Facial Masculinization
Feel Beautiful Inside and Out

 

Facial Masculinization Chicago

Facial masculinization is a set of surgical procedures that alter the features of the face to appear more masculine. Looking at the way you feel inside is critical to self-esteem and happiness; the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago understands that in order for you to feel like the best version of yourself, you should look like the best version of yourself.

Facial Masculinization

CANDIDATES OF FACIAL MASCULINIZATION

Facial masculinization is ideal for those, male or female, who believe their facial features are too feminine, as well as those transitioning from female to male. Male facial features tend to include a larger chin, a longer forehead, and a wider jaw. Always consult with your doctor to get a thorough evaluation of your facial anatomy before making the decision to undergo this surgery.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CONSULTATION

Facial masculinization involves several procedures that 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:

  • Jaw reshaping
  • Chin contouring
  • Forehead lengthening
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Thyroid cartilage enhancement (Adam’s apple surgery)

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.

THE PROCESS OF FACIAL MASCULINIZATION

Facial masculinization, which is also known as gender reaffirmation surgery, is not a single procedure, but a set of procedures that alter the shape and features of the face. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we create a personalized treatment plan with the goal of achieving your desired results. We understand that this type of process is creating a version of you that externally matches how you feel inside, and we pride ourselves on the ability to implement the best course of care for each patient.

The individual procedures involved in this surgery should be discussed with your plastic surgeon. The potential complications and recovery for each procedure vary, so it is best to have an initial consultation to talk about treatment options before making a decision to have this surgery.

His team of nurses; as well as doctors were kind, caring, and comforting! Lauryn, his patient coordinator at the office downtown, is very welcoming and warm too!! She always responds expeditiously during and after office hours!! I absolutely Loved my experience and this Practice!!

WHAT DOES FACIAL MASCULINIZATION COST?

The process of facial masculinization is a highly individualized course of treatment and varies greatly between patients; therefore, it is difficult to provide an approximate cost associated with it. Your plastic surgeon should discuss all aspects of the procedure, including associated costs, during your consultation.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION

At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we aim to educate our patients to the best of our ability. If you have any questions about facial masculinization or if you think it is the right course for you, give us a call to schedule a consultation. The cost of facial masculinization varies by the individual treatment plan, and insurance rarely covers this procedure; however, our clinic will discuss all costs and payment options. Our doctors and staff ensure that each patient is compassionately and professionally guided through the entire evaluation, from initial consultation until well after recovery.

3 month follow-up on this patient who wanted improvement in the projection of her chin and definition of the jawline. The patient has retrogenia or a small chin and underwent #chinaugmentation with a #genioplasty. In the pre-operative photos, you can see the chin is short and recessed and therefore I moved the chin forward and down. In the post-operative photos you can see improvement in the projection of the chin, a more defined jawline and neck, and a more balanced lower 1/3 of the face. This case highlights the advantages of a genioplasty versus a chin implant, a chin implant cannot lengthen and advance the chin to the same extent that a genioplasty can. Posted with permission.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

Proud of our research team for getting this important manuscript published in the #1 plastic surgery journal in the world. In this study, we looked at the published literature to develop guidelines on how to treat visual impairments related to droopy eyelids and excess skin of the eyelids.

Happy for this patient who underwent full facial rejuvenation surgery, which included a brow lift, upper/lower blepharoplasty, facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. How much younger does he look now? Posted with permission.

One year follow-up on a #BBL or Brazilian butt lift. As you can see from the post-operative photos, the fat that is transferred stays and is permanent. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Challenging #tertiaryrhinoplasty on this patient who had nasal deviation, a dorsal hump, and an under-rotated/under-projected tip. In the post-operative photos, you can see a straighter nose with more symmetric dorsal aesthetic lines and tip defining points. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.
