  Facial Feminization Surgery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) refers to elective surgical procedures to alter a 'masculine' face to become a 'feminine' face.
FFS comprises bony and soft tissue surgery of the face and trachea but is generally not regarded to include facial hair removal and hair transplants, though a case could be made for their inclusion as well.
Apart from these practitioners who perform surgery nearly exclusively upon transsexual and transgender women, it has also been taken upon by other maxillofacial and plastic surgeons as part of their practice, notably by Frans Noorman van der Dussen in Antwerp, Belgium.

 Transsexual Surgery: Its Pros and Cons
Transsexual surgery is often thought of as synonymous with genital surgery, which is usually called sex reassignment surgery (SRS), i.e., vaginoplasty for MFs or phalloplasty for FMs.
Specific complications of MF surgery found by Pfafflin and Junge included complete or partial necrosis of the vagina and labia, fistulas from the bladder or bowel into the vagina, stenosis of the urethra, and vaginas that were too short or too small for coitus.
The latter include nerve injuries and bone infections (osteomyelitis) in the case of facial surgery, and injury to the vocal cords in the case of laryngeal surgery.

 Lynn's Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS)
The aim of FFS surgery is to eliminate or reduce many of the cross-gender-related deformities of the facial bones caused by late-pubertal testosterone masculinization in MtF transsexuals.
The rapid masculinization of boys' facial features begins during puberty and continues on into their twenties under the influence of the male hormone testosterone, which also causes the development of facial hair and the deepening of the voice.
Surgical feminization of masculinized faces can be done by recontouring the forehead, reducing or eliminating the browridge, smoothly re-contouring the nose-ridge down from the forehead, narrowing and reducing in size the jawbone and chin (with the chin repositioned at a new angle) and reshaping the trachea to eliminate the "Adam's apple".
