Facial Masculinization Surgery
Facial masculinization surgery (FMS) is a crucial component of gender affirming procedures for transgender men and gender non-conforming individuals. This set of surgical techniques is designed to enhance masculine facial features and create a more gender-aligned appearance. FMS can encompass a range of procedures, including:
- Adam’s apple enhancement: This procedure involves the surgical enhancement of the laryngeal prominence (Adam’s apple) to create a more prominent and masculine neck.
- Rhinoplasty: This surgery reshapes the nose to create a more angular and masculine profile, often involving changes to the bridge, tip, and nostrils.
- Cheek and chin augmentation: Augmentation of the cheekbones and chin can provide a more defined and angular appearance, contributing to a more masculine facial structure.
- Forehead lengthening: Forehead augmentation or reconstruction can reduce the appearance of a rounded or feminine forehead, creating a flatter, more masculine contour.
- Jaw contouring: Jawline surgery can involve reshaping the jaw to create a broader, more angular look, which is typically associated with male facial features.
FTM Top Surgery
FTM (Female-to-Male) top surgery, also known as chest masculinization surgery or simply top surgery, is a gender affirming procedure to create a more masculine chest for transgender men and non-binary individuals assigned female at birth. It involves the removal of breast tissue and reshaping the chest to create a flatter, more masculine contour. FTM top surgery can be performed using the following techniques:
- Double Incision Mastectomy: This technique involves making horizontal incisions across the chest to remove breast tissue and excess skin. It is suitable for individuals with larger breasts and provides precise control over chest contouring.
- Periareolar or Keyhole Mastectomy: Periareolar mastectomy, also known as keyhole mastectomy, uses smaller incisions around the areola to remove breast tissue and achieve a flatter chest. This technique is ideal for those with smaller breasts.
- Inverted-T Top Surgery: Inverted-T top surgery combines aspects of both double incision and periareolar mastectomy. This technique allows for more extensive tissue removal while preserving the nipple and areola.
