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.

Can you see the facelift scars? When the facelift scars are placed strategically and closed in a meticulous fashion, the scars are hard to see at the 6-12 month mark.

This is a great case highlighting how we manage a crooked nose after a previous septoplasty. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose straightened by structuring the nose with rib cartilage, and the tip was lifted, rotated and refined. Beautiful and natural 6 month result for this patient. Posted with permission.

Beautiful breast augmentation result for this patient. In this case we used a 350 cc gel implant, and placed the implant through a periareolar approach and in a submuscular plane. The patient is 5’4” and 125 lbs and went from a B cup to a full C/small D cup. Posted with permission.

This is a great case to highlight the complexities associated with creating an aesthetic tip and how small changes can yield significant aesthetic improvement. In this case, the patient had a droopy tip, hanging columella, and too much nostril show. In the post-operative views you can visualize a tip that is lifted, more projected, and the presence of a more aesthetic alar-columellar relationship. Happy for this patient and her beautiful and natural result. Posted with permission.

Proud of our research team for getting this published. In this article, we developed a unique risk assessment tool to predict major complications in facial aesthetic surgery. Thank you to the Aesthetic Surgery Journal for publishing our work.

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.
