What Are the Benefits of Facial Feminization?
Women like to look their best and highlight their favorite features. A trans woman might desire a smaller nose, fuller lips, and higher-looking cheekbones. FFS can achieve a smoother, softer, and more characteristically feminine appearance.
These procedures can help transitioning women:
- Look in the mirror and relate more naturally to the reflection they see. This can contribute to an indescribable feeling, a coming home, so to speak, for trans women.
- Recreate their external appearance to match the person they truly are.
How Is Your FFS Surgery Performed?
Once you are medically cleared for the surgery, you will undergo preoperative testing to ensure that you are healthy enough for the surgery. If you are a smoker, you will have to be nicotine-free for at least four weeks prior to surgery to avoid serious risks and complications.
FFS is usually performed on an outpatient basis. You must be driven to the surgical center on the day of your surgery, where you will check in, be prepped for surgery, speak with the doctor, and have general anesthesia administered.
After your surgery (which can combine two or more facial surgery techniques), you will wake up in the recovery room and meet with the post-surgical team to receive recovery instructions. Once you are cleared to leave, your driver can pick you up and bring you home. Some patients do require an overnight stay at the hospital, depending on particular circumstances and the procedures performed. You will be informed whether you will be required to stay overnight during your consultation.
What Is Recovery Like After Facial Feminization Surgery?
The FFS recovery period will vary by patient depending on the surgical techniques performed. You will be given the specifics during your consultation.
Regardless, you can usually expect bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which can be lessened with prescribed or OTC pain medication. Often, cold compresses can also be used to reduce swelling and increase comfort.
Be sure to rest and sleep with your head elevated and refrain from strenuous exercise and prolonged sun exposure until cleared by Dr. Hadeed.
