As part of a transgender transition, a trans woman may undergo surgical procedures to achieve a more feminine look. This can include breast augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift, and facial feminization. While the others are commonly performed procedures in cisgender women, what is facial feminization surgery?
Facial feminization is a surgery that combines multiple procedures to create a more feminine face. It is customized for every individual patient and no two procedures will look exactly the same. Examples of surgeries that are sometimes performed during facial feminization include:
Dr. Jonov will examine your face and goals to determine which procedures will provide you the best results. Facial feminization is highly customizable.

Facial feminization surgery is a procedure that many transgender women choose to undergo to create feminine facial features. Every surgery will differ based on patient expectations, goals, and anatomy. Before the procedure, many patients wonder: what procedures are performed during a facial feminization?
When looking at the major differences between masculine features and feminine features, the most common areas addressed during facial feminization are the forehead and chin. Men tend to have wider foreheads and longer chins. Therefore, a brow lift and chin reduction sometimes feature during the procedure.
A bullhorn lip lift can also be performed during facial feminization since men often have thinner upper lips than women. The bullhorn lip lift exposes more of the upper lip to create a more feminine appearance. It also shortens the distance between the nose and upper lip.
While every patient’s face will have unique needs, other procedures that Dr. Jonov may perform as part of a facial feminization procedure including: rhinoplasty, tracheal shave, midface lift, brow reduction, cheek implants, and chin implant surgery.
