What is facial feminization?

Facial Feminization surgery consists of reshaping the different areas of the face to give a more feminine perception.

Facial Feminization surgery encompasses a series of surgical procedures that allow us to modify and sculpt the soft tissues and the facial skeleton to transform the characteristics of a masculine face into those of a female face.

The goal is to end up with more feminine facial features by reconstructing the most important parts of the face that define the gender of the person.

How does facial feminization work?

After a first recognition visit, we carry out a facial study and reach a consensus with the patient so we can design a personalized surgery.

We try to reach the patient’s expectations, within the surgery limits.

In terms of shape and size, male and female faces are quite different.

We handle the forehead, nose, cheekbones, lips, chines, Adam’s apple remodeling, mandibular angles and neck, with the idea of harmonizing and softening the features that make the face more masculine.

The difference between the two types of face is obvious, and it’s necessary to analyze the facial features before the intervention.

In order to perform the facial feminization surgery, we have to do a face analysis with a CT in 3D and a photographic study.

The surgical procedures to carry out a facial feminization are the following ones:

Forehead reduction and orbits: the frontal bone is reduced to remove the bulging. The upper orbital arch remodeled and the eye touch is treated to make it more feminine. If you want to know more about this procedure click here.
