Facial feminization

Thank you for your question and photos. You have great skin and full hair although I cannot see your hairline. I would recommend focusing on the upper and middle thirds of your face. For your forehead, an incision is made in your hairline to get access to the brow bone. The bone is set back, and the bone on the rim of your eye socket is shaped to make your eyes bigger. When the incision is closed it will raise your eyebrows and lower your hairline. This will be the most dramatic as far as making your face look more feminine.

The other procedures I would include based on your photos would be placing cheek implants and making your nose more refined. I can't see your Adam's Apple, but that may need to be reduced as well.

Best of luck to you in your transition,
