Dr. Eric Bensimon

One of the Most Experienced FFS Surgeons in the World

Facial Feminization Surgery is a highly complex group of procedures and so it is not surprising that there are few surgeons around the world who specialize in FFS. This complexity further highlights the need to entrust a very experienced surgeon for FFS. Dr. Eric Bensimon, based in Montreal, Canada, has been perfecting his Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) techniques for over 15 years.

Dr. Bensimon's years of working as a trauma surgeon focused on craniofacial reconstruction helped him develop a deep understanding of the human skull and sparked the beginning of his passion for Facial Feminization Surgery. Following completion of a craniomaxilofacial surgery fellowship, he opened his private practice in Montreal, specializing in FFS. In the years since, Dr. Bensimon has helped thousands of patients achieve their individual feminization goals.

The most common FFS procedures are Frontal Bossing (Forehead Recontouring), Tracheal Shave (Adam's Apple removal) and Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping). Depending on your goals, Dr. Bensimon may also suggest injectables to enhance the lips, lift the cheeks or soften the eyes.
Dr. Bensimon also offers MTF Breast Augmentation and can perform this at the same time as FFS procedures.

Dr. Bensimon offers the following FFS procedures to transform masculine-looking facial features into a natural, feminine appearance.

Forehead Reduction (Frontal Bossing Plasty) $9000-$11,000
Rhinoplasty $7000
Cheek Implants $7000

At least 18 years of age.
