Facial Feminization Baltimore, Maryland
Facial feminization can encompass a number of different procedures that give the face a softer, more traditionally feminine appearance. FFS is an excellent option for trans and non-transgender women to have the best feminine face possible. These procedures offer a smaller forehead, a nose that fits the new facial contours and fuller lips. Cheeks can also be rounded and the Adam’s apple shape can be changed to fit the new appearance.
FFS has helped many transgender women feel more comfortable and deal with the discomfort associated with gender identity. Not being able to express how one truly feels about their gender has many people struggling to find a voice. FFS helps everyone to match their inner person to the outside, with a sense of validation.
Why FFS is a good choice
Every patient who chose to undergo FFS feels happy to wake up every morning and with self-confidence. Surgery offers everyone a life filled with self-esteem and helps her reach new personal and professional milestones.
What to Expect During a Consultation
During the initial consultation, Dr. Del Corral uses virtual surgical planning to perform an analysis of the horizontal three-thirds of the face. This allows for a more precise evaluation of the soft tissue and bone anatomy of the face and neck. Dr. Del Corral understands the importance and impact facial features can have on a person’s life, that is why he strives for the best surgical precision by using an Ultrasonic bone cutting device to perform the forehead setback/ contouring, mandible sculpting and mentoplasty.

The Surgical Process
Since every patient and their face is different, Dr. Del Corral will do all of the above procedures after devising a unique plan. Most women choose to have surgery in one phase or two. In the first phase, the upper face is taken care of and then followed by the lower face. A complete FF surgery can take up to 12 hours. Swelling and discomfort due to the surgery subsides in a week to ten days. The recovery process can take up to a month.
Facial feminization surgery is a critical element in the male to female transformation. The psychological and bodily changes are tremendously beneficial for the new woman.
