Since one’s personality and gender identity are primarily defined by the face, obtaining a manly facial appearance is an important treatment goal for most transmen. Facial Masculinization Surgery (FMS) typically focuses on achieving facial features that are generally perceived as masculine to improve self-esteem and self-image.
The most common features that any transman would desire would include longer, larger, and more angular contours with a prominent nose, thick eyebrows, a square jaw, a visible Adam’s apple, etc. Considering your overall facial proportions and anatomy, Dr. Sanghvi suggests a customized combination of aesthetic treatments for your female-to-male FMS.
At Karishma Transgender Clinic, we offer a full suite of these procedures under one roof. Following are some of the essential female-to-male facial reconstruction surgeries we offer to help you sport a manly look:
Here, the rhinoplasty procedure aims at creating a larger and wider nose by increasing the nasal projection. Often referred to as a nose job, it utilizes unique sculpting and grafting techniques to obtain the best possible aesthetic result in female-to-male transition.
Dr. Sanghvi suggests rhinoplasty to most transmen who wish to transform their facial appearance completely. Nose enhancement can also be done through non-surgical nose implants, which are exclusively performed at Karishma Transgender Clinic.
A forehead augmentation procedure aims to create a larger, more angular forehead by pulling up the hairline. The increased distance between the eyebrows and hairline helps define a masculine facial appearance.
Dr. Sanghvi creates the necessary incision within the hairline to avoid visible scarring. The forehead skin is lifted and pulled backward as required. The skin being highly elastic easily conforms to the new forehead shape.
Chin & Jaw Recontouring
The jawline and chin are an important feature of a man’s face as they are primarily responsible for the chiseled, rugged look. On the contrary, trans males have a more feminine jaw and chin, which are skinny and pointy. Dr. Sanghvi may suggest these surgeries if you have such a prominently feminine lower face.
For chin recontouring, the surgeon makes an incision from inside the mouth, and the chin bone is moved, or implants are placed to make it broader. As for the jaw, the surgeon places implants over the jawbone to achieve masculine facial proportions and increase the overall width of the face.
The Adam’s apple, which is the thyroid cartilage bone, is also considered a prominent male factor. Since it is an elective procedure, you can choose to have an enhanced Adam’s apple to add more masculinity to your overall appearance.
During this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the under-chin region, and a cartilage-like implant is placed over the through muscles. The neck muscles are then closed over the implant in order to protect the vocal cords. Dr. Sanghvi will customize these procedures to offer more accurate results that est suit your unique face.
Most trans men are able to achieve many male facial features through testosterone hormone therapy. Men have different facial characteristics primarily due to testosterone, which is not produced naturally in transmen. Inducing this hormone changes the facial structure and triggers facial hair growth and male sexual arousal factors.
Dr. Sanghvi is an expert in this subject and can guide you in deciding whether you need hormone therapy and to what extent. There are different ways of performing hormone therapy, which he will explain in depth during your initial consultation.
