The goal is to soften masculinized features into a shape that is more commonly associated with women. FFS is commonly pursued by transgender women or non-binary trans people who were assigned male at birth (AMAB). It can also appeal to cisgender women.
FFS is unique to each individual and can cover all aspects of the face and neck. FFS is primarily concerned with bone structure and nose shape. When necessary, soft tissue work such as facelifts and neck lifts can be incorporated.

The experience of the performing surgeon also plays an important factor while considering the cost.

How to choose a doctor

How is FFS performed?
There are a number of subtle differences between masculinized and non-masculinized faces that, when combined, tip the scales toward a face being interpreted as male or female. Each area of the face is treated separately in the following procedures:
- Forehead procedures
- Hairline alterations
- Nose procedures
- Cheek augmentation
- Lip lift
- Jaw surgery
- Tracheal shave
- Soft tissue procedures
Soft tissue procedures can be combined with the above-mentioned core FFS procedures. This could include the following:
- lip injections
- eyebrow lifts
