Are You Considering Facial Feminization Surgery?
For many transgender women, having their facial features refined has been an important step in their transition, with many considering it the most essential part of their transformation.
If you are transfeminine with a prominent chin, heavy brow, or strong lower jaw that you feel detracts from your femininity, perhaps you would like your appearance to more closely match the way you feel inside.
Plastic surgeons Jordan Deschamps-Braly, M.D. and Douglas K. Ousterhout, M.D., are preeminent surgeons in the field of plastic surgery known as facial feminization surgery (FFS). They specialize in feminizing the craniofacial structure of transgender women. In Facial Feminization, Drs. Deschamps-Braly and Ousterhout discuss the many types of FFS procedures they perform:
- Scalp advancement
- Chin feminization
- Forehead feminization
- Lower jaw tapering
- Temple augmentation
- Thyroid cartilage reduction
- Cheek contouring
- Lower jaw repositioning
- Nose reshaping
- Upper jaw repositioning
- Upper lip reshaping
- Hair transplantation
This comprehensive book contains more than two hundred before- and-after photos of FFS patients as well as of procedures to rejuvenate the face such as facelifts, eyelid lifts, and nose reshaping. The authors also provide information on the recovery process for each procedure, as well as side effects and potential complications. This new edition also includes case studies from individuals just like you who have undergone facial feminization surgery—they share their results, recent photos, and how it impacted their lives.
