Facial feminisation surgery ( FFS ) and techniques allow us to modify the face of a woman in order to exalt her existing beauty, or to make a male face more feminine.
Aesthetic medicine makes this possible, although for certain areas and acts, surgery is the only possible solution, and your doctor will guide you towards surgery.
Treatment consists of hyaluronic acid injections and botulinum toxin ( botox ) ( see the relevant sections ), taking into account the different anthropomorphic structures among men and women.
Forehead for facial feminisation
Characteristics of the male forehead
The male forehead, seen in profile, follows an oblique line from the hairline to the eyebrows with a typical bony projection at the level of the eyebrows.
Characteristics of the female forehead
The female forehead is vertical then convex in profile, without any projection at the level of the eyebrows. The eyebrow sits higher and the distance between the eyebrow and the hairline is about 5 cm.
Chin for facial feminisation
The female chin is more elegant, narrower and less prominent in relation to the male chin.
