Jacqueline L’s Story
Several years ago, Jacqueline L approached Facialteam to discuss the possibilities for facial feminization surgery with our team of surgeons. Jacqueline L is a 70 year old patient who traveled from United Kingdom 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 Jacqueline L. Based on her goals and the recommendations from our surgical team we came up with the following treatment plan:
As Jacqueline L 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.
Feminization of the jaw was recommended to modify the size and shape of the mandibular body to have a more feminine appearance. The stereotypical female jaw exhibits a series of characteristics that commonly influence gender recognition, especially when combined with other social constructs associated with femininity, hence, this is a procedure that is often recommended for patients.
With chin feminization the height, width and projection of the chin can be harmonized, all of them give the face a more typically feminine appearance.
To compliment the set of procedures, a otoplasty was performed to give the facial area more volume and projection.
Shortly after her surgery, Jacqueline L sent us a written testimonial to express how she experienced her journey with Facialteam. We love to hear from our patients and try to share all these lovely words with our audience as it can greatly help other patients that are considering facial feminization surgery as well.
We also invited Jacqueline L 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!
