Several years ago, Carmen approached Facialteam to discuss the possibilities for facial feminization surgery with our team of surgeons. Carmen is a 54 year old patient who traveled from Spain to have a consultation with our surgeons to evaluate her facial features and come up with the right selection of facial feminization procedures, completely personalized for Carmen. Based on her goals and the recommendations from our surgical team we came up with the following treatment plan:
As Carmen considered the area around her eyes had masculine traits and expressed her interest in a brow bone reduction, part of the process of feminizing the forehead region. Forehead feminization procedures at Facialteam aim to achieve a significant and specific change in the expression around the eyes, the ultimate goal of our FOREContour® method is to approximate the original contours and position of the facial bone and eyebrows, before hormones caused changes in puberty.
To emphasize the cheeks and make Carmen’s eyes appear larger, a feminizing rhinoplasty was recommended. As the central feature of the face, a more feminine nose often is key for the global result of facial feminization surgery.
Nose feminization is often combined with a forehead reconstruction to create a smooth transition from the brow bone to the nose.
We invited Carmen for an interview to understand better how she experienced her surgery with Facialteam and how Facial Feminization Surgery changed her life.
Hearing these stories from our patients is emotional but really makes our work worth it!
