For many trans women, Facial Feminization Surgery, or FFS, is medically required surgery that’s just as important as gender reassignment surgery (GRS) for treating gender dysphoria.
Further, studies have shown that the mental health-related quality of life for trans women who have had FFS is significantly higher than for those who have not.
There are subtle yet important differences between the male and female nose. FFS Rhinoplasty is used to feminize a masculine-looking nose and achieve a female facial profile. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular of the FFS procedures.
Rhinoplasty involves gently raising the tissues of the nose and reshaping them according to more feminine lines. The nose is made to look smaller, with more feminine proportions. The results can make a dramatic difference to a trans woman’s appearance: not only is the nose markedly more feminine in appearance, but FFS Rhinoplasty subtly adds femininity to the face overall, accenting the eyes and cheekbones.
Rhinoplasty is usually done under general anesthesia. Recovery generally takes a few weeks. Results may not final until 6-8 months following surgery.
