What are the Before and After Components of Facial Feminization Surgery?

Facial Feminization Surgery Before And After

Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is an exciting next step for transgender or non-binary individuals to create a more feminine appearance, empowering you to feel your very best. At ART Surgical, we understand that any FFS can profoundly impact your life, and we are grateful to be on this journey with you of becoming your most authentic self. Based on your priorities or stage of gender affirmation, a personalized plan of before and after will be created by you and Dr. Rodriguez.

Over 19 Years of Facial Surgeries and Craniofacial Procedures

Dr. Rodriguez has specialized in facial surgery and craniofacial procedures for over 19 years. Having conducted over 3,000 procedures, her experience lays the foundation of her care and personalization of treatments for each client. While at Stanford University for her fellowship, she was able to hone her skills. She is one of the few gender surgeons in the Bay Area doing closed rhinoplasty, which causes less swelling and scarring than a traditional rhinoplasty. In addition, she has trained with pioneers in this field who have experience in promoting gender affirmation and a dialogue of acceptance all over the world.

What to expect from facial feminization surgery

Facial Feminization Surgeries, also known as FFS, are a series of procedures to promote a feminine appearance beyond hormone therapy.

Some of the most popular surgeries for FFS include:

  • Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) to reshape the nose to a more feminine appearance.
  • Brow lift to raise and contour the eyebrows to a more feminine shape.
  • Forehead contouring to reduce the size of the forehead and to make it more rounded and feminine.
  • Chin and jaw contouring to soften the jawline and create a more oval-shaped face.
  • Lip lift or augmentation to create fuller, more feminine lips.
  • Tracheal shave to reduce the size of Adam’s apple.
  • Cheek augmentation to create fuller, more feminine cheeks.

The variety of results showcases people of different ages, ethnicities, and nationalities ranging from subtle results to dramatic. With a high level of detailed care, Dr. Rodriguez takes into account a flawless cycle of treatment for you to improve your quality of life. Having access to the most up-to-date data in scientific research, ART Surgical brings the latest in technology, medical practices, and techniques to the field of facial feminization in California.

What does FFS recovery look like?

While there is a recovery period for each Facial Feminization Surgery, we provide a specific attentive care plan to guide you. Recovery includes:

  • Minimal sun exposure for approximately nine months.
  • Medication for five to seven days to minimize pain.
  • Regular checkups to assess healing with Dr. Rodriguez.

We realize this is an investment in your future. We’re also seeing the trend that more employers are covering transgender health care in insurance plans. Combining that with advancing medical care makes surgical techniques safer, resulting in better cosmetic outcomes.
