (FFS) is performed to surgically alter the face's appearance and its features from masculine to feminine as part of the transitioning process. The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, will combine a group of facial plastic surgeries that will make your features smaller, softer, and less angled in order to appear more feminine. We work with our patients to create a procedure plan that best fits their unique goals for optimal results. Contact us in Reston, VA, to learn more about customized facial feminization procedures by scheduling your initial consultation.
How is Facial feminization performed?
At our Reston, VA facility, all cosmetic procedures are custom designed, especially facial feminization. A masculine face differs from a feminine face in many ways, but some masculine faces can have some feminine features that should not be changed – so we look at every face individually. We partner with our patients to help them understand their treatment options and allow them to have the final say in which procedures are performed. Some procedures might also include rejuvenation procedures that can provide a more youthful appearance. A few of the procedures we offer as part of facial feminization surgery include:
- Brow lift with reduction of the bone just above the brow
- Upper and lower eyelid lift with midface lift
- Fat injections for more prominent cheekbones
- Face and/or neck lift
- Adam’s apple reduction (tracheal shave)
- Lip Lift
- Corner mouth lift
- Fat transfer or dermal fillers for fuller lips
What can I expect During/After Surgery?
Facial feminization surgery can be performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the procedures that are included in the patient’s plan. Our plastic surgeon will perform the chosen procedures at a fully accredited surgical facility using minimal incisions in less visible locations to improve the final result. Patients may be able to go home after their surgery, or they may be kept for observation for 1 – 2 nights. Before the patient goes home, our plastic surgeon will schedule a follow-up appointment and go over aftercare and recovery instructions, including when the patient can return to work and exercise.
How much does Facial Feminization cost?
Our Austin-Weston team is pleased to provide a select list of cosmetic procedures for transgender patients. We know your needs and cosmetic goals are unique and would love the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss your concerns. During a consult, we can estimate the cost of your procedure and determine if any insurance coverage is possible. Generally, insurance companies do not cover cosmetic procedures, but we offer a variety of finance options that can help make your treatment affordable.
