Beverly Hills Male Facial Feminization

Even with the aid of female hormones, the male to female (MtF) transformation does not always produce satisfying results. Facial plastic surgery can help a transsexual achieve a complete MtF transformation. When a patient is considering undergoing facial surgery, such as total facial feminization, it is important for that person to choose a professional who is experienced in this type of procedure.

Stephen J. Pincus, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a Beverly Hills facial feminization surgery professional who understands the physiognomy of the male and female facial structures.

Board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto), the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS), as well as a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), Dr. Pincus is qualified to perform facial cosmetic surgery.

Male Feminization Procedures

Depending on the desired look of the patient, Dr. Pincus may utilize the following procedures when performing facial feminizing surgery:

  • Brow lift surgery ("forehead lift"): The eyebrows are raised and arched to provide a more feminine quality to the eyes.
  • Hair transplantation ("hair restoration"): The reversal of male baldness may not be plausible with hormones alone; therefore, scalp flaps or hair transplants are used to correct pattern male baldness.
  • Cheek implants ("cheek augmentation"): Women generally have prominent cheekbones. Cheek implants may be inserted to provide the patient with more defined cheeks.
  • Nose surgery ("rhinoplasty"): A more aesthetically pleasing and delicate nose can be achieved with alterations of the size of the nose and the tip.

With one or a combination of these facial procedures, a male to female facial transformation can be fully achieved. Patients can feel and look more feminine with the help of facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Pincus.

Facial feminization surgery may also require Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood patients to reduce the prominence of the "Adam's apple" by undergoing a "laryngeal shave," also mistakenly known as a "tracheal shave."

For those Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and West Hollywood patients who would like to undergo facial feminization surgery, Dr. Pincus can preview options during an initial consultation.

To see examples of his patient results, patients may request before and after facial contouring surgery photos. For more information on this surgery, prospective patients can read Dr. Pincus' featured article "Facial Feminization in a Male to Female Transsexual."
