FFS is medically necessary to treat gender dysphoria in many transgender women. For some it can even be more important than Sexual Reassignment Surgery (SRS) to allow for societal integration. Mental health quality of life for transgender women who have had FFS is significantly higher than for transgender women who have not had FFS. As a result of social changes in the current environment, many women who are married with children and/or established in their careers are now feeling it possible to move forward with FFS and enjoy life as the women they always knew they were. And younger women are now moving forward with FFS to also portray their true identity. In the past many had turned to hormone therapy which provided some softening of facial features but that only went so far. Today, many are not only doing hormone therapy but undergoing surgical intervention in the form of FFS to portray the facial image they have seen in themselves for so many years. FFS has been evolving and continues to evolve in the type of procedures and the way they are performed to change male dominant facial characteristics to a more feminine facial structure.
