Facial Feminization: The Surgical & Non-Surgical Options
Facial feminization is a facial contouring and gender confirmation surgery for transgender women that reduces and alters their masculine facial features. The surgery is not one-size-fits-all because every face will differ in its features. A Seattle facial feminization procedure can consist of: a rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation, jaw contouring, lip augmentation, hairline alterations, and contouring the forehead.
Not every patient will desire or need all of these procedures and the options for each of these procedures can range from temporary, non-surgical options to permanent, surgical ones. Among the procedures with surgical and non-surgical options include:
Women tend to have more defined and rounded cheeks. Depending on your goals for this area, the look you want may be achieved with dermal filler injections to the area. While these will need to refresh a few times a year, this a non-surgical option. Cheek implants and bone grafting are surgical options that provide permanent augmentation.
Lip fillers are all the rage for women these days and everyone wants plump, flattering lips. Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are among the most popular choices. However, surgical options do exist. Soft implants can be placed for permanent lip augmentation and a lip lift performed for droopy or those who need an enhancement to the upper lip.
Everyone knows about the surgical nose job that can alter the appearance of the nose. However, Dr. Sajan can also perform a non-surgical rhinoplasty for more minor corrections or enhancements to the nose. Depending on your goals this may be a viable option for your transgender rhinoplasty.
