Facial Masculinization Surgery
Fort Lauderdale & Delray Beach

If you are a female transitioning into a male, we would like to offer you a consultation for our facial masculinization surgery in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach, FL. When you look in the mirror, you may find some gender-specific facial details, such as the angles of your jaw and chin, the absence of an Adam’s apple, a short brow, and softer features. Our plastic surgeons can surgically masculinize your face, so when you look at the mirror, you see a face that looks authentically you.

The Anatomical Qualities
Of Masculine Faces

Masculine facial features typically exhibit distinct anatomical characteristics that differentiate them from feminine ones, such as a prominent jawline with well-defined angles, broad and flat foreheads, and a pronounced brow ridge. The male skull is also usually much larger than the female skull, which can’t be changed. But we can still enhance your facial attributes to appear as a male face would: more angular, with wider, larger features.

Many of our female-to-male patients in transition also take part in hormone therapy to increase testosterone production, which leads to thicker facial hair growth and other masculine facial features. We aim to help patients understand the FMS procedures that will give them maximum impact and the best results. FMS can greatly improve your self-esteem, confidence, and appearance during and after the transition.

About Facial Masculinization Surgery

Facial masculinization surgery (FMS) is a specialized set of surgical procedures aimed at transforming the facial appearance of individuals who seek a more masculine look in alignment with their gender identity. FMS encompasses various techniques, including jawline contouring, chin augmentation, cheek implants, rhinoplasty, and Adam’s apple enhancement. This highly personalized approach helps individuals achieve the facial aesthetics that best reflect their gender expression, improving both self-confidence and overall well-being.

Your aesthetics team may also recommend nonsurgical treatments to further enhance your face. We can offer injections of BOTOX to lower and flatten the brow to make the eyebrows appear more masculine. Furthermore, injectable dermal fillers, like Juvéderm or Restylane, can be implemented before surgery to show you how facial implants will look before you commit to a longer-lasting augmentation surgery.

Your Facial Masculinization
Surgery Consultation

Your FMS consultation typically begins with a comprehensive discussion of your expectations, concerns, and desired outcomes. You can ask questions and share any reference images or specific features you want to enhance. The surgeon will thoroughly evaluate your facial anatomy, jawline structure, chin projection, cheek contour, and brow prominence.

They will use this assessment to recommend appropriate FMS procedures to help you achieve your desired masculine appearance. You’ll collaborate with the surgeon to develop a treatment plan that aligns with your goals, ensuring a clear understanding of the surgical process. The surgeon will also discuss how your procedures will be performed, how long you will be in recovery, how to care for surgical incisions, and much more.

Adam’s Apple Enhancement

Adam’s apple enhancement augments the laryngeal prominence (Adam’s apple). It involves the placement of a synthetic implant or a cartilage transplant in the throat area. The surgeon makes a small incision in the neck and positions the implant or graft. Over time, the body’s tissues integrate with the implant or graft, resulting in a more masculine neck contour.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty reshapes and enhances the appearance of the nose. A skilled surgeon can modify the nose’s size, shape, and structure, addressing features such as the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils. The goal is to create a nose that aligns with your desired masculine appearance, typically by increasing the nasal bridge’s prominence and refining its contours.

Cheek Augmentation

Cheek augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to enhance the volume and definition of the cheeks. The surgeon makes small incisions inside the mouth or along the natural creases of the face to insert synthetic implants into the targeted areas of the cheeks. The cheek implants are sized and shaped to give you a more masculine mid-face shape.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation improves the appearance of the chin by enhancing its size and projection. The chin can be made to appear longer and square (instead of round or oval). This can be produced with a synthetic implant (the size and shape are selected after a consultation) or a contouring surgery (genioplasty or mentoplasty) to make the chin more masculine.

Forehead Lengthening

Forehead lengthening alters the appearance of the forehead, typically performed to make a female’s forehead resemble a taller, more masculine one with a brow ridge. Our plastic surgeon can create a new hairline further back on the scalp to increase the perceived length of the forehead, use an implant to create the brow ridge and lengthen the forehead.

Jaw Contouring

Jaw contouring enhances the appearance of the jaw by creating a wider and sharper jawline. This can be done using synthetic implants to augment and reshape the jawline. Alternatively, surgical methods can be used to reshape the jawbone itself. These techniques contribute to a more masculine appearance by widening and sharpening the angles of the jaw.

Facial Masculinization Surgery:
What To Expect

We can perform facial masculinization surgery in Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach under general anesthesia in our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility as an inpatient or outpatient surgery, depending on the procedure or procedures selected. For your health and safety, your plastic surgeon may recommend staging the surgeries in a series of operations instead of performing them all at once.

Facial masculinization surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Your cosmetic surgeries will require incision, and our talented surgeon will make these incisions as inconspicuous as possible. After surgery, you may be asked to stay overnight for observation. Our team of nurses will monitor your progress during recovery before allowing you to return home.
