Facial Feminization Surgery for the Upper Face

Facial feminization surgery refers to a set of procedures that help make a face more feminine. This process usually involves highlighting the cheekbones, making the forehead more round, lowering the hairline, narrowing the jaw and nose, etc. Cosmetic surgeons focus on procedures of both the upper and lower face for the best, most natural-looking results.

First, let us understand the differences between male and female upper faces:

       Males have larger foreheads than females

       Male brow bones are conspicuous and project outwards

       Male eyes are more deeply set in and eyebrows are placed lower

When women present with these features, they usually opt for upper face feminization. In this article, we want to share the feminization procedures for the upper face.


Upper Face Facial Feminization Surgery Procedures

There are four main procedures done to feminize the upper face. Surgeons perform all facial feminization surgery procedures under general anaesthesia. They include:

Forehead Recontouring

Forehead recontouring alters the bone structure of the forehead region. To make the face more feminine, it is needed to remove the sharp edges and bulges that are seen on a male forehead. This changes a flat masculine forehead to a soft, rounded female one. The bone between the eyebrows protrudes considerably in men. This is also addressed by the removal and inward repositioning of this bone.

Forehead recontouring is often done alongside jawline contouring for that desirable heart-shaped face. Especially if the female has a broad forehead and jaw, this combination is ideal, producing very natural-looking results.

Brow Bone Recontouring

Also known as orbital recontouring, brow bone recontouring addresses specifically the area around the eyes. Male faces have a conspicuous brow ridge, present around the top and sides of the eyes. Females have smooth brows without this ridge.

Brow bone recontouring involves smoothening down this ridge for a more feminine look. Your surgeon usually performs this in combination with forehead recontouring through the same incision for superior results.

Brow Lift

A brow or forehead lift involves reattaching the muscles and tissues under the eyebrows to a higher position on the forehead. This procedure removes wrinkles, creating a more youthful appearance while also lifting the eyebrows for a more feminine look.

For women with high foreheads, surgeons sometimes use the hairline incision. The cut is made where the hair meets the forehead skin. From here, they can lift the forehead and eyebrows without adjusting the hairline. The incision is closed with fine sutures, and the results usually appear within a few weeks.

Scalp Advancement

During scalp advancement, the surgeon brings your hairline forward to make your forehead appear smaller. They do this by removing a small portion of your forehead skin after making an incision along the hairline.

If you have thinning hair, you may prefer a hair transplant over scalp advancement. But for women with an abundance of hair, scalp advancement works well.
