If you are a female transitioning into a male, we would like to offer you a consultation for our facial masculinization surgery at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa in Delray Beach, FL. When you look in the mirror there are details of your face that are more gender specific, such as the angles of your jaw and chin, the absence of an Adam's apple, your short brow, and your softer, rounder features. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can surgically enhance your face to look more masculine in your transition.
While the male scull is much larger than a female scull (this cannot be changed), we can still enhance your facial attributes to appear as a male face would: more angular with wider, larger features. Many of our female-to-male patients in transition will also take part in hormone therapy to increase testosterone production, which leads to thicker facial hair growth and other masculine facial features. Our goal at Inspire is to help each patient understand the FMS procedures that will give them maximum impact and their best results. FMS can greatly improve your self-esteem and confidence, as well as your appearance during and after the transition.
Suite of Procedures
Adam's Apple Enhancement
To create a more masculine facial profile, our plastic surgeon can enhance the appearance of an Adam's apple at the base of the throat for a female transitioning to male. Known as a thyroid cartilage enhancement, this procedure augments the area with a synthetic implant or a cartilage transplant.
By changing the width and projection of the nose with rhinoplasty, a female can have a more masculine nose. It is also important to design the nose to keep the balance and proportions of the rest of the face in check.
Cheek and Chin Augmentation
Cheek augmentation in the female-to-male transition should make the cheeks more angled and less round. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will place cheek implants that are sized and shaped to give the patient a more masculine mid-face shape. The chin can be made to appear longer and square (instead of round or oval). This enhancement can be produced with a synthetic implant or a contouring surgery (genioplasty or mentoplasty) to make the chin more masculine
A female's forehead can be lengthened and augmented to look more like some males: tall with a brow ridge. Our plastic surgeon can create a new hairline further back on the scalp, use an implant to visualize the brow ridge, and implement a surgical brow lift to lengthen the forehead.
To widen and sharpen the angles of the female jaw, we offer jaw contouring surgery. Our plastic surgeon may use an implant to recontour the jaw or reshape the jawbone with surgical techniques.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019
"I've only ever been here for botox but today I had my earlobes worked on by Dr.Schnitt! I used to gauge my ears in my teenage years and it's been a major regret in my adult years lol! I'm SO happy with how they look already. What I also love is that they let you choose your Pandora station, so I had the Bob Marley station on love this place! Staff is always so nice."- K.B. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2020
"Amazing Experience in an Emergency and After - Dr. Jack consulted with my family about scarring from tracheotomy when they had to decide to move me from intubation to a trach. Shd assured them she could fix it. She did the revision and no one notices it now even though it’s in the center of my neck."- C. / RealSelf / Dec 16, 2019
"Dr Schnitt is an absolute perfectionist and we had a wonderful experience with him. I would highly recommend him for your surgical needs. He's very hands on with the care of his patients and we really appreciated that. Check out his YouTube channel!"- C.S. / Yelp / Dec 01, 2019
"I cannot wait to have them repierced - It was a pleasure to have Dr. Megan Jack take care of my horribly thinning earlobes. I needed to completely have her rebuild my earlobes because recently a stud earring with the back fell through my original piercing. The other piercings had deteriorated so both earlobes were done. Dr Jack is very professional but extremely caring. Now that the lobes are fixed I can not wait to have them re pierced. Dr.Jack will be able to do that in about 5 weeks. My new earlobes look amazing.ESL"- E. / RealSelf / Nov 22, 2019
WHAT TO EXPECT
We can perform facial masculinization surgery under general anesthesia in our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility as an inpatient or outpatient surgery, depending on the procedure or procedures selected. For your health and safety, your plastic surgeon may recommend staging the surgeries in a series of operations instead of performing them all at once. Your cosmetic surgeries will require incision, and our talented surgeon will make these incision as inconspicuous as possible. During your treatment planning sessions, we will discuss with you in detail how your procedures will be performed, how long you will be in recovery, how to care for surgical incisions, and much more to ensure a smoother recovery.
Your aesthetics team may also recommend nonsurgical treatments to further enhance your face. We can offer injections of BOTOX® to lower and flatten the brow to make the eyebrows appear more masculine. Also, injectable dermal fillers, like Juvéderm® or Restylane®, can be implemented before surgery to show the patient how facial implants will look before they commit to a longer-lasting augmentation surgery.
Keep in mind that the facial skin will continue to age, and some of the cosmetic procedures performed on your face will mature as well.
