Facial feminization surgery is also known as FFS. The term describes a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to modify facial characteristics for a typically feminine result.
Both men and women choose to soften masculinize features with the combination of one or more FFS techniques. The surgery is custom-tailored for each person and can include almost any area of the face and neck. Typical regions to be altered or enhanced with FFS include the jaw, the brow, eye area, nose and cheeks. Neck lift procedures, lip lifts and facial fillers also contribute to overall outcomes.
Choosing your Facial Cosmetic Surgeon will have some baring on your overall costs as geographic location, expertise and demand for your surgeon affect pricing.
Choosing the right expert for you should be based on much more than price. Those who specialize in this area and have in-depth experience will use the most advanced, innovative techniques. They’ll have a collection of excellent before and after results to show. Interviewing past patients and reading reviews is also an excellent way to seek out your expert.
Dr. Phillip Solomon is double board certified and focused on the specialized field of facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He has abundant experience in FFS and excellent examples to show you his work. Patients from across the country travel to Solomon Facial Plastic due to his reputation.
When you visit us for your consultation, Dr. Solomon will meet with you one-on-one. You’ll have a physical assessment and interview to talk about your goals and expectations for the procedure. Dr. Solomon uses computer imaging to help illustrate potential changes and together, you’ll be able to form a plan suited to your needs. Depending on the procedures you choose to combine, your surgical quote for facial feminization will reflect the total cost. We are pleased to work with reputable medical financing companies who help offset the expense of surgery through convenient payment plans.

Whether you’ll be undergoing soft tissue alterations or more significate bone alterations, if you take hormones this will need to be discontinued two weeks before surgery. We typically advise patients to begin again 2 weeks after. All medications or supplements you take will be discussed in detail with your surgeon before the operation, and you’ll be advised about safety or contraindications for these.
You’ll most likely need to take a standard 2 weeks off work. Each individual surgical plan requires personalized instructions, but 2 weeks for the majority of inflammation to heal is typical. During that initial post-op phase, it’s helpful to have extra help on hand for child or pet care and housework.
You should pause a gym membership if you have one, and refrain from strenuous activities or lifting heavy objects for a minimum of 4 weeks. You can take charge of your own, optimal healing once at home by avoiding blood pressure increases or placing any strain on the treatment area.
Incisions will be well-hidden wherever possible and should be closed within a couple of weeks. You’ll return to the clinic once or twice in the early phase to ensure you’re on track and remove sutures. We provide direct contact information for your surgeon post-procedure, and we’re here to guide you any time you need during recovery. By 6 months post op, most people can enjoy their final results with swelling resolved and scars faded. Ongoing sun protection is always advised to keep the skin looking young and healthy while ensuring scars stay faint and discrete.
