Facial feminization is the term given to a collection of procedures designed to make facial features more feminine. The Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago personalizes each and every treatment we perform by completing a full facial evaluation and discussing all possible options with you. No matter what look you want to achieve, we are confident that we can help you look and feel like the best version of you.
You may be a good candidate for facial feminization if you are a female who believes your facial features appear too masculine, a male who wants to improve the attractiveness of your face, or if you are transitioning from male to female. Ideal candidates are in generally good health and non-smokers. Before deciding to undergo facial feminization, consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon and make sure you understand the process of each individual procedure.
Facial feminization procedures are individualized to the needs and desires of each particular patient. A board-certified plastic surgeon will perform a facial evaluation and talk with you about the recommended procedures to achieve the appearance you want. Depending on the desired outcome, these procedures may include:
- Neck lift
- Brow lift
- Dermal fillers or fat grafting
- Scalp advancement
- Chin reshaping
- Jaw contouring
- Cheek augmentation
- Nasal tip refinement
- Upper lip enhancement
- Tracheal contouring
At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we take the time to explain all aspects of each procedure during a consultation, including associated risks and recovery.
Facial feminization, which is also sometimes referred to as gender reaffirmation surgery, is a relatively new concept in the field of plastic surgery; the individual procedures that encompass it, however, are well-practiced by our staff at the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago.
Based on our extensive experience, we will tailor a specific treatment plan to achieve the most optimal results for your personal situation. We pride ourselves on our ability to understand and implement the best course of care for each individual, and we never perform a procedure unless we know it is the absolute best course of treatment for you.
Since each treatment plan is unique, your plastic surgeon will thoroughly discuss the individual process that is best for you during your consultation, as well as the potential associated risks and recovery.
The cost of facial feminization varies greatly by individual, and insurance rarely covers this procedure. Your plastic surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including associated costs, during your consultation.
Our goal at the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago is to educate as well as excel in patient care. You can trust that our professional staff has your safety and wellbeing in mind at all times. Call us today to schedule a consultation, or use the Contact page to send us a message.
