Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) and
Male and Female Faces

There are basic differences between male and female faces, but the degree of masculinity or femininity varies. Females have a more pointed chin and less nasal prominence, for example. The forehead differs in the areas of the brows and the mid forehead, and the skull’s shape affects the drape and contour of the skin. No particular feature makes a face look more male or female. Instead, it is the number of masculine or feminine features that characterizes the face. Below are differences between male and female faces to help guide those exploring facial feminization.
