Facial feminization is a set of cosmetic procedures done to soften typical male facial features and provide more classically feminine features to the face and neck. FFS is typically sought by the transgender population but can be performed for anyone seeking to soften their facial features. The selection of procedures is customized for each person based on their aesthetic goals. Some of the most popular procedures performed by Dr. Totonchi include:

Tracheal Shave: A tracheal shave reduces the size of the Adam’s apple to achieve a smoother, more elongated appearance of the neck. A tracheal shave is done through a small incision on the anterior neck which Dr Totonchi uses to “shave” down the tracheal cartilage. Tracheal shave is one of the simplest surgeries done to obtain feminine features and can be performed under local anesthetic.

Genioplasty: Transgender genioplasty is performed to transform a wider, flatter, longer, and more squared masculine chin to a narrower, shorter, more rounded female chin. The chin plays a crucial role in the proportions and balance of facial features.

Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty can be a key element in transgender facial feminization. The male nose, like the masculine chin, is typically longer, wider, and larger than the female nose which is generally shorter, narrower, and smaller in relation to female features. The nasal tip is generally adjusted to give a upward feminine appearance rather than the typical male downward nasal appearance.

Upper lip lift/Lip augmentation: The upper lip lift is generally done in combination with the rhinoplasty procedure. A small incision is made under the nose to lift the upper lip and decrease the distance between the nose and the upper lip. Decreasing the distance between the nose and upper lip gives a more feminine balance to the face.

Forehead contouring (frontal bossing): Forehead contouring involves “shaving” down the frontal bone and altering its pronounced shape. Masculine foreheads have a heavy bony ridge above the eyes, just below the eyebrows. Forehead contouring typically removes this ridge and softens the appearance of the forehead and facial features.

Hairline advancement (scalp advancement): Scalp advancement is a procedure done to move the hairline forward, decreasing the prominence of the forehead. The procedure is used to decrease the distance between the hairline and the eyebrows giving a more youthful, feminine appearance.

Brow lift: The brow lift/forehead lift gives the most dramatic FFS results. The brow lift procedure moves the eyebrows to a higher set position on the forehead, giving a softer, wide eyed, feminine appearance. The brow lift can be used in combination with the scalp advancement procedure to give a more youthful feminine aesthetic outcome.

Cheek augmentation: Cheek augmentation can be achieved with fat grafting and/or implants. Cheek augmentation helps to round out the face giving it a feminine appearance. The incisions used to insert cheek implants or fat grafting are made through the mouth so there is no evident scar on the surface of the face.

What should I expect after facial feminization surgery?

Facial feminization surgery has a wide range of recovery time depending on the combination of procedures that are chosen. Generally speaking, the recovery time is approximately 2-3 weeks when involving one of these procedures or a combination of these: forehead contouring, hairline advancement, brow lift, rhinoplasty or genioplasty.

The combination of these procedures, however, does not increase the recovery time. The recovery time remains 2-3 weeks. When adding the rhinoplasty procedure, nasal splints and stents are kept in placed for 2 weeks before removal.

The tracheal shave procedure performed alone does not have any “downtime”.
