Trans Facial Masculinization Surgery in Darien

Male facial features appear chiseled and defined. While testosterone hormone therapy is the first line of treatment for male transgender patients, it is often not enough to fully replicate traditional male facial features.

Many of our patients come to us seeking facial masculinization surgery in order to achieve a masculine face structure when HRT has failed to produce adequate results. While trans male hormonal therapy can be effective to a degree by making soft tissue appear more defined and angular, it is not possible to alter the underlying bone structure without surgery. If you are a transgender female-to-male patient that is struggling to assume a masculine gender role, trans-FMS surgery can help.

The Importance of Facial Masculinization in Gender Identity

Your face is often the first thing people notice about you. It cues the outside world to make assumptions about your gender identity. This can certainly be frustrating for trans males that were born with feminine facial features.

Choosing to undergo masculinization face surgery can help signal a trans male’s preferred gender to others in public settings, making gender transformation significantly easier. The Aesthetic Center has helped many transgender patients reveal their true selves with facial masculinization surgery.

FACIAL MASCULINIZATION SURGERY (FMS) FAQ

Surgical facial enhancement allows male transgender patients to assert their gender identity to the world. If you are concerned by facial features that appear “too feminine”, FMS surgery may be the right choice. The surgery is popular among transgender men that were assigned female at birth (AFAB).

Non-binary people may also seek surgical intervention to reduce prominent male facial features, achieving a face that is more compatible with a gender-neutral identity. If you are thinking about FMS surgery, no-obligation consultation with the plastic surgeons at The Aesthetic Center is an excellent tool to help you decide if FMS is the right gender-affirming surgery for you.

Testosterone is a hormone that has a great deal of influence on producing masculine facial features. Genetic variations also play a major role in regard to the gender patients were assigned at birth.

Masculine faces differ from feminine faces in several subtle ways. For example, men tend to have longer and more angular faces, a prominent brow ridge, a defined, square jawline, straighter eyebrows, and a more powerful chin than their female counterparts. FMS can address multiple areas if needed.

Whether you have one or two facial features that concern you, or you are not quite sure what you would like changed in order to appear more masculine, our surgeons will be pleased to guide you every step of the way.
