In many countries of the world, the request for facial feminization surgery has been increasing, perhaps influenced by the search or reaffirmation of the identity of the people. Women who are consider having an unfeminine face come to perform surgical procedures that allowed them to mark their femininity. On the other hand, in Mexico and in particular in Mexico City (capital), the government has facilitated the recognition and registration of gender change in a legal manner. So, many men from different parts of the country go to the capital to perform this process. These people make changes in their body and face for the change of identity. The population in general has shown little by little greater openness and respect for others, so this group of aesthetic procedures has increased. In the development of the topic, we will discuss the facial diagnosis by thirds as well as the neck, highlighting the differences between the female and male face to make the specific changes in each case
