Facial feminization surgery, or FFS for short, is a collection of cosmetic procedures that can alter male facial features to appear more feminine. It can consist of rhinoplasty (nose job), brow lift, jaw reduction, facelift, cheek augmentation, lip augmentation, as well as blepharoplasty. Although it is the most effective way to change a face with “manly” features to become feminine, some people may not want to undergo the whole procedure since it can take a long time, and possibly a lot of money. If you do not want to undergo facial feminization surgery in Thailand or Turkey and you want to get similar results, you can opt for non-invasive and non-surgical facial treatments. The following are some alternatives you may want to consider.
Small amounts of dermal fillers can alter your appearance. Dermal fillers such as Restylane can add more volume to your facial features, such as the cheeks, chin contours, forehead, and nose. It can also fill sunken areas under your eye or around the mouth. With dermal fillers, you can lighten crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles as well. In addition, dermal filler can also help feminize the nose. Although it does not reconstruct the nose like a rhinoplasty, it can help feminize your face by lifting the tip of your nose and reduce the appearance of dorsal humps. To plump your lips, you can use lip fillers, such as Juvederm Volbella or Restylane Silk, which will only take between 15 and 20 minutes to perform and last around four to six months.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport injections can make a lot of changes to your face, including:
- Jaw muscle reduction. Jaw contouring or reshaping is one of the most requested facial feminization procedures. Injections of Botox or Dysport can relax the jaw muscle and reduce its size, which will reduce the appearance of an overly-square and masculine jawline.
- Smooth frown lines and wrinkles. Signs of aging can make you look more masculine. With Botox and Dysport, crow’s feet and frown lines can be smoothed.
- Reshape the brows. The eyebrow shape of the male and female is different. Botox injections can give you a more feminine arch mimicking women’s higher set of brows.
- Chin Augmentation. The female face has a more pointed chin. To give you a similar appearance of a pointed chin, Botox works by turning the chin down. After that, you need to have a dermal filler to add fullness to your chin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Also known as the “Vampire Facelift,” PRP uses injections of a concentration of your own platelets to rejuvenate your skin. It can harness your own nutrient-rich cells to stimulate the regeneration of your skin. With PRP, your skin is stimulated to create new blood vessels, new skin cells, and new collagen. It can treat acne scarring, sun-damaged skin, sagging skin, dark circles under your eyes, rough skin texture, and wrinkles or fine lines. Platelet-rich plasma gives you similar results to a Facelift.
