Facial feminisation surgery (FFS) is a collective term for a number of facial procedures providing a more feminine appearance. For many trans women in particular, it is a crucial and increasingly popular step in their transition process.
A face is as unique as the personality behind it. An individualised approach and the selection of the right surgical techniques are fundamental to a successful outcome. Any FFS should also consider aspects beyond standard feminisation concepts. An FFS must address the harmony and global feminine perception of your face, as well as the synchrony of all your facial features and the rest of your body. Our face is the first contact we offer the world around us and it should be non-verbal expression of who we are and how we feel about ourselves.
My transition has given me self-confidence, not only because my body is finally aligned with my intimate feelings, but also because I feel myself credible in my gender expression.
