What is Facial Feminization?
Facial Feminization is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves altering the features of a person’s face to make them appear more feminine. It is a specialized procedure that is typically performed on transgender women or individuals who identify as non-binary, but it can also be performed for aesthetic purposes.
Facial Feminization surgery may include various procedures, such as brow lift, rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation, jaw contouring, and lip augmentation. These procedures are designed to soften masculine features and create a more feminine facial appearance.
The duration of a Facial Feminization surgery can vary depending on the specific procedures being performed, the extent of the surgery, and the surgeon's technique. Typically, the procedure can take several hours to complete.
Patients may need to stay in the hospital for one or more nights after the surgery to monitor their recovery and manage any discomfort or pain. Most patients can expect to see significant improvement in their facial appearance within several weeks to several months after the surgery.
Facial Feminization surgery is a major surgical procedure, and as such, it is typically performed under general anesthesia. General anesthesia is a type of anesthesia that induces a state of unconsciousness, allowing the patient to remain completely still and free from pain during the procedure.
