surgical intervention, known as Facial Feminisation Surgery (FFS). Facial Feminisation surgery (FFS) refers to Plastic Surgery Procedures which are combined to alter the male face to bring the features closer in shape and size to those of an average female face. FFS has become increasingly sought after by transgender women, since FFS is considered just as important or for some, even more important than Gender Reassignment, Sex change Surgery or hormonal therapy because it enables them to integrate socially as women. Some Gender Fluid individuals who are comfortable working in their male gender role will undergo FFS to enable them to integrate and live socially in their desired female role. While most FFS patients are Trans women, some women who are conscious of their faces being too masculine will also undergo FFS.
FFS includes various bony as well as soft tissue procedures of the face and neck (like hair line lowering / forehead lift, brow contouring, rhinoplasty, cheek implants, lip augmentation / lip liftin, chin reshaping / chin implants, Adam’s Apple correction / tracheal shave, hair transplant, laser hair removal etc.)
FFS intends to alter the secondary sexual facial characters from male to female for the below enlisted facial features:

What aftercare will be provided for me?
The care of each patient, before, during and after surgery or treatment at the London Transgender Clinic is second to none. We have on-call nurses available for our patients 24 hours a day and follow up appointments to ensure complete patient satisfaction.
What happens if there is a complication?
All surgical procedures have an inherent risk of complications despite the highest standard of care. The majority of complications, however, are either uncommon ( < 5 % ) or rare ( < 1 % ). It is essential that before you agree to undergo any surgery or treatment that you ask about and fully understand the risks and side-effects of the procedure. Reputable surgeons will always emphasise the risks and side effects and never provide guarantees.
If a complication develops after your surgery,, Mr Inglefield would carry out any further surgery to ameliorate this, at no additional surgical fee to you, the patient. (Hospital and Anaesthetist Fees may apply).
If you are unsatisfied with the results of your surgery after a suitable amount of time has been allowed for healing and maturation of the surgery within the first year, no additional fees will be required.
However, Mr Inglefield is unlikely to waive his fee if any of the following pertain
- The patient ignored the post-operative instructions.
- The patient failed to attend for the agreed postoperative examinations.
- The patient sustained physical injury out of our control.
We support and endorse the Guidelines for the Standards of Care for transgender, trans-individuals set out by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).

I went to the London Transgender Clinic for Hormones and Face Feminisation Surgery.
In both cases they were fantastic! In getting hormone treatment they were both sympathetic and very helpful. I thought that they were both thorough and professional.
The surgery went well and with very little or no pain. I have had no problems during recovery.
I now have a lower hair line, higher eyebrows, a much thinner neck, no bags around my eyes, a new, more feminine, nose and a general face lift.
I look at least ten years younger as well as more female.
This has been a huge boast to my confidence and I would recommend the London Transgender Clinic to anyone.
I plan to go back for more surgery if possible.

While other body parts can be concealed or camouflaged to appear feminine, usually it is difficult to appear truly feminine without
