Facial Feminization Surgery

Feminizing Facial Surgery

The goal of facial feminization surgery, or feminizing facial surgery, is to transform the masculine features of the face to a more feminine or nonbinary appearance.

What is the cost of facial feminization surgery?

A surgeon's cost for facial feminization surgery may vary based on his or her experience as well as geographic location. Many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans for facial feminization surgery, so be sure to ask.

Facial feminization surgery costs may include:

  • Surgeon's fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Medical tests and x-rays

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for facial feminization surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

Facial feminization surgery can be covered by health insurance in some instances. However, your coverage may only provide a small part of the total fee.
