What is the cost of Facial Feminization Surgery?
There are many factors that influence the average price for FFS surgery. Very roughly speaking, you can find Facial Feminization Surgery costs ranging from 5,000 to 60,000 euros. That’s a huge difference, so let’s break it down and compare the prices within Europe, and then take a look at the prices in the United States based on the quotes from our patient Jessica.
Caution: A higher cost does not equal better care or a better quality treatment. In the end, one has to make a decision based on which FFS surgeon can most likely give them the preferred outcome.
This comparative study is based on the price for Jessica’s round of full Facial Feminization Surgery* (see video above). She had the following procedures done:
- Hairline reduction
- Type 3 forehead recontouring
- Jaw and chin recontouring
- Tracheal shave
- Lipofilling cheeks
- Lipofilling lips
*What we call a ‘full FFS’ generally consists of about 4 to 5 major procedures, and one or two minor ones.
The Facial Feminization Surgery cost in Europe
Even within Europe you can find many differences between prices for a full Facial Feminization Surgery. Let’s compare the price of the full FFS for Jessica in Belgium versus Spain, the two main FFS hubs.
-Prices in Belgium
The cost for the full FFS in Jessica’s example above was 23,500 euros. This included a one week stay in the guesthouse and all hospital and surgery fees.
-Prices in Spain
A full FFS containing all of the procedures we listed above, would come in at around 48,000 euros. This would include an 11-day stay after the surgery, as well as all other hospital and surgery fees.
The Facial Feminization Surgery cost in the United States
The price of a full FFS for Jessica in the US would come in at between 50,000-60,000 dollars (43,000-53,000 euros) including all hospital and surgery fees.
A recent FFS price comparison based on quotes from another patient confirmed that 2pass Clinic is one of the most affordable options for Facial Feminization Surgery worldwide.
