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.

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.

The hardest type of rhinoplasties for plastic surgeons to perform are cleft rhinoplasties. A major reason is that the anatomy of the nose and midface are asymmetric, therefore, you have an asymmetric nose sitting on top of an asymmetric midface. In this case, I used rib cartilage to rebuild the cartilage of the nose and fat transfer to improve asymmetries of the midface and lips. In the post-operative frontal views, you can see a straighter nose, the tip has been lifted, and the right nostril has been brought down and inwards. On profile view, you can see the dorsal hump was lowered, the tip of the nose has been lifted, rotated, and refined. The fat was placed in the cheeks and upper lip to improve the midface deficiency that is common in cleft lip patients. Posted with permission.

Plastic surgery can be dramatic or understated. This is a before and after with subtle changes to improve the proportions and aesthetics of the nose in a natural way. This patient wanted only small changes of the dorsum and tip. In the post-operative photos, you can visualize the dorsal hump has been removed and the tip has been refined, slightly rotated and projected. Posted with permission.

Couldn’t be happier for this beautiful patient and her natural before and after results. This patient is 3 months out from a deep plane or sub-SMAS facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. Pay close attention to the neck, jawline, and midface or cheeks. In the post-operative views you can see a well-defined neck and jawline. The face appears less bottom heavy, there is restoration of the midface volume, and the overall facial configuration is more heart-shaped and youthful. Posted with permission.

It’s been a minute but this is a great before and after of a facial feminization case and this patient is only 6 weeks out from surgery. Pay close attention to the hairline, the forehead, orbital rims, eyebrows, nose, chin and jawline. Does this patient look like they had major surgery 6 weeks ago? Posted with permission.

Check out this interesting rhinoplasty case where I performed a combined primary rhinoplasty and sliding genioplasty. Fixing the crooked or deviated nose is very challenging for all rhinoplasty surgeons and the goal is to achieve a straighter nose because a perfectly straight nose does not exist. On the frontal view, you can see a nose that is midline and with beautiful dorsal aesthetic lines. On the profile view, you can visual a nice nasal profile with a slight break at the tip. The sliding genioplasty complements the nose and improves the overall proportions and balance of the face. A chin implant would not be able to achieve this amount of chin augmentation or chin length.

It’s never too early to starting thinking about that summer body. This patient underwent a mommy makeover or a breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck. Pay close attention to the belly button, this patient had an umbilical hernia, which made the reconstruction of her belly button even harder. Most plastic surgeons take their time trying to make the belly button look as natural as possible since the appearance of the belly button can be an obvious sign that the patient had a tummy tuck.

A facial feminization case that highlights how subtle changes can have a major impact on the balance and proportions of the face. Do the post-operative images appear softer, less angular, more refined, and more heart-shaped rather than square-shaped? Can you tell what surgeries were performed? Hint: look closely at the forehead/orbital rims, nose, chin, jawline, and neck. Posted with permission.
