What procedures do I need to look more feminine? Is this salvageable? (photos)

A few small touches
You look great, and there is no one feature that sticks out as priority #1. There are a few procedures that would make subtle changes that I think you would really like. Forehead surgery to round out your hairline and remove what minimal brow bossing you now have would be something to consider. This would give you more freedom to wear your any way you wanted without worrying about showing your temporal recession. At the same lifting your eyebrows and removing some bone would help reduce the heaviness above your eyes. Reducing the angle of your jaw would be very feminizing. Your chin is taller and wider than those of most women, and it is slightly taller on the right. Reducing your chin and making it more symmetric would be a nice change. you have full cheek bones to the side, but adding volume under your eyes would look youthful and feminine. I also agree with lifting your lip and adding some volume. I would wait on revising your nose until after all of the other procedures. If you still don't like it then talk with someone about a revision rhinoplasty, but I think it is already nice and feminine. Good luck!

Thank you for your question and photos. I agree with you in that you don't need too much done. I think your nose looks good, only revise if it bothers you a lot. I would recommend forehead contouring, hairline lowering and browlifting. In terms of your jaw, some contouring of the chin area and sides will give it a softer more feminine look. Lip lift with lip aug will certainly help. Fat transfer/grafting can give a thin face a soft and feminine appearance as well. Good luck.
