Options for Facial Feminization

The facial feminization surgery is focused into addressing the facial features individually.

Forehead Contouring

The Forehead procedure focuses on contouring and reducing the prominence of the brow bone to give it a softer look. Patients with thicker brow bone often require more work. Those with a large brow bone, the front section of the bone is removed to get the desired angles.

Hairline Advancement

The hairline is another crucial element of facial feminization. Male hairlines often recede with age along with patterns of baldness. The scalp is often cut to move the hairline further down towards the face. The incision is hidden within the hair for more natural-looking results.


The objective behind rhinoplasty is to shape the nose to the patient’s ideal size and length. Rhinoplasty for facial feminization focuses on refining the different features of the nose and balancing overall proportions of the face.
