Facial Feminization

Men and women have different facial features and many plastic surgeons do not have enough experience to specifically tailor their procedures for male vs. female. Approaching facial procedures with a “one size fits all” attitude can result in subtleties that tend to favor male facial features. Facial feminization procedures modify facial features to resemble typically female features.

Candidates for Facial Feminization

If you feel your facial features are too masculine, Dr. Nima can help customize facial surgical procedures to help you look more feminine. Many transgender women opt for facial feminization procedures to treat gender dysphoria.

The Procedure

Facial feminization procedures can include rhinoplasty, eyebrow lift, and cheek, chin, or jaw bone reduction in addition to non-invasive treatments like facial fillers, lip augmentation, and eyelash enhancement.

The Recovery

Recovery time depends on the type of procedure you have. Many women decide to combine a number of procedures to enhance feminine features.
