Sara’s Story

Several years ago, Sara approached Facialteam to discuss the possibilities for facial feminization surgery with our team of surgeons.

Sara is a 29 year old patient who traveled from Norway 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 Sara.

Based on her goals and the recommendations from our surgical team we came up with the following treatment plan:

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 emphasize the cheeks and make Sara’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.

Just like the majority of trans women who have been through puberty, Sara considered feminizing the area of the neck by reducing the size of the Adam’s Apple.

Our method TContour® allows us to achieve natural and safe results in tracheal shaves, with a less visible Adam’s Apple as a result.

Longer, thinner upper lips with little visibility of the upper teeth are a typical masculine trait. To compliment the set of procedures, a feminizing lip lift was performed to give the red area of the lips more volume and projection.
