The face holds many clues to who we are – our race, age, and gender. Both the male and female sexes have their own unique facial traits that naturally give off either a more masculine or a more feminine appearance. While facial surgery only makes up part of a patient’s transition, it’s an extremely important aspect that can ultimately impact how gender is identified.
Dr. Zuliani’s unique knowledge of facial aesthetics and how they relate to gender can help you during this transition. For facial feminization, certain masculine markers are removed to soften the face. A reduction of the chin and nose, a smoothing of the cheeks, and changes to the eyes may be recommended. On the other hand, a more masculine look can be achieved with a more chiseled jawline and stronger facial structure. Dr. Zuliani will work closely with you and discuss your goals to develop a highly personalized plan for your surgery.
