Transexual Facial and Cosmetic Surgery

Facial feminization surgery for MtF patients attempts to shift the male facial patterns to more feminine patterns. The surgery involves many kinds of procedures, which will vary with each individual.

The differences between male and female facial features vary with age, nationality and how early hormonal therapy begins. The pure female or pure male face is a matter of ideal, and most individuals will have a mixture to varying degree of each type. If you desire a more feminine face, you should consider your own wishes, as well as the viewpoints of others who know your facial features and expressions well enough to give honest critique. It is essential; moreover, that you have realistic expectations and realize that results may vary amongst individuals who may have similar procedures.
