What does Facial Feminization Surgery Involve?
We Accept All Private Insurances
Facial feminization refers to a group of procedures that are designed to transform the face from male to female. For patients who are transitioning, it’s a critical step in confirming their gender and feeling as though their outer appearance matches their inner identity.
At the core, male and female faces look very different. For example, a woman’s face is generally smaller and more delicate, while a man’s face tends to be larger and feature more pronounced angles. Women have thinner, arched eyebrows, while men possess a heavier, lower brow. The female nose tends to be smaller and slightly upturned, while the male nose is broad and features a wider tip. And finally, the female chin tends to be considerably less prominent.
Facial feminization surgery with Dr. Sajan involves taking all of these nuances into account and altering the face accordingly, creating a brand new appearance that feels more like you.
Facial Feminization Procedures
The most feminine lips are full, pouty, and sensual – and that’s exactly what Dr. Sajan is able to deliver for transgender women with lip feminization. Depending on your needs, this may be accomplished with a fat transfer, dermal fillers or a surgical lip lift.
A universal indicator of masculinity is a strong, angular jaw. As such, it’s one of the first areas transgender women typically want to address. Through a discreet incision inside the mouth, Dr. Sajan can taper the jaw and cut away excess bone, achieving a smaller and more feminine appearance via jaw feminization.
Dr. Sajan has plenty of experience altering the brow to appear more feminine. To begin, he will create an incision discreetly hidden within your hairline. Through that opening, he will remove excess bone so that your forehead appears less prominent and elevate the eyebrows to create feminine angles. This is known as a brow bone reduction.
