As a first step, you will have a thoughtful, understanding consultation with Dr. Sajan to discuss your concerns, interests, goals and facial ideal. He will examine your facial features, skin and muscle tone, and study your medical history, previous surgeries, drug sensitivities, lifestyle and daily habits.
Dr. Sajan will develop a surgical plan customized specifically for your needs and aesthetic goals. From there, the surgery will vary based on which procedures are needed to achieve your desired results.
Your facial masculinization will begin with general anesthesia.
During this procedure, an incision will be made, usually inside the mouth. The implant will then be placed along the jawbone. Implants are made of silicone or a polyethylene known as Medpor. Once the implant is in place, the incision is carefully closed. The procedure takes about one hour.
After your jaw implant procedure, there will be swelling, but you will see results immediately. The implants are permanent, with a very low chance of shifting or infection.
For chin augmentation, the incision is made either inside the mouth or outside, under the chin. A pocket is created under the muscles, in front of the chin bone, and the implant is placed inside. The implant may be made of bone, fat tissue, silicone or other materials. Choice of implant material will be decided on ahead of time with Dr. Sajan.
Once the implant has been inserted, it may need to be attached to the bone with stitches or screws. Once the implant is secured in place, the incisions are closed, taking care to keep scarring for a minimum.
You will see immediate results, although there will be initial swelling and bruising. Most chin implants last for a lifetime.
Brow enhancement with fat transfer
For this procedure, fat will be removed with gentle liposuction from an area of the body that has unwanted, excess fat. The fat is purified and carefully transferred into the brow to achieve a heavier, more masculine contour. Fat can be transferred to the forehead, the area between the brows (called the glabella), and the area under and around the eyes, which creates a thicker, stronger and more male facial appearance.
Initial results after facial fat transfer will fade over the following months as some of the fat cells are reabsorbed by the body, which Dr. Sajan expects and compensations for. After about six months, there will be no further reduction, and the final results can be considered permanent.
Between the liposuction and transfer procedure, recovery time can take up to two weeks, which includes swelling, redness, and soreness. However, you will be able to return to work in a few days.
